"He is charged with possessing a controlled substance with intent to deliver."

??? Deliver to whom? Smokey the bear? Ok, I could see this as a cross border smuggling thing since this is WA state. But why would you import pot INTO BC? Article needs more detail.

But why would you import pot INTO BC?

He was taking a backpack full of weed from BC into WA. You can just walk over the border in a lot of places, but there's a lot of eyes on you while you do it.

I presume he thought a more remote location would be less conspicuous. It obviously was less noticable...but he obviously didn't figure out how to get himself back to civilization once he'd crossed the 49th parallel.

Not a hiker. A smuggler. Different species.

I believe "intent to deliver" is the same as "intent to distribute" and you get charged with that if you have more than just a tiny amount. Or something along those lines.

"In England, Smoky the Bear is not the forest fire prevention representative. They have Smacky the Frog. It's just like a bear, but it's a frog.

Be careful, my friend.

I never hike near the US border.

Not because I'm worried about getting busted, but because the closest mountains are all north of me. Langley is pretty, but very flat.

What's "extra" weed?

Not the two joints in my pocket, one of which will be smoked at the top of the mountain and the other of which will be smoked at the end of the hike. "Extra" weed is in the backpack in case I'm out in the woods for longer than anticipated.

around here it is more than an ounce. that isnt a personal stash at that point (unless you have REALLY crappy weed)

How much did he have on him? You would assume that if he was lost and sent out an sos he would have the braisn to dump the stuff. Unless it was either a whole lot, or just a personal amount.

So what if a person has half a pound or maybe just 2 ounces?

What would the intent be then?

I know a *friend* who used to keep those kinds of amounts and it was just for personal use.

Exactly. I usually only keep about a quarter around and it lasts me a few months because I'm a lightweight pinch-hitter kind of guy. But even if I had a pound I don't feel like there would be "extra". I'd get to it all eventually.

If you do it correctly by extracting the THC into a lipid (like butter) it takes very little, and you don't need high quality product. Best part about extraction is that you can toss in all types of plant matter that one would not normally smoke (stems, leaves, etc). It's a waste to use the primo stuff as a cooking ingredient.

With thick enough plastic you can basically laminate that shiat, pack it in a little coffee, and you're good to go. Unless they have a well trained dog - no guarantees there. But no human could smell weed packed that well. He's probably just a moron who consented to the search or maybe he had a record.

Maybe he was smoking it when he was up there, thereby making that kind of packing impractical. Or maybe he didn't plan on getting lost and then found by authorities, thereby not worrying about the search.

Some things that are edible in the winter in the rainforests of the Pacific Northwest:

orgeon grape - must be boiled before eating

leftover blackberries, huckleberries and salmonberries that are withered on the vine

fiddleheads (also should be boiled first due to salmonella risk) and other fern parts (make sure you're not eating hemlock, Socrates!)

game / small critters - presumes one has ability to trap, skin and cook small animals.

devil's claw root - gross, but edible, non-toxic and nutrient-filled.

Personally, I'd rather take a sandwich, bottled water and a couple of Snickers bars plus have some space-food in reserve. I think going hiking with a "I'll just forage!" attitude is pretty stupid and possibly deadly.

They'd direct them right to the worst crossing spot. Most areas have sensors, cameras, and flashing lights so that when someone crosses, they trip the alarm and Border Patrol comes in.

Also, I'm surprised he even made it as far as sort of by Glacier. I would have expected him to get stuck somewhere on the Canadian side, it's pretty rough hiking in that area.

How awful, he was caught with a mind altering drug that he himself might have consented to consume in order to affect his own body, or sell it to people who similarly consent to affect their own body. This swine should be in an electric chair!

No, seriously, how do Republicans supporting the War on Drugs take themselves seriously?

Any idiot can buy one of those vacuum packing deals off the internet. With thick enough plastic you can basically laminate that shiat, pack it in a little coffee, and you're good to go.

They could also rent the movie Belly and take notes. Now I'm going to take a balloon up my ass to Spain.

Why would somebody go wandering around the Cascades in the winter time to deliver drugs? If you're an experienced hiker, sure, but if you're just trying to deliver some dope, that's a dumb way to try to kill yourself.

untrustworthy: If shopping can be an addiction, then anything can be addictive.

Sure, psychologically. But physiologically? Not so much. I certainly miss it when I'm out (NOW!! DAMMIT!! NOW!) but addicted? NO. THC just clicks into receptors in my brain like the other serotonin uptake inhibitors that I take do, not as a replacement, but as a complement. I would get all squirrelly if you took away my Effexor, too.

