I took a guy to the hospital today who was having pain from an injury due to a recent fall. He has vicodin prescribed to him but can't take it because his family hid it because he might get addicted, according to the massive television and radio commercial campaign going on right no, so....fark those assholes.

Here in Ohio the baggie the weed is in is now considered drug paraphernalia (4th degree misdemeanor). Possession of marijuana (or, as it is on my record from like 10 years ago, "possession of a controlled substance" which can be anything) up to 99 grams in the same container is a minor misdemeanor.

I wonder what would happen if you got caught with a couple of buds free-floating in your pocket? Would the police make you take them off so they could keep them as evidence?

I mean, I know that plastic baggies, if let loose upon the world, can be choking hazards for stray cats or whatever but it's weird that the actual drug itself is considered less of a charge than the container.

I wonder what would happen if the cops caught you with some weed rolled up in a Bob Marley poster?

Even without cop math that's a lot of weed.

Was he going to smoke the marijuana like a cigarette?

Marijuana is a gateway drug, and should be controlled as such.  If the government has to "pile on" the charges, then it is for the best if it saves innocent kids from being tempted into a world of ruin.

You don't necessarily have to fill the poster.

I wonder if the two pictures of Bob were album covers, between that and zippy bags I bet there are a lot of houses with paraphernalia.

...Arrest. Everyone!

I have no posters of Bob in my house. Not one. Guess I'm safe!

No shiat. In my kitchen, I've apparently got Pablo Escobar levels of paraphernalia.

What can I say? There was a sale on Ziplocks, and I need a place to keep my cheese (if you know what I mean).

My girlfriend was afraid to take morphine in the hospital because she was afraid of narcotics.

If there's anybody that's a low-risk to get addicted to opiates, it's somebody who is afraid to take them because of some commercials she saw...yet, here we are.

The guy's in enough trouble as it is, but calling pictures of Bob Marley "marijuana paraphernalia" is classic law-enforcement piling-on.

And lord help me, I have Peter Tosh CD's in my living room!

A Bob Marley poster isn't drug paraphernalia, but those Day-glo black light posters certainly are. You just can't appreciate them stone cold sober.
 
2013-03-02 07:54:29 PM
If pictures are going to start counting as drug paraphernalia, how long until the cops start counting pictures of you and your friends and paraphernalia after they have searched you? Are they automatically guilty? How many degrees does this go?

LOL
The kid's school is "litterless lunch" so we have all manner of containers and every fark-n size of zippy they make...  *protip* you may get a couple of weeks out of the freezer bags versus just a few days with the regular ones.

I have a Bob Marley sarong. I have been known to wear it and little else on certain camping trips involving Oregon Country Fair. Wait, I'm just incriminating myself here. Never mind.

If you don't think drugs have done good things for us, do me a favor, go home and take all your albums, tapes, cds...and burn them. Cause, you know what, all those musicians who made that great music that has enhanced your lives throughout the years...real farking high on drugs.

When my grandpa was [literally] on his death bed, he resisted taking pain meds " because I don't want to get addicted to...oh.  Right.  Not much chance of that.  So 1 every 4 hours and see how that goes?"

Gateway... right.  So it should only route outgoing packets and anything incoming that is related to an established connection... drop all new incoming connections.  Maybe forward all outgoing connections from a few certain addresses to a proxy or something.

I have Bob Marley music on my hard drive, just bought Ziplocs from Costco last week, and a postal scale in my home office.
You can also find Bic lighters and incense if you look around.
Should I just report to prison now?
 
2013-03-02 09:05:11 PM
Calling Bob Marley posters drug paraphenalia seems pretty reasonable to me.  I cant say I ever knew anyone who liked Bob Marley, other than pot heads. And this case certainly supports that idea.  They were after all growing large amounts of that crap.  If classifying Bob Marley posters at drug paraphenalia will get them more time then I am all for it.  The last thing we need is more druggies selling their poison in our neighborhoods.

First you are no mike lol... Second just think of the blunt you could roll with a Bob Marley poster...especially the long way.

".....Bob Marley, a marijuana user."
Well, not any more.
I almost never leave the house without an engraved picture of a pot farmer. Called himself George Washington. Guess I should watch my back around these cops.
 
2013-03-02 09:11:33 PM
So he buys by the pound and only sells 7 grams (quarter ounce) to 5 different people on a regular basis?

Does not compute
 
2013-03-02 09:11:49 PM
Hmmmm...

I have a bunch of quart and gallon size ziplock bags, a scale accurate to a tenth of a gram (and it has green residue on it), so I must be off to jail any time now.

Will they let me bring my coin collection into prison?

/I just have a small coin problem...

The paraphernalia charges are likely to run concurrently.  So no.  Just typical asshole cop crap.

I know wearing a Bob Marley t-shirt is just asking for it, but can they get you on a charge if they give you the shirt back when you leave the jail?  Maybe go that route.

I'll take "Ignorance on how narcotic and addiction works" for the family, combined with the fact that Pot does shiat for somatic pain by itself. It's the same idea as giving someone who has a long bone fracture a tylenol.

/the above happens far more often than you think.

Legally a stupid reason/defense but reality and life experience tell me that if you are white and have pics of Bob Marley around your home you smoke pot without question. If you are black it's still 90%. Of course I don't really believe that marijuana possession/use is important. I find it about as criminal as jaywalking so I think these cops should've been doing more important things but still if you are going to bother going after pot smokers, guys with Bob Marley posters are fair game.

Came here to say this, without intent to troll.

RTFA and you find the guy was busted with 25 plants and a scale.

How many straight people have 2 Bob Marley posters anyway? People who simply like reggae music but don't smoke weed?
 
2013-03-02 10:01:51 PM
I bought a bottle of 99% isopropyl alcohol and a box of Q-Tips with wooden sticks at the local pharmacy one day and got a very funny look from the lady at the counter.  I needed to clean the fans and circuit boards in my computers. Found out later that free-basers use that stuff. I'm sure the woman at the counter thought I was a drug addict. In her mind I have a much more interesting life.
