Pennsylvania man complained to police about buying bad pot
AP – Mon Oct 25, 2010

UNIONTOWN, PA, USA – A southwestern Pennsylvania man called 911 to complain about some terrible marijuana he had just purchased, which turned out to be something other than pot. Police said the man told officers he bought the substance earlier that day and that "it was nasty" when he smoked it.

Uniontown Detective Donald Gmitter said a field test determined the substance wasn't pot at all, but police didn't say what it was.

Even though the 21-year-old man didn't technically buy marijuana, he isn't off the hook.

Sgt. Wayne Brown told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that Wednesday's incident remains under investigation, and the man could face a charge of possessing a counterfeit controlled substance.

Comment 1

The "counterfeit controlled substance" is very likely something poisonous or harmful, which no one should be smoking.

The person selling could have advertised it as tobacco; or as a new kind of "legal high"; or as a "smoking herbal blend"; or as Cannabis... whatever the claim, isn't it the responsibility of the Police to protect us from dangerous and unknown substances?
Where should a person go for help in a case like this if the Police is going to charge you with a non-existent crime?

Comment 2

The "counterfeit controlled substance" might turn out to be a harmless herb like oregano (which should not be smoked in large quantities), or like mullein (which is ok to smoke sometimes). But still, the act of selling it while pretending it's Cannabis, is a fraud. If you sell your own sperm as "hand lotion" you are committing fraud against someone. If you sell bits of gravel from your back yard as "antique gallstones" you are committing fraud.

Wouldn't it be great if we lived in a world where the Police considered it their duty to protect us from fraud of this type? ESPECIALLY when the substance we are being led to believe we are buying - Cannabis, in this case - has been proven by thousands of years of scientific investigation and usage, including seventy years of rigorous laboratory-based modern Science, to be absolutely safe, wonderfully beneficient for hundreds of illnesses and declared by millions of people as a true Path to the Divine?
