Via The LADbible:

Indonesian police got an entire neighbourhood high (accidentally) after burning a 3.3-ton pile of cannabis just outside their office.

Residents around West Jakarta were all intoxicated after the fumes created a giant cloud of smoke which then dispersed around the local area.

Loads of people then reported to the police with headaches and feeling dizzy, not realising they were in fact high as a kite.

Specifically, secondary schools across Northern Ireland are being given copies of MinecraftEdu, a version of the game designed to be educational.  This initiative is expected to bring Minecraft to 50,000 kids, and will be used to teach everything from art to history and computer coding:

Last week we worked with Artichoke and The Space to recreate, in Minecraft, a version of Burning Man artist David Best’s ‘Temple’ in Minecraft.

The real world Temple was a 70ft structure in the city that was ceremonially burnt. When we took it into the schools we were able to give young people a chance to create their own versions of the Temple, working alongside the artist. We’ve seen Minecraft being used to teach everything from coding to physics but I think that there’s a real opportunity to develop more of these kind of creative projects too.
