$175,000.00 worth of weed or in an actual cooking utensil? I am not going to read the article.

Legaspi suggested removing the hatches completely so the bag's owner would quickly know it was found. Reed opted against it, fearing a gardener or one of his kids would fall into the vault. Crime-scene tape seemed excessive and a mean message could make matters worse.

Reed got a better idea.


I have an even better better idea, since you figured out it was Facebook that got you into this mess. Hint hint.

Then the police took the $100,000 worth of weed to the police station. After that the $50,000 worth of weed was checked into the evidence room.

Man, I can't get enough of that meme.

The only thing that got weird was the author trying to fluff up the story with his (likely fictional) paranoid fantasies.

He found drugs and called the cops then the cops came and took the drugs. End of story. Nothing weird.

If it was labeled as the article describes someone is going to be really really bummed out.

duffel bag hidden under a hot tub full of weed in jars ?

Sounds like someone cleaned out their headstash in a hurry. Most people wouldn't be transporting large amounts of MJ in glass jars. Too much of a hassle and weighs to much. Not to mention the noise jars would make clanging around.

I wonder if a dispensary in the area got robbed.

And some evil bastard has stuffed a bag of dope into a hole behind my house and turned my life into the backdrop of a James Ellroy noir.

So instead the guy has to phone the PD single-o. The officer's shaking his head. "Can you believe this guy? What a schmuck. People that stupid deserve to become meat bags."

Knowing how newspapers and cops inflate the price of weed, there was probably a half smoked joint of shiatty commercial herb found with a sneaker imprint on it.

"Drive it in yourself..."

Yeah, right. Cop was probably hoping that the guy would be stupid enough and have someone to arrest on the spot. Makes it easier for everyone.

"Tune in next week for the next episode of "DEA - Drug War 2013" where DEA agents realize that this "Prime Suspect" err, we mean man, is arrested for major narcotics violations and for yelling and crying when SWAT officials broke down his door at 2am, shot his two dogs, parrot, and turtle (just to be "Breaking Bad" safe!) with shotguns, 9mm and flash grenades, and then took out his 87 year old grandmother with a stun gun after she showed officers "Threatening Behavior"! The Department of Justice has initiated proceeding to claim the $4 million dollar home, the 2011 Jeep Rubicon and 1963 Corvette Stingray, the vacation home on Catalina Island, and his Bank of Amerika checking, savings and retirement accounts all forfeit as proceeds from evil, evil Schedule 1 Narcotics violations!"

On a related note, today I proofread a bill that classifies marijuana and hashish as hallucinogens.

Since he was opening the vault area for a worker, I think he had to do the right thing and call it in. If he didn't, he ran the risk of having the worker do it.

Still, if he's a fan of the mary jane, I'm sure that he cherry picked and sampled that stash down to a nice 175K before phoning the cops.

Cannabis and hashish are both psychotropics, not hallucinogens but, thanks for playing.

Marijuana, LSD, and PCP

Marijuana and hashish, two substances derived from the hemp plant (Cannabis sativa), are also considered natural hallucinogens, although their potency (power) is very low when compared to others. Marijuana (also called grass, pot, tea, weed, or reefer), a green herb from the flower of the hemp plant, is considered a mild hallucinogen. Hashish is marijuana in a more potent, concentrated form. Both drugs are usually smoked. Their effects include a feeling of relaxation, faster heart rate, the sensation that time is passing more slowly, and a greater sense of hearing, taste, touch, and smell.
