Hilarious story! Left for boot in July of 89....from Columbus. Was raised extremely nieve! Got into the M.E.P.S.....spent the day there doing the final paperwork and swearing in and went to the hotel. My roomate and I were BORED OUT OF OUR MINDS after about 5 hours so I grabbed the plastic brochure holder off of the desk and threw it's contents onto the bed. We were looking for something to do. Well...along with all of the "to do" advertisements, fell out a rolled up 1/3 full gallon size bag of weed! (with 7 already rolled) Now, I'd never even layed eyes on it in real life but I have to tell you, I must have looked like a goldfish! My roomate was going ballistic! She started yelling stuff the lord himself hadn't created yet! Then she opened the bag and I freaked! She flushed the rolled ones and I called security....Some big dude came and took it..(smoked it I imagine) Roomate was still yelling..."I'll go in a cup..your not blamin me for this!"
