He might look rather pleased with himself in this picture - but it's likely he regrets posing for this snap now, reports the Mail Online, UK. For when police raided the home of drug dealer Darren Ellis, 35, they found this photograph of him holding up his stash of cannabis.
Also, in stupidity-related news, the Herald Sun, Australia, reports two women are due in court today on cannabis possession charges after one of them repeatedly set off a metal detector at an airport in New Zealand, allegedly leading to the discovery of foil-wrapped cannabis in her bra.
Talk about stupid: The woman, 52, had 50g of the drug in 28 individually wrapped packages in her underwear, police told The Southland Times.
Not to be outdone, however, one father-of-three growing cannabis worth almost £9,000 in his attic, had bought the equipment with a £750 crisis loan meant for furniture, a court heard. The UKs Lancashire Telegraph reports, Terence Graham, 30, who is on benefits, had 12 plants and a hydroponic system in the loft space when police raided his home in New Market Street, Colne, last September.
Yet, cannabis lovers, Im told, arent stupid. Theyre just misunderstood.
The hard medical research informs us that brain issues and cannabis love to walk hand in hand, unfortunately.

Death penalty for drug dealers and confiscate all wealth associated with users.
Are you willing to do so when a barrel or more are pointing back?
I think a majority of thinking Americans see the eradication of meth, heroine and the like as worthy endeavors at the barrel of a gun.
But it's darn certain that a majority of thinking Americans do not support the eradication of pot at the barrel of a gun.
Therefore, you'd have to gather up your own private team and "take a shot at it".
The title could be the entire article. Have you ever known a smart pot-head? Not coffee-shop ranting smart, but functionally smart.
I would sooner support the death penalty for those who would attempt to "confiscate all wealth associated with users".
I know a bunch of them. Lots.
They built and now maintain the internet. They likely built the building you're sitting in right now...to include electrical and plumbing.
They probably built the car you're gonna drive to Home Depot tomorrow.
I’ve already seen the results of so called social drug use and we see how well it spreads in Mexico, Afghanistan and so forth.
Jail the dealer. Eventually give them the death penalty and they will stop aiming at our country for nimrods who want to do drugs.
Yes, confiscate the assets of recreational drug users useless it is for a cancer or some such thing.
They almost never clean up.
They cause us a ton of crime and cost.
So collect the assets and give a user the strong message that if you want illegal recreational drugs, go find an island.
And, there's probably at least 50 pot stores in Sacramento...more of them than Walgreens.
I know, drugs are real addicting. There is a pass ti users and we are losing genrations of especially young boys.
Time to put tons of hurt on scum dealers and the pathetic users. (Real cancer patients and the kind of this an exception of course)
Well, it's apparent your opinion has no political traction.
I suggest you go stand out on the street corner with a sign advocating such. You might be able to get people to change their ways.
and each and everyone of these space cowboys has one lingering problem. They can’t remember a thing. Natural achievers perhaps yet hobbled. Such potential wasted on self-indulgence.
But in any case recreational drug users are losers and a drag on our society and a bad example for future generations they pollute.
I can see some terminal person using it, but that is it.
The dealers for Osama, Mexico cartels also get rich and take action on taking over other countries due to the American recreational drug user.
These lost liters need to be stopped.
They are in your prisons for violent crimes.
They infect youngsters.
They almost never can get straight after rehab and destroy eventually all around them.
They should do us a favor and get loaded then swim a mile. The damage to the country, the generations lost, the governments toppled by funding of narcos by users is a horror.
We don’t need the dealers or users that aren’t doing it for a terminal disease.
The best part about potheads is that they think everyone is a pothead. It’s part of the psychosis, “it’s not a bad thing to do because EVERYONE does it!”
I’ve known a lot of potheads too. The one common trait all of them have is that they stopped maturing the day they started smoking weed.
Wanna rewrite that when you're sober?
It is a plague and lately getting to all the grade school kids.
I don’t have any issues with real medical marijuana use but the lying disgusts me. In the end, the lying will be what ends the legal medical use.
Bitter I’m not some loaded piece of trash? We all can’t be pro drug use libertarians. Some of us don’t like crime, killing kids and destroying nations.
How about you get a real doctor’s report and hold the pot mill doctors accountable for their BS?
If so, the headline of this story is spot on.
What did you build today?
What are your thoughts on alcoholic beverages and those who sell and consume them?
Go around driving drunk and such and lose your assets, do it again and again and lose your freedom for good.
Do you think Carl Sagan was stupid?
Yes, Im very fond of the Singapore model too.
There has been some talk here in Michigan about strengthening the requirements on giving or receiving prescriptions. Eventually the laws will refine to the point where you won’t be able to get a prescription without going to a real doctor who risks a malpractice suit for wrongly prescribing it.
