Another Friday thread

You'll like this.

"An Estonian town has taken a cannabis leaf as the symbol in its new flag following an online poll.

Kanepi, a south-eastern town and region, derives its name from the Estonian word for marijuana, "kanep".

Residents traditionally grew marijuana and hemp to turn into goods such as cloth, oil, and rope.

However January's poll has generated controversy because the area has a population of fewer than 5,000 but there were 15,000 votes.

Some 12,000 of the votes cast were for the cannabis symbol.

The chairman of the town council, Kaido Koiv, said the decision was the result of a "very democratic" process, Reuters reported."

The council vote was a little bit closer - 9 for and 8 against.
