Two Canadian police officers are being investigated after it was found they allegedly ate cannabis edibles while on duty.

CTV News Toronto reports the officers ingested edibles Sunday while on duty, and subsequently began to hallucinate. When one of the officers reportedly exited the vehicle, the other officer called for help via radio to search the area.

When a female officer responded, she slipped on ice and hit her head as she tried to help the missing officer, who they found to be up a tree. She was taken to the hospital and treated for a concussion.

Sources told CTV News that investigators are looking into whether the edibles were stolen during a raid on a marijuana dispensary.

The officers were identified as Const. Vito Dominelli and Const. Jamie Young. They were both suspended with pay pending.
