Man gets arrested trying to buy Xbox 360 with weed, confirms approximately 72 stoner stereotypes

Sorry, drug law reform campaigners, but this guy has just done you a grand total of no favours whatsoever. Helping the "Hey, pot isn't that damaging" case exactly as much as a stoner corpse in a joint-originated house fire, Sean Evans of Magalia, California used his razor sharp robo-brain to try to buy an Xbox 360 using a big pile of marijuana. He got arrested, and was very probably the only one surprised. The only one in the world.

What a moron. 2 ozers for a 360? On Craigslist? Lol

It is apparent that this guy has a pre-existing common-sense deficiency. I smoke all the time, but when I read stories like this, I fucking cringe & weep for the rest of the pot community. While villainizing this is completely wrong, pointing out the stupidity of this guy for advertising such an endeavor is well within reason.

/facepalm

It's easier to continue the stereotype, perhaps we should post some of the other idiotic things that get posted on Craigslist?

mrv3212730d ago

Why is it ALWAYS that there's a pre-existing condition. Weed cannot cause a problem can it?

By that logic we should legalize bullet because people should have guns. and when gun crime goes up we'll say the pre-exisiting condition was people gettitng shot?

Will life be better or worse if weed where to be legalized?

@mrv

Your example is WAYYYY to extreme. What problems has weed shown to develop in adults? I don't care about the whole, it can cause development problems in Children. I didn't start until I was in my early 20's, so that isn't going to effect me.

thereapersson2730d ago (Edited 2730d ago )

What are you talking about? Legalize "bullet"? That is a bad example, because guns and bullets are already legal. And how do guns equate to marijuana? Marijuana doesn't kill people like guns do. As I stated, I do use marijuana. However, I am physically and mentally capable of knowing when it isn't a good idea to intoxicate myself. I do not smoke before and during my work shift, because you should never be under the influence of ANYTHING when doing anything that involves physical labor -- regardless of the actual effect the substance in question has on you.

That wasn't a very sensible analogy. Also, just because something is legal doesn't mean it's not dangerous. Alcohol is legal, yet people get killed or injured all the time in drunk driving accidents & alcohol-induced stupidity. People have the ability to choose whether or not they get behind the wheel when drunk, or put themselves in a situation where they are so inebriated that they cannot mentally handle a social situation. Those that fail to conduct themselves appropriately are dealt with in accordance with the law.

Cigarettes are also legal, and they have been proven to kill people (albeit slowly). Weed smoke contains a VERY small fraction of carcinogens compared to cigarette smoke. If you vaporize, you can save your lungs by not introducing burnt organic matter into your respiratory system.

Epic fail.

Funny thing is I know two different people IRL that have bought and sold a 360 for weed. Putting it up on Craigslist is just plain stupid.

must be crappy weed. THis guy is a moron. Why didnt he just sell the weed and then buy a 360 like a normal person would?

hoops2730d ago

LOL...And this is in the US so he will most likely get almost life in prison LOL

Chug2730d ago

Thats bullshit. Depending on his record, he'd most likely get 6 months to 2 yrs.

Ravenor2730d ago

Still to much for pot.

hoops2730d ago

Dude there are COUNTLESS AMERICANS getting busted for Weed possession and it being their first offense getting YEARS in prison.

Sorry dude. The United States are anal when it comes to Weed. The Government will lie about war to send troops, yet put people in prison for 10+ years for pot possession.

And that's the problem with this country. We have so many people jailed for stupid reasons like carrying an Oz. of weed, that we no longer have room for the actual criminals of society that deserve to be put in their place.

Chug2730d ago

I'm not saying the marijuana laws are justified, all I was saying was that for 2 oz the guy won't be getting life behind bars.

BTW, that dude that got 55 years for gun crimes, not just marijuana sales. http://www.themarijuanalawy...

He won't get tial.

Mocking the U.S regarding their law system is pretty stupid, since compared to 70% of countries it's pretty advanced.

sjaakiejj2730d ago

Any country where the death penalty is still available does not have an "advanced" law system if you ask me. US is still one of the countries with the highest number of unsolved crimes, and then there's this:
