Japan Gives Travellers Free Cannabis

sniffer-dog.jpgLET no man say Japan is an inhospitable nation. There goes one passenger strolling through Narita airport, 142g of complimentary cannabis tucked securely away in his bags.

A customs officer has selected the bag at random, taking care to hide the package so well that sniffer dogs on a training exercise fail to detect it.

“This case was extremely regrettable. I would like to deeply apologise,” says Narita International Airport’s customs head Manpei Tanaka.

“I knew that using passengers’ bags is prohibited, but I did it because I wanted to improve the sniffer dog’s ability,” the officer is quoted as saying. “The dogs have always been able to find it before… I became overconfident that it would work.”

Next time, we advise the officer to hid the package in the bags of someone who look suspicious, like a young Robin Day, a swarthy man with a beard or a pasty veiny man with the complexion of ripe stilton.

Anorak believes all inbound arrivals to the UK should be asked not if they have packed their bags but if they have ever been a celebrity?

An answer to the affirmative will be met with a stringent body and baggage search, which produces a washing powder bottle full of “white powders”, a vial of sunset orange skin dye and a Robert Kilroy Silk video compilation.

The celebs will then be offered the chance to exchange the contraband for a mystery package and a one-way trip to Japan, where their sort are welcome….
