This is their way of going after pizza delivery drivers.
Oh no! But I wanted to install snowchains SOOOOOO bad!
What's more interesting is that his friend, who was asleep and not charged with anything, was also banned.
wow consequences for doing something illegal, who knew!
Even though I am pro-pot, think about it.
Yes, he is using an impairing substance (however slight) to install something that - if incorrectly affixed- could fly off or something. I can sorta see where they are coming from.
What if he got stoned and put the chains on the rear wheels of a front-wheel drive car?
Sober people be doing this all the time, y'all.
Nicely played, sir.
I have installed chains, changed headlights, and performed a wide variety of simple car maintenance procedures while high on pot, without any problems. Now, maybe if the guy was doing my brakes I'd want to make sure he wasn't stoned, but putting on snowchains? C'mon...
Social Darwinism example #569032...
I have ZERO sympathy for these guys, for the following reasons:
* Getting high before installing what could be a life-saving device for someone is ethically suspect
* Getting high on the side of the road, in a specific state-sanctioned area to boot, is just stupid.
I get high, and one of the reasons I have never been busted is because i never, EVER, smoke in the car -- driving, parked, whatever, it's an instant opportunity for The Man to crawl straight up your Constitutional asshole. Better to get high at home or at a party and leave the car for driving (and then there's the whole issue of driving high...).
Be smart: enjoy your weed, but remember it is ILLEGAL and can be used as an entry point for further fucking with your privacy by certain law enforcement agencies.
Who the fuck is Jubilation T. Cornball
did you change names or what
@11 -- Ummm, no, I've been me since my first post several weeks ago.
i'm so glad that i stopped smoking in october.
now i can tell you all that all lawbreakers deserve their punishment & i have no sympathy for these 2.
Dudes, I don't even have a driver's license. So I can't say nuthin.
Oh. It's just that you've been commenting like WOAH today
and you're kinda good, so I thought you were Will in Seattle or something (I'm pretty regular and have not noticed your name for this supposed several weeks)
Lake @12: "and you're kinda good, so I thought you were Will in Seattle"
Are you SURE you read the Slog a lot?
Jubilation is a Civil War general from L'il Abner, if I'm not mistaken. One of the best comments aliases I've ever seen.
Agreed. Will in Seattle is a fucking clown shoe. He's like the living, breating version of the Uptight Seattleite from SEAT.
Oh shawdupp Fnarf. I just threw a frequent name out there because you always get the glory...and I have not noticed any recent postings by him.
Anyway, Jubilation T. Cornball is somebody.
He's posting to EVERY thread with thought and caress. I'm guessing it's somebody who has been around for a while.
@15 -- Yeah, I had today off, a new bag of weed, and nothing to do (honestly, that should read "did not want to do anything") so I set my hat to blog like the dickens. Blog comments give me a chance to be opinionated and loquacious in the comfort of my underwear and home office chair (TMI, sorry).
Thanks for ("kinda") liking my comments :-)
@16 -- You and I seem to butt heads more often than not, but thanks for liking my alias. I'm sure we'll find some way to share common ground on a topic one of these days. Maybe you could join me for a drink with my boyfriend, David Beckham?
OK, I want to know if this guy would have been busted just as hard if he'd been drinking a beer or nipping from a hip flask and was half in the bag. I also want to know if it would be possible for scientists to breed pot that was less stinky when burned, thus making public smoking that much safer.
I'm still not convinced that "Will in Seattle" posts are not brilliant pieces of parody.
you guys have too much time on your hands.
Lake has got to be an alternate identity for Jube, or Lake is fishing for a hookup with Jubilation T. Cornball. Either way smoking pot in public is dumb since it is illeagal, and doing so while mucking around with a car on the side of the road is even dumber.
And "yes", all of us do have way too much time on our hands.
Don't smoke during your work shift.
neither. and never mind, entirely.
I agree with ALMOST everything you say, and I did agree with this post... until I read the article.
There is a HUGE difference, (in my mind at least), between being banned from a job because you were busted for smoking pot once, at some time in the past, while not at work, VS being fired and banned from returning to that job for getting busted smoking pot on that job, and behind the wheel.
Wait until you get home, or get better at hiding it.
I am not Lake. Lake is not me.
And I doubt very much if I am Lake's type, anyway, as I am physically nothing more than cascading shelves of blog-typing fat, thatched inconsistently with tufts of unpleasantly thick hair, and possessed of a face that no mother -- even the benighted beast that gave me life -- could love.
Even if he were to turn on to this disgusting corpulence, Lake would labor fruitlessly to locate my sex organs, bits of troubled flesh I myself have not laid eyes upon for well over a decade; the waste matter merely seeps out, and thus I wrap myself in absorbent cloth and slather myself in perfumed unguents when I go out to by my sacks of Dick's. Otherwise, I am naked, lolling in a slowly spreading mass of lipids and skin, fusing to the Herculon fabric that covers my long-suffering La-Z-Boy.
And @16 -- the correct name of the character in Lil' Abner is Jubilation T. CornPONE, but since I had the opportunity to name myself, I chose what I felt to be a better second half of the maize-based compound.

You think we've been butting heads? Oh, you are new. I was having a good time. I'm not much interested in echo-chamber blogs; we were having a DISCUSSION. No, sir, the JTC comment stylings have the Fnarf Seal of Approval.
I am awash in gratitude.
Hah, entertaining thread. Hee hee.
I don't think Will would deign to use an alias.
My fave is running into (or being) a stoned-ass bartender struggling to maintain. The eye contact is priceless.
