    Weak or not you die the same! He didn’t die because he used the drugs , he died because he couldn’t afford them! If you want to see what drugs do to the human body go check out backwoods experiment when they play at a local venue!

    No officer ” I picked these here fellas up hitchhiking” and no officer my fellas like to go for a nightly ride for ice cream! Thank goodness they didn’t check under my seat and see the packets of black tar!

  • Wayne Shultz

    It all starts with “it’s just marijuana ” and next thing as in my brothers case it was pills , cocaine , heroin and now he’s buried next to my great grandmother in the Montoursville Cemetery!

    Let’s hope any judge has the good sense not to waste taxpayers’ money by sending these two to jail. They should receive Community Service and, perhaps, probation–at most.

  • Maplewood

    The only charges against this guy should be “crimes against horticulture!”

    My gawd, man, were these things grown on your windowsill?

  • simply comical

    Make sure you get all those bags of potting soil in the photo op. Thank god you keystone cops got that stuff off the streets! The next bust will probably be at Lowes huh?

    WoooHooo the real criminals have been caught, what a waste of taxpayer money.violent crime throughout your city and this is what the police are proud of.

      Honestly, this is akin to arresting the Baldwin sisters from Walton Mountain for brewing “Papa’s Recipe.”

      This is comedy for all, but the poor guys nabbed. Does anyone feel any safer for it?

      Pa. could parlay that into a tourist industry! “Rocky Mountain high….in the Poconos!”

      Casinos?….everybody’s got ’em.
      Historic sites?….. on the East Coast, they’re a dime a dozen.
      Fall Foliage?….yeah, along with our 13 or more closest neighboring states.

      Lawful, regulated, TAXED cannabis tourism? NOBODY on the east coast has got it.

  • I don't want to live on this planet anymore.

    lol we are a lost cause in so many ways. one thing holds true and that is: we make terrible decisions. humans continually make the same mistake over and over. it’s a surprise we made it this far!
