Dope dogs in a police car can smell the weed in your car even at highway speeds.

All the cops do is get behind people and wait for the dog to react, then pull the guy over for weaving or some crap.

Popped.

Why do we ban personal use pot? The worst potheads do is incriminate themselves in blindingly stupid yet harmless ways like this. And they seem to do it reasonably often, too. You'd think cops would be all for an easy catch.

That 1100lbs would have to be high grade to be worth 100,000$... also I'm curious what type of car has enough trunk space for 100lbs stored correctly.

If cops aren't allowed to use common sense like "he's driving like he's stoned, maybe he's holding" then they have to get creative. I'm fine with this.

Barakku: Why do we ban personal use pot? The worst potheads do is incriminate themselves in blindingly stupid yet harmless ways like this. And they seem to do it reasonably often, too. You'd think cops would be all for an easy catch.

FTFA: Drug Interdiction detectives saw the woman's car weaving and noted her speed at 40 miles-an-hour.

Doesn't sound totally harmless to me, though there may be some exaggeration in that account.

Also, A consent search was conducted and large bundles of marijuana in four garbage bags were found in the car's trunk.

If you have 100lbs of pot in your trunk, WHY would you give consent to be searched?

Never smoked pot, so I was always confused by this. I thought they packed it down tight into bricks, so wouldn't 100lbs fit into a duffel bag or two?

Yeah, but $100,000 worth wouldn't fit in the bed of a pick-up truck...

When will these transporters learn?

You NEVER take major highways when smuggling illicit cargoes. Always take the smaller routes. Less chance of a state trooper pulling you over. The average municipal cop isn't trained or equipped to hunt down pot cars.

Depends on if it's in bricks or not. Mexican stuff usually is in bricks and could fit easily in a trunk. If it's hydro or domestic it wouldn't be compressed. Most people prefer the uncompressed stuff.

I'm not sure about the math but if the pot was sold in $50 dollar 1 gram bags it could go for $100,000. That's assuming it's very good stuff. But like everything else there are wholesalers and middlemen to consider.

Fear of being tased, beaten, and charged with resisting arrest and assaulting an officer? All they have to do is write it on the police report, and you're guilty.

Then again, maybe the guy was just a dumbass.

Holy crap, i really hope you aren't paying fifty bucks for a gram. That's way, way too much regardless of how good it is

We had a guy get busted here not too long ago. Semi full of weed, he's driving down the interstate at 43mph when everyone else is doing 60/65 waiting until they clear the revenue mile (aka construction zone) to open it it. Poor Sanchez won't be going back to Mexico anytime soon.

The problem is that so many people drive like they're stoned that it doesn't really narrow the search down.

No, I'm not, but I've known people who have paid that much for hydro. They claim it's worth it. I don't know.

Usually it's in the $10 to $20 range.

By high grade do you mean really shiatty low grade?
 
2010-01-30 01:19:04 PM  
I'd say $100,000 is a very low estimate. I think it should be more like $300,000-$400,000.

1 pound = 453 grams

100 pounds = 45,300 grams = $100,000

$100,000/45,300 grams = $2.21 dollars per gram. Wow!

THIS

Normally the article would say eleventy billion dollars for 100 lbs. $1000 per pound is cheap ditch weed. Even in brick form you would have a hard time fitting it in the trunk of a car...although from the arrest picture she was most likely driving a huge Cadillac with a ginormas trunk.

Lets see, bring a tanker full of pot to the US or a small Cessna of cocaine for the same profit, this is why pot will never be legal there is just to much profit.

You have to a serious amount of weed for this to occur. I mean a few pounds at the minimum. A couple oz's in new air tight mason jar is not going to trigger the dog by simply driving down the road.

citation you say?

My own life. I have been smoking for over a decade and have never been busted or pulled over for suspicion of having weed.

I credit this to:

A) I NEVER smoke when I have my stash in the car or before getting into my car with it.

B) I drive the exact speed limit and I make sure all turn signals and front and rear lights are working properly when I have my stash in my car.

C) I don't freak out when I see a cop or two. I don't freak out when I see a cop behind me. You have to realize that it is just a coincidence and not because "they know man, they are on to me." Part of the reason I don't smoke and drive is because it greatly reduces paranoia.

D) I have all my insurance, registration and license info up to date and in good standing. You would be amazed how quickly you can get thru a traffic stop if you just have everything good to go. They tend not to ask very many questions if they don't have to.

E) I have been driving with my stash and literally had a cop pull up beside me on many occasions. You look them in eye, smile, nod and act like any other normal person. I have had K-9 units driving beside me or pull up next to me at a light and right there 8 feet away is the dog just stupidly looking at me.

Trust me, they can't smell a couple oz's in an unused mason jar that is packed away in a duffle bag. If they could, I would have been busted.

$1000/lb = cheap weed that isn't worth a shiat. It's the shiat they sell for $25/quarter.

If it was anything worth a damn, it would be $3000-4000/lb or more.

I don't really care about the weed, I'm just hoping to get people who drive like they're stoned off the road. It doesn't matter if it's weed, booze, cellphones or gross incompetance that is the excuse, bad drivers will cause accidents.

Yeah, because 1 car out of 100,000 is more likely to be caught on a major thoroughfare while 1 car out of 5,000 will get away everytime.

Your a idiat!

Drive on the main highway, do 5 miles over the speed limit at all times, maintain a farking lane and don't do anything stupid and you can carry a trunkload of dead hookers and blow without any hassle whatsoever.

OTOH drive on some Farm to Market Road and a cop is going to wonder what the hell you're doing there and you could have a whole half a gram of coke and you'll get busted.

You're right, youre not really good with the math. $1000 per pound works out to $2 per gram. Why does everyone think this value is high? If $50 per oz is high, I wanna live where you live.

Also, chances are if someones transporting 100 pounds over some long distance, my money says its the good stuff.

I've never heard of "raw marijuana" before and now I've see it mentioned in two articles on the same day. TFA and this one:

What the hell is "raw marijuana"?
