Subby, if you're going to submit a story, why not the original link instead of this stupid bunk that happens to include the original link?

regornam: Ow! That was my feelings!: 37lbs, $175,000, about $300/oz. Huh, yeah that math kinda works. Crazy.

If you're paying that much, time to find a new source. Prices have been in free-fall for 3 years now...


The prices you're paying in WA and what I pay in CO are generally not the same price folks pay in other parts of the country. I don't know the MJ market in Florida, but it's a non medical-MJ state and I wouldn't be surprised if they pay way more than $300/oz for top shelf.

moocifer: Or it was the DEA passing along information from various intelligence agencies that spy on Americans with no warrants or legal oversight and the cops simply making up an excuse once he pulled him over.


I used to work in law enforcement, and nearly every major bust with pot in the car, was a total accident.  Literally, we would pull over a car for a traffic offense, and it would have so much weed in the trunk, you could smell the stench, even without a dog.

My other experience with law enforcement agencies, is that the higher in authority you go up, the bigger deal they make about stuff.  Local cops would catch a guy with five pounds of pot, and there would be a small article on page eight of the paper about it.  State police busted a guy for a pound of pot, it would be on the front page of the local paper.  DEA catches a guy with a bag of weed, they hold a press conference to talk about how they just captured the next Pablo Escobar.

Hey ummm...*taps shoulder* you know it could just be a case of old fashioned DWB. The Feds have been doing this randomn shiat to us FOREVER. You read the article about the guy who got caught with 40 Kilos because of an "unsafe lane change", but you never hear about the other thousand stops where they searched my car because the tag came back as "unlisted" even though I had them transferred off of my Magnum the month before and I had my bill of sale and temp registration in my glove box.


/Sorry, it just happened a few weeks ago so it still pisses me off.

well at least you weren't in a pickup truck because they probably would have shot you thinking you were Christopher Dorner


Worse, I was in a Cadillac. You know the old formula:

Dreadlocks + nice car + "hip-hop clothes" = Guns and drugs

Smeggy Smurf: The caveat is if you get in a wreck without your seal belt on you are denied first responder medical care.  You made your decision, now die with it.


I'll do ya one better, any and all bad decisions should disqualify people from getting medical care then only like 50 people in America would qualify for it.

Is it just me, or does it seem like a good 50% of drug busts happen because of morons not obeying traffic laws?

destrip: Seat-belt laws are idiotic, too. This (a pretext for cops to stop and fark with you), not "your safety," is their main purpose, and is why cops are so eager to enforce them. They could care less about your safety. They just want arrest/ticket numbers.

Plus, they spawn asinine phrases such as "click it or ticket." I'd be less peeved if the propaganda mills simply broadcast the sound of nails scratching a chalkboard.


I believe that in some states (CO for example), the seat belt laws are considered "secondary enforcement", meaning you can't be pulled over only for that.  It can be tacked on as an additional ticket if you are pulled over for something else.

This being FARK, I'm sure I'll be corrected if I am wrong on this.
