Will Sheriffs Babysit Your Marijuana? The Answer Is..
San Francisco Sheriff's deputies will keep a watchful eye on your pot stash while you go about your business in city buildings.
While those with medical marijuana cards are free to waltz into police headquarters, City Hall, or courthouses with their greenery untouched, it turns out recreational users of the herb will not be having much fun.
SF Weekly had noticed a man leaving his marijuana with deputies at the Hall of Justice and claiming he'd be back in 15 minutes. While this certainly looked like a pot-check, we were told by the city employees on duty that he never returned.
In fact, the department later noted that the unknown man pulled a variation of the trick every 18-year-old hoping to buy beer used when asked for ID. The old "I left it in the car" followed by a peel-out routine. The man in question told deputies he'd forgotten his medical marijuana card, left, and ran like hell.
For what it's worth, this is the Sheriff's Department's policy on toting drugs into a building:
No drugs are allowed in the building and those attempting to bring them in are subject to arrest. The only exception is for those individuals who are authorized to possess medical marijuana and have amounts which comply with their authorization.
It seems like there are no exceptions to "the only exception." Drag.

Chilean Miners Smoked Cannabis And Craved Sex Dolls While Underground
After more than two months underground, the men became so desperate for sex that they requested blow-up dolls be sent down to them, claimed New York Times writer Jonathan Franklin, author of the book 33 Men. However, the authorities denied this request, reportedly allowing families to send down porn, cigarettes, pills and dope instead, through the pipes used to ship supplies to the men.
Miner Samuel Avalos said in the book that he grew suspicious of the actions of his colleagues while they were underground. 'They were peeling away from the group in small cliques, wandering towards the bathroom, to smoke a joint. They never even offered me a toke,' he said. 'When you saw five of them headed up to the bathroom, you knew what they were doing.' Mr Franklin wrote: 'Having small amounts of drugs circulating in the community created more tension than it relieved.'
As well as a book detailing their experiences, the miners are likely to become even more famous if rumours Brad Pitt is interested in making a big-screen version of their story are true. The actor's production company, Plan B, is reportedly considering makinga movie about the ordeal of the Chilean men and their families.
