A small business owner is using a unusual incentive to encourage residents to clean up their town. Mehan says the program is about bringing awareness to the "life-changing" nature of cannabis as well.

Speaking on the town in Colorado that did something similar, Meehan said, "They had a great response to this".

After the success of the event, Meehan posted on Facebook about possibly opening the "trash-for-marijuana" program up to the entire state.

"It's profund, and the research, there's a whole world of science out there. It doesn't just affect that patient, it affects every single person in that family", Meeham said.

USA Today reports that a "few dozen" people have already turned in their bags of trash for weed, but he hopes to expand cleanup days statewide.

You know how some people collect tons of recycling and take it to MI or other states that give money for those goods? The additional hurdle that the ME statute as a whole creates for employers is the fact that there now are no scientifically proven ways to determine whether an employee is under the influence of marijuana. Each person over the age of 21 who brought a bag of trash back earned a gram of marijuana.
