As they say.. LOL
A Toronto police officer who ate a cannabis-laced chocolate bar seized during a raid was described as a “complete idiot” by a judge.
Vittorio Dominelli pleaded guilty to attempting to obstruct justice in connection with the incident at an illegal marijuana dispensary.
Justice Mary Misener, who presided over the case, said: “From the point of view of public interest, the impact is profound,” she said. “The conduct here you cannot describe as anything other than stupid … He was just a complete idiot.”

Two Toronto officers allegedly consumed cannabis-infused chocolate that had been seized as evidence hours earlier during a dispensary raid — only to have to call for backup and be taken to hospital, according to newly released police documents.
Just weeks after Const. Vittorio Dominelli and Const. Jamie Young were criminally charged in connection to the January incident, the officers appeared at the Toronto police disciplinary tribunal Tuesday, facing professional misconduct charges under Ontario’s Police Services Act.
The documents filed at the hearing detail allegations of a bizarre and potentially dangerous night that began with the alleged theft of cannabis-infused chocolate and ended with a 911 call, paramedics rushing to the scene and three officers being sent to hospital.
The hearing documents also reveal that, as a result of the officers’ alleged actions, criminal charges were withdrawn against seven people who were arrested during the raid on a west-end dispensary earlier that same night, where the officers allegedly obtained the cannabis-infused chocolate.
