I would like to smoke that $6250/oz weed!

/Oh wait, the article says it's $280/oz.
//I'd still smoke that.

Sounds about right, when will the po-po be depositing that 5lb into the evidence locker?

The first time I saw this headline meme it made me laugh 10 times. Really, those were 5 of the best laughs I ever had. Those 2 laughs will go down in history.

Today, I just marvel at how much those -2 laughs enriched my life. 

Give it a freaking rest, guys.

which contained sixty pounds of marijuana with an estimated street value of $270,000.00

so basically all we need to do to fix this fiscal cliff thing is ship a couple of rail cars of weed out to california?
 
2012-12-04 02:05:11 PM  
well that's headline of the year material right there, subby. NOT!!!

hahahaha get it? i humorously strung you along with a compliment and then reversed it by saying "not" at the end!! it's a hilarious new joke that i just thought of and you can start integrating into your fantastic link submissions!

Finally found the quote I wanted, from the great RAH:

"Mike, you want to discuss nature of humor. Are two types of jokes. One sort goes on being funny forever. Other sort is funny once. Second time it's dull. This joke is second sort. Use it once, you're a wit. Use twice, you're a halfwit."

"Geometrical progression?"

"Or worse."

I for one am pleased that they skipped over the driving out of lanes/broken headlight bullshiat and just straight out admitted they already knew where and when this shipment was headed.

It's funny, because the amount declared decreases each time, implying that the cops are taking it for their own use.

I think admins are looking for something that will increase traffic, 15 posts about the headline is 15 page views. I have a better approval rate for headlines with misspellings or grammatical mistakes, if you can a the grammar nazis going it is still page views.

Well if you buy a single ounce its not uncommon for it to be 250-360. Its based on quality since indoor yields less but higher quality and outdoor yields more but lower quality relatively. The more you buy the lower the price, and the same goes for your distance from the source (more middlemen drives the price up). It all depends on the market in your area.

Bullshiat. That might be true if it were pure cocaine. You're lucky to get a gram of cocaine in 3 grams of "cocaine" though. In any case, a quick google search tells me the LD50 for cocaine is 95.1 mg/kg. For a 100 pound girl (which I'm considering an extreme case) that comes out to about 4.3 grams of pure cocaine, and even then she isn't necessarily going to die.

In CO, $35 per 1/8th is top shelf price, and it's going to come down more. I doubt the stuff found in Georgia was worth that amount, after getting crushed and dried out in transport.

Of course I was simply relating that those prices can be accurate depending on the type and quality of the bud which varies greatly. One could easily obtain ditch weed for 70$ an ounce if you know the right people. The police will portray any bust in whatever manner looks best for them. If it was ditch weed it be worth under 10,000$ at best, but ditch weed usually moves in higher volumes then this. Ditch weed is good for one thing blunts (if one is into that sort of thing), but it will give you a bad headache for sure. But hey all the cool kids are smoking earl these days anyways.
