OMG, A 23 Year Old Smoked Weed! Everyone Panic!

Eager to get his name in the news, fresh off the small-sized hooplah regarding Michael Phelps smoking a bong, Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott announced that he wants to prosecute Phelps despite the police department saying they had no interest in pressing charges.

“This case is no different than any other case,” Lott said Monday. “This one might be a lot easier since we have photographs of someone using drugs and a partial confession. It’s a relatively easy case once we can determine where the crime occurred.”

Great, but um, what’s the pressing issue on this “crime”? Please remind me of the victims who are demanding justice. Also, is it the intention of Lott to arrest everyone smoking weed in the area of the University of South Carolina?

The charges which Lott would most likely be charging Phelps is possession of marijuana, a misdemeanor, punishable by up to 30 days in jail or a $570 fine, plus court costs. Of course, you’d have to prove that he has possession, and I feel fairly certain that the weed in question is no longer available, so it seems like this case would be built on a pretty shaky foundation.

Of course, no one else cares, not the police department, not Phelps’ sponsors, not the University of South Carolina, no one really cares AT ALL except Lott, who seems to be mortally offended that a 23 year old smoked some weed one night in September.

That’s some good police work Leon…

However, the real outrage is that Phelps was using a Roor bong, I mean, sure, German craftmanship is nice, but they are so utilitarian, where’s the artful design, the heady glass marbles and colors? I’ll take a Jerome Baker any day over a boring old Roor.
