VOTE : Dumbest Drug Dealer of The Week?
In case you missed it this week, we had two amazingly dumb drug dealers get busted in a very public fashion. In one corner, we have the Weed Van, run by couple from Alabama. They thought it would be okay to drive around the country and cross multiple state lines with over 5,000 grams of cannabis products in a van. (Federal schedule 1 drug according to the DEA, illegal to cross a state line with it as one of the many offenses) Did they get caught speeding? Tail light broken? Nope, they basically painted cannabis leafs all over their van and put their website and phone number on the van as well.
As reported at AL.com here:
A Birmingham woman was among two people busted in Chicago in a “Weed World” van over the weekend with nearly $98,000 worth of marijuana, authorities said.
When they arrived on the scene, they found Moss with an open Coors Light, according to news reports. Police said Grigss had a gun, and there was more than 5,000 grams inside the Weed World van.
Weed World Candies is part of a political movement to help fight for marijuana legalization. The lollipops are marketed and sold in vans across country. The candy sold from the vans usually contains no THC, but the advertising on the vans depicts cannabis plants next to lollipops, suggesting a cannabis flavor or the possibility of intoxication after eating the lollipops.
According to the company’s website, “We tour the country in a fleet of “loud” vehicles promoting the legalization and decriminalization of marijuana. Our product strains include Bubble Kush, O.G Kush, Strawberry Cough, White Widow, SkyWalker Kush, Purple Urkle, and A.K 47 to name a few.”
In the other corner, we have a drug runners boat breaking down so he called the Coast Guard for help. The problem was that he forget he had 1,200 lbs of cannabis in his storage on the boat when the Coast Guard showed up to give him a tow. Tell us in the comments section which one pulled the biggest bone headed move of the week.
As reported by the San Diego Union Journal Here:
Boaters carrying big pot load call Coast Guard for help — and then get arrested.
An alleged drug trafficker called the San Diego Coast Guard for help with a dead boat battery — and the assistance received was probably not what the suspected smugglers wanted.
The Coast Guard got a radio distress call from a power boat in international waters about 29 miles off Point Loma on Sunday morning.
When the San Diego-based patrol boat Sea Otter arrived to help, the Coast Guard boarding team found 1,200 pounds of marijuana below the small boat’s deck.
VOTE : Which one was dumber?
How about the quote from the Coast Guard taking full credit for their amazing detective work paying off. Remember, the guy called them to come to his boat while he had 1,200 lbs of cannabis on board.
“I am extremely proud of the hard work and diligence of the crew,” said Senior Chief Petty Officer Justin Eaton, the Sea Otter’s officer in charge, in a news release. “Working together with multiple Coast Guard assets we were able to make another seizure and slow down the flow of illegal drugs into America.”
