A Niagara Falls man was left high and dry this weekend when he attempted to pay for a meal with marijuana.

At around 2:00 am on Saturday, the man ordered $9.91 worth of food at a Denny's restaurant in Niagara Falls, N.Y., then allegedly offered the cashier $1.00 and a bag of marijuana, according to MSN.

When the cashier wouldn't accept the marijuana, the persistent pothead openly attempted to sell it to other Denny's customers, the Buffalo News reported. The cashier then called the local police, but the man fled into a nearby forest before they arrived.

Another restaurant patron recognized the marijuana monger and was able to provide the police with the man's name and address, according to the Digital Journal. The police showed up at his house later that day, but he was apparently not at home.

The investigation remains ongoing.
