If it was a 787 it could have been burning resin.

If it were an An24 it would have been coke...

On any flight of mine smoke of an unknown origin is Land ASAP.

A whole article based on the aircraft being full of the smell of CANNABIS and there's no mention of smoke?

Dave, you don't imagine it was the smell of raw unsmoked CANNABIS they were talking about do you? How many people would recognise that? And if you did smell that why on earth would you rtb? There's no reason whatsoever.

I'm glad I never had to sit in the back of a smelly plane

In a smoky front maybe, when smoking wasn't taboo.
