    A customer reportedly tried to pay his bill with a bag of marijuana.

    America’s Diner is always open, but the only green it accepts is cash – not weed.

    Niagara Falls police were reportedly on the hunt for a man who tried to settle his $9.91 Denny’s bill with a bag of marijuana.

    Police said the attempted illicit swap went down shortly after 2 a.m. Saturday when a customer offered a Denny’s restaurant cashier a bag of pot and $1, BuffaloNews.com reported.

    After the cashier refused the deal, the weed-toting customer then tried to sell his stash to other customers, police said.

    The man eventually fled the restaurant into a wooded area before police arrived, BuffaloNews reported.

    But a Denny’s employee reportedly recognized the customer and gave his name to police.

    He was not at home when officers showed up at his house.
