National police twitter account advises to travel with joints ready rolled and hidden in a packet of cigarettes.
This controversial advice has caused a wave of amazement among users of the social network.
Everything started when the cultural magazine JotDown asked for advice from the police twitter account, they enquired about travelling abroad with four joints wanting to know if it was better to put them in checked in luggage or better to have them on themselves. The police responded that it would be better to take them ready rolled and hidden where the dogs would not find them although they did advise that they would be risking a complaint for public consumption.

After being thanked by the magazine the policeman admitted that he had had to consult the matter with a veteran agent.
Following this conversation, the tweets published by the police disappeared and were replaced by one saying that to avoid confusion the owning or consumption of drugs in public places would be liable for a sanction.
Police later explained that the tweet had been an unfortunate and confusing error.
Some hours later the policeman responsible for the tweets said that it had all been a mistake and that his advice had been taken the wrong way. He had meant the opposite of what he had said.
