Scores of small packets containing what is suspected to be cannabis was dropped over the city's iconic Rabin Square, leaving many confused.

A drone dropped over 100 small packets of marijuana over Tel Aviv's Rabin Square on Thursday afternoon, many of which were snatched up by pedestrians.

The public was ecstatic when bags of green cannabis fell from the sky into Tel Aviv, courtesy of the "green drone" Telegram group - which pushes for the legalization of the psychotropic drug in Israel.

The drone operators miscalculated the wind and some of the baggies landed in a children's playground but were confiscated quickly, according to a statement released by the police.

Before it rained cannabis in Tel Aviv, the group published a message on Telegram, teasing at the coming of the green rain.

Free cannabis delivered by drone. Enjoy my beloved brothers, this is your pilot brother, making sure we all get some free love'. An announcement of the "Cannabis Rain Project" drops on the Telegram channel said that 1 kilogram (2.2 pounds) of cannabis, divided into 2 gram bags, will be dropped each week in a different part of the country, Israel's Channel 12 News reported.

Two suspects in their 30s were arrested by police for allegedly operating the drone and dropping the bud.

"The distribution of a suspected narcotic substance is considered as trafficking a risky drug in all respects and the arrested suspects will be investigated accordingly", a police spokesperson said.

The arrested suspects are to be interrogated and then dealt with accordingly.

Adult-use recreational cannabis is illegal in Israel, but partially decriminalized, while medical cannabis has been permitted for use since the early 1990s.
