I'm sorry but if someone hands me an envelope containing powder of any kind I'm certainly not going to stick it in my pocket and forget about it. That's ridiculous even for a rookie, never mind a seasoned employee!

I can't wait to see what the DOC has to say about this in their next Legislative hearing...
