In Michigan, if a person receives food stamps (known in the state as "Bridges") purchases a can of soda (known as "pop" in Michigan) then pours it out all over the ground, returns to the store with the empty can for a refund on the deposit, that is considered breaking the law.
In Michigan, it is believed "drunks" use their MI Bridges card to purchase items with deposits on them, empty them and then use the monies received from the deposit to purchase a bottle of wine or a can of beer or more than that some kind of liquor.
Amazing. By simply owning a "MI Bridges" card whether in use or not for receiving food stamps and one pours out the contents of a "container with a deposit" the police can arrest you. The idiocy in all that is rather remarkable.
