Can You Find the “Hidden Weed” in Vancouver?

608px-Medical_MarijuanaDo you like scavenger hunts? Are you looking to score some herb, man? Well, if you live in Vancouver and like to frequent Twitter, you can check out HiddenWeedYVR, an account that leaves clues about stashes of hidden weed throughout Vancouver.

“Hidden Weed” is a different take on “Hidden Cash,” the money craze started by an anonymous millionaire real estate investor in San Francisco in May. The man started hiding envelopes, each with a $100 bill, around the city and used Twitter to help strangers find the money.

The “Hidden Cash” craze has spread throughout the United States and Canada. Vancouver has also seen “Hidden Beer” and “Hidden Weed,” which started June 4 and had more than 2,300 followers Monday.

“It’s making everyone happy at the beginning of summer,” said Robert Craig, who found a marijuana “prize” on Sunday. “It’s pretty funny. It’s pretty lighthearted.”

He was following the Hidden Weed Twitter account when he saw a clue indicating the marijuana was six blocks from his house.

The 35-year-old and his girlfriend found their prize, a container filled with four grams of “very high quality” marijuana, in a flower bed downtown.

Mr. Craig split the prize with another searcher who “looked like he was having a rough day,” he said.

He suspects a Vancouver dispensary is behind the gimmick. He points to the containers in which the drug is found, saying they are the same ones dispensaries use, with built-in grinders, and also to the quality of the marijuana. He thinks it’s probably all a public relations stunt.

Six canisters were hidden on Sunday.

Vancouver police say they are aware of the “Hidden Weed” scavenger hunts. While no incidents have yet been reported to police, the person who is distributing the pot could “technically” be considered a trafficker.

    Why does Canada get all the cool shit?

      i’ll trade you ‘cool shit’ for ‘hawaii.’

      • make that ‘northwest hawaii’ and you might have a deal

        but let’s be clear:
        We’re getting:
        free weed hunts
        socialized medicine
        the longest street in the world
        the remains of all involved in the Winnie The Pooh™ Saga
        moose and squirrel
        maple syrup
        The Big Nickel
        Leslie Nielsen
        55,000 species of insects
        the Canadian side of Niagra Falls (you’re welcome to the immediate vicinity on the US side IDGAF)
        preternatural hockey curling talent
        Yearly delivery of The Hotel de Glace™ to a location of my choosing
        the long desert boardwalk (minus desert)
        a better spot in the queue to be knighted by the Queen Reptile


        a few additional stipulations:
        give the First Nations whatever they want; Duh Fedz are starting to look benevolent by comparison lately (obvs you guys can’t top an Obama™ photo op, but use your imaginations)
        make sure the tar sands stay north of the 49th Parallel; no exceptions
        relocate Justin Beiber™ & Avril Lavigne™ to the wastes of Alberta or Montréal or something; just keep them separated at all costs or Anti-Christ, basically
        stop having your elections hijacked by Duh Neo-Cons; instead ÿ endorse Leonard Cohen, Keanu Reeves, and Jim Carrey to manage your land of eternal ice, snow, & darkness (not necessarily in that order)

        Finally, you must extend every courtesy under the sun, moon, and ⅚ of the stars to @amancalledda_da:disqus, who I hear-by decree mÿ Ambassador To The North℗! Also, thou shalt adopt his engaging travelogue as a cornerstone of the tourism industry:
