A false alarm hostage shut down part of King street yesterday after it was reported that a person entered a Cannabis shop with a gun. Though the whole incident was determined as a false alarm, Toronto police took every precaution in the two hour stand-off.
After police stormed the building, one officer was tasked with reporting the news to the media, assuring Torontonians the Cannabis shop was safe.
One Torontonian, an avid pot smoker broke the tension during the press announcement by asking if since the investigation was over, he could go in and purchase some weed. The Police officer couldn’t hold back her laughter.
Watch the hilarious, and uniquely Toronto video below:
Cop: It's safe. There's no one with a gun at the dispensary
Dude: So can I buy pot now?
Cop: *barely holds in laughter*
