"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!"
...and now 15 minutes of words from our sponsors: Pfizer and Corrections Corp. of Amerika!

Crewmannumber6: Still waiting for the weird part

It never gets weird. But it sounds more intriguing in a headline than "please click my link, PLEEEEEEEASE!"

cgraves67: Self-submitted by the author?

Yeah, I can't tell if subby copied the headline or if headline writers are trying to make it easier for Farkers.

If no one claims it within 90 days, does he get to keep it?

Grapple: Snitches get stitches... he should have just had a big bonfire and shut up.

The technician found the weed. Im guessing its really his weed, but he came up with this story to prevent the technician from calling the cops on him.

FarkedOver: sandbar67: FarkedOver: are also considered natural hallucinogens,

You can consider marijuana a hallucinogen, but it's not

Not my words..... it's just how it's classified. Sorry. Don't shoot the messenger.

From the same people who classified cocaine as a narcotic?

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.

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.

Happy Hours: That man's a liar. I stashed $250,000 worth of weed in his back yard.

I put that envelope under the garbage.

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.
