I'm pretty sure NYC cops can tell weed from heroine.

Weed = Schedule 1
Cocaine = Schedule 2

Why claim to be in possession of a more dangerous drug?

So is that calculated using cop math, or real street value?

Does anyone actually believe any of the "by some stupid coincidence we found this dude with a ton of drugs" stories since we found out that NSA has been passing illegally obtained information to other agencies and telling them to make up some alternative way the drugs were discovered? Sure, it's possible it was a noise complaint. It's also possible the guy used a cell phone or computer at some point in the last few months.

I coulda sworn there was 3,000 bags there before the crime lab guys started counting.

Also, you're an idiot if you think the DEA schedule is reflective or determinative of the how "dangerous" a drug is.

If you read the article, the bags were empty. He just had a bunch of heroin and 1948 bags, probably 10 boxes of 200 with 9 still sealed and one with 52 missing

Yeah, because there's no way to make more. Now that they got that 2 kilos, that's 2 kilos closer towards ridding the world of heroin. Because opium poppies are extinct. And pretty soon the war on drugs will be over, and there will be no drugs. Anywhere.

No, I wasn't being snarky. I'm glad that guy will be housed at taxpayer expense for the next five years, instead of paying his own bills by operating an unlicensed retail operation dealing illicit drugs. Now all of the guys he sold heroin to will have no choice but to get clean and get real jobs, volunteer at church, and join the National Guard!

Ahh.  I am willing to be honest and say I have lost people to ODing on dope so it is a tough issue for me to be black and white on.  I understand why you are saying (I don't know why you have to be a total dick about it from jump street) but the soluation is probably in the gray area.  I do like when I see that they seized a bunch of dope before it makes it to the street, sorry. My personal experiences changed my ability to be totally rational.

I am sure you have some snarky internet response for this too but you can save it.  I am not changing your mind and you arent changing mine, especially if you approach the conversation the way you have been.

I'm sorry about what happened to your friends, but overdoses would not occur at even a tiny fraction of the rate that they do now if our society simply acknowledged that drugs will never go away, and we spent our money making sure that people were educated about drugs, and making sure that the supply of drugs was regulated and that people who chose to use drugs could do it in a safe manner, with drugs of a verified constituency and purity and sterile instruments for administration.

Most overdoses are caused by people receiving drugs of unknown potency or different drugs altogether. Busting heroin dealers does nothing to address that problem. In fact, it aggravates it, because it forces users to change dealers and dealers to change suppliers. And as decades of data have shown, no amount of drug seizures has slowed the rate of drug consumption.

The war on drugs is a failure. It is a harm to society. I truly believe a century from now people will look back on the "War on Drugs" the same way people today look back on prohibition, and they'll think we were idiots to think such a thing could ever be successful.

I am not sure what the answer is or even what the problem is to be honest.  The truth is probably somewhere in the middle of what you suggested and what we have now.  Here is hoping whatever we do we get the people who need help the best help possible.  Cheers.

That Guy Jeff: Does anyone actually believe any of the "by some stupid coincidence we found this dude with a ton of drugs" stories since we found out that NSA has been passing illegally obtained information to other agencies and telling them to make up some alternative way the drugs were discovered? Sure, it's possible it was a noise complaint. It's also possible the guy used a cell phone or computer at some point in the last few months.


Even if it was that, the level of stupid as described (if that's what really happened) is amazing.

The number one rule of doing shiat like dealing heroin is don't attract any undue attention.

It was a farking noise complaint.  He could have put the pipe down before he answered the door.  He could have refused to allow them entry.

I dunno, but here's how I handled the last cop who knocked on my door due to a noise complaint.  I had turned the music off about 5 minutes before he showed up, so I did have that going for me.  The lights were all off too.    The cop rang the doorbell once and knocked.   Then after I didn't answer he rang it 6 times in quick succession.  I peered out of the blinds,

Seriously, WTF was he going to do?  Break down my door based on a report of loud music when it was clearly not loud anymore?

He left his business card with a strongly worded note on the back informing me that the fine for violating the noise ordnance was $1000.  Holy shiat - I looked it up online to confirm.  Yeah, be noisy and the fine is $1000 in this town.  Shiat.

Still, better than being busted for the 5 pounds of heroin that were in plain view on my coffee table.

Funny thing too - I was playing the music loud in retaliation of the neighbor who called the cops slamming doors and being loud in general.  I was getting sick of it.  Okay, you slam your door again?  That's Highway to Hell at full volume you biatch!  That's why the music was off when the cops showed up.  I figured I had already retaliated enough and was just waiting for the next shoe to drop.

gfid: be noisy and the fine is $1000 in this town.


Just for comparison, it's only $50 for being caught with an open container while you're driving.  And the last speeding ticket I got was about $100 for doing 60 in a 40.  It's only $75 to blow a red light if you're caught on camera.

Now, it may be just me, but I think running a red light is a hell of a lot more dangerous and threatens public safety way more than cranking up some music for 10 minutes.

And before you RLC haters reply, I see no evidence that they've shortened the timing of the yellow light on our intersections with red light cameras.  I go through them all the time and have never been busted.  I actually think they're a bit generous.  I've seen people go through those intersections who I thought should have been busted and yet the cameras didn't flash.

A friend of mine who just happens to make me very nervous whenever I am a passenger in his car has gotten 3 tickets from the RLC near where we live.

Man, you have and are a shiatty neighbor. When we threw a huge party and the cops got called, the next day we got a letter from our neighbor saying it was their visiting daughter that called the police, that they scolded her severely, and that's NOT how they treat their neighbors. And a $1,000 ticket for a noise? Christ, move already. You don't have neighbors you like and your government is burdensome. Take your business elsewhere.

Anywho, yeah, the number one rule in America is NEVER, EVER talk to a cop. If this isn't a case of parallel construction, this guy is dumb as... well, a pothead.
