People throw a ton of product out on their way to the airport in Denver. Can't take it with them so they chuck it
This was the comment I was looking for. I used to work security at DIA (Denver international airport) and it got to the point where me and my roommates didn’t even have to buy weed for over a year because of all the stuff people would throw away or leave on the ground.
It's crazy what people will leave behind. A friend found a box on the side of the road. When he opened it there was a couple hundred dollars worth of swag someone chucked. Rental car companies get all sorts of shit left too. People (especially executives) leave skies, boards, cameras, fishing poles, and all other stuff they used once and never again. Probably gonna be my next career lol.
Is this different from Shwag back in the 90s and early 2000s which meant dirt weed?
Whoa. Is that true?
According to Michael Scott
You're confusing SWAG and Schwag.
Swag used to be a term for expensive stuff.
Schwag was a 70s term for dirt weed that has passed down from generation to generation.
To me, and everyone I know, swag is usually free branded items from sales reps
To quote Michael Scott, “Stuff. We. All. Get.”
Yeah my dad was a radio show host and swag was never something I’d describe as expensive
Swag no adays is usually referred to as a bunch of free cool stuff given out as promos or a bunch of cool stuff in general. I believe stemming from the bags full of expensive things that people get for free at award shows such as the Oscars being called “swag bags.”
I also work at the DIA lol, people come in high all the time but never give me any :( (Detroit Institute of Art)
Flying out of Vancouver a couple years ago I had about 1/2oz leftover so I just gave it to this homeless guy opening the door for people at the 7/11.
what if this is why you get into heaven lmao
Orlando here, yeah I've just been handed free weed near the airport because tourists are about to hop a flight and they overestimated their weekend.
I mean do you want a bunch of quitters running around like that in your state?
Meanwhile I stuff all the gummies down my throat as I'm waiting in the security line.
I did this leaving the dominican republic. way too much. I could "feel" the speed of the plane the entire time, as in I could clearly perceive I was going 500+ mph. scaryyyy
I did this with mushrooms at LAX. Do NOT recommend.
You can get away with more than you'd think. I know people that have been flying out of SFO for years with a whole ass pound of weed in the suitcase. You can definitely carry on some edibles, joints, vapes etc without anybody knowing or caring.
Its easier to travel a cart and pen battery. Not that i would know.
Yea tell that to griner
Well, traveling with any drugs internationally is dumb on its own, but to *Russia?* Either she made a huge mistake by... I don't know how, or she's not the brightest.
I love vaping. I'm not about to take through security and across state borders. I'll refrain or buy where I'm going.
Well you’re missing out. They don’t even check it I just put it with my liquids. Have done it at least 20 times and even into states like Texas. Shits easy
Just don't try it in Russia.
Exactly. Don’t try it out in any country with harsh laws. But flying between states tsa couldn’t be paid to give a fuck at this point.
Back in the early 90's, the class clown went to all the classrooms and emptied the pencil sharpeners and then rolled the shavings into joints and dropped them
All over school.
There was a kid at my school that got suspended for rolling a joint with pencil shavings and a gum wrapper
I almost got CPS called on my parents in elementary school ('91 or '92) because a teacher saw me pretend to inject my arm with a mechanical pencil. She was going on that i had to have witnessed it somewhere to know about something like that. Telling them my dad let's me watch R rated movies with him all the time didn't really help.
Edit to add for clarity: I was specifically pretending to inject it into the crook of my elbow, while simultaneously making faces like I was dying at another student.
Also, this is in a tiny rural town with extremely over zealous school staff. This teacher was the mildest example.
>in elementary school ('91 or '92) because a teacher saw me pretend to inject my arm with a mechanical pencil.
I feel like that's something every kid did at one point.
Checking in, can also confirm. My mechanical pencils and certain pens also served as multi-stage rockets sometimes. Woo ADHD!
I also ruined the 5th grade checkbook balancing game by selling hand drawn "credit cards" to the other kids (we earned class money to buy stuff and had massive checkbook balance books the teacher made). Instead of people learning valuable lessons in balancing their checkbooks and finances, they'd buy something and the teacher would do the math and write their current balance with a vis-a-vis marker on the back of their card (I "laminated" them with scotch tape).
in grade 9 we took typing
I had classical piano lessons so my fingers were fast and I caught on to typing quickly
I would speed through the typing assignments while peers were hunting and pecking
so I started typing Dear Penthouse Forum letters (Name Withheld By Request) and passed them around for snacks
Playing the piano? And I suppose you'd rather be at home practicing. Marching up and down the square not good enough for you eh?
