This weed has lost its owner

This weed has lost its owner

The best police department Facebook post ever?

Texas isn’t called “The Friendship State” for nothing. In the Lone Star State, even a lost dime bag is treated with the utmost care and neighborly compassion.

Eager to get to the bottom of the case of the lost weed, Copperas Cove Police Department posted the following on their official Facebook page yesterday.

Copperas Cove has about 33,000 residents and is nestled in the Texas Hill Country.

Unlike Washington, D.C., Colorado and other smokey locals, marijuana is not legal for consumption, medicinal use, possession, cooking, inhaling, growing or any other use, in the state of Texas.

The conversation between the officer receiving the lost property and the concerned citizen looking to reunite the lonely ganja with its rightful owner? Oh to have been a fly on the wall…

I guarantee they’re going to get more than one call claiming ownership. Stoners aren’t the sharpest knives in the drawer.

    When I was a cop in Hawaii, one time a call came over the radio that a woman wanted an officer right away. Someone had stolen her meth pipe.

    True story. No kidding.

Oh noes! Marijuana, the evil gateway drug! But snarfing down six fingers of scotch, or a bottle of wine every night is OK. Or sucking down a pack of smokes every day. Or jacking your kid up on psychotropics because the teacher says he’s a little too energetic….that is all cool, right? Just say no!

    Hi, Paul! I don’t think you’re supposed to drink the bong water! I know, right?!
    Hope you’re feeling better this morning!

    Marijuana use shows up in brain scans as a toxicity effect.

    If you are an adult, I really, truly don’t care if you use it, so long as you stay out of your car and off the streets. However, I live in California, where the pot dispensaries pretend to be distributing marijuana for medical purposes, but make all their profit by selling in the high schools.

    But, stoners will deny the truth, every time.

      Well I hope you’re not referring to me as the stoner, and it’s not readily evident what “truth” you’re referring to in your posting.

      I don’t smoke it, and I certainly wouldn’t drink bong water. Thanks a lot Amy, just reading that made me throw up in my mouth a little bit. You southern ladies can be so genteel sometimes.

      And of course it has a toxicity effect, just like all the other drugs I mentioned. Is childhood drug use bad? Sure, just say no! But this simplistic idea that we can just declare something illegal and it goes away is laughable. All it does is create a black market opportunity for something that is no more harmful than many drugs used every day by tens of millions of Americans (maybe hundreds).

      Big pharma uses the right-wingers as their version of the useful idiots in this debate while they make a killing on black-market oxycodone and all the “good” drugs being pumped into our children every day.

      Force-feeding hypocrisy to smart children is most certainly NOT an effective way to convince them to not do something.

        Hypocrisy is the tribute vice pays to virtue. It also frequently comes about as the result of experience. Kids also don’t necessarily respect an adult that never used something but calls it bad. You have to convince them not to be stupid by every means at your disposal.

Hmmmmm, looks good! But I’ll pass on taking ownership of it 🙂

It’s just some of that ragged-ass Corpus Kush. Who’d want it?

Anybody else notice ads for drugs showing up on this page? Ahhh, the irony.

    I believe it is tailored to your viewing/search history. All of my ads show pathology texts, not drugs.
