Erving is charged with distribution of imitation marijuana.


That's a crime?

So much awesomeness in this article.

Dealer: lemme mix oregano with... Rice Krispies for that authentic look.
Girl: lemme tell Mom I stole money and paid way too much for what turned out to be fake anyway
Mom: lemme call the cops and tell them my daughter bought seasoned breakfast instead of pot
Cops:... Everybody's under arrest. Not you, mom.

It's a crime against the buyer.  Caveat emptor.

Nope, they're trying to get him on the laws that make K2, Spice, etc., illegal.

Not rice krispies and oregano.

Maybe it was just a mix-up, and he intended to give them the ingredients for Italian Rice Krispey Treats that they could enjoy later on, after getting the munchies from the pot.

$210 for a half oz?

YOU'RE DOING IT WRONG.

Of course it is.  I know someone who was arrested for it when I was in highschool.

FYI, as I recall, and it probably varies by region, but selling a huge amount (like a pound) of fake drugs is a way worse charge than selling an ounce of fake drugs, and so on.  Not only can you get charged with fraud, there absolutely are laws that specifically prohibit selling fake illegal drugs.

Now, assuming that some cops have enough critical thinking skills to realize the "war on drugs" is utter bullshiat and that in-time MJ will be legal anywhere, what is the incentive to arrest and prosecute users?

Are they so brainwashed they think they are actually doing the right thing?
Is it because they have an undying loyalty to their chief encouraging them to go out and "make some busts"?
Do they get some kind of huge rush from bullying, tormenting and ruining young people's and their friends and family's lives forever?
Do they think of how much taxpayer money they are throwing away?
Are they so emotionally attached their precious laws that they take it personally when they see anyone break them?
What is  the source of this cognitive dissonance ?

Perhaps this explains it..

And this forum post on officer.com presents it like I remember having read about it years ago.  In some places, if you sold five ounces of oregano masquerading as pot, you would get charged the exact same way as selling five ounces of pot.

Selling fake drugs is a crime itself, not even counting fraud.

Might as well sell the real deal if you can be charged with same crime anyhow. 

What happens if you sell "special" brownies that are not special in the way people think?

/ War on Oregano is dumber than war on drugs.

It was at least a decade ago when I saw an episode of Cops where a guy was arrested for trying to sell bits of soap as crack. The idea being that selling drugs is illegal. Determining the quality of the product comes after.

If you can establish "We vs. Them" in the human mind, you can obtain fantastic sociopathic behavior.

I don't understand that.   "The girl is charged with a drug offense." What exactly is the offense when she never got any actual drugs?  Or did I miss something (which is entirely possible)?

No, I think they were all arrested for extreme stupidity and wasting the police's time.  I'm OK with that.

The incentive is its their job.  Cops are charged with enforcing the law as it exists now.  They don't get to enforce the law as it one day might be.  Of COURSE cops realize that the War on Drugs is nuts.  But they don't get to make the law, that's up to the elected officials, and cops don't get to pick and choose which laws to enforce, setting aside things like discretion on parking tickets.  Also there is a certain reluctance to abandon a policy, however bad, that you and your friends have risked life and limb for (sometimes losing both.)  Yeah, marijuana (and in a rational world, other drugs) will probably be legalized at some point.  But would you like to be the officer or legislator who has to tell a narco squad officer confined to a wheelchair or the widow and kids of some dead DEA agent why the thing those bled to take off the streets yesterday is just fine today?  These issues aren't as easy as some people make them out to be, and that some of the factors involved are emotional doesn't make them any less real.

In any event, cops get caught in the middle of a lot of crap generated by politicians, lawyers and others and then have to apply rules that fill tens of thousands of pages the best they can on the streets, sometimes in split seconds.

Sounds like the same crime of intent used to prosecute guys who try to pick up fake underage girls in the stings on TV.

Where's all the links to "man calls police to tell them someone stole his meth"...etc.

stupidity runs strong in that family
