    I'm kinda sorta on the fence about this. I'm against illegal search and seizure (and don't get me started on cash forfeiture) but when you have millions of dollars worth of weed that's pretty much a "red flag" that one of your buddies didn't unintentionally leave it in your vehicle or anything like that.

    But I did find this funny at first:
    "Aaron Myren, a Minnesota state trooper with a track record of making large drug busts, said a cracked windshield and unsteady driving led him to stop the two men, reported theStar Tribune."

    so why is a cop driving around unsteady with a cracked windshield? Discuss!

    Cop lied to get a search, and this is what should be done.

    I know you are a big fan of the police state, but there should be rules regarding these sorts of things. Plus it is pot. If the laws were not so racist, like you, it would be legal and you would not have this sort of thing going on with RVs. The pot would be in the back of a legitimate shipping company 18 wheeler.

    I smiled. Not your best joke, but fun.

    My friend Chaos must've been enduring leftists lately (and found himself in foul humor), leftists are notoriously humorless and a scourge on the levity that helps form the glue that keeps our society together.
