4 took baby on drug buy, police say - OR, how NOT to act when buying ganja

4 took baby on drug buy, police say

This is a good example of things that would not happen if ganja were legal today. How would SB 94 help prevent situations like this? SB 94 will only make things worse.

That said, note where the ganjaists went wrong.

If you have to travel with children, make certain they are properly secured. If one gouy has to sit on the transmission hump, too bad. Make sure your license, car registration, insurance and the condition of the car are not going to give cops any reason to eyeball you, or "enhance" charges against you.

For gods' sake, don't stash your damned weed right next to the baby. What are you, brain damaged? Keep your weed, bowl and papers in your pocket. When you get your sack(s), don't try to hide in a friggin' parking' lot filling a bowl or rolling fat ones. Go home. You are far safer in the privacy of your own home. Did I ever mention that nearly every ganja bust in Delaware is during some sort of traffic stop? No one is busted in their own homes smoking a little ganja.


See the sentence above regarding brain damage. Even if it seems like they "got you", shut the heck up. What in your mind wants you to help the cops make your life into hell?

Make sure your passengers know enough NOT to talk to the police or give permission to search. If the cops have to ask for permission to search, they do not have probable cause. If they have probable cause, they are not going to bother asking for permission, since you will already be in the back of a cop car wearing handcuffs.

Things WILL NOT go easier on you if you cooperate. Does it look like any of these boys are having an easy time of it? NO! Because they did not know enough to shut up and not give permission to search.

(Coming up, new information about how to mount an affirmative defense as a medical marijuana patient if you get busted. I really hope enough people tell their state congress critter SB 94 sucks, or we will lose this defense for MOST patients for a half-assed law that only protects a tiny number of patients who are not being arrested in the first place, and more people will be going to jail.)

4 took baby on drug buy, police say

The News Journal

A 25-year-old Newark man and three of his friends were arrested for drug possession Friday afternoon after they drove around looking for drugs with a 4-month-old baby in the car, police said.

New Castle County police said officers stopped a suspicious car near the Castle Brook apartment complex at 1:35 p.m. after a call came in describing the car. Police responding to Saienni Boulevard and Karen Court stopped the car and found an infant improperly secured in the back seat.

According to court documents, Stephan Vickers, the baby's father, was driving. Craig Anderson, 24, and Matreed Spruill, 25, were in the back seat with the child improperly fastened between them. Drew Norris, 23, was in the passenger's seat next to Vickers, court records show.

Court records said Vickers gave police permission to search his car and that an officer found two plastic bags containing marijuana and drug paraphernalia. One bag of marijuana was in the back seat, next to the child. Police said another bag was on the floor, behind the passenger seat. Officers also found drug paraphernalia.

Police said the four were on an outing to buy drugs. The suspects were charged with multiple drug offenses, endangering the welfare of a child and conspiracy. Vickers also was charged with driving with a suspended license, driving without insurance and failure to transfer title and registration. All were committed to Young Correctional Institution, Norris and Spruill on $1,750 bail each, Anderson on $4,000 and Vickers on $3,750 bail. The baby was turned over to family members.
