'''Basic Trope''': A mundane product is sold as a valuable (and usually illegal) one.
* '''Straight''': Bob sells "marijuana" that is actually just bits and pieces of oregano.
* '''Exaggerated''': Bob sells wood shavings as marijuana.
* '''Downplayed''': Bob sells actual marijuana, but claims it's "stickier" (that is, more potent) than it actually is.
* '''Justified''':
** Bob is an undercover cop in a sting operation.
** Bob is a {{con artist}}, looking to make some quick money.
* '''Inverted''': Bob sells marijuana, but tells people it's only oregano.
* '''Subverted''': Bob sells actual marijuana.
* '''Double Subverted''': He claims the pot to be a new "super-sticky" variety, when it's just a more mundane "average potency" type.
* '''Parodied''': When the would-be stoners find out that Bob sold them oregano, they literally stone him.
* '''Zig Zagged''': Sometimes Bob vends actual marijuana, sometimes oregano (typically when his normal supply is running short.)
* '''Averted''': Bob does not sell anything, legal or otherwise.
* '''Enforced''': The writers want a quick way to show off Bob's ConArtist nature while giving him victims that people will feel less sympathy for because they believe DrugsAreBad.
* '''Lampshaded''': "Hey...this isn't pot! This is just oregano!"
* '''Invoked''': Bob, TheAggressiveDrugDealer, is running short on supply, but very high on demand. He doesn't want to tell his customers "no," so he puts oregano into bags and sells it as pot.
* '''Exploited''': ???
* '''Defied''': Bob knows this will anger customers. Angry customers mean lost business, and lost business means no money. (Not to mention, [[HookersAndBlow in this industry]], angering the wrong people can put Bob's life and safety (and/or that of [[IHaveAFamily his family]]) at risk.) So he doesn't try to pass off oregano as marijuana.
* '''Discussed''': ???
* '''Conversed''': ???
