HOUSTON (CNN) – The Drug Enforcement Administration has been inundated with calls after a recent job posting.
The position? Burning marijuana.
“We dispose and burn a number of drugs marijuana, methamphetamines, prescription pills,“ said DEA special agent Sammy Parks.
Now, the agency is looking for a vendor who can burn 1,000 pounds of pot bundles each hour for at least eight hours a day.
“It targets a facility that is well-established, licensed, meets EPA requirements. This is not something a private citizen can do,“ Parks said.
Whoever gets the job would have to destroy marijuana, meth, cocaine and expired prescriptions confiscated during drug take-back events along with other substances. You must also move to Texas for the gig.
“Every two years a solicitation goes out for a vendor.“
The contract would end in September.
