Remember that time when…
Bill Murray got arrested at Chicago O’Hare Airport with 10lbs of marijuana?
In 1970, Murray was busted at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport with ten pounds of marijuana after he “jokingly told another passenger that he was carrying two bombs in his luggage.”
A ticket agent apparently overheard Murray’s comment about the bombs and subsequently unleashed the wrath of federal agents. No explosive devices were found in his luggage; however, agents did find five bricks of weed with an estimated value of $20,000.
Murray received a misdemeanor conviction and sentenced to five years probation.
We found out why Gilligan from Gilligan’s Island was so goofy?
Bob Denver, the actor who played Gilligan on the show, got a package filled with 35 grams of weed delivered to his home in 1998. The only problem? It was delivered by a federal agent from the DEA. Denver cooperated and was sentenced to six months of probation.
The Daily Currant punked the gullible public into believing 37 people died of marijuana overdoses upon Colorado legalizing recreational use?
“It’s complete chaos here,’ says Dr. Jack Shepard, chief of surgery at St. Luke’s Medical Center in Denver. “I’ve put five college students in body bags since breakfast and more are arriving every minute.
“We are seeing cardiac arrests, hypospadias, acquired trimethylaminuria and multiple organ failures. By next week the death toll could go as high as 200, maybe 300. Someone needs to step in and stop this madness. My god, why did we legalize marijuana? What were we thinking?”
Redman got his supply jacked?
“I was selling, and I was down to like maybe my last 15 bags or whatever. I was thinkin’ I can stand out there and just sell to each car, but I was greedy and wanted to sell all of it to this one car, so I could be through.
It was late and there was hardly nobody out there. So I’m lettin’ this dude check the weed. Then that nigga snatched my bag. Vroom! He took off with my 15 bags! I was cheated – I was fucking cheated! But that’s what you gotta go through, man, dealing that way.”
Dennis “Oil Can” Boyd got supplied his weed from the Boston Red Sox so that he’d play better?
“Here’s the truth: The Red Sox made sure I had pot. They made sure nobody was gonna bother me about gettin’ it. I could go anywhere in Boston, any city, and buy it. They wanted me to get high before a game. Bill Buckner once said to them, “You leave him alone, because whatever he’s on, get him some more. Keep him high.”
