They're Everywhere- Addendum

I was just having some fun when I tried to make people think I'd be selling pot plants at a plant sale a few days ago. Looks like I wasn't being too nutty, though. This guy in Arcata is selling pot plant starts on Craigslist (215 only, of course- wink, wink). He even has a picture of them. I guess pot is everywhere!

As an aside, posted to Craigslist lately? Just posted an ad there. You have to open an account with them to post ads now. They even require phone verification. It's not too big a deal. You just supply them with your phone number. They call you and give you an authentication code that you type into the online form. Wonder what we'll see next from Craigslist?

People have been posting ads for slips on craigslist for the last couple of years. There was a guy who was posting ads for eighths for $30. Those started getting flagged so fast that I think he gave up.

People also hide their clone ads in other ads and use code words that squares wouldn't understand. I saw one that was title something to the effect of "great plugs" and advertised "crack babies."

The thing is, anyone who is wise enough to know all of that code probably doesn't need what they are selling. Anyone who couldn't find these probably doesn't know the code.

I tried advertising banana plantlets with the location "SoHum." I got about a dozen responses but nobody actually wanted banana plants... they wanted "banana" plants. What they need on humboldt craigslist is a marijuana section to free up to farm/garden section. All this codeword hush hush wink wink stuff is ridiculous.

The World would be a much better place if we could sell marijuana just like alcohol is sold but , first we must make alcohol illegal then make marijuana completely legal . Millions of lives would be saved , billions in health care costs , costs of littering reduced ( ever see someone throw a marijuana butt out the window ? ) crime decreased and much much more benefits .

...first we must make alcohol illegal....

I think we already tried that.

The title of this post caught my eye: "They're Everywhere". Something else that's everywhere as noted by Redding Searchlight blogger Marc Beauchamp.
"All the low-life people, where do they all come from, where do they all belong?"

Not many replies to Marc's question. Obviously nobody has the answer...
