Idle 11

Employees at a Marietta, Ohio Goodwill store were surprised to find four bags of marijuana when they opened a donated water jug. According to police the gift that keep on giving had a street value of $1500. "If anybody would like to come in and claim this 'cooler,' which is probably an antique, we would love to have them come in and we'll be more than happy to try and get that cooler returned to them," Marietta Police Capt. Jeff Waite said.

I'd better go get my cooler.

That's some shitty looking weed. (1)

No red hairs, no crystals and it looks dry as hell. Sure it's green, but we get stuff like this all the time in the bay area. We call it "Pretindo" (sort of a combination of the words "Pretend" and "Indo"

Some of the shadier dope dealers will sell this crap to you for true chronic prices.

Generally around 95% of the pictures attached to these Idle stories are just randomly grabbed from the 'tubes and have nothing to do with the actual weed/prank/crime/loser in question.

I love when cops make up these bullshit "street prices".

4 bags of weed - lets assume they're ounces (most likely quarters or half quarters though).

Thats 375 bucks an ounce.

If you pay that much you are getting screwed.

Of course, having worked with police in the IT area, I know how the prices are calculated. They assume a joint is 1/4 of a gram, and a joint is worth 10 dollars, and they calculate from there.. So, working backwards you have 2 ounces and change, at a price of about 750 bucks an ounce!

Damn son! Hope you gettin bought dinner first!

OK, WEIRD.. THE CAPTCHA FOR THIS POST WAS "BLUNTS"

if you could take 15 seconds to RTFA it says it was almost a pound total, so thats more like 90$ an ounce

Actually that looked like sun leaf to me. It could be somebody's lame light-damaged excuse for bud though. Either way, looks like stuff I couldn't smoke if you paid me. Here in the ghetto, the tweakers would probably pay over $50 an ounce and swear it was worth it. morons.

Damn you Cali kids and your never-ending supplies of wünderweed. Here in the midwest you're lucky to get anything halfway fresh, forget designer-strain. And its not that there's no demand...

I guess you could say, the water in that jug will allow you to "fly high?"

Yes, we actually think drug dealers are that stupid.

Not.

He was almost certainly kidding.

I normally would agree and 99.9999% of people who deal with drugs (either consumers or sellers) are not nearly that stupid,

But there is that very small percentage that would be that stupid, watch a few episodes of Cops.... I mean I find myself yelling at the TV "ARE YOU THAT STUPID????" lol

I have seen several times where they have pulled people over for traffic stops and busted them for having a joint stuck behind there ear... or a bag of weed sitting on the console in plain sight.

I watched one episode where the guy actually called the police to complain that the guy ripped him off.. on a deal no less!!! lol he got arrested pretty much on the spot.

At any rate it does provide some funny TV though.
