    Perfectly ground powder ready to be used by some offshore pharmaceutical company as an inert ingredient in their capsules.
    or ready to be melted down into glass again.
    Maybe it could be used in a sting operation by the DEA as a faux elicit drug. Sound crazy? I've seen camel dung molded and sold as hashish by the Military CID to catch a guy dealing.
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    @ Frank

    You have to wonder how long they were grinding to get that level of pulverization.

    I know it always happens to everyone else but the only way you would catch me grinding glass into powder would be if I were wearing a pressurized breathing mask with filtered air

    Yeah, it's not the powder you can see that gets you, it's the super fine ones that get blown out and hover in the air you breath.
    The little micro shards go way deep in your lungs.
    Cut you slow.
