Arrests were made at a pro-marijuana demonstration late Saturday night in Jerusalem's Wohl Rose Park, near the Knesset and Supreme Court.

Over a thousand protestors demonstrated in favor of marijuana legalization in Israel and consumed the drug as part of the protest, dubbed "The Big Bong Night" by the organizers. 

Police blocked off roadways and entrances to the park for the remainder of the night.
