A young couple’s romantic weekend getaway to a cabin in South West Iceland was ruined last week after they consumed some hash ice cream they made from a recipe they found online, reports MBL.

Unfortunately, though perhaps predictably, the ice cream gave them a seriously bad trip.

“Once the cou­ple had eaten the ice cream the boyfriend began suffering massive hallucinations, took off all his clothes and started running around outside,” the West Iceland Police wrote on their Facebook Page. “The girl­friend meanwhile, felt ex­tremely nau­seous and began fearing for their men­tal health. She called for po­lice and med­ical as­sis­tance.”

Upon arrival the police seized the remainder of the hash ice cream and sent it in for analysis. There it was determined that the ice cream was neither especially good, nor fit for human consumption.

Following a medical evaluation the young cou­ple – who are fine – were sent back to their par­ents as po­lice did not be­lieve that they should re­main in the cabin fol­low­ing the in­cident.
