Someone Stashed Weed In Oakland -- Go Find It

Categories: FYI, Marijuana

Not long ago, a no-longer anonymous millionaire had the Bay Area rapt with his philanthropic plan and accompanying Twitter feed. Who could forget "Hidden Cash" and its internet-friendly stashes of Jacksons and Franklins scattered about the Bay?

Now, it appears there's a Hidden Cash-type event for stoners, too.

On Saturday, any medical marijuana card holder willing to shell out $35 can take part in the "Bay Area Quest Hunt," a scavenger hunt where the jackpot is marijuana.

The hunt, and its promised payout of pot, works like this: Scattered all over Oakland will be clues. The clues lead to cards, and cards can be cashed in for cannabis -- eighths and grams of flowers and concentrates, according to the organizers' website.

Just who is behind this "Hidden Stash," and what do they want?

We don't know. An e-mail and telephone call to the Google voice number of the organizer has not yet been returned.

As far as we can tell, Bay Area Quest Hunt is perfectly legal: the contest is open only to people with valid California IDs and valid medical cannabis recommendations. Since it's more or less legal to sell weed to anyone with both of those things, it should be acceptable to hand it over to someone who bought a ticket to a contest... we think.

It wasn't too long ago that being a marijuana smoker required some kind of cloaking device. Knowledge and know-how of the down-low and the discrete were givens by necessity.

So a little bit of mystery and intrigue sounds fun. And hey -- it's an excuse to get high and roam around Oakland on a warm Saturday.

The contest runs for three hours on Saturday and is open to just 500 people.

For $35 you can just go buy 1/8s or grams at the dispensary. This would be cool if it was free, or if they were giving away zips.
