Cannabis club offers free joint for every bag of trash at park cleanup

- Fill a bag with trash, get a free joint. That was the deal at a cleanup event Sunday at Bancroft Park in Colorado Springs.

It was sponsored by The Pothole Cannabis Club. The club hosted similar events at other parks during the summer months.

On Sunday, more than 100 bags of trash were collected. The Pothole’s owner said the goal for his group was to show the community, members were more than a bunch of stoners.

"They painted a bad picture for us. They think we are just some stoners that just get high and don't have no lives or no kids or have any responsibilities.  It's not like that.  We're just like them. We're just normal, like-minded people smoking cannabis. There's not a bar or another cannabis club out there that's doing positive things.  And I'm just trying to hold to my word that I said in the beginning and do positive impacts,” explained Pothole owner Steve Pacheco.

The free joints were offered to adults 21 and older. Items that were not pot-related were available for children.