Then idiots like my niece who haven’t got anything wrong with them won’t legally be able to get it anymore.
My father went to a "pot mill doctor" to get his prescription. He had lingering bouts of PTSD as a result of his experiences in the Hadong Ambush with the 3rd Battalion, 29th Infantry Regiment in 1949.
He asked REAL doctors from the time the law was passed, but they wouldn't touch it. They wanted him on Valium and/or SSRIs.
Weed gave him perfect relief and a pleasant, functional life. He continued to use it once he contracted Pancreatic Cancer and again, it helped him cope to his last day.
And, the local pot stores were more than accommodating to his limited means.
In your world he would have all his belongings confiscated and the producers/distributors shot.
You keep your world and I'll keep mine.
Don't come into my world with your ignorance. It won't play well there.
I like your post #3.
Ive never met an admirable pothead. Okay there was this one guy and then he killed himself.
Pulled my pud and cut the grass.
Thanks for bringing up another example. Obama the tax-hungry pothead?
Drugs are a victimless crime in the United States. Just ask all those decapitated Mexicans.
I am for the death penalty there too, so long we nuke also nations knowingly allowing the export of drugs to our nations. I am tired of being told to be suspicious of this or that person in terror cases when our government vouches no suspicion against Islam or enemies like RUssia and China.
The problem of the war on drugs is that the co-increase in drug usage cannot be explained other than by corruption.
does the pot make them stupid or do the stupid people gravitate to pot?
I think its the latter.
carl sagan was a loony quack. He made a good tv show though. I liked it.
So, should we also nuke US States who do nothing to prevent the export of "drugs" to other states?
After all, CA grows about $25bil worth of pot every year and it's not all being smoked here.
To top it off, no state agency is doing anything effective to prevent this massive export trade.
Every drug dealer and user should be made to carry around the head of a decapitated Mexican for a year. Then, after a few years, when they quit having the night screams, they’ll better understand the idea of cause and effect.
Both arguably. It makes them more stupid.
You took my note out of context and completely reversed what I was saying, because in it I never advocated denounciation of Americans, let alone nuking US states simply because corruption and cowardice on top would be too happy to promote that BEFORE going after the big guys abroad.
As far as I am concerned, yes, as a father, if someone came to push drugs on my kids, I would gladly shoot their face, and that is the way I want my country to do it too. That is the guist of the story.
But my right to defend me and my family from thug pushers and squatters of my dignity and integrity is annihilated by the libertarian free drugs mantra that is way over the top and ultimately pro government in its interference and bleeding heart mentality.
I’m a plumber, I’m not aware of plumbers being pot heads.
I'd say that every Harry Anslinger wannabe should do the same and get the cause and effect firmly implanted in their mind. Then they should ask themselves how many decapitations have occurred over the legal tomato trafficking business.
Thousands of years of being an alcohol based culture worked out pretty well for western civilization, thousands of years of being cannabis based has made the cannabis based world, (such as the Arabs) seem weird, grubby and off a degree, just like pot heads that we all know.
Often times you can see a kid instantly take on the way of the cannabis brain worm when he starts using pot, like a pod person, he becomes different from the normal as he melds into the matching personality of the others that use pot.
As far as recreational use goes it's just another vice for most people. I tolerate cannabis smokers easier then I do a drunk. Especially a stupid drunk. I wish they had a booze pre-employment test for chronic drunks...Maybe I'd quit hiring so many.
Do you, perhaps, get drunk often?
Jamaica fine island for dat, mon!;)
Some of you guys need some serious schooling on the nature of cause and effect. Oh, and on the US Constitution.
Oh so thats why leftwing socialist Europeans and liberal Californians embrace the US Constitution.
First, of all this is an international issue.
Second of all, and in any case, where in the US Constitution does it say taxpayers must fund potheads addicted to welfare?
Third of all, are you aware how much of a tax burden drug addicts are? Give them a moral lesson, not some good cop who is keeping scum off our roads.
Wow the old two wrongs make a right argument. Now thats stupid.
Excuse me: With have American drug addicts acting up here. You would of course deny the international implications just as you deny the medical evidence. Time to let go of Woodstock dude.
Yes, and all their conversations eventually come back to babbling about weed and how it's better than alcohol. I have noticed that potheads are expecially bad at mathematics. Regular weed smoking must fry the brain cells that do computations with numbers and symbols and such. Potheads are also dangerous. They will smoke pot while abroad in countries that have strict penalties for drugs (like Korea)... and claim they "aint hurtin nobody it's jest a bit of herb". If they get caught, though, all their non-pothead friends would get arrested, interrogated and probably deported... by why should the fate of friends worry a pothead?
