“I am selling you an empty bag. Marijuana placed In that empty sandwich bag is simply a legal gift,” says a Massachusetts guy on Craigslist. Pot is now legal to possess in Massachusetts. It is not legal to sell it, but people are allowed to gift up to an ounce. An empty bag costs between $20 and $325, depending on the size of the free gift inside.
Northwestern District Attorney David Sullivan said the guy is breaking the law. He told NEPR, “To say an empty baggie costs $350 is ridiculous,” he said. “I think it’s a clear fraud on its face.”
