(Irish Independent)   Lawyer for man accused of selling cannabis takes the novel approach of suggesting its worth to be only €50 and not the €14,000 claimed by the cops because it was homegrown and 'useless'. Suspended sentence achieved   (independent.ie) divider line

So much stupid and so many lies in this article, on both sides.

Well as Keith Richards once said, "spend a day with me, your Honor."

When I got busted growing a seed crop trying to preserve about 50 years combined of breeding different indicas and sativas and hybrids the cops report made it look like it was this giant criminal org. For 80 plants , mostly unsexed. Those 50 years went down the tubes and can never be replaced.
So, good on him .

Reminded me of the guy who got off because lab test showed his weed was such low quality, no one could get high off it.

BRB, starting a drug cartel in Ireland because apparently the cops and competition are just that stupid.

That cannabis was enough to kill a small town 457 times.

Huh? 700g is a little over a pound and half. (25 ounces)

Weed sells for €560 an ounce in Ireland? ($635)

That better be the best weed ever. The recreational shops in my state top off at $420 (heh) after the 20% taxes.

That's just what we'd expect from a Farker!

In case folks are wondering why the value is important, under Irish law, if the value of the pot was more than €13,000 then there is a minimum 10 year sentence.

Anyone want to hear about the time in college that my roommate dried out about thirty pounds of hemp in the oven, thinking it might have had a bit of THC?

/welp. that's the whole story.
//aight there's a bit more: he got shunned at some farmbros' barrel party later that evening for 'smelling like weed'
///it's ok to get 8 OWIs if you're a farmer though

Place near me does have a strain that goes for about $560 an ounce. It is definitely their most expensive, premium stuff

When I was in high school a cop who also drove school bus hit a parked car in the student parking lot. It was parked legally, totally within the boundaries. You'd have thought the kid was actively driving the car, cosplaying Twisted Metal when the collision occurred.

Actually, never mind. My math sucks. Damn, why is it so much more expensive here???

Seems to be $150 an ounce before tax in Denver lately, and the good shops almost always have something solid on sale for $100 an ounce. So well under $150 after tax for high quality, if you're willing to buy whatever is on sale. Or a bit under $200 otherwise.

Police: "Your honor, we confiscated $14,0000 of marijuana"
Lawyer: "Your honor. My client's weed sucks"
Judge: "Motion sustained. This is crappy dirt weed"

Maybe I'm just old and easily farked up, but I just purchased a dozen Delta 8 25 mg edibles, a half dose of which will pleasure me very nicely for under $40.

That's €20/gramme. For that much I expect a full meal and a laser Pink Floyd show thrown in free of charge.

He gave a destruction order for the drugs and imposed a €300 fine for the possession of drugs charge with three months to pay.

"I'm just complying with the law, man"

We used to call that "practice grass".
 
2021-10-21 11:03:35 PM  
So that comes out to about $670 an ounce in cop math.

This guy would have to be the Norman Borlaug of weed.

He got ahold of a hefty bag of trim and was too lazy to bother making it into hash? Or was it just so schwaggy that even the hash would be worthless?

Please do.

Then you will find people who are ruthless enough to keep the provos out of the drugs trade.

I haven't smoked in years, but when I did it was €160 an oz.

I think I pay too much at $100 an oz from a dispensary. Good stuff too.

So does their law criminalize it based on the dollar amount (err ... euro amount), not based on the weight?  That seems like a weird law considering that prices of things change.

But the free-market price of something is what a willing and knowledgeable buyer would pay to buy something from a willing and knowledgeable seller.  So if they really agreed on 50, then there's your free market price.

Homegrown is never useless. If my homegrown is "useless" it gets made into cannabutter which is then used for baking in all senses of the word.
