On the nose

Found in Melbourne CBD: Numerous evidence bags containing white powder and a plastic spoon.
Lost in Melbourne CBD: Credibility of one Sydney marketing company who reportedly planted 300 of the evidence bags around the city to promote the Melbourne International Comedy Festival Comicide. At least two of the "authentic" looking bags were handed in to police - although it's unsure if those handing them in had read the instructions on the label which would have landed them free tickets to the gig.
No mention was made of the fate of the other bags; what the white powder was, and whether it would harm anyone ingesting it (thinking, perhaps, it was something else).
