A black market for Spam in Hawaii is forcing retailers to store the canned meat product behind lock and key to stop a string of thefts. The rash of heists of the mystery meat – a processed blend of pork known for its incredibly long shelf life – has prompted some proprietors to treat it like a pricey luxury item, putting the cans behind plastic cases to stop shoplifters looking to flip the island “staple” for quick cash, the Washington Post reports.
I knew Hawaiians love Spam, but a black market on a non-restricted non-addictive item? Am I missing something here?
This is not a good indicator for the legalization of drugs. Just my two cents.
