Firefighters in Edinburg, Texas, spent a long time putting out a warehouse fire this week. Nearly three dozen professionals battled the blaze that burned up 2,000 pounds of marijuana.

The Associated Press reports:
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents were investigating the origin of the drugs. The Hidalgo County fire marshal was investigating whether arson was the cause.

Fire Chief Shawn Snider said Thursday the firefighters were exposed to so much marijuana smoke that they would not be able to pass a drug test, despite wearing air packs to prevent them from inhaling toxic or hazardous fumes.
Or so the firefighters told the chief.

Ron, I just emailed you a copy of an interview with one of the firefighters. I don't know how to load it on my blog or else I would load it there.
It is certainly funny in a 420 way.
