Denver Investigators Use Nasal Ranger Smelling Device To Find Marijuana Odors
Category: Odd | Posted on Wed, November, 13th 2013 by THCFinder
Have you seen someone using the device that is shown in the picture in the upper right hand corner of this article? If so, did you wonder what in the world is that person doing? Apparently, a person is walking around Denver, Colorado using a device similar to that one trying to hunt down marijuana odors. Yes, it’s a real job that someone does, and yes, there is a device that can give you superhero-like smelling abilities.
According to the Huffington Post:
In Denver, when a complaint is filed about marijuana odor in an area, the Department of Public Health’s Ben Siller is called out with his field olfactometer to sniff around and see if the law has been broken.
Siller, who has been investigating odor complaints for 26 years, uses the department’s Nasal Ranger device to determine how strong the odor is and if a violation has occurred — which it turns out is rare. The Denver Post reports that the odor has to reach a level of 8:1 or greater which can mean a fine of up to $2,000. But that hasn’t happened since 1994.
The fact that government money is being spent to fund a guy with a smelling device who is walking around looking for marijuana odors is kind of weird to me. I personally think that money could be better spent elsewhere. If a fine hasn’t been handed out since 1994, how do they justify keeping this position? How do you feel about it? If there was a ‘Nasal Ranger’ operating in your area, how would you react? Given, there hasn’t been a fine handed out in almost 20 years, but isn’t that reason enough to just get rid of the position? I look forward to your comments.

Florida Model Stabs Boyfriend After His Dog Ate Her Marijuana
Category: Odd | Posted on Wed, October, 23rd 2013 by THCFinder
A Florida model apparently decided that it was reasonable to stab her boyfriend after his dog at her marijuana, but she did not think it was a good enough idea to tell the judge. Instead, she went with a defense straight out of the musical Chicago: "and then he ran into my knife."
According to Kevin Wiggins, Shadae Scott, 26, kicked him out of the apartment after his dog atd her pot, but she had hidden his personal effects, so he could not leave. He says she started stabbing him with a pink pocketknife after he asked her where his computer was hidden.
According to Scott, Wiggins just kept walking into her knife as they argued. Wiggins sustained two cuts to the face and one to the hand.
In Scott's account, the fight was not about the drugs; instead, it was about their dinner plans. She says she pulled the knife to defend herself when he would not let her leave the apartment. Apparently she could do nothing about the fact that he walked his face into her knife.

Very important lesson for drug traffickers: Do not store your half-ton of weed in the backseat of your car.
A Brazilian drug smuggler did just that, police say, and the man was killed when he crashed into a tree while being chased by police ... because the 1,100 pounds of weed came barreling forward and crushed him against the steering wheel. The Daily Mail has the crazy pictures.
Federal police started the chase when the man didn't stop at a road block, Jalopnik reports, citing local media.
The chase went on for three miles before the as-yet-unidentified man lost control of his car; he was killed instantly.

A man is accused of trying to get marijuana into a Washington state jail by attaching it to an arrow he shot onto the roof.
A Whatcom County sheriff's employee saw the man step out of his pickup truck and use a bow to launch the arrow toward the jail's second-floor recreation area, but it missed its target.
Sheriff Bill Elfo says the man, identified as 36-year-old David Wayne Jordan, was arrested for investigation of introducing contraband into the jail, resisting arrest and obstructing law enforcement.
The Bellingham Herald reports Jordan served 20 days in the jail earlier this month for assault and resisting arrest.
The sheriff says Jordan told deputies he had been aiming at a squirrel, but he couldn't explain why he needed to attach marijuana to the arrow to go squirrel hunting.

Scuba diver tries to sneak 8 pounds of marijuana into U.S. via St. Clair River

MARINE CITY, Mich. (Detroit Free Press) -- A Canadian scuba diver on a late night swim got tangled up in a weedy mess: he was busted smuggling 8 pounds of marijuana into the United States in St. Clair River, Border Patrol announced today.
And the pot, which carried a street value of about $40,000, stayed dry.
The incident happened around 1 a.m. Monday when U.S. border agents were notified by the Saint Clair County Central Dispatch about a person swimming across the St. Clair River near Marine City. Dispatch had received a call from a citizen who spotted the swimmer.
Remote video surveillance cameras helped confirm the tip. A camera operator on Selfridge Air National Guard Base relayed to agents on the ground that the swimmer appeared to be towing a "dry bag" used by divers.
When the man in the scuba suit got out of the water near Marine City, Border Patrol agents arrested him. Then, they located a large, watertight PVC cylinder holding more than eight pounds of marijuana tied to a seawall ladder.
The swimmer has not yet been identified.
