I've seen plenty of movies used a distraction like that, although usually it was cash and not weed.

Like good pot? That's a lot of pot. I might join in.

Better than someone throwing a garbage bag full of kettle.

Oh no, pot

Of course it was on 8th avenue

I can see how dealers might be in a panic. If they've got inventory, the value is going to drop as more pot shops start opening up.

Putting it into trash bags and losing it on the sidewalk isn't a good strategy, though.

They held a gun on him and he said FARK YOU! Good for him.

If you're ever thrown off a building in NYC, just go limp. People might think you're a garbage bag full of weed and try to catch you because hey, free weed.

When I was in college, I had one girlfriend who had bad menstrual cramps. I made her catnip and chamomile tea which eased the pain. One day I accidentally left the baggie in one of the University Center bathrooms. The next week, there was a listing on the campus newspaper crime rundowns that said a suspected illicit substance was found where I left it. My girlfriend and I had a laugh.

Tossing a garbage bag full of pot can lead to a Hefty fine.
 
2021-06-16 7:43:49 PM  
I'm in NorCal, we got so much pot here I would have just walked over it and went on my way.  In college, yeah different story. But now, meh.

Akeem and Semmi still amazed at a country so free one can discard rubbish on the street.

absolutely soaking wet!
It's raining weed! Hallelujah!
It's raining weed! Every specimen!

Sativa or indica? I'm not going to waste my time going after indica weed.
 
2021-06-16 8:43:13 PM  
I wish New York would hurry up and legalize it, because everyone knows that once you do, illegal weed deals such as this one that go south when someone pulls a gun become a thing of the past.

You missed again. Now who's the dummy?

Was it like whole plants with stalks and everything? Or, was it a garbage bag (13 galon? The standard I think of) full of harvested and ripe buds?

Unless stuff was dehydrated, or bagged separately, even a half hour of any moist leafy green in a garbage bag will start to turn in a bad way in June North American heat.

*chomps on sherkock pipe with arms crossed* case dismissed for multiple idiocies...

Note: pipes always contain properly dried or dehydrated material....resins differ but are always a biatch, and more so the more moisture involved. *takes another condescending puff* yes, ahmmm, yes.

/lol sorry for my ridiculousness - I just immediately pictured an old detictive comic strip character after I'd typed my furst few sentences and couldn't resist adding it in.

If nobody ever pulled a gun over any other legal commodity, you might have a point.

The black market for weed is still very much alive in states that have legal weed. No tax, No rent, No electric bill, No employees, No brainer!
