Some Massachusetts “Super Troopers” are looking for the rightful owners of two bags of marijuana. (Not that they plan to give them back.)
Police said a good Samaritan found a duffel bag containing the marijuana on the side of the road.
In a tweet, the department used the hashtag #litteringandsmokingthereefer.
Anyone lose a gym bag containing a huge amount of cannabis near 5 corners last night? Don’t panic, a Good Samaritan found it in the road and brought it to our station. Please come to the police station to collect it. #LitteringAndSmokingTheReefer pic.twitter.com/5ta8vsCg8h

The line is a direct reference to an opening scene in the movie “Super Troopers.”
While possession of marijuana is legal in Massachusetts, a person cannot legally transport the amount found in the duffel bag. The state only allows a person to travel with up to 1 ounce.
Penalties for littering in Massachusetts vary greatly. Civil tickets start with a $20 fine and possible seven-day suspension on the person’s license. Among the most severe criminal penalties is a $15,000 fine and possible seizure of the person’s vehicle.