My graphite addiction started from shooting “lead” in my arm way back in elementary school.
i'd do it right now if I had one. It's the most enjoyable aspect of using a pencil like that.
It’s the lighter and spoon that gave it away.
That’s probably why my teacher looked at me weird when I answered the question “what’s an easy way to remember the compass?” And I answered “Never Ever Smoke Weed”, I was like 6 or 7.
Never Eat Shredded Wheat
Notwithstanding Etymological Syllabus Wurlitzer has been my go to.
This is one of the funniest things I’ve heard in a long time
D.A.R.E. to know your cardinal directions.
I'm more of a "never eat soggy wheaties" kind of guy.
Similar to my Never Eat Shredded Wheat
It’s better because it rhymes
Y'all weird. Never eat soggy waffles. Duhhh
This is the only answer.
“Never eat soggy wieners” gang ftw
Gonna use this from now on, thanks for sharing.
We all did that, it's the only reason to own a mechanical pencil how else you going to practice shooting heroin? SMH.
>She was going on that i had to have witnessed it somewhere to know about something like that.
Like a doctor's office?
I wonder why she went straight to you seeing illicit drugs being injected, and not like any other type of injection you likely see as a kid.
Maybe because she witnessed it somewhere.
When I was 8 I rolled a bunch of orange leaves in TP and got caught. I had to make anti-smoking posters for every room in the school as punishment and take my parents to see every single one…
I went to a smaller school. I remember kids getting caught smoking a joint and not even getting suspended.
I 3000% can see this happening at my school
That's so fucking creatively evil hahahahahaha
Definitely something I would have done at my school in the early 90s...
My throat hurts just reading that.
My mates and I would sometimes play a prank on each other that involved chipping off the stuff on match heads. Once you had a little pile you would roll a joint and put it about halfway down. Then you'd light it, pass it round and wait for the festivities to commence.
Teenagers are so stupid.
Adam Sandler, is that you?
why do you have to bring it up so often??
i was a kid for God's sake.
In the early 2000s, the class clown got drafted by the Cardinals and smoked weed during PE and made the underclassmen smoke his joint.
Times change old man.
My brothers best friend smoked a joint during a high school golf tournament and disqualified his team. He's now a partner in an accounting firm.
I once walked around with a bag of basil rolled up and it got taken away pretty quick
Oh those are mine. Please return promptly, unsmoked and unbothered
How do we tell if the joints are bothered or not?
Someone's day got a whole lot better...there I fixed it 4 ya

yada yada yada, can we talk about Rampart?
These will put the fun in funtanyl
I laughed but Fenny is killing people all over. Just a little is killing people left and right. That’s why I get my shit at the fancy store
I led a normal life for the 3 years I was on fentanyl for my chronic pain.
Then, the stupid CDC made a recommendation based on BS that doesn't take into account actual reality into account. By their metric, should be dead by now after 20 years of opiate use. I've cleaned myself off of opiates multiple times in the past. It's just 3 days of hell for me. The last time was in 2020, when I got pissed at the pain specialist being unwilling to read through my 15 years of medical records to actually prescribe me what I had been on for years. I hated the fact that the VA has such horrible records that transferring documents out of their systems turns into an enormous disjointed mess.
Luckily Colorado was a decent place to have all this happen to me. But it's expensive to visit the dispensary weekly because the great weather is horrible for spinal damage and nerve pain.
I almost wish it was as easy to find hard drugs as the news always reports. When my money runs low, it would be nice to have something to fall back on before I am forced to give up.
And you just painted a perfect picture of how the pharmaceutical industry and the war on drugs have created a perfect storm of heroin addiction (basically now fent addiction) and skyrocketing overdose/death rates among drug users.
>Luckily Colorado was a decent place to have all this happen to me. But it's expensive to visit the dispensary weekly because the great weather is horrible for spinal damage and nerve pain.
Can you elaborate on the weather -> spinal damage connection? My wife just went through 6 months of back hell and the nerve issues are pretty persistent.
Storms change the barometric pressure too quickly to acclimate ( Is how I assume it to work). So extra swelling/inflammation triggers a stronger pain response on nerves that already are continuously sending pain messages.
