The NFL Offseason Is Starting Out Well: Packers DT Letroy Guion Was Arrested With 357 Grams Of Weed & $190K In Cash
The officer who searched the truck also found more than $190,000 in one of the bags in which the marijuana was located, according to the police report. Both the currency and truck were seized and secured due to the amount of marijuana found.
According to the police report, Guion was “extremely uncooperative and hostile” while the truck was initially searched. The officer reported that Guion “kept coming toward the vehicle several times saying, ‘Hey man, my money is in there. Don’t let him take my money.'”
Guion then was secured in handcuffs.
The NFL players couldn’t even wait a whole week before getting into trouble. Last year’s offseason was a nightmare on a number of different levels, and it seems like the 2015 offseason will be just as exciting/depressing. In all honesty, where are you going with that much weed and that much money? I can maybe understand having one and not the other. If you just came from selling a bunch of weed you might have some cash on you, and if you just came from buying some weed you’d obviously have the weed on you. But 357 grams of weed AND $190K in cash? That’s outrageous. 357 grams is a lot of anything, never mind drugs. Maybe he doesn’t trust banks? I don’t know, but the rest of the ESPN article went on to say that Guion was currently in negotiations with the Packers on a long term deal. I have a feeling this story might delay that deal.
Fat Boy – Deputies found marijuana nestled in the stomach chub of a 450-pound Florida man known as “Fat Boy.”
The drug-running suspect and his driver were pulled over near Osteen on Friday for not wearing a seat belt.
The big passenger, Christopher Mitchell, 42, told the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office deputy he was too fat to wear a seatbelt, arrest records show.
Mitchell goes by “Biggie” as well, according to the Florida Department of Corrections’ website.
But the two men appeared nervous and the deputy called in a drug-sniffing dog that immediately picked up on cocaine in the front seat and traces of marijuana.
The deputies searched Mitchell and fount 23 grams of marijuana hidden under his fat.
Police also found a handgun in the middle console and $7,000 in cash stuffed in a tube sock.
First things first: how heavy is this guy’s head? I’m gonna say 150 pounds. Secondly, of course. Of course Florida drug dealers hide their drugs in their stomach fat. I understand this guy was 450 pounds and was nicknamed “fat boy”, but 23 grams of marijuana is a decent amount of weed. It’s not like he had a gram or two under there. That is an excessive amount of fat storage. It also makes me question a lot of things. Do other drug dealers do this? Am I smoking belly fat weed? Because if I am then I’m going to be really depressed. Not even angry; just extremely upset. Florida is slowly killing everything I enjoy, and I’m powerless to stop it. Also, work on your nickname game, Florida. You don’t nickname a fat guy “fat boy”. It’s poor taste.
(Source) “MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay — MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay (AP) — Uruguay’s drug czar says the country plans to sell legal marijuana for $1 per gram, though he’s given higher figures in the past.
A law already passed in the lower house of Congress and expected to pass in the Senate later this year would make Uruguay the first country in the world to license and enforce rules for the production, distribution and sale of marijuana for adult consumers.
The El Pais newspaper reported Sunday that drug chief Julio Calzada says marijuana sales should start in the second half of 2014 at a price of $1.
He says the idea isn’t to make money, but to wrench the market away from illegal dealers. Calzada said in August that the price would be around $2.5 per gram.
Sales are for locals only.”
Just when you count Uruguay out, they go and do something like this, and totally redeems themselves! I’m not sure why Uruguay is selling pot for $1 a gram but I also don’t care. They’re putting themselves back on the map. No longer will they only be known for soccer players whose names we can’t pronounce. They are the now the gold standard for legalizing marijuana. Congratulations Uruguay. We’re all proud of you.
(Source) “NASSAU, Bahamas — NASSAU, Bahamas (AP) — Comic actor Craig Robinson was detained Wednesday for drug possession as he tried to leave the Bahamas and was ordered to pay a fine, authorities said.
The actor best known for his role as Darryl Philbin on NBC’s “The Office” was stopped as he tried to board a plane in the capital, Nassau, and head back to the United States. Customs agents found a small amount of marijuana and pills deemed suspicious, said Supt. Stephen Dean of the Royal Bahamas Police Force.
“It was nothing major,” Dean said.
Robinson, who was in the Bahamas for a comedy show, was taken into custody and appeared before a magistrate, where he pleaded guilty to two counts of drug possession. Prosecutor Ercel Dorsett told the court that Robinson had a half gram of marijuana and 18 ecstasy pills.
The 41-year-old actor, who appeared calm in a shorts and T-shirt and was not accompanied by a lawyer, told the court he brought the drugs from the United States and did not know they were illegal in the Bahamas.
Magistrate Andrew Forbes ordered him to pay a $1,000 fine and directed that he be turned over to authorities and removed from the country. He could have faced four years in prison.
A publicist for Robinson, Nicole Chabot, declined to comment. Blair Berk, a Los Angeles lawyer who represented the actor after a previous drug arrest, also declined comment.
In June 2008, police in Culver City, California, arrested Robinson on suspicion of possessing MDMA, also known as ecstasy, and methamphetamine. The charges were later dismissed after he completed a diversion program.
Robinson is familiar to many for his portrayal of Philbin, a warehouse foreman on “The Office.” He has also appeared in movies such as the “Pineapple Express,” ”Zach and Miri Make a Porn,” and “Hot Tub Time Machine.”
Hey Craig we’re going to the Bahamas for a few days, think we should bring 18 ecstasy pills and pretend we’re from outer space? So many actors are nothing like the characters they play in movies or on TV, but I think Craig Robinson is exactly who we thought he was: a weed smoking, ecstasy dabbling funny son of a bitch. He just seems like a guy you’d wanna play fluffy fingers with.
EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Authorities discovered four pounds of marijuana after firefighters put out a blaze in an East Providence providing.
The Providence Journal (http://bit.ly/1aiZAg1 ) reports that the fire broke out around 11 a.m. Tuesday in a three-story building that houses a liquor store and apartments.
Police Lt. William Nebus says firefighters discovered growing lights used for marijuana and called police.
Police say while some residents of the building had medical marijuana cards, they are only allowed to have up to 12 plants and 2.5 ounces each.
A 22-year-old woman was arrested. Her name was not immediately released.
Talk about getting kicked while you’re down. “Hey lady your apartment was on fire. Good news is we put out the blaze. Bad news is we confiscated all your weed.” Fire is bad enough. But if there is one thing that can turn a bad situation around it’s a boat load of weed. Pop in a few funny movies, eat your face off. Now she just has to sit in jail thinking about her burnt apartment and the weed that could’ve been. Hell on Earth.
The big story today is marijuana is about to become that much closer to full legality. Not sure if that’s a real phrase but it is now. A 100 million dollar marijuana company is about to form in Washington state and I am going to buy stock pre-immediately (I’m killing it with new phrases today). Right now its being called ‘Big Marijuana’ which is an obvious spin off of ‘Big Tobacco’ (which is probably not the best marketing choice) but they plan to change it’s name as the company comes to fruition.
And the mastermind behind all this? A guy named Jamen Shively, no idea how to say that but I’m going to with Jammin’ because that’s both awesome and, when referred to the Bob Marley song, very appropriate. Oh and by the way he’s been endorsed by Vicente Fox, another awesome name, who happens to be an ex-Coca Cola exec; but then he got bored of heading up one of the worlds biggest Fortune 500 companies and decided to retire and become the president of Mexico. An obvious next step.
I’ve never been so sure that a company is going to experience so much success. Marijuana + Jamen + 100 mil. How can you go wrong? Except maybe your product is still mostly illegal. But who’s counting. I’m excited!
