700 pounds. That’s quite a bit of pot by anyone’s measurements. That’s what cops found when they pulled over a septic tanker truck after noticing the license was invalid. After stopping the vehicle, the cop also discovered the commercial markings on the truck were invalid. Now come on, you’re driving 700 pounds of pot down a thoroughfare that is notorious for drug running, where the police patrol looking for the very shit you’re doing, make sure everything is in order. Valid license. Valid markings. You know, don’t do anything that will draw the attention of the very people who can and will bust your ass.
When the cop started poking around a little bit, he got more than he bargained – floaters. We’re not talking the normal twig that hangs around after the toilet’s flushed. We’re talking bricks of pot nestled amid all the human waste in the tank. Let this be a lesson to all the pot smokers reading this: if your pot tastes a little funny, flash back to the old Cheech and Chong scene in “Up In Smoke” where the two are smoking a dogshit joint. Chances are…well, you know where I’m going. Good luck with that.
The idiot, 24-year-old Leonard Salcido, was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana, possession of marijuana for sale and transportation of marijuana. Around $409,000 worth: street value. That’s a shitload of smelly pot. But I will hand it to Leonard, had his super secret hiding place not been so disgustingly gross, he’d almost win an award for resourcefullness. Almost. Hmmm. I wonder if he shit a brick when he saw the cherries flashing behind him…
