Worst Drug Dealer Ever Trades Weed for Bags of Garbage

In what is perhaps the best town clean-up effort of all time, a medical marijuana dispensary in Gardiner, Maine offered cannabis to anyone who went out and filled up a trash bag with litter and debris from around town. The weed was free but residents had to supply their own Cool Ranch Doritos and Entenmann’s cakes.

The program was run by Dennis Meehan, the proprietor of Summit Medical Marijuana, who based the initiative off of a similar successful initiative in Colorado. For every bag of trash that a participant filled, Meehan gave them a gram of marijuana. As recreational marijuana has been legal in Maine since January, people were free to take their weed and leave, and didn’t have to make small talk and smoke with him to prove that they’re not a narc.

While weed is legal in Maine, the state isn’t allowing anyone to actually sell it until next year. All sorts of systems and taxes and regulations apparently need to be put in place to regulate a substance that’s killed fewer people than spinach, and we’ve seen how difficult it can be. It is, however, currently legal to give marijuana away for free and to possess and smoke it, which allowed Meehan to run his program.

Meehan himself sounds a bit like your college roommate, when he’s up at three a.m. getting high and listening to Dave Matthews, saying to WCSH News:

The research. There’s a whole world of science out there. If you started the research today, 10 years from now you’d still be doing the research… When you see this plant have an incredibly life changing impact on somebody that has given up on life, or somebody that has been given up on by modern medicine – and you can bring them back to life and give them a quality of life. It doesn’t just affect that patient, it affects every single person in the family.

Meehan isn’t wrong, he just sounds like he took a dip into his own stash before being interviewed. Cannabis has been shown to have a number of benefits for the sick and the healthy, it costs next to nothing to produce and it doesn’t have any negative side effects. Well, it makes you think Phish is good and that a full bag of Oreos would be an awesome dinner, but those are pretty minor compared to shitting out your eyeballs on Prelexitor or whatever.
