South Carolina Police Chief Threatens Facebook User After Pro-Marijuana Comment
Category: News | Posted on Sat, November, 2nd 2013 by THCFinder
It’s been a wild week for police officers and marijuana comments on Facebook. I recently wrote about a Missouri police officer that inferred marijuana activists are ‘stupid welfare-sucking potheads who probably can’t read.’ If that wasn’t ridiculous enough, it appears now that a police chief in South Carolina issued a threat to a Facebook user because he suggested the police focus on real crime.
According to Raw Story:
A South Carolina police chief threatened a resident with possible arrest Thursday for making pro-legalization comments about marijuana in a Facebook post about a drug suspect’s arrest. Interim Police Chief Ruben Santiago announced on the Facebook page for the Columbia Police Department that officers had seized about $40,000 in marijuana from an apartment during a drug investigation.
Below is the screen shot of the Facebook post by the police, as well as the screen shot of the comment that resulted in the threat:
What is sad to me is not only did the police feel that this comment was appropriate, but it looks like five of their friends agree based upon the number of ‘likes’ the comment received. Brandon Whitmer didn’t say, ‘hey cops, I’m participating in criminal behavior.’ He was making a public policy statement suggesting that public resources would be better spent going after violent criminals instead of harmless marijuana consumers. The response by the police station was very unprofessional, and is clearly trying to intimidate Mr. Whitmer into giving up his First Amendment right to speak freely.

Why Texting Your Dealer Sucks
Category: Culture | Posted on Sat, November, 2nd 2013 by THCFinder
Texting a drug dealer is always a pain. Some are hard to get a hold of and other times, you just have a hard time figuring out what to say. Whatever your problem is, talking to a dealer via text can be a seriously frustrating endeavor. This list is ten of the most annoying situations when texting someone who has marijuana that you want.
- "Hey I got your number from FRIEND A. I'm FRIEND B."
Texting someone you've never met before is weird in the first place. Texting someone who you've never met that you're trying to buy bud from is even worse. It's best to meet these people before you text them if possible. Have a mutual friend introduce you. Meeting up with dealers that you don't know well can be extremely annoying (I had some punk 18-year-old continuously call me for days after I bought bud from him... It got to the point where I almost changed my number!!!)
- "Do you have fishing tackle?"
Talking in code makes absolutely no sense. It's tough to understand what people are referring to sometimes. While it may be smart to talk in code if you're worried someone will get your phone and read it but it's easier to just put a passcode on the phone instead. Talking in code can wind up being too confusing to even want to deal with. If being straightforward makes you feel weird, just ask the dealer if they're free to get coffee and then just meet them where ever. Keep it simple if you're going to talk in code. Making things complicated not only gets confusing but annoying.
- "Hey what's up?"
The first text that gets sent to a dealer is the most frustrating one. I don't know if I'm the only one that does this but I spend at least five minutes with my fingers above my phone's keyboard, trying to think of the best way to tell my dealer I need weed. Of course, coming right out and saying it isn't the best idea. You have to go through the formality of saying hello first.
- "Hey what's 3.5?"
Trying to establish the amount of bud that you need can be a very tricky maneuver if you're trying to be inconspicuous. Eighths, quarters, half ounces, etc are pretty obvious terms. I suppose that using the numbers makes the most sense, unless you and your dealer have worked out another system of amounts.
- Drug dealers don't work on normal people time
This is a proven fact that dealers do not work in the same time zone as the rest of us. They never get anywhere on time and "I'll be there in fifteen minutes" means that they won't show up until tomorrow night. Dealer time is also never convenient for the buyer and the only time they ever seem to be free is when you're busy.
- Where is the line between "annoying" and "I want some damn weed!"?
Since dealers don't work on our time, they also don't really answer their phones when they're needed. So how many times do you text a dealer before you're deemed annoying? Who knows. Sometimes, repeat texting is the only way for a dealer to pay attention to you.
