HIGH DRIVER CALLS 911 TO REPORT HE'D BEEN SHOT IN DOUGLAS COUNTY; ACTUALLY BLEW A TIRE

Quote:
COTTAGE GROVE, Ore. Oregon State Police says it responded to a call from a driver reporting that he'd been shot, only to find that the man was high on marijuana and had blown a tire.

Troopers responded shortly before midnight on Sunday after a driver reported that he had been shot while driving along I-5 in northern Douglas County.

Quote:
During a search of the driver's vehicle, troopers found about 95 grams of marijuana, "marijuana items," and almost $30,000 in cash.
Whoops

That was only 3.4 ounces of pot....

The cops took the cash and charged him with money laundering.....


A total cash grab by police, another civil forfeiture deal where the cops keep your money seize property and you are guilty and have to prove otherwise to get anything back....


They could care less about the pot....

From the OP...

Quote:
"The cash was concealed in a package of diapers and the marijuana was located in the driver compartment of the vehicle," OSP said.
It "appears" the cash was meant to be not found; indicating its use/procurement in a crime...Maybe...

What I can't figure out is why no one seems to be concerned that this guy was stoned and driving around endangering others? Personally speaking, he should never be allowed to operator a motor vehicle on a public road for the rest of his miserable life. Lock him up and throw away the key.

I don't support the recreational use of marijuana without stringent, enforced laws, just as harsh, if not more so, as alcohol. Controlled medicinal use is one thing, but recreational needs to be treated as with an substance that can affect your judgement while in public, and especially while operating a vehicle or heavy equipment.

There was a reason we called it 'getting stupid' back in my teen years.

By that definition, there would appear to be a lot of recreational use by many of those in the MSM and amongst the progressives in Congress.

I'm surprised they didn't say the truth, that he actually had 95,000 milligrams of pot.

I remember back in the day it was common for us to buy a 1/4lb ( 4oz ) at a time. If a few of us were going in on it we would buy a Kilo which is over two lbs. or over 2 million milligrams.

And that was just for recreational use.

That's what we used to say too. In the military we called in an "Attitude adjustment"
