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.

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.

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

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

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

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?

You can also find Bic lighters and incense if you look around.
Should I just report to prison now?

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.

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?

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.

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.

I'm sure the woman at the counter thought I was a drug addict. In her mind I have a much more interesting life.

My mom got a morphine drip after her hysterectomy.  While she was recovering, every time I called her she'd tell me all about it, and how it was on a timer so no matter how much she pushed the button, it only worked every 20 minutes or whatever (pushing the button constantly while we were talking).

The bill came a couple months later, and she saw the itemized charges and couldn't figure out what all the "self-administered medication" at $40 a pop was.  She had no memory of the drip, at all, and didn't really believe me when I told her.

(FWIW, they gave her Vicodin when she left, and she only took one.)

My wife works in HR. She used to work for a chain store where she did hiring. One day she asked me if I knew what papraphernalia meant. I said "stuff".

She looks surprised and goes "oh". When I asked her why she reacted like that she reluctantly told me she passed on an applicant because he listed a paraphernalia charge and she thought it would be inappropriate to have a sex offender working in a store with so many children.

So now everytime I see a creepy looking guy with a pedo mustache I point him out and warn her to look out for the parapherniliac.

SundaesChild: Gyrfalcon: SundaesChild: This affirms my belief that my small collection of true crime nonfiction books will be used as evidence against me if anyone around me ever dies and I am wrongly accused of murder.

Christ, that's going to make me into the reincarnation of Mao, Stalin and Adolf Hitler. And possibly Osama bin Laden and Dick Cheney.

I am sure you have a ways to go on the Scale of Evil before you reach Dick Cheney.


Probably it would depend on the cop and/or prosecutor.

sethen320: Xenomech: I don't think the police understand what the word paraphernalia means.

My wife works in HR. She used to work for a chain store where she did hiring. One day she asked me if I knew what papraphernalia meant. I said "stuff".

She looks surprised and goes "oh". When I asked her why she reacted like that she reluctantly told me she passed on an applicant because he listed a paraphernalia charge and she thought it would be inappropriate to have a sex offender working in a store with so many children.

So now everytime I see a creepy looking guy with a pedo mustache I point him out and warn her to look out for the parapherniliac.

We also found this DVD copy of Mom and Dad Saved the World, and while it doesn't really look like him, we understand this to be a depiction of Jeffrey Jones the notorious registered child pornographer on the cover.

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.

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.




Actually, those that are afraid because of posters should stay, way the fark away, from it.

Reminds me of that guy down in Texas they executed for torching his house on Christmas Day and killing his two young daughters. The arson investigator's findings were later proved totally bogus and during trial the prosecutor made a big deal of the fact he had Def Leopard posters on the wall -- known devil worshipers.

I used to have a neighbor from Columbia who decorated his entire apartment with photos he cut out of various magazines he matted and framed himself just to save money on art. He'd go to the paper recycling bin at a nearby elementary school and grab stacks of old magazines; Vogue, National Geographic...anything with full page photos. It didn't look too bad, every wall in his house was covered with pictures. I never would have guessed he was getting the pics from magazines until one day I asked about one and he told me about his peculiar method of home decoration.

I can just imagine the mind fark of some dumb cop when they went in his house and saw Madonna, the Dos Equis guy and the Pandora's galaxy cluster in his living room.

Suckmaster Burstingfoam: Ima4nic8or: 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.

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?


I think both of you need to look up the definition of the word paraphernalia.  "equipment, apparatus, or furnishing used in or necessary for a particular activity"  It doesn't matter if 100% of all people that like Bob Marley are also raging potheads, a poster is in no way used for smoking pot and labeling a poster as drug paraphernalia is pants-on-head retarded.  I don't care if it's a poster with a picture of a giant pot leaf with the phrase "I love smoking pot" in large blocky letters on it, it's not actually used for smoking pot.

Yeah sure, if someone were desperate enough they could technically try using a piece of it to roll a joint, but if you're being that broad with the definition then almost anything in your house could be considered paraphernalia.  Got any empty soda/beer cans around?  Those can be used to make a pipe, so paraphernalia.  Any empty milk jugs or 2 liter bottles?  Gravity bongs.  Hell, I once saw a guy improvise a smoking device using a glass of water and tin foil.

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.


He was a huge moonshiner as well.

Fact: marijuana has no lethal or toxic dose in humans.
Therefore, it is not a poison.

If the people are told the same lies over and over again, they'll come to accept it as the truth. Yes, people are stupid.

I wouldn't call alcohol the perfect poison, but it's up there with the best of them.

I'm 59 (or will be soon) and I don't expect to see cannabis legalized in my lifetime. As I said before, humans are stupid and uncomprehending animals, afraid of change and unwilling to challenge authority. Until that changes, we'll be living in a Dark Ages for quite some time.

Even if legalized, it will be regulated, so they may still have a rather similar job to make sure that supplies are coming from legal sources.

We also live in a town with a lot of opioid junkies. My point is that she's very afraid of becoming addicted. She wouldn't. The minute she felt like she "needed" opioids she'd scare herself straight.
