A man dressed as an elf offered to wrap Christmas presents for charity in Watford Market while allegedly high on an assortment of drugs, including two Class A substances.

Sam Briggs, who describes himself as "a comedy article writer and professional fat man" uploaded a video of the experience, entitled "Drugs at Work" to YouTube last week.

The video has since become an internet hit and attracted more than 320,000 views.

Mr Briggs has also come under criticism from people on the social networking site Twitter, who have accused him of glamorising drugs.

The borough council, which runs Watford Market and granted Mr Briggs a stall permit, has described the stunt as "appalling".

The opening credits of the video describe how over a period of two days, Mr Briggs ran a gift-wrapping stall to raise money for charity in the market.

It goes on: "Over that period he took acid, cocaine, and ketamine. The people who allowed us to run the stall had no idea about the drugs. All money raised was genuinely for charity.

"Don’t try this yourself."

During the nine minute film, Mr Briggs can be seen wishing people a merry Christmas, as well as laughing, dancing and offering to show off "his skills" while supposedly under the influence of cocaine, the horse tranquiliser ketamine and later LSD.

After allegedly taking ketamine, Mr Briggs appears quite impaired. He asks "what have I got myself into" before repeating "Come on Briggs, hold it down."

Later in the video he claims to be "feeling a little bit wobbly" before asking "what circumstances have lead me to this point in my life?".

It goes on to explain that Mr Briggs had an "elf helper on standby" in case anyone under the age of 18 came to the stall, and the video is restricted online for adult viewing only.

However, other viewers have criticised the video on Twitter, claiming it "glamorised drug-taking to a quarter of a million people", by making the experience look attractive and exciting.

Mr Briggs replied: "I reckon its fairly common knowledge that drugs are pretty fun and exciting. They're all the rage."

Lisa Morgan, from Watford Borough Council, said: "Sam Briggs was granted permission to wrap presents at Watford Market over the Christmas period to raise money for charity. The request was approved in good faith by Watford Borough Council and Intu after receiving the relevant documents required.

"Naturally we are appalled and do not condone the actions of this person and we will be conducting a full investigation into this matter."

Watford Observer:

A similar video was uploaded in January 2013, which saw Mr Briggs take cannabis, ecstasy and magic mushrooms before standing outside Watford Library offering "safety tips".

He claims to be working for "Watford Borough" and tells people there have been a number of "slippages" in the area and to "stay alert".

A disclaimer in the video’s description states he is not affiliated with Watford Borough Council.

Hannah Georgiou, from Hertfordshire Constabulary, said: "Police are aware of the video on You Tube and have assessed its content.

“Whilst the video contains no physical evidence of drug taking to suggest a criminal offence has been committed, officers will be seeking to identify and speak to the individual captured on camera to give advice regarding the appropriateness of his videos and supportive commentary.”

The Watford Observer contacted Mr Briggs but he was unavailable for comment.

I think that is sour grapes that someone completely "aff his t1ts" could talk more sense than anyone at the town hall. A smear campaign by Dotty. I reckon this guy should double his consumption and stand as a candidate as mayor ha ha ha.

So Watford Council are "appalled" and Plod are concerned over a bit of a laugh in which there's no evidence of drug taking. Get over yourselves. How many jolly, plump, bearded gentlemen in red suits have entertained young children over the Yuletide season whilst reeking of and under the influence of the most damaging (though legal) stimulant-alcohol.
Perspective required here.

In an ideal world, I'd rather they targeted all crime. IF this man has bought K and coke and acid, I can pretty much promise you that violent crime was involved somewhere along the chain. Class A drugs and violent crime go hand in hand. The suppliers are ruthless gangsters, and the users are often thieves at best. The cause and effect argument could be used that by cutting the drugs, you cut the crimes.

The link worked for and I read the debate with interest, but I couldn't log in to comment. I'd have loved to cross swords with that so-called city banker who claims to get high every day before work; might explain a lot about the state of the city in recent years! But you and others seem to be doing a pretty good job yourselves.
I would say, you show me a city banker who openly declares his earnings on a local newspaper website, and I'll show you a liar. They just aren't that stupid. To comment, you have to register, and to register makes you would be very, very traceable. Even with a Hotmail address and a roving IP address; but who would go to that trouble just to boast they earn £100K and take drugs to complete strangers on the internet?
There is much talk of how people are being monitored at the moment. City bankers would be pretty high up on the monitored list. If one sets up a so called 'untraceable' internet persona, the authorities would take a great deal of interest. They would be unlikely to believe it was solely for the purpose of bragging to the local paper, and any real high-flier would know that.
I therefore conclude he is a liar. But then, most drug users are.

I was asking LSC to join me on another story on another newspaper....... Oh... OK thank you....
It's a cannabis story, from what I have seen LSC is good at putting the Anti pot view across which supports my view, so I asked him to join in,.
You are welcome to join in as everyone else please don't take it as me snubbing you .
The link worked for and I read the debate with interest, but I couldn't log in to comment. I'd have loved to cross swords with that so-called city banker who claims to get high every day before work; might explain a lot about the state of the city in recent years! But you and others seem to be doing a pretty good job yourselves.
I would say, you show me a city banker who openly declares his earnings on a local newspaper website, and I'll show you a liar. They just aren't that stupid. To comment, you have to register, and to register makes you would be very, very traceable. Even with a Hotmail address and a roving IP address; but who would go to that trouble just to boast they earn £100K and take drugs to complete strangers on the internet?
There is much talk of how people are being monitored at the moment. City bankers would be pretty high up on the monitored list. If one sets up a so called 'untraceable' internet persona, the authorities would take a great deal of interest. They would be unlikely to believe it was solely for the purpose of bragging to the local paper, and any real high-flier would know that.

Sure, send me the links, but I'm not a national campaigner or anything. I don't know why my log in won't work there.
As for the comment by Mike Ribble on the other thread, I love it. I don't mind the odd insult if people are good at it.

I am finding good cannabis/drug stories are harder to come by recently that’s why I check on as many sites as I can log onto, I see a lot of sites dominated by the pro-pot lobby (CLEAR and CVF420 etc) hoping to let as many like minded anti pot people aware of them