Oh no what can you eat?!?! All the way in the remote reaches of Washington? No one has ever lived up here in the winter ever! Everything is always covered in snow! Everyone knows humans we're created by God 6000 years ago knowing how to farm and already living in cities. Natives obviously survived by eating babies and pixie dust.

Your ignorance is why the planet is dying. If you really want the answer to your question I suggest you go find out on your own. There is an incredible world waiting out there fo you that you've completely sheltered yourself from. You are an alien on your own planet.
Hows it feel?

Here's a map of BC rainforest area.

Yes, the "untouched" old growth is all up-island. The whole of Vancouver Island and pretty much everything on the mainland that's west of the Okanagan valley is temperate rainforest though.

Same ferns, berries, lichens, mosses and big pines and cedars.

Detour

I believe "intent to deliver" is the same as "intent to distribute" and you get charged with that if you have more than just a tiny amount. Or something along those lines.

Hypothetical crime? LOL. Further proof that the "system" is flawed and doesn't work. No wonder the jails are overcrowded.


If he was carrying a gun (and middle-eastern heritage or Muslim faith) he'd be a terrorist. However, this looks more like poor execution by the pack mule than overzealous policing.
 
2006-12-06 07:38:07 PM
I don't get how he thought he could traverse a mountainous wilderness border with no food. Were talking high rugged mountains here, deep in snow!

And yes, I know the area. I reckon he was on the north side of Church mountain, at the base of it, not up on the high ridges. The south side is where the trail is.

Maybe he was trying to cross through the Lake Tomyhoi area, and just plain got lost in, yes!, the deep deep snow.

I wonder if he even had snowshoes.

"Also, I'm surprised he even made it as far as sort of by Glacier. I would have expected him to get stuck somewhere on the Canadian side, it's pretty rough hiking in that area."

You have it sort of backwards, in this case. For the specific area this guy was in.
This guy got close to the border very easily from canada, then underestimated what he would find in WA.

On the USA side in Washington, there is national park and/or legally designated wilderness right up to the border(where this guy was). Places where roads are not allowed. I am talking about the area of Church Mountain where this intrepid explorer was rescued.

On the Canadian side there are many places where you can drive on logging or other prmitive roads very near the border.
The Chilliwack drainage for example. On the USA side you have to hike through actual wilderness over 20 miles from the car through Hannegan Pass to get to the border.

On the Canadian side you can drive a car to Chillwack lake, then hike a little easy hike to the border.

I have climbed in that area in the Winter. It's a biatch. If this guy didn't have snow shoes or skis, you know he wished he did.

not originally, but i've made it my home for the past 13 years. Toronto's nice enough, but the wilderness is why i live here. Can't find "wild" anywhere within 5 hours drive of Toronto. Here I can see "wild" outside my office window and be in the middle of it within a 30 minute drive.

We had some neighbours who lived on Zero Ave (if you crashed your car off that road, you would be in the USA) and they said back in the old days, people would just throw garbage bags of dope across the border and someone on the other side would drive up and get them.

Well, there's no way you can just hope over the ditch/border around Aldergrove, B.C. these days. They have these freaky tower cameras every several hundred feet and some big, scary black American helicopter zooming around freaking the crap out of local residents. And God know what else they got going on for border security.

There is a reason bears hibernate in the winter in the Cascades. There isn't enough to eat. It is hard enough for them to fatten up during the non winter season.


You think you can forage better than a bear?

Ok, I am joking sorta.

For us , it's about staying alive a few days until you can be found. For the bear, it's a lifetime.

I bet it was just a little bit of pot. the searchers were just PO'ed that they had to go rescue somebody who was 100 yards away from the highway, but stoned out of his mind.

I remember that. There was one road in particular where the border barrier was just a guardrail. People were throwing sacks of weed over it all the time. Of course the Border Patrol guys would hang out and wait for the idiots to come pick it up.

Cheating_Darwinism: If you do it correctly by extracting the THC into a lipid (like butter) it takes very little, and you don't need high quality product. Best part about extraction is that you can toss in all types of plant matter that one would not normally smoke (stems, leaves, etc). It's a waste to use the primo stuff as a cooking ingredient.

I used to live with a guy that would take a quarter ounce and pan roast it without oil until it turned brown and all the THC was burned off because 'pot is heat activated.' Every time I tried to explain that he was just burning off the THC (and $50) he would rage out and yell that he knew what he was doing. Then he'd eat the brownies, lots of them, and not get high, and then get all depressed that his dealer sold him shiatty weed.

That always pissed me off.
