“He fumbled the bag,” said one user. While another commenter holds similar sentiment: “I never understand why people mess up their blessings.”

Other users mocked the idea of selling or keeping the drugs as that would be extremely dangerous, not to mention illegal.

“So now everyone comments think finding drugs a blessing,” comments another user.

“I would have done the same s**t, I’m not el Chapo wtf am I supposed to do with that,” is another example of a similar reaction.
