  1. You can purchase a vacuum sealer and bags in different sizes depending on how much weed you are storing. Since vacuum sealing removes all of the air from the bag, it keeps weed from molding too. The refrigerator is probably the best place to store the weed when vacuum sealed rather than the freezer

  2. Double bag it, in two Ziploc freezer bags. Then put it in a coffee tin, surrounded by French roast coffee beans.

    This will kill the smell for a human, but not a drug-sniffing canine.
