The potted pot plant thief

July 18th, 2012 · 26 comments

“This was posted on the elevator door in my building,” says Konstantin in NYC. “It refers to the marijuana plant left in a pot right in front of the building for over a week. I love my neighbors…”

Psst, Whiteboy — perhaps a guard dog is in order?

To the person that took the weed plant! It was not TRASH It belong to me (Whiteboy) please Bring it back down. I will eventually find out. Just bring it down.

Meanwhile, in Seattle…

Hey! Those pots were not FREE! give them back!

      He must have been. The logic of “I left my weed outside. Somebody must have thrown it out!” is akin to “I left my wallet containing $1,000 and all my credit cards outside. Somebody must have thrown it out!” Even potheads named Whiteboy can’t be that stupid when sober.

    Good job! The officer who disposed of your weed will be delighted to meet you.

      That’s the part that got me too. He left his *illegal* drugs out in the open for a week and then left a public note demanding their return? That’s just asking to be arrested.

      he’s not going to be arrested for a single pot plant sitting out in front of the building. AT most, it’ll be destroyed. He’d likely not even get a ticket. It doesn’t constitute enough weed to merit much reaction from a legal standpoint. (I’m assuming this was just a regular, lame pot plant, not some lush, overgrown pot plant capable of actually getting someone high if they smoked it.)

      There’s a part of me that hopes that Whiteboy is his last name, and he’s actually black.

      I’m kinda picturing that fat/pudgy kid, Whitey, from the Leave It to Beaver tv show.

      Nah, the fat one was Larry. Whitey was just a regular blonde kid.

      I’m with The Elf on this one; I’d love for him to be a black guy whose surname is Whiteboy. Like the 1980s UK politician entrusted with responsibility for drafting racial equality legislation whose surname was “Whitelaw”. True story.

    Someone should leave a bunch of empty Doritos bags outside his front door with a post-it that just says “Thanks!”

    Thats an undercover operation from Police. The officers assume that every weedhead will Dream he has taken the plant and 20 will try to bring a plant back. Or someone try to collect plant

    1) Sorry about your plant
    2) I accidentally fell into it, breaking it
    3) I didn’t mean to
    4) Assuming theft is offensive
    5) Here’s $22 worth of dime bags b/c I feel bad

    I can’t imagine a pot plant being safe from theft anywhere except behind locked gates/doors and an OPAQUE fence. There’s stoners out there who’ll climb razor wire for smoke.

    Lemme see if I understand the logic of this note: Whiteboy’s weed Plant! was mistaken for trash and then stolen by the thief. Ergo, the thief hoards garbage?

    Even if the note doesn’t get him arrested, he seems like the kind of person who would file a police report in an attempt to recover his stolen plant. I’ll look for him on one of those TV shows that highlights the world’s dumbest criminals.

    He’ll eventually find out. Regular drug users are famous for their keen mental faculties.
