Pot for payment isn't a good idea

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - November 9, 2010

It was offered as payment.

But it's not money.

A North Dakota man has been sentenced to six days in the slammer, after offering pot for payment in a bar.

Richard Hanley Junior has pleaded guilty to misdemeanor marijuana possession and disorderly conduct.

Authorities say he bumped into a server at a Bismarck bar.

Drinks were spilled and another employee demanded payment.

Prosecutors say Hanley offered to make good on the booze with a baggie of pot.
