A drone dropped scores of bags of cannabis over Rabin Square, attracting people who scrambled to scoop up as many bags as they could tote.
The bags of pot were dropped by the Telegram group’s “green drone,” which promotes the legalization of weed in Israel, with the group’s slogan being “free love.” Before releasing the reefer over Tel Aviv, the organization published content on Telegram, hinting at the designed initiative. The message read: “It’s time my dear brothers. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s the green drone, handing out free cannabis from the sky… Enjoy my beloved brothers, this is your pilot brother, making sure we all get some free love.”
The message too disclosed that the effort was part of the group’s festive unveiling of a new delivery system called “rain of cannabis.” The message stated: “We’re launching the ‘rain of cannabis’ project, that will include a weekly delivery to different parts of the country of 1 kilo of cannabis divided into free 2 gram bags.” The devisers behind the operation also discussed the impending threat of a lockdown levied by the government in an effort to curve the spread of the COVID-19 epidemic, saying that the predicament “requires thinking outside the box and coming up with new ways of getting cannabis to consumers.”

According to officials, the distribution of a controlled dangerous substance is against the law. The suspects who were detained will be debriefed and dealt with consequently.
