A safe at the Fairhope (Alabama) Museum of History was opened on Thursday for the first time in almost forty years.
So, just what did Fairhope residents think was in the big black box? Some of the people waiting to see what was inside made their guesses, “Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches,” “My guess would be city clerk’s documents,” “I said nothing.”
It turned out there wasn't food, overdue paperwork or an empty safe, but it's safe to say the contents were shocking. Inside the safe was marijuana, and lots of it.
Museum officials found the drug falling out of bags, boxes and envelopes. “We like to draw some history; we like to find out some things we didn’t know. I’m a little disappointed we didn’t find a lot of history – we found a lot of dope,” said Barrett. [Link]
