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.

Just in time for the holidays, there's now an over-the-counter cure to the morning after the night before.

BLOWFISH PIC

It's called Blowfish, and one dose contains 1,000 mg of aspirin, 120 mg of caffeine, 816 mg of sodium, and 25.2 mg of phenylalanine (a reputed painkiller and antidepressant). The makers, Rally Labs, say it makes hangover symptoms start to go away as quickly as 15-20 minutes, and are so confident that they're offering a money-back guarantee. So awful hangovers will now be as extinct as dinosaurs and 8-tracks, right?

Well, not exactly. See, although everything in Blowfish is FDA-approved, whether it really works was never actually tested by the FDA, so it's not technically FDA-approved, and could end up just being a different kind of caffeine pill. What's more, even if Blowfish is as effective as it claims to be, taking a pill the next day won't make passing out and/or making a mess any easier.

Regardless, Blowfish is currently on sale in NYC, but won't go nationwide until next year, so non-New Yorkers will have to stick to their aspirin and coffee/scrambled eggs and tabasco/hair of the dog hangover cures.
