Moron of the Day: You Can Smell That?

"Because I can't smell anything..."
The musty smell of a man's money led to his arrest on possible drug charges. The 21-year-old Sturgeon Bay man tried to deposit money smelling of marijuana at a bank here last week, according to a Sturgeon Bay police report obtained by the Door County Advocate.

The $4,000 in bundled bills did not smell like burned marijuana but had a musty odor of ground sweet leaves, the report said.

The smell was so strong and distinct that a teller put the cash in a plastic bag. Sturgeon Bay police tested it for marijuana, and it came back positive, the report said.

The unidentified man is seeking $800 in damages from the bundle of cash for 'bogarting his stash.'*

While marijuana doesn't make you as aggressive or clumsy as alcohol is most certainly wins in the retardity category. Evidently, it also impairs your ability to detect strong, distinct odors that may incriminate you. I just wonder how long he sat at that stop sign by the bank waiting for it to turn green.

* - I may have made up that last part.
