    Apparently it has a street value of $10,000. How would the poor passenger try explaining being in possession of the drugs to a police officer?

    That was stupid. I know in the US the test bags they use are bags that have gone unclaimed at the airport. So they still have everything from the person in them. It was stupid using a real passages bag. When they do the test in the US they will put the random bag among real bags but since it does not belong to any one it is not as much of a problem.

    Dude, it's like a tradition. They give everyone a bag when they come over. If you don't take it, they'll be insulted!

    Sweeeet, duuuude. :)

    $10,000? That's $70 a gram!

    Cripes! Weed sure must expensive in Japan, or the 'official' street price is a bit 'high'.

    And 142g is about 5 ounces. That's a big bag. Either those dogs are due for replacement or that wasn't very good pot. :)

    finally police are working for cannabis users, rather than against them!

    Wow, whoever estimated a street value of $10000 per bag should try finding a new dealer.

    i love the google ads for vienna-tokyo flights + hotel ads at the bottom of this thread ...

    that said i wonder where this bag will end up ... the only way it could get more comical is the finder bringing the bag back minus X grams, only to be charged for drug use ;)

    Be funny if someone goes to the police with an empty bag and an explanation:
    "My dog FOUND IT, ate it...." =p
