I bought into the Oaks tournament today, and there was a small packet of medical marijuana sitting on the cashier's counter... Someone had clearly set it down by mistake, pteobably while buying into the tournament. What would you do in my shoes? (I don't smoke pot, so I had no interest in keeping it.)

I had salmon for lunch, so I think I'll make it no-red-meat month. Dunno about poultry yet.

What I did: grabbed it and gave it to the tournament director. He seemed uncertain of what to do, but seemed inclined to find the owner. "Should I make an announcement? Maybe it belongs to that guy in the wheelchair..."

So I guess the obvious question - how do you know it was for medicinal purposes?

The bag had a label from a medical marijuana club.

If I were the tournament director, I think I'd make a general lost-&-found announcement, perhaps adding that in the lost-&-found was someone's medical paraphenalia. Something vague yet indicating medical materials, and if the owner decided to check, he/she could ask for it specifically. Either that, or call the medical marijuana club to see if there was an ID number on the bag somewhere that would help identify the owner.

Ask the cashier to identify the last ten or so people who had registered, and contact them to ask if they had lost medication. If they could say what it was, and possibly show their ID card, then they get it. Otherwise, meanwhile, contacting the association to see if they can give the name or contact the patient.

Nope. It actually happened.

He found the guy he thought it belonged to. It did.

You beat me to it. It belongs to that guy in the wheelchair (the skinny guy in the wheelchair, not the fat guy in the wheelchair). I bet you a tournament buy-in that it does.

No bet. It's already been returned to him.