It has been a very wet Summer here in the Springs. Almost every evening the storms have come. Sometimes heat works, but usually for me, that only gets rid of the muscle pain and I still have to work on ignoring the nerve pain.
Unlike muscle pain, most medications don't work on the nerves directly. Opiates just get your brain foggy enough that it is easier to ignore the pain.
Yeah, all of that tracks with what my wife went through. The opiates didn't do a thing for her nerve pain, but they helped her not care as much, which was kind of a blessing in itself at times.
That's really interesting about the storms. I'll have to ask her about it. Thanks!
One of the lessons I learned when it comes to nerve pain is to look for medications that work "off label", in some cases based on the medications side effects.
For example, I have this pain in my lower abdomen that the VA doctors just can't explain as there is nothing in the area that should be causing pain yet they could even see the muscles throbbing. Eventually they decided that it must be nerve related.
So after dealing with it for a few months, I managed to hurt my back one day and I took some Cyclobenzaprine for it. Interestingly enough, this caused the pain in my abdomen to subside.
Besides being a sedative/muscle relaxer, at lower doses cyclobenzaprine a side effect is that it also helps to block nerve impulses from reaching the brain.
Been on it for years now and as long as I take it every night I don't get that abdomen pain. If I miss a dose or two the pain comes back.
"Off label" use of meds can be interesting.
I have a lot of conditions but a few of the meds I am on now are taken "off label" because over time I have burned through the regular meds and we are using "side effects" of meds in some cases to actually treat my conditions.
This is also why old people can "feel a storm's coming in their bones." Pressure changes are felt in joints like knees and elbows with pockets of air before the storm is visible.
> I hated the fact that the VA has such horrible records that transferring documents out of their systems turns into an enormous disjointed mess.
This is why I periodically get my records from the VA and go over what I get.
I have copies of all my records for the past 15 years from the VA so I know that I have a correct copy of everything "just in case" and its going to come in handy when I apply for SSDI soon (non-service related).
Good for you! If you’ve had imaging (X-ray, ct scan, mri, etc) be sure to get copies of the images, not just the reports, on a disc. It’s like pulling teeth with my bare hands to get records from the VA or military hospitals.
Definitely got copies of the actual images.
I have found it easy to get records from the VA. Just go in and file the paperwork, then wait for them to come in the mail.
That's a bonus
I mean, you can always break them down and smoke it in a bong if you're worried about that?
See your a problem solver! Love the optimism!!
That's highly unlikely imho
Do you know how much that crap costs? In this economy with an energy crisis and soaring gas prices?
There are 21 phat joints in that container. Who could afford to make 21 big joints, lace them with crack and go around dropping joints at random places just for shits and giggles?
Would a tweaker do this? Hell no
If you're so super paranoid then crack open a couple and inspect the contents, it shouldn't be so hard to see if it's tampered with. If it were me I'd say my thanks and put them in my pocket
A tweaker would absolutely sit there high on crack and roll a bunch of laced joints only to lose them.
Also you're taking this way too seriously
A bunch of bud would be much more preferable.
What fucking tweaker is going to roll the crack in a joint, and not just smoke it straight?
Some dumb high school kids sure, but a tweaker? What? What fucking tweaker has a pre-roll machine and is going to waste THAT much money on inefficiently burning multiple grams of crack? There's over a dozen fucking joints in there dude.
Thank you haha. I didn't wanna have to say it.
I don't think a tweaker is buying RAW tubes and makes a bunch of pre-rollers. Because they're tubes it means no ones tongue was on these, too. And if there's a little crack in there, just ride it out. I bet a little crack is a blast, as weird as that sounds.
Didn’t know you were chill like that
Edit: Quincy isn’t chill like that, Quincy probably wouldn’t take a blast. Quincy is a poser, don’t be like Quincy.
I've done that, many years ago. Amazing.
Can confirm although blunts are preferred the oil will run up the paper too much
Fuck it. I’m gonna score some crack.
That's the best part
Trusting drugs from an unknown source sounds like great way to make day a whole lot worse..
Take a joint, leave a joint!
I can actually see this being a thing, maybe one day.
You would need a hell of a lot of trust in your community
Couldn't do it, ever.
Someone will always ruin it.
One time I found a huge bud on the ground, but it wasn’t in any baggy or anything it was just laying on the pavement. It was probably like a gram or two and I contemplated picking it up but then I got worried someone left it as like a social experiment 😂 or that something happened to it which is why it got ditched.
