Warehouse fire claims ton of marijuana

Fri Jun 22, 6:28 AM ET

EDINBURG, Texas - Firefighters who spent half an hour fighting a blaze in which 2,000 pounds of marijuana went up in smoke breathed so much of it that they would have failed a drug test, a fire chief said.

It took more than 35 firefighters, 1,000 gallons of water and five gallons of chemical suppressant to extinguish the warehouse blaze on Wednesday, Fire Chief Shawn Snider said.

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.

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.

I'd love to be a hotdog vendor in the area. I would claim "I can't break that kind of money" to everyone.

Rich, I tells ya!

reminds me of the simpsons episode where they burn a ton of weed and everyone lines up to inhale.....but then Chief Wiggum orders Lou to "throw a few bags of barber hair on there!" Classic.

"Dude...look at that fire."
"Yeah, man. Shouldn't we put it out or something?"
"No, man. Let's get some Doritos."
"Sweet!"

That almost sounds like a idea for a Beavis and Butthead episode. They would be firefighters for career day and have to go extinguish that.

I bet you could make the mother-of-all-bongs with a pump truck, some firehose and a breathing mask.

I'm pretty sure a cement mixer, a screen door, and a few lengths of pipe could make for a nice multi-headed pipe too.
