That's not a bad idea.

Hard mode is buying loose leaf tea and putting it into ziplock bags before packing. Extra hard mode - do the same but with sage and oregano.

I once had to unload an entire 20ft box truck full of arts and crafts from Mexico because the customs dudes couldn't tell the difference between the smell of fresh rush matting and weed. I mean really, you would think, right? Anyway, the nice little labrador they put in the truck obviously did know the difference and gave me the all clear. And no, they didn't help me repack

They should have rolled some up and smoked it, to remove all doubt.

They were about 6 x 4ft. That would have been quite a roll.

That wasn't their first clue it might not have been dope?

I don't think they actually thought that the rug itself was dope (although one can't be sure), just that I had dope in the truck due to the smell. You don't have to be a dog to recognize the smell of weed, ffs, and it smells nothing at all like rush matting.

Mind you, this was the same lot that though some spilled laundry powder was worth investigating as possible coke.

I remember when Leroy went to Mexico in his yellow Volvo Canadian, and the guards at Nuevo Laredo stopped him coming back. They put a big Shepherd in the car and he immediately tried to bite the front seat and started barking furiously. They took the seats out, found nothing. Looked everywhere; nothing. He said he hadn't had a toke the whole time he was in Mexico, but the dog was good enough to catch the scent of crumbs from rolling joints there at the drive-in months before.
