This is totally harshing my mellow, man. A Virginia man whose last name is Stoner is facing drug charges after police found more than $10,000 worth of marijuana plants at his home.


[su_center_ad]42-year-old Paul Scott Stoner of Unionville is charged with growing marijuana and having a firearm while in possession of more than a pound of marijuana, according to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.

The Associated Press reports that the charges stem from an ongoing investigation related to the alleged sale of marijuana to children in Orange County. Further charges are pending.

According to authorities, they acted on a tip that Stoner was selling to children and during the search last Thursday, they seized marijuana, marijuana plants, drug paraphernalia, prescription drugs, needles, spoons and guns.


Stoner was released on bond.

    If it was simply legalized, douchebags like this guy would have to learn a legal trade. Only reputable weed dealers would be successful. His clients have little choice so he practically runs a monopoly on the drug.

      Not just this guy… violent drug cartels would cease to exist. Prisons would be significantly less populated. Taxpayers would be saved billions. We could concentrate on rehabbing drug addicts instead of punishing them. The economy would get a boost from rehabbed drug addicts being free instead of being imprisoned unfairly and unconstitutionally. A large part of the immigration “problem” would be fixed overnight as violent cartels cease to exist. The list truly goes on and on. It all needs to be legalized.

    Spoons?? I must be out of touch.

      No, your just thinking of the wrong drug. He apparently dabbles in multiple recreational drugs, he was just busted in possession of the least harmful.

      Back in the day, when I was young and living with the first Mr – we had a roommate. I could not figure out why all of my tablespoons were disappearing – it appears they are used to cook down drugs for shooting up. For a year after we booted him out, I found burnt and bent up tablespoons all over the house.

        My ex-brother stole a bunch of my crazy grandmother’s real silverware to make rings out of…

    Fate, it seems, has a bit of irony.

    True story: On a lazy trip from KC to Omaha, stopping in a little town somewhere in Iowa for lunch, we passed a drugstore named Stoner Drugs. I used to have the photo.
