If you love sparking up 'da mota, Houston will pay you to do it!!

The downside is that you don't get to smoke any of it though. The Houston DEA office is looking for someone to burn marijuana they don't need anymore. Apparently, they've got a buttload of it too:

The posting outlines that the contractor must be able to incinerate up to 1,000 pounds of bulk marijuana per hour, up to eight hours a day. Any workers associated with the incineration will be subject to a background check and drug testing. - abc13.com

Yep, they drug test the drug burners. They found other ways to make this gig suck too....

To ensure that this deal is a mundane government job, not a non-stop party, the DEA would have a representative present during the incineration. Other security measures include a closed-circuit surveillance system to make sure the drugs are secure before incineration. - abc13.com

Doesn't sound like much fun really but, hey ... a job's a job.  If you want to apply for this one, click here.
