So a local grocery store clerk told me this story.
Many years ago, the store used to offer recycling. Folks would come up, drop off their bags of cans or what have you into an area that couldn’t be accessed by the public. One day, a scruffy looking fellow shuffled into the store awkwardly. “Excuse me,” he said our clerk, “but…uh…I accidentally threw the wrong bag in the recycling. I threw in my weed.”
The clerk and another worker went outside and rescued, from among several similar looking trash bags, a contractor sized container of pot.
The moral of this story is “It’s rash to stash your green cash in the trash.”
