TWO men, 67 and 78, have been charged for making a cake with cannabis that got a group of pensioners hallucinating after eating it.
The men frequented a bar in Arta where they take it in turns to bake cakes then bring them in to share.
This time the cake –a traditional ‘coca’ – had been made by one of the accused, who was given the drug by his fellow pensioner.
According to Guardia Civil, all the pensioners knew what was in the cake before eating it.
Only three people, the bar owners and a family member of theirs, were unaware of the ‘extra’ ingredient of the cake.
Three people had to be rushed to the A&E, including one of the owners who is said to have been laughing and crying non-stop for a long time afterwards.
As for the rest of the pensioners, one reportedly went to plough his fields after eating the cake, and told his family and friends that ‘clouds were falling down on him all afternoon’.
Another went to feed his pigs and was found much later clinging to a fig tree and claiming he was surrounded by hundreds of sheep.
This is not the first time the group of pensioners has added cannabis to food for their own consumption, Guardia Civil said.
