Police are still trying to smoke out the three would-be robbers. And, yes, it was all caught on video (thank you for asking). A Canadian pot shop employee may have just experienced the ultimate bong hit. The attempted robbery occurred last Thursday afternoon at the Recreational Cannabis Farmers Market in Shannonville, Ontario. He used the marijuana smoking apparatus to fight off three robbers who were brandishing canisters of bear spray and with their faces covered, Mashable reported. Surveillance video shows the clerk grabbing a bong and using it as a weapon.
The robbers robbers bear mace on two store employees, a man and a woman, but the male clerk didn’t let that stop him from protecting the merchandise. It seems like something out of a Cheech & Chong movie, but it worked, according to a Facebook post from the Tyendinaga Police Service: The robbers left the store without any merchandise and fled in a white SUV. Officials are still looking for the would-be thieves. Anybody with information is asked to contact the Tyendinaga Police Service at (613) 967-3888. The complete video can be seen on YouTube.
