News / Re: french cops seize supposed "ecstasy", turns out to be haribo strawberries

Oh my God, such a liability!

I am always amazed at the caliber of person who ends up as a cop. A job as complicated and serious as law enforcement should have requirements analogous to the stringent reqs of the medical industry.

Low bars!

I have a friend who was arrested for possession of ecstasy, LSD, and methamphetamine because of melatonin pills in his pants pocket that tripped the field tests. He was in acute psychosis from some hallucinogen and running around the municipal building half-naked (shirt only, no pants) screaming at people. When the police found his pants, they discovered “pills containing LSD.”

I was serving grand jury earlier this year and a cop on the drug task force was giving testimony. At one point he mentioned “a quarter ounce” and the prosecutor asked him to clarify the weight in grams. The cop didn’t know. This cop also blew a 3-month wiretap investigation by pulling over a junkie who recognized him from another town and knew he had no business being in an unmarked police car a few towns over.

I am of the opinion that an open approach to clarification is very important. Places where addicts can get help. And a rethinking of the population is, I think, also good step in the right direction.

What state is this ?  I’m sort of on the lookout myself. I am planning on going back to school - already accepted, but I’m looking for any kind of help I can get I suppose.

my observation IRL, it seems, is that police are no longer jailing drug dealers, even 'traffickers'. People get arrested, and then not much more happens.  like they bust the person, take away whatever they have on them, and then drive them home.goddamn it's about time.

Wish I could say the time.  I’ve been to prison multiple times for drugs, hell most of my friends have.  I have a lot of friends who aren’t getting out of the feds OR state for a long time.

While sentencing AND earlier release options are getting better in my state, any dope case in the feds you are looking at 10 years minimum. For reference btw, if you know anyone who got indicted for drugs and somehow got out in 5 years (downward departure from the sentencing guidelines), they told.  Period.  End of story. The MAJORITY of people I know from doing time, are drug dealers.  Not to say that’s the majority of people in there, the number of sex offenders in Medium custody in some states is absurdly high but it’s not like I’d ever have anything to do with them anyway.

The feds are full of drug cases. There’s only so many things they regularly prosecute, so many things are simply only dealt with at the state level but drugs is at the top of their list.  It also seems to be a crap shoot whether they or the state charges you.  I’ve done all my time in the state system, but I have friends who did less and got caught with less who will be coming out of federal prison feet first.  Guess I’ll call myself lucky and stay out of trouble from now on.

yes, agreed, and yes agreed.
The main reason, from a purely legal standpoint, of why you don't wanna get indicted from state to federal, is because like 4 or 5 other English speaking countries, the USA follows Common Law, which is defined by judicial precedent as WELL as by legislative statute.  And somehow the way the surreal war on drugs story unfolded in the federal courts, the whole "drug addiction is a disease not a crime" aka, drug possession is required to charge someone with a drug crime, well it played out a bti differenty federally .

They can do historical cases and charge someone not with "Possession of x amount of class A substance" - "with intent to distribute" like normal, but they can use indirect evidence to charge someone with "Moved a total of 10 tonnes since we first began surveillance, 4 years ago"

The times that are changing have begun to change only JUST recently.  Some states have 'shooting galleries' now.  And the feds say "we'll just support whatever is decided on the state level".
There's decriminilization of hard drugs.

In my state there's a huge grant fund now, that is made exclusively available to those that have done time for non violent drug offences.  Can be ANY drug.  And the grant provides crap loads of resources to get seriously into the emerging cannabis industry.

It's like they're finally saying "ok yes we'll stop, and yes, we're sorry"


All of this is still in a small percentage of only the most cutting-edge(eye-roll) political areas.

ANd obviously covid catalyzed most of this.  Sure they don't like to admit this, but they do .

man, the prison system in the US really is beyond belief. That stories I hear (mostly here) are so fucked up. I really feel sorry for you guys, being busted for the most trivial shit and having a decent chunk of your life fucked up from having to do time.

I'll pour one out (and a few more!) for your homies

Rules / Re: RULES

Yo guys,

after the recent quite disturbing occurence with JF and his multiple accounts, I feel compelled to clarify a certain bit.

Technically, multiple accounts are against the rules, and for a good reason as the JF incident has shown.

However, if its for the purpose of maintaining privacy, if you want to post a neat writeup or experimental or such that you did, and you don't want it to be connected to your account:
in that case, it is not even frowned upon, but we actively encourage that.
Solely for the purpose of keeping your privacy.

I know that a good portion of you guys has double accounts, and thats alright, because you do not use them to disturb the community, to sow distrust and confuse our members.

I just wanted to clarify this, that this is a case by case decision.
And keep in mind... Joe and I can recognize multiple accounts very quickly ;)
That we allow it to run for a while doesn't mean we don't know.
For privacy= yes, good. For fun and simply annoying our people= no way.

In the latter case, expect your primary account to be also restricted, of course, case by case, most likely only temporary for a short time.
But if you used this to act like an ass like JF, don't expect it to be temporary, obviously.
