Seems like there should be more to this story than what the CBC is telling us.

Personally relieved to discover “sell a man a fish” was not a euphemism.

Why was the man trying to buy the boy’s fish?

Give a man a fish, he eats for a day.
Teach a man to fish, he eats for a lifetime.
Teach a man to trade fake weed for fish, he is outsmarted by a young boy, throws a temper tantrum and ends up in jail.

I always thought that adage seemed narratively unresolved.

That’s way too premature. Have you forgotten that this is an election year in the US? The possibilities are greater than one can imagine.

Do you know that Donald Trump is campaigning for President in the Republican primaries?

Was it a tropical fish? Maybe this was all just a misunderstanding about what was meant by “trading for reefer.”
