Hanna's Rule: Only break ONE law at a time.

If you want to speed, don't carry weed.

If you carry weed, don't drive with expired plates, etc..

Gee thanks for reminding me - probably why I've smoked "dope" over 4 decades and have yet to be arrested.

let's see, northbound on i65... 30 lbs of pot... 40 mph...
It was my understanding there would be no math!!!

I completely forgot that Locke worked on a grow farm. Probably because that episode is so forgettable.

The K9 unit was named Rykr. I can't imagine the kind of douchebag that would name their dog Rykr.

I'll bet the dog's an asshole too.

im so paranoid when i have a tiny amount of pot i can not imagine having that much and being totally oblivious to whats going on around me...idiot
 
2009-11-14 05:55:36 PM  
Yeah. When the cop clocks you doing 60 mph over the speed limit, it's best not to be carrying 17lbs of pot...

/am I doing this right?

THIS! 12 lbs of weed will put you away for a lonnng time.

/I think so.
 
2009-11-14 06:12:12 PM

Technically the "past a cop" part isn't even needed. I mean the logic is pretty sound up to that point in the headline.

I love how they keep on saying "suspected marijuana". It is safe to say that its real weed. No body carries 30 pounds of oregano like that.
 
2009-11-14 06:19:54 PM  
I got pulled over with 3 lbs in my trunk when I was 19 for failing to signal at a turn, I was shiatting bricks. Wasn't paying attention to the rear view for a couple minutes, though I think the copper was probably behind the car behind me. You try to drive safe with weight like that, but a lot of these idiots drive like they do with no snuff on em. Ended up playing it off and skated without a ticket, but I was shaking for a couple minutes after that.

Pretty sad, when you see headlines like this, it's a goddamn plant. At least it's not that guy driving on the wrong side of the road with 100+ pounds of heroin, though.

If it weren't for these extroverts, the rest of us would have to be even more nondescript and law abiding.

*mechanically sound, underpowered, subcompact, import
*extra set of head/brake/parking lights in trunk
*obey all traffic laws and have all paperwork within easy reach

/some folks just don't know where they want to go, before arriving at a location they'd preferred to have avoided had they known that's where they were headed

FTFA: Fortner was arrested and charged with Dealing Marijuana Over Thirty Pounds, a Class C felony.

I'd like to point out, that he technically was only dealing 30 lb. Thus was not "dealing marijuana over thirty pounds" and should thus have the charges against him dropped.

You're an idiot.

If he had 30.0001 lbs - that would be over 30, yet would still be referred to as 30 lbs in the local paper.

Not everyone is as dim as you are.

man's a fool for driving around with 5 lbs. of pot like that

Hey.. no seeds, no stems, no stalk!
 
2009-11-14 06:52:13 PM  
Couldn't he have just played it cool and refused the search? I don't think speeding is probable cause to search a car. Maybe that's naive...

I haven't bought pot since the 80's...6 grand a pound? Really?

came here to comment on this.
 
2009-11-14 06:54:37 PM  
Yeah, so...I can't think of any way at all that ten pounds could be worth that much money. Like, even just selling as grams to really, really dumb college kids. Being RIDICULOUS, it still only gets to a little over a $100,000.

Exactly whose ass do these numbers come from?

95 MPH in a 55 MPH zone, non-valid license, rental car in someone else's name. 30# pot bagged & labeled with "brand names" in 3 duffle bags in the trunk.

There are special places for people that stupid.

Cops always monitor phone calls and they just wait for you to fark up to have an excuse to pull you over.

Then again, they don't need excuses, they just pull you over anyway and make up excuses along the way.

As pointed out in another thread, most stoners never exceed the Weed Limit: either 35 mph or 10 under the posted limit. This guy must have been doing meth or something equally speedy.

I remember when I used to smoke & drive (before moving to the Big City and ditching the wheels), at times I'd find myself going about 5 under and observe a cop in the rearview, probably running my plate number. I'd speed up to the posted limit and he'd lose interest eventually. In fact a cop acquaintance once told me that they are adept at spotting stoners by their sluggish driving habits.

Fortner did not have a valid driver's license and the car, which was a rental, was not rented in his name, police said.

Forget speeding - this is what got him busted.
 
2009-11-14 06:59:59 PM  
Ok, so there's 160 ounces of pot in 10 lbs. The police say a street value of $180,000. So that's $1125/ounce or $140 for an eighth. That stuff better make you levitate like Mr. Nice Guy in Half Baked.
 
2009-11-14 07:00:17 PM  
From the article: "Approximate street value is $180,000, according to a press release."

This is the first time I've EVER seen an accurate dollar value attributed to a busted drug shipment.

Comes out to $47 per eighth ounce.

I really doubt he actually planned to smoke 30 pounds of weed. That's like three months of straight smoking.

Between you and your 50 friends, maybe. I imagine a guy with dozens of pounds of marijuana could find some friends though.

Well, I was really trying to point out the tenacity for critical thinking and decision making tendencies exhibited by some people.

Yes, a friend of mine bought just two ounces in February, smokes every night and still has over an ounce left. Even if you smoked joints like cigarettes, it'd take a good long while before making even a dent in a stash that large.
