In the most glorious feat of stoner bravery, a budtender used a bong to stave off attackers.
Late on Thursday (Sept 6) afternoon in Shannonville, ON, three men burst into a dispensary and unloaded a can of bear mace at two employees, while a fourth assailant was waiting in a getaway vehicle.
Luckily for cannabis lovers everywhere, the heroic moment was caught on a security camera and aired on social media.
The footage, which went viral, shows a male employee shrugging off a face full of the chemical deterrent. Barry Bongs then grabs a glass piece and starts swinging, effectively chasing the thugs out of the dispensary.
And, like the plot of an overcooked Hollywood action movie, the group sped off in a white van.
Police verified the attack in a Facebook post on Friday (Sept 7) and identified the shop as Recreational Cannabis Farmers Market—located just east of Toronto.
Sadly, Weedscalibur suffered a shattering blow in the chaos. The clerk smoked the bong on the door frame.
