40 people roll a 100-foot-long joint in Massachusetts

Updated December 17, 2017 - 11:16 am

WORCESTER, Mass. — Massachusetts marijuana aficionados have rolled a 100-foot-long joint.

The effort was led by Beantown Greentown, a Boston-based cannabis club and advocacy group, during an exhibition of pro-marijuana vendors and supporters at the DCU Center in Worcester on Saturday.

They perfected a secret rolling technique using 1,000 grams of their own pot trimmings.

The Telegram & Gazette reports that people crowded around to take selfies when the final product was displayed Saturday.

The newspaper says 55-year-old Denise Fournier, of Gardner, Massachusetts, asked the question on everybody’s mind: “When are you going to light it up?”

Thousands of people attended the exhibition.

Massachusetts last year voted to legalize the possession and consumption of marijuana. A Cannabis Control Commission is writing regulations to govern the sale of cannabis, expected to being July 1.