It might've just been tossed if the police pulled up behind someone. I had a friend find a tossed 1/8 on the side of the road one day.
Smoking the reefer!
I found a cigarette pack cellophane nearly full of roaches in a Dillard's dressing room. I smoked em like I burned em!!! But, I was like 14.
That’s some paranoia I can relate to lol
So how good were they?
Too nervous to take a sample lol call me paranoid but I don’t want to smoke laced weed
I will say laced weed is over blown as hell, but smoking strange found weed with that on your mind will absolutely convince you your high isn't normal lol
Edit: i should mention where I'm at it's legal on the state level, so ymmv
Facts. Not worth the paranoia and not being able to enjoy the high.
Who ARE you people? If you find free ground weed you legally have to smoke it.
Lol yeah a gift from the heavens. It would be rude not to smoke it.
Who the fuck "laces" a ton of pre rolls? And lace it with what, exactly? You think people walk around with 50 pre rolled PCP joints?
Like what decade are we in lol
I do. I've got a huge jar of pcp joints right here... Wait shit where is it
Well, if you've got a gallon of PCP...
Wow! A...a gallon. That's illegal, right?
Yeah, it's a felony
You know, I ran into Bill the other day.
“didn’t know you liked to get wet”
Fucking right! LOLOL I was like "LACED" WTF? That shit is legit not a factor.
I mean hell, if you're worried, rip a few open and see what's inside first, then smoke.
I hadn't heard the word "sherm" in years till a few weeks back
Eh to be fair I’m moreso worried about shitty moldy weed than laced weed.
It’s more likely to find shit like cbd flower sprayed with delta8 than actual laced weed.
What if they were made by an ultra fascist weed hater, and they rolled em with caustic soda inside and ya boy just smoke em and then he no feel very hapi and goes peeroom red stuff out and ugh ugh shdhfj ooogh *(dies)*
Yes I was thinking the exact same thing
Seriously, who the fuck is buying extra drugs just to put them in weed they want to leave somewhere? 99.9% of the time the only thing weed might possibly be laced with is stronger weed.
I found a roach on the ground at a tennis court when I was 8 years old. I knew exactly what it was from DARE class, so naturally I stole my mom's lighter and tried to smoke it.
DARE to do drugs.
Maybe the first one, but not the 20 after that
I've felt the same way before. But that's when you get someone else to try it first.
*enters the lab rat*
I'll give it a whirl, where you located.
Me second, preferably third to give time for the first lab rat to feel the effects
I'll come by with my own weed and lab rats. We can go to a hookah bar later.
russian roulette joints
Remember, kids, don't try this at home. Go to a friend's house.
It's probably just CBD. Gonna be disappointed.
yeah, everyone is talking about "laced" NOONE is wasting good crack on shitty prerolls. its 2022 not 1980 LA or a hollywood movie. its most likely sleepy time CBD
I once had a Step child tell me she got a dipped cig she bummed off someone to explain to us why she was wasted. Didn't believe it for a second but took care of her.
It’s not uncommon for alcoholics to be “convinced” they were roofied when in reality they just don’t realize the extent of their problem… or at least it happened to me and several other men in AA I’ve talked with…
16 years tokin, laced weed imo is a unicorn of a situation.
Yeah weed is cheap. The weird laced weed thing is a myth since you are taking a cheap product and making it more expensive unlike cutting coke. In that quantity it’s probably cheap weed. Weed with concentrate wrappers is individually sold at a premium in individual cases.
Right? These things that take effort like lacing drugs, swapping pills, etc. do happen but at such a low rate that it’s not worth living in anxiety over.
There's an almost 0% chance that this weed is laced.
Chances are much higher that it's probably just contaminated with ground germs, mold/fungi, or dangerous cleaning chemicals.
Like, how do you know that the previous owner didn't accidentally spray oven cleaner on them?
You're wise to not ingest it. Weed should be treated like food: if it's been abandoned on the ground, then you have no idea what it contains. If you wouldn't eat a slice of cake from the ground, then you should do the same with weed.
Those aren't likely to be laced with anything since they are obviously store bought.
Where are you located? I'll gladly take one for the team :)
I'd stick around from a distance and watch him go ape shit just for the entertainment.
youre a psychopath incase you dont know. Most dont.
