  • Wow you can’t make this stuff up crazy round here these days….

  • 23 pounds or 230 pounds,,who cares? It is what we do up here Stupid bastard could have gotten a drivers license though and at least put the weed in the trunk. But who gives a shit about him driving weed. People grow it,sell it smoke it,,,,some body has to drive it,,,,but again,,,,he got pulled over because of some thing with his driving. Not because the cop knew he had 23 pounds. If your going to drive with weed? Do it right.

  • Wow Asian w no drivers license lol

  • more likely driving while asian (in a small town) was his only offense … the cops are profiling more than ever around here…would be really nice if they added meth’ers to their profile list…

    • Really gona pull the race card? If they were profiling it would be a lifted dodge with a pit bull in the back and a white guy with dreads driving

  • GO BOON!


  • Thank God for stupid people make the rest of us look like geniuses you go boy

  • Who …Hmong.. us should cast the first elbow to the ribs of the “innocent,” driver… Cross over that double line …Elbows be damned hand me a pen…. You all drive like crap….😁

  • I don’t think a 215 covers that big of amount of Mary Jane
