Today, drug law enforcers in Senegal invited the press to watch 4.5 tonnes of cannabis being burnt and social media is asking if observers inhaled the smoke and get stoned themselves?
Reporters who took pictures in the Mamelles neighbourhood of the capital, Dakar, said he watched the proceedings for a while but left specifically because he did not want to get high.
The cannabis, which is illegal in Senegal, was confiscated along with small amounts of cocaine and heroin.
The idea of holding a press conference to burn cannabis has long been the butt of jokes – including this scene in the British comedy Drop the Dead Donkey where the reporter gets increasingly high while making a TV dispatch.
