Rhino_man: Nutsac_Jim: Jument: Somacandra: Has the dispensary and private smoking lounge just outside Wyoming on I-25 gone up yet?

Brilliant plan. People from Wyoming can drive there, park, go inside and get high, and then drive home and get busted for DUI.

Or, they could just go smoke enough to not be impaired and a threat to other drivers.

Dispensary, private smoking lounge  and cheap motel.

Problem solved.


also a pizza place or taco bell.

ArcadianRefugee: Danger Avoid Death: Prodigy AK: Danger Avoid Death: FarkleMatter: I wish people from Wyoming would stop moving to Colorado.  They suck.

And now you'll have the added bonus of people from Wyoming coming to Colorado, getting stoned, and forgetting how to get home.

Make you a deal... You stay the hell down there and we will stay the hell up here..

Q: Do you know how to tell when it is spring in Wyoming? A: All the license plates turn green.

Um, you're in Alaska and I'm in California. Why are we arguing?

This is Fark?


Oh, yeah. Well, carry on then. Oh, and your mother was a hamster and all that.

It gets worse. So, we have a 3 strike system for misdemeanor possession. 2 previous misdemeanor convictions any time in your life, anywhere in the county, and just got popped for your 3rd? That's a felony, up to 5 years in the pen.

But DWUI? Got to get your 4th in ten years before you reach the felony level, up to 7 years in the pen.

And don't speed in Wyoming either. 67 in a 65 with a little marijuana on yeh?  Dude got pulled over, busted, and because he had priors, the judge gave him all 5 years.

/to be fair, idiot got popped again for possession while out on bond.
//judge also did a sentence reduction when the dude got into in-patient treatment
///still, if you are going to be stupid enough to bring it up, don't speed, use your signal, and stop for signs/lights.

Individuals who have in their possession 3 ounces or less may be charged with a misdemeanor violation that carries a penalty of imprisonment for not more than 12 months, a fine of not more than $1,000.00 or a combination of both.

If found with an amount of marijuana over 3 ounces an individual will be charged with a felony which can result in imprisonment for not more than 5 years and/or a fine of not more than $10,000.00.


And this is just one of the things wrong with our so-called criminal justice system. A skosh over 3 ounces and you're a felon? 5 years in the hoosegow, career shot, permanent record, can't own a hunting rifle, and disenfranchisement? All for possession of a dried-up plant, just because some a$$holes say that "the pursuit of happiness" only applies to things they like to do. 3 ounces isn't a whole lot anyway, especially for someone that has to travel to another state to get the stuff and wants to stock up a few month's worth.

tigast: martid4: Your Hind Brain:
Sorry, too many marijuanas. How many marijuanas are there in an ounce anyways?

An ounce is about 2 joints if you're the cop turning over to evidence.  Or maybe just a joint if he's carrying multiple boxes of donuts.

1/8 oz. will get you about 10 joints unless you're Cheech or Chong.

/pot ignorance is pretty humorus


The point was cops won't turn it all in, ignorance is pretty humorous.

itcamefromschenectady:
People going exactly the speed limit are profiled as either drunk or drug mules depending on how much they are weaving, even white people. It's always best to keep up with traffic.

I keep hearing this, but I have yet to see any evidence.  I've been pulled over a few times, mostly for speeding.  I've never once been pulled over while I was under the legal speed limit.  I am white, but that doesn't mean the cops never hassle me, but I have never been hassled for driving the speed limit,

Aside from the fact that I have been stopped while under the limit and already said so in this thread, I used to live near a road that was mostly 45 mph except for a stretch that was completely straight and visible for a mile or two that was 25 mph for no apparent reason. In the morning people would blow by at 50 or 60 mph on that stretch. However, I worked third shift and late at night, there would be people crawling along at exactly the speed limit. I don't have ironclad evidence that those were drunks, but I certainly suspected it. There was a DUI checkpoint on that stretch at least once too.

Lol.  Idiots are now using it in the national parks and on the ski slopes.  Both of which are Federal property and under Federal law.

Ontos: Kevin72: Fun fact: If Wyoming were a city, it would be #31, just barely ahead of Albuquerque, Tucson, and Fresno. It goes without saying that more people would rather live in Detroit than Wyoming, even with Detroit dropping to now less than Charlotte.

Yes... Wyoming sucks.  Please don't visit and don't ever, ever go there, ever.

Thanks.


QTF. Especially if you're from California. You already shatted up Colorado in the 80's and now you're commuting from Cheyenne. Just stay home, the natives really don't like you plus it's ugly and barren like everybody else says.

I'm from Michigan. Detroit and suburbs even. Lived in California last 30 years and have made California a better place. I did not say anything bad about Wyoming except that less people choose to live there than Detroit which is a fact. Unless by choose you subtract all the natives and only count immigrants who chose to move to Detroit or Wyoming thenonly God and the NSA knows. By l-80 I just mean passing through on the way moving here ortraveling east overland.

Yeah sure Californians ruined Colorado. That's why Colorado's the envy of the nation. Lowest in obesity, highest in athleticism and the fount of freedom at ending marijuana insanity.

Churchill2004: Fubegra: Churchill2004: ArcadianRefugee: Can't think of where else I could have driven through (Roanoke, Va to Carbondale, Ill.). This was back in ... '99?

Probably Kentucky, but could have been somewhere in Virginia, too. Dry counties are, with a few marginal exceptions, pretty much a Southern thing (plus Kansas).

[foolocracy.com image 470x326]

There can be dry cities or even precincts within a city (Chicago itself has dry precincts).

I was also surprised few or none of those counties are in Tennessee. Do they only have dry cities?

Huh, that map appears to be in error. Here's the Wikipedia article map, which I presume is more up to date. Famously Lynchburg, TN, home of Jack Daniel's, is in a dry county.

[upload.wikimedia.org image 400x254]

The yellow ones on this map are mixed, so mostly wet counties that have dry municipalities within them, particularly in a few Northern states that allow cities or precincts to go dry but not entire counties.


And even that one is out of date now, too.  During the 2012 Elections, Randolph county went from totally dry to totally wet.  About the only reason I bothered voting in a county that was going to go Republican even if Jesus showed up and told them to do otherwise.

That'd be Randolph County, Alabama.  The furthest East county in Alabama that is red.

Tom_Slick: I got a star on my car and one on my chest,
A gun on my hip and the right to arrest
I'm the guy who's the boss on this highway
So watch out what you're doin' when you're drivin' my way
If you break the law, you'll hear from me, I know
I'm a-workin' for the state, I'm The Highway Patrol


What a total bad-ass JB is. Kudos.

Shrugs, is what it is. I find complaining about nature intruding on your lifestyle to be sad in a way. You get used to it.

Not once did I infer that my lifestyle was being intruded on. Was that somehow implied by my dislike of Wyoming stench?

I figured the mixed ones would mostly be the opposite; dry counties with exceptions made for certain businesses/clubs. I have you farkied as and Arkie. I figure you are familiar with Conway, which would be a perfect example.

I totally ready that as "...do not bring colored marijuana into wyoming."    Thought it was some new weird segregation thing.

Heaven forbid that they should let anything in to help people deal with the unrelenting boredom of being stuck in Wyoming but, then again, I suppose that's why they have meth up there.

I'm an advocate of marijuana legalization but have no problem prosecuting morons who think that because it's legal in one state it's OK to bring it into another state. This will just give the anti-legalization camp fuel for their fire.

bangmaid: Maybe they should set up a checkpoint like the one for "agriculiture" when you drive from Vegas to LA.
