Who throws away their marijuana?



I don’t live in an apartment community but I do get a chance to work there on a regular basis. Being among the many diverse families, I get to see things that I find a little unusual. Today I was cleaning up after completing a project and went to the dumpster to dump a bag of trash. As I approached the dumpster enclosure I could smell fresh marijuana. It wasn’t until I opened the garbage dumpster that I saw a very large amount of the green herb piled inside the container.

What did I do? Nothing! I wasn’t going to take it, nor use it. Apparently, even the owner didn’t want it. Lol So, I left it there and said nothing, it got picked up about an hour later and hauled away. As far as the smell, it was better than the fresh trash smell.

I get to see a lot of things in apartment communities.

Hi, Tom...that is a mystery. I wonder why someone did that? From the picture it really looks more like grass clippings...I mean the lawn grass kind of grass. LOL. I'm really getting up on my pot lingo since Colorado legalized it.

Tom- I do have to scratch my head and wonder who would do that.  You must see some very interesting things doing what you do.

Hi Tom, I wonder if this was from a trash out? Years ago one of our tenants had a little operation going on in one of our houses. Oh the joys of rental property!

Hi Tom - It looks like he kept all the good stuff - that's just the stems. Not that I know anything about that...

Yeah, I would have called the police, but then, I am married to one.

The growing didn't think it up to his high standards . . . . Right . . . .

If would be interesting hear the story on how the pot got into the dumpster.

Good luck and success.

I do have some theories about this but I'm not real concerned. It wouldn't surprise me that there was a unit growing it, I know of a few. The laws are a little sketchy about who can grow in California, and I'm not the police. It does look like it was the weaker of the batch and probably didn't have much value. But the smell.... no hiding that!

GOOD MORNING TOM!  Well, I am not expert but it looks like the buds did not make the trash but no surprise the trash trimmings quickly disappeared!  I will agree though - it is a better smell than trash!

Why not just throw it on the lawn if you're going to be so conspicuous about it?  I wonder what you'll find next?!

Interesting, my ignorance of this would have had me thinking it was just something else, never suspecting the truth.
