That is why you get guard alligators. No one will break into a house with guard alligators.

"Lawrence was charged with possession of cultivating marijuana, possession of more than 20 grams of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of three Bob Marley posters, possession of the entire series of Family Guy on DVD, possession of Prometheus on Blu-Ray, possession of two Skrillex bootleg concert recordings, possession of a Wii with one controller, possession of a stained futon, possession of Hot & Spicy Chex Mix and possession of an Arizona Cranberry Iced Tea."

Those don't sound like serious charges..

Naw, guys, subby is just kidding. In all honesty, if you're growing that much pot, you probably should call the police. They can protect you and make sure all your future sales are safely transacted.

Ditto if you have a Meth lab, but you should first call the department of health and safety (or your state's equivilent) to see if they collaborate with the local police department (it will vary by zip code, county, and even sometimes by block location, so make sure they double check the location for your specific address). I had a buddy who worked with the cops to make sure he had safely transacted sales, it cut down significantly on the deals he was slighted in; you just want to make sure the Dept. of H&S doesn't get involved, sometimes they can lay on steep fines or shut you down for producing in a residential zone.

It's only a crime if your caught.... Biker gangs get it right. You wouldn't think twice about stealing from them... right?

Not guilty, your honor. Those tapes were just left out in the sun too long.

Well, you CAN....just don't be too surprised at the outcome...

In maybe 20 years, this won't even be a news story beyond the home invasion.

He then gave police permission to search the house

Officer, I can say with absolute certainty than neither of the men are still hiding somewhere in the house, so why do you need to search my home exactly?

Have you ever walked into a house where there's a marijuana grow? You can tell almost immediately.

Number four: know you heard this before, never get high, on your own supply.


If you're going to smoke, just smoke. If you're going to sell, just sell. Do both, and you're eventually farked.

I am mildly amazed at how many people smoke pot. I mean, that makes it basically impossible to get/change a job, because pretty much every business requires a pre-employment piss test these days.

That's why I've never even tried it; I was too nerdy to smoke in high school, and I've been peeing in a cup ever since.

very very very very very very fortunately for me, this is not true :)

actually the only companies that really test are mil/gov, and big box store/burger flip/fastfood joints. for a tax break or insurance discounts i guess? to seem more legitimate or to weed out people quicker from their already fairly shiatty supply of folks willing to work at those places?

i have no idea. but i've worked for a couple "real adult job" companies over the past eight years and have never been pee tested. i've interviewed a ton as well, and it rarely comes up, even on the paperwork. now if you get injured at work well hell yeah, you're peeing. that is the only bummer about it really. fortunately for me, its tough to be gravely wounded in my office.

Its good to have no protection under the law because you free a plant.

I don't know about other states, but just about every company in Georgia tests for all jobs, because they get a 10 percent discount on their worker's comp insurance if they do, under the so-called Drug Free Workplace Act. Probably a state law.

PRO-tip: You probably shouldn't grow 110 marijuana plants in your spare bedroom, unless you have the place secured really well (bars on windows/doors, cameras, etc.). And don't farking tell anyone its there.

Good bosses warn you and give you time to get it out of your system, pass the test, then continue.

Yeah for excellent bosses.

I have seen ONE plant take up a bedroom! It had not been pulled but trimmed for years - the dude got off with an on-the-spot fine, because we have decriminalised pot and he had less than three plants :D

For all those worried about piss testing I present: Quick fix oasis-smokeshop.com

Used it multiple times, works perfectly.
Make sure you get the most current version.
A friend that works in a hazardous work environment keeps one in the glove box of his car, in case he has to make a trip to the local medical outlet place. He said if you ask to do the piss test first they usually have no problem with that, unless your injuries are life threatening and in that case your job is the least of your worries.

well since Gawker was blatantly plagiarizing the bulk of the article from an actual news network, they had to add "humor" to it in order to not get sued.

According to Mike Tyson, tigers work well too but the cops get a little nervous if/when they start mauling burglars. Personally I think that's the risk you take when you break into Mike Tyson's (or anyone's) house.

I'm guessing these might be state laws as in MN my personal experience has been mostly like jagarr's. Right to Work? More like Right to Be Your Boss's Property
