Found: Pot (Lots of Pot) in a Porta-Potty

In Rogue River, Ore., a man walking his dog in the park in the morning opened a Porta-Potty, and found a lot of pot.

He called the local police, for whom this was a record marijuana discovery. It is not clear yet who put the pot in the Porta-Potty or why. The Associated Press reports: “Chief Ken Lewis and his officers have not yet been able to hash out the circumstances behind what became the largest marijuana find in department history.”

They do know that just three hours prior there were no drugs to be found in the Porta-Potty. Possession of small amounts of marijuana is allowed in Oregon, but this is way, way more than the legal limit.
