The man was buying mulch and brushed a stick away from it. The stick turned out to be a rattle snake.
The OPSEC FAIL part was that they listed his first & last name, the city it happened in, and that he was buying mulch for his licensed marijuana plants.
Seriously? He's growing licensed pot and they just gave everyone enough data to obtain his home address.
please no debates on whether or not he should have a license... this is just about being careful when handling other people's personal data. They should have never posted his name period, cos they basically made his home a target. I'm betting that he's going to have a break in within the year.
