It was just lying on a blanket soaking up some summer rays in a park, but it wasn't an animal or a person, it was marijuana.

Victoria police say they received a complaint on Tuesday morning about a man sitting near a children's park with a blanket covered in marijuana out to dry.

When police arrived, they found a 29-year-old man and a 24-year-old man sitting beside the pot-covered blanket.

The 29-year-old tried to argue that marijuana possession was legal, which it isn't, and the items were seized by police.

Both men were arrested for possessing a controlled substance.

Victoria police used the arrests as an opportunity to remind people that "no matter what your views are on marijuana legalization, drying your bud in the open sun at a kids park is likely a bad idea."
