Can you tell it’s a drug bust by his hair cut? [updated]

By Barcham 14 March 2013 24

excitement

Heading back towards the You Are Here hub after a late lunch, Festival Coordinator Adam Hadley and myself happened along a rather exciting scene outside of Mooseheads. The You Are Here team quickly mobilised to stare through the windows and gossip.

A rather large pile of suspicious looking goods were being sorted through by police, and two men with terrible haircuts were looking quite sad.

We will update the story as soon as we get a comment from the Police.

UPDATE: We received this comment from a police spokesperson:

The men were pulled over for a traffic incident outside Mooseheads.

One of the men was arrested as he was found to be in possession of a drug of dependence.

He has been taken to the ACT Regional Watch House.

When I read a warm and touching and above all reasonable thread like this, I just can’t understand why some people might be loath to comment here…

Yeah, apologies. I think I read the law back-to-front. Drug of dependence doesn’t include cannabis, as the above poster has already mentioned, as it is a prohibited substance.

Here’s a more comprehensive list of drug of dependence.
Includes cocaine and meth (ice).

Yeah i didn’t think cannabis was considered a drug of dependence and nor should it IMO.Going by looks alone,hardly an exact art,i suspected speed or ekkies users/dealers.

Feeling a bit silly now after your tantrum? I generally treat people on this site with the same level of respect I’m given. In your case, that’s none.

So that’s why you jumped down Jivraisha’s throat over an innocent comment? Come off it mate, you’re fooling no-one but yourself with that ‘respect’ garbage. You treat people as though they’re beneath you, with mild contempt like how a farmer treats his cattle.

I can understand that, but you do realise and this will probably earn me being put in the same group that you put Tooks, he only asserted that because of your arm chair knowitallism, just saying is all.

Jivraisha was the one who said it was weed, not me. I didn’t make any definitive statements, just a sweeping and probably incredibly unfair assumption about Tooks, who in fairness was acting like belligerent know-it-all.

PBO said :

Tooks was just being straight up about it, thats all. Chill out, it wasnt your dealer was it?

You read it as straight-up, I read it as smug and unnecessarily snarky, but that’s fine not really a big deal. And no it’s not my dealer, I avoid buying my weed from wannabe thugz.

Cannabis with quantity for personal use only?

Move along… Nothing to see here.

Wow, you can tell it’s a small amount of cannabis from the photo?

Obviously not, because he was referencing the statement from police. You’re a belligerent know-it-all aren’t you? I can see why you joined the force, must’ve been nice to be able to tell folks what to do and bust heads with impunity to boot.

Actually…. The Police statement says “drug of dependence” which includes but is not limited to heroin, bupamorphine, methamphetamine etc.

Cannabis is a prohibited substance, where anything under 25g would have gotten the offender a SCON… So… I think you can safely say it is not cannabis, so DrKoresh, does Tooks get an apology because your retort is based on no fact?

I’ll cop to being wrong in assuming it was cannibis but I don’t think that has any bearing on Took’s attitude or my opinion of him, so… No.

Actually, I’m not a cop and have never proclaimed to be. BTW, where in the media release does it say cannabis?

Better to be a know-it-all than a know-absolutely-nothing.

The hair and shiny new trainers are a dead giveaway.

Also, the cop on the right needs to get his pants altered.

Thanks for the clarification DrKoresh.

I referenced the police statement because there was no mention of commercial quantity, which lead me to believe that what the police found was “drug of dependence”, which subtly suggested that they just had some small quantity of cannabis on them.

They’ll probably just get a TIN and a fine for the weed.
Hardly a crime (actually, technically, it isn’t a crime), unless you include Bad-Hair-Do as one.

S***, I’m guilty of that, hardly seems like a crime though. On the other hand, I do support them being pulled up for driving like wankers 😀

Totally failing to get the humour, reference and intent of a post, how “How_Canberran.”
