So “WHDH Investigates” did a segment recently about a loophole in the new legalization of marijuana in Massachusetts. Basically the new bans individuals from growing more than six plants in their home because they’re afraid that local pot growers will get shaken down by the Mafia, and the government wants their cut. However, there is a loophole in our law, just like with Colorado’s law, that allows people to “assist” others in pot growing, which would make it easier for people to grow hundreds of plants at home.
Anyway, that’s not why we’re writing this blog. We’re writing this blog because of the person that WHDH chose to use as the centerpiece of their “investigative” reporting. First of all, they went to Winchendon. The odds of finding a shady character in Winchendon are about as high as the odds of a fupasloth not getting their money’s worth on a Planet Fitness membership. Check it out:
Pot plants are now legally sprouting inside homes across Massachusetts. But police in Colorado are warning that people growing pot at home is a major problem there. And 7News discovered a single word in our state’s marijuana law could prove to be a sinister seed.
Nestled against the New Hampshire border, and just a block from the Winchendon Police Station, Charlie Keith walked 7News up to his attic to show off one of the state’s first legal, recreational pot grows inside a home. He even proudly posted a copy of his driver’s license right on the grow room door.
“I take 100 percent responsibility for what’s behind this door,” Keith said.
Inside two closets, three seeds – planted just after legalization – are protected by a multi-camera security system.
“I’m expecting about a pound-and-a-half,” Keith said of the amount of marijuana he expects to grow.
About one month later, the bud was budding. Keith insisted his cannabis crop will not be for sale — but his services are.
“I’m trying to satisfy the average pothead,” Keith said.
He’s capitalizing via Craigslist. Once marijuana home growing was legalized, Keith posted an ad on the website: For $150, he’ll set up a marijuana grow room in your home.
Keith said when people contact him in response to the ad, “They ask if I’m a cop.”
Hey WHDH – you might wanna try doing a background check before you highlight someone for your investigation. Ya know, because you were just in some guy’s attic who is a known heroin dealer who’s also been arrested for vandalizing property:
Check it out: On Monday, Mr. Keith was arraigned in Winchendon District Court in Gardner on charges of possession of Suboxone and possession of Suboxone with the intent to distribute in connection with the search of his home. He was also arraigned on charges of possession of heroin, possession of heroin with the intent to distribute, conspiracy to violate drug laws, possession of a class C drug and possession of a class C drug with the intent to distribute. The class C drugs were believed to be Clonazepan. Police confiscated seven bags believed to contain one gram each of heroin and 10 pills.
Arrested Charles Keith, 23, of 27 Chestnut St. at 7:02 p.m. at Front Street on a charge of vandalizing property.
Oh yea, and when the cops first encountered him on a routine stop, he tried to swallow all the drugs and then he got tased when he wouldn’t spit it out:
The vehicle stopped and Mr. Keith, a passenger, got out, acting as though he was attempting to hide something. Officer Wolski ordered the driver and another passenger to remain in the car while he tried to search Mr. Keith. He said Mr. Keith put a baggie containing powder into his mouth, trying to swallow it. Officer Wolski said he ordered him to spit out the baggie. When he did not do so, the officer used a Taser on him. Eventually Mr. Keith spit out the baggie and was arrested.
First of all, the first thing WHDH should’ve done is realized they where they were. Winchentuky. Home of the unadvertised year long yard sale:
Odds are when you’re meeting up with a shady pot grower in Winchendon, he’s all too familiar with the fastest way to get to the courthouse.
I mean, all they really had to do was just go on his Facebook page and see this:
Yea, whenever someone takes a picture of themselves stacking hundred and fifty dollar bills, it’s basically them announcing to the world that they’re selling heroin. That’s the beauty of heroin dealers – they’re not smart people. Nice job WHDH. You just spent the day with a guy whose been selling a drug that kills people during an opiate epidemic, and getting tased by a cop in order to spit out all the drugs hidden in his mouth. Sounds like the kind of guy you wanna spotlight. Well done. Another mainstream media fail. This is why you read Turtleboy.
Anyway, we warned everyone about what would happen when we legalized weed. It was almost a guarantee that Massachusetts would find a way to ruin it. You’re not gonna see any pot shops opening up anywhere because the Statehouse is gonna spend all their time arguing about which regulations to add and whose brother in law gets appointed to what regulation committee. Because this is how we operate in the Bay State. We take nice things and we fuck it up.
