Outrage: Cops Arrest Dude Trying To Buy Pot On Craigslist

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Michael Krebes, 31, put an ad on Craigslist Thursday looking to buy pot, WVIT-TV reported.

East Central Narcotics Task Force members answered the ad posing as drug dealers and set up a time and place to meet Krebes, police said. The police set up surveillance and when Krebes showed up, he was arrested." UPI


It`s pretty ridiculous for a dude to put an ad on Craigslist looking to buy pot, but it`s even more absurd that a narcotics task force answered the ad. Thousands of our tax dollars were wasted to entrap a solid, albeit dimwitted, citizen seeking to buy weed. This incident perfectly illustrated the folly of the "war on drugs."

In a perfect world an American would be able to buy marijuana online, at the Wal-mart pharmacy, and just about everywhere else.

In a perfect world the Keystone Kops narcotics squad would receive a kick in the arse instead of a commendation, and Krebs would be smoking a huge doobie that he bought on Craigslist, that would make Snoop Dogg green with envy.
