(Newser) – No, we didn't write that headline while stoned. California police actually did confiscate a mammoth joint during a 4/20 pot rally on Saturday, reports the Los Angeles Times. As the paper notes, hundreds of UC Santa Cruz students gather each year for the event, and each year campus police confiscate things like bongs and dime bags. But Gennady Tsarinsky took things to a whole new level: what police say was a four-foot-long, two-pound joint.

The 25-year-old was arrested and charged with possessing more than an ounce of pot—which happens to be California's limit for medical marijuana users. A video of the bust posted by LiveLeak shows a cop carrying the joint (which is bigger than a loaf of French bread) and a seemingly incredulous Tsarinsky: "Dude, you're a liar. You're a liar," he's recorded as saying. "I can't wait to see you in court. I can show how you’re harassing me."

Gennady Tsarinsky may have slightly exceeded the one-ounce limit on medical marijuana Saturday when he brought a four-foot joint to a pot rally.
