A bag of cannabis was left next to the swings on a children’s playground in Leeds.
A resident described his disgust at finding the Class B substance in the playground at Rodley Park in West Leeds on Tuesday.
The man, who did not want to be named, said he ended up flushing the drugs down the loo.
He said: “I was just cutting across the park on the outside of the play area.
“I found it on the grass directly behind the swings on Tuesday morning. I thought about giving it to the police but thought it easier to flush it down the toilet.”
Possession of cannabis or any Class B drug is an offence punishable by up to five years in prison.
