Fishing for pot from jail window

It has to be difficult to outfit a fishing expedition when you're in jail.

A pair of incarcerated anglers in Florida had to find a line they could cast six stories down, plus an accomplice outside to put marijuana and tobacco on their hook.

It may have been the alleged accomplice's fault that they had to try to reel in the goodies in a flimsy plastic grocery bag. But all three of them got into trouble when the bag and the contraband were discovered hanging outside the fourth floor of the Pinellas County jail.

    A man was stopped by a game-warden in Northern Algonquin Park recently with two buckets of fish leaving a lake well known for its fishing

    The game warden asked the man, "Do you have a license to catch those fish?"

    The man replied to the game warden, "No, sir. These are my pet fish."

    "Pet fish?!" the warden replied.

    "Yes, sir. Every night I take these here fish down to the lake and let them swim around for a while. I whistle and they jump back into their buckets, and I take em home."

    "That's a bunch of hooey! Fish can't do that!"

    The man looked at the game warden for a moment, and then said, "Here, I'll show you. It really works."

    "O.K. I've GOT to see this!" The game warden was curious.

    The man poured the fish in to the river and stood and waited. After several minutes, the game warden turned to the man and said, "Well?"

    "Well, what?" the man responded.

    "When are you going to call them back?" the game warden prompted.

    "Call who back?" the man asked.

    "The FISH"

    "What fish?" the man asked.

      Hello dazzle
      It's great to see you as well my friend. Between the CNN censorship and the lack of stimulating subjects and a hectic schedule, it's been a chore trying to post.

      Maybe Rand Paul would like to hire them because they're southern red necks. He seems to go in for that sort of thing.

    Hey chrissy
    How the heck are you doing ? I was just reading an article about some homes in Detroit sellinf for as little as $5,000. Of the pictures shown, some of them looked pretty nice. This a buyers paradise for rental property if Detroit should recover. You wouldn't believe the comments that were made in regards to that once proud place. Detroit has all of sudden become the most despised place on earth. That's a shame.

  10. oh please

    NO the UNIVERSE cost $1,500 USD per ounce.

    This article is propaganda. There is no way that they are basing their figures on anything in reality. This is nothing but lies to make sentencing be longer and fool the people who never buy pot into believing that people make a serious amount of money off of this. No pot....ever...cost $1500 bucks and ounce. Thats complete lies.
