Diamonds Or Bud?

We all love cannabis. Otherwise, you wouldn’t be reading this and I wouldn’t be writing it. The plant helps a lot of us get through our daily grind, whether helping us eat, ease pain, laugh, sleep, or just deal with people in general. But most of us probably wouldn’t steal a $160,000 diamond from a UPS plane and trade it for $20 worth of bud… But Walter Earl Morrison, age 20, did just that and got caught, go figure.
 
 
Morrison was working to UPS while unloading planes in the cargo area of Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix, Arizona, when he stuffed one of the packages under his shirt. He believed that the package contained cash but instead, he discovered that the box held an extremely valuable hunk of diamond. Instead of buying a ton of cannabis, Morrison allegedly traded the single stoned (again, valued around $160,000) for $20 worth of cannabis. The quality of the cannabis purchased wasn’t stated in the report but we can assume that it was probably substandard and not nearly worth what the diamond was.
 
 
According to the owner of the House of Diamonds, Brent Taubman, any single stone worth more than $100,000 is a very sought after piece. Imagine even holding a single piece of geographical fragment that was worth such a staggering sum. Most stoners would be too afraid to even touch such an object but Morrison didn’t think so. The diamond was recovered from the person Morrison traded it to and returned to the original recipient. UPS fired Morrison and he is being charged with felony theft. 
 
 
If faced with such a choice, which option would you choose? The diamond worth enough to buy three brand new Mercedes plus a trip to Las Vegas for a weekend or maybe a gram of marijuana? Whatever you would choose theoretically, please be sure to avoid stealing $160,000 diamonds and trading them for things that are valued at far less.