During lockdown I found an entire ounce while walking the dogs. Made brownies, life was good
Huh, weird, I found an entire dog while I was walking my ounce.
edit: made some brownies but they tasted awful.
Answers to Brownie
Dog named brownies:
Put your brownie batta away waltuh
Top notch chicanery. Bravo Vince
I once found a garbage bin full of weed at my ex's house. [The big outdoor kind.](https://i.imgur.com/CERpKmy.png) Just stacked bottom to top. I lifted the lid to throw out some dog poop, and like 30lbs of weed in there. Her brother was a big time guy. We took one ziploc bag full each.
Why do you think it was there? Maybe a hiding place for someone's stash?
It was her brothers, and he was in and out of jail, and neither of us gave a shit about him since he already sent bullets flying one night.
Im out rn. I hate you so much for your luck
Something similar happened to a stoner friend of mine. We had to drive over two hours to this long 30km hiking spot.
About 40 mins away I pulled over so we could all piss, and while me and the misses did our bathroom business, our friend sparked up her pipe. However, she's such a burnout that after she placed the tupperware of weed on the car hood*, well you know, she forgot about it.
Couple minutes go by, everyone is ready to go and so we do. As we drove away, I couldn't help but notice something red bouncing on the highway in my mirror, I assumed it was a Timmie's cup. The red and all, but nope. It was a stash of some fine wacky tobaccy.
She made us go back, we never found it.
Edit: *Car roof.
Yeahhh I accidentally threw away over $250 of weed day before yesterday on a road trip at a gas station thinking it was food trash (was in a crumbled brown bag and there were other food bags in the car).
Was almost 200 miles away before I noticed. And no I wasn’t able to turn around, though I should’ve called the employees at that Shell and told them there’s a goldmine in their bin. This post makes me feel a little less shitty at least.
I would have left one in there and taken the rest lol leave a brotha one at least
Harsh, but fair.
Hash, but fair
Just think of the half smile on his face after realizing he was left one not by accident lol
Then realizing someone could’ve left the other 19 🤨
Only users lose drugs..
And your evening just got a hell of a lot better
You found a geo cache for Stoners. We leave the a lot in so cal.
Y'all just leave weed laying around for people?
Yeah, pretty much. If I'm going to a Padres game and I got an extra joint I won't be able to finish, I'll ask anyone around if they want it. If nobody says yes, I will leave it at a trolley ticket machine, with a lighter. I've smoked plenty of free weed I've found around pacific Beach or Oceanside.
I also make a big batch of rice krispies edibles every week and pass them out in the trolley or at games.
Always got a bag/joints on me in recreational states. I give joints to homeless when they ask for change.
When going back to the airport I seek someone out just arriving to the airport or homeless fella and give my left over.
I've had others do the same for me when I arrived at the airport (why I started doing it). karma is real. Hope your good karma comes back to you..
This happened to me and a couple bottles of booze at The Flamingo hotel in Las Vegas.
This is some true Californian shit right here. My buddies and I once gave out a half pound of bud on a trip to socal to promo our business.
Dang man! That's awesome to hear that! I live the sheltered life of a red state.
Literally never encountered this. I moved out of socal when I was 16 I would have fucking loved this knowledge then lol
This guy californias. I do the same.
Found weed is the best weed.
Sharing is caring 💚
Weed is stupid cheap in legal states. In Michigan you can pretty regularly get ounces for like $40 when the dispo has a sale. Maybe even cheaper.
Yeah I'm in Ohio, prices are pretty expensive here
Yeah, Illinois the prices are wack, literally no reason to go to a dispensary. Like $80 eighths.
If Halloween has taught me anything, those are laced with candy. Be careful OP.
From my months of experience with DARE in high school I know this is how drug dealers set traps to get you addicted to the devil’s lettuce.
If they’re taking a jar like that to the park there’s plenty more at home.
Hypothetically speaking, where would this jar be exactly
If they lost that much they were already stoned to Bejeebus.
And someone else's evening got better
And your evening just got better.
"I carefully placed my container of joints on the ground at a park, took a photo of it and put a pic up on Reddit for karma"
Hope those aren’t undercover Jeffreys
Edit: fixed misspelling
Or maybe they’re on r/leaves now and it doesn’t suck at all 🤷♀️
If drug education has taught me anything is that those are all laced with pcp and if you smoke them you will go crazy then die.
