And budding Jonny Buddaseeds are actively planting pot in public all over the UK

Regarding Crime Syndicates: Albanian cannabis growers in a stand-off with the government are armed with rocket-propelled grenades, heavy mortars and machine guns

This summer, three years after gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson began his campaign to free Lisl, Colorado’s Supreme Court will rule on her appeal. Mark Seal joins Thompson in exposing the brutality, corruption, and arcane legal strategy which doomed an innocent young woman—and threatens every other American.

Under a new directive, the NYPD is arming all of their officers with spray paint to buff tags across the 5 boroughs. With instructions to photograph the mark, “spray a square around the tag and then fill it in” with black, red or white spray paint, even the cops think “this whole graffiti program is ridiculous.” Broken windows, baby.

gay-for-a-second

Two men being detained on a traffic violation in Bartlesville, Oklahoma shared an intimate moment in the back of a police cruiser earlier this week. With outstanding felony warrants and three eight balls of meth in his mouth, Timothy Povlick knew he had to do something drastic in order to conceal his speedy merchandise. His answer? Swallow the meth. Fortunately, his good buddy wouldn’t let him take the entire load himself, and the two agreed “We’re going to have to be gay for a second”. And “gay” they got. The two outlaws proceeded to kiss and transfer the baggies, unaware that their entire conversation and act was being recorded on a newly installed dashboard cam. Now charged with possession of methamphetamine and destruction of evidence, the tweakers had no clue that their brief exchange and advice, “Don’t Suck on em… swallow em homie” would be prepping them for a new life in the penitentiary.
