Vancouver Police are not pleased with a new game that hides marijuana in public places before tweeting out clues.

The game is a takeoff of one that began at the end of May in San Fancisco when someone began dropping envelopes full of cash across the Bay Area which caused a stir on social media.

The spinoff arrived in Vancouver with cash and then beer being the prizes.

The someone in Vancouver has decided to hide marijuana in public places, which raised concerns with VPD.

“The hidden money was interesting. The hidden beer was fun — maybe not well-thought-out, but [it had] good intentions. The hidden marijuana is a bit ridiculous,” Vancouver Police Department’s Const. Brian Montague told CBC News.

“The biggest concern is a young person is going to find this and consume it.”

Montague said the person tweeting the hidden pot may not have realized that they could be charged for doing so.

“Even if you’re not selling it to someone, if you’re basically delivering it someone, that is considered trafficking,” he said.
