How Marijuana Dealers are Getting More Creative When Selling
Marijuana dealers are getting more and more creative with their methods of distribution. As the local government invests more money, time, and officers in an attempt to squash the marijuana craze in Palm Beach County, dealers are stuffing their pot into anything from cupcakes to Subway sandwich bags.
Marijuana Methods of Distribution
According to an article in WPTV News, a Fort Pierce Subway employee was arrested on Thursday morning by St. Lucie County Sheriff’s investigators who said she was selling marijuana to patrons who asked for ‘extra meat’ on their sandwiches.
Elizabeth Hunter, 47 known as “Liz” was allegedly selling marijuana from inside a Hess gas station/Subway Fort Pierce. According to St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office on May 10th and May 26th, undercover deputies used the code words ‘extra meat’ when they ordered sandwiches from Hunt.
“The ‘extra meat’ was a baggie of marijuana that Hunt slipped into the sandwich bag,” Sheriff Ken Mascara said in a written release. The arrest affidavit also states that Hunt asked the undercover deputies to, “put the $10 in the tip jar.”
Hunt then placed the marijuana inside the subway sandwich bag, and is now being held in the St Lucie county jail on a $55,000 bond on two counts of sale and delivery of marijuana within 1,000 feet of a convenience store, one count of possession of marijuana with intent to sell within 1,000 feet of a convenience store and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia.
Only recently, a drug dealer was caught using a very creative method of distribution. He was arrested selling pot cupcakes to South Miami High School students at $10 a piece.
