Man discovers $4,800 in pot inside painting

Eighty-year-old Gordon Clement just wanted some art to spruce up his home. But when he turned around a few years later to sell off his art he found a nice little surprise: $4,800 in pot. Find out more after the jump.

Gordon discovered the weed when he decided to sell off his painting at another auction last weekend. Originally, he was planning on auctioning it off for $25. Thankfully, he didn’t. Freaked out by the presence of weed in his beloved painting, Gordon called his lawyer and turned the art over the police.

Really? The guy may have one foot in the grave right now, but I’m sure he could find some use from $4,800. He should have just hit up his local pusher and seen what he could have done.
