  1. Can the police even count?

    500 grams – 17 ounces – say an ounce costs you $260 this means the value of the pot is actually $4641

    There is NO WAY anyone would pay $126 for a quarter and certainly no bloody way they’d pay $504 for an ounce.

    Honestly the way the police sensationalize the so called “profit” needs to be addressed, if they are willing to lie to make the bust seem huge, what else are they lying about?
