NANCY, France, July 25, 2006 (AFP) - Police in France said on Tuesday they had thwarted an attempt by a group of marijuana smokers to roll the world's longest joint by seizing a work-in-progress measuring 80 centimetres (32 inches) in length.

"At some point, these young people had wanted to craft a joint of 1.12 metres to beat the world record in the discipline and get it officially registered," said a police officer in eastern France.

"We don't know who had the idea. Sometimes ideas are created in an astonishing way," he said.

During an investigation targeting a group of four smokers in the eastern Vosges area of France, police discovered the giant joint containing 70 grams of marijuana resin. It had not been finished because of a lack of tobacco.

One of the smokers of adult age is to appear before a court charged with drug use on October 19. Two minors will appear before a juvenile court on October 6.
