Why the hell would he put so much damn weed in it?!?



I think it's so the dog was meant to find it...e.g. for this NOT to happen

Stupid doggies, can't smell weed lol. I've been pulled up because the dog went off over cough medicine.

142g = £5,000 ??

3.5g = £20 where I live so I make 142g around £810. Someone's getting majorly ripped off!

Edit: I'm not making some silly error in my math am I?

20/3.5 = 5.71 (that's how much 1 gram is)
5.71 x 142 = 810.82

Whenever police estimate prices for drugs (and cannabis in particular) they use gram prices (assuming that it will be sold at that unit to find 'street value'), and they tend to use the highest price estimate they can. Makes them look better.

You mean someone somewhere is paying £35 for a gram, that's £120 for an eighth!! I could get a half for less than that!

yeah, but that estimate is just over the top, it's almost 10 times what the weed would actually go for. Unless it's like that super crazy designer dutch weed.

Hahaha... a gram here differs from dealer to dealer. I can get it for $10 usually, or $5 from dealers that are my friends. I can get a half quad for $20-$25 usually too... Least I've gotten it for is $15.

Damn, that's a lot of weed though.
#17
Then its either a typo or the cops found someone selling a gram for that much and decided to use it as an arbitrary measure. With the UK media you never know. For all we know they could have picked a number out of their ass and printed it because it sounds good.

I have seen some really high end Dutch stuff go for that much here in the states, so they could be basing it on something like that.

They have edited the article. When I posted it gave a price. Obviously they were wrong, but it was there

Yeah, not like he can say that the customs officers put it there in Tokyo. And the customs guys dont know who they put the stuff with. Well when the next article comes out "Police Find 142 Grams Of Pot" they can find the guy.
#32
Well the insane prices are probably because this was in Japan, with extremely strict laws on weed.

wouldn't they want to estimate cheaper?

they don't want to make it look like more weed than it is, since... you know... they LOST it.

It wouldn't be a suitcase full. They only put it in in the side pocket.

Poor guy, if he gets stopped in another country with strict drug laws then that'd really suck for him.

I don't think that the BBC really cares about the reputation of some Japanese airport's security checks.
