Just because laws are changing regarding the legality of marijuana use doesn’t mean that your weed should be left out in the open. Whether you have children, pets, or just want to ensure the safety and privacy of your stash from houseguests (or roommates), finding the right places to hide your weed at home is always a good idea.
Below are 10 creative ways to hide weed at home will help you make sure that your bud is available when you want it.
An Empty Electronic Battery Compartment
Your old electronics often have hiding spots that are just big enough to hide your weed. The battery compartments are a good hiding spot that most people won’t check. Consider using an alarm clock or handheld controller that no one is going to come looking for.
Old Clothing Pockets
Most likely, you have some old clothes hanging in your closet. This is a great time to make use of those old jacket pockets. However, you do need to be cautious with this tip if anyone goes through your room to find clothing to donate to a charitable cause.
Empty Out an Old Highlighter
Old markers and pens can have just enough space to hide small amounts of weed. Just make sure to remove the ink from the inside, and you’ll have a hollow tube that you can stash your weed inside.
Create an Open Space in a Pillow
People have been using stuffed animals for years to hide their weed, but one might look out of place in your living space. If so, then just open up a spot in a throw pillow where you can throw your container. This works best for pillows that you don’t expect people to use regularly.
Secure It In a Container With a False Bottom
One of the best ways to hide weed is in a place that no one cares to disrupt. Look for containers with a false bottom that are designed just for this purpose. These containers may look like food, deodorant or another type of household product. The best part is that they look completely normal if someone picks it up or tries to take off the lid.
Attach It to the Back of Wall Art
Those canvas pictures on your wall are also an easy hiding space. Just tape the baggie behind the art and put it back on the wall. If you share the room with other people, then make sure the art is hanging perfectly back in place or else they may get suspicious.
Put It Under a Hat
Hats are another simple hiding place. You can hide the weed beneath your hat as you walk through the house to get to your smoking spot. You can also hide the baggie inside a hat that you have hanging on the wall or a bedpost.
Tape It Underneath a Drawer
Snooping people tend to go rifling through drawers, but they almost never think to look underneath. Pull out a drawer and tape the bag to the bottom. For extra security, use the lowest drawer that no one wants to bother pulling out.
Hide It In a Coffee Can
The best weed is stinky, which also poses a problem for hiding it well. Coffee helps to disguise the smell, and you can bury a bag deep within the can. Keep in mind that this is best if you are the only coffee drinker, or you could be giving your roommate free access to your stash.
Hollow Out a Book
The old hollowed out book trick still works. You can find books that are already designed for this purpose, or just make your own. Then, stick the book in an inconspicuous place such as your shelves.
Hiding can be necessary when you have children, curious pets, or simply want to make sure that it’s safe in an inconspicuous location. To do this, pick out a few good hiding places, and make sure not to forget where you hid your marijuana stash. Feeling confident that your weed is right where you left it is always comforting when it’s times to light up again. You can also check out a few discreet bags to keep your stash in while at home or on the go.
