Still probably better than telling the cop that it's to avoid getting ripped off when selling weed.

He wanted $100 for 3g's?  Well he deserves to be in jail for that.

Nothing good ever starts off with "In retrospect..."

"In retrospect, lighting the match was my first mistake.  But I was only trying to retrieve the gerbil."

"I could smell both the sweet, raw smell of fresh marijuana as well as the burnt, musty smell of burnt marijuana."

Why do I picture the cop with a glazed smile on his face while saying this?

Good. I'm not the only one, then.

Damn, that article made me want to smoke some weed.  Guess I know what I will be doing in 6 hours.

Along with requisite bag of cheetos.

$100 for 3 g's = rip off!

Having worked in academic and industry laboratories for 15 years, I can tell you the most stolen items are analytical balances.  We had to lock them down to cabinets and marble countertops more often than computers, and they still got stolen.

They even took the standards.  What kind of sick fark takes the standards to calibrate the balance?!

Obviously it was someone who already had a balance. Duh.

This headline gives me a very strong vision of a Far Side cartoon with it as its caption.

I'm less sure what the picture should be.

Mrs Clam is a serious knitter and I wanted to buy her a digital scale for weighing yarn, because that's a quick way to know if you have enough to finish a project. I just wanted a small one that would display down to .01 grams and all the ones I looked at online kept mentioning how "discrete" they were. There was even one designed to hide in a CD case.

As a defense attorney I hear this one all the time. It's the number one excuse when caught with scales, and really it's the only excuse you've got if weed is present because the alternative is a distribution charge and they know it.

//you'll catch the distribution charge anyway

"Yeah, I'm a pretty big health nut.  Went paleo last year, discovered an even better version of the diet six months in, had to get this to make sure I'm getting the right portions in my recipes."

Or, if you're stoned,

" . . . Yeah, I just wanna make sure I'm not getting ripped off when I buy."
'When you buy what?'
*the brain begins a furious struggle to free itself from the quicksand of THC, knowing the answer is crucial*
" . . . . . . . . . . Weed."
 
2013-02-05 01:32:28 PM
BUT, better than either of those alternatives, you COULD always say:

"I don't care to answer that question at this time."

Who the hell uses a scale?  What are you going to do, whine to your dealer later when it's short?

Just take a real close look at the goods, give it a sniff, consider the price, and ask yourself if you want it for what it is.

Only a dealer uses a scale.

/wait, wut..

I have a digital scale in my car, so I'm really getting a kick...

That green stuff on the scale? Copper residue!

sirgrim: Flour. It's always for measuring flour.


I once role-played a drug dealer who got pulled over by a cop and had to explain why I had $20,000, a digital scale, and a small gun store worth of pistols in the trunk of my car.
I explained that I didn't believe in banks because they screw over their customers and I buy everything thing in cash because the government is secretly tracking you when you use your credit card.
The scale was there because I work at home as a baker and making a proper brioche dough is tough when you're not precise.
And the guns, well, since I'm highly successful as a baker, I've bought a brand new car, rented a nice apartment, and bought the appropriate electronics and fancy stuff for personal enjoyment.  The guns are there to protect myself from the "real" criminals.
I did this with a straight face.  The law school professor started to crack up as soon as I opened my mouth to give excuses.
Would it work in real life?  Stranger things have happened.

If you own a precision scale and the cops find it, they will ask you what it's used for.

It's on you to think of a plausible story ahead of time.  And best if you have some kind of physical evidence to back that story up.

Humans can't think worth a damn in emergencies, so it's best to be prepared.

Or just keep your mouth shut. If you have drugs on you you're already farked and if you don't there's no reason to care what a cop thinks.

To each his own.  Good luck.
