(Newser) – A Pennsylvania man has become a case study in what not to say to cops. Devonte Davon Jeter was arrested for marijuana possession in May, and in a preliminary hearing yesterday, his lawyer made the case that the pot could have belonged to someone else in his car, the Beaver County Times reports. But it seems Jeter had already put a hole in that story: When the 19-year-old left custody in May, he "asked if he could have his weed back," an officer testified. "I don't know what else ‘Can I have my weed back' can mean, other than it's his," said a prosecutor. The judge, not so surprisingly, determined that there was enough evidence to hold the Jeter for trial.

No, dear. The cop gets to keep most of your pot---whatever he forgot to place in the evidence bag.

Up until I saw this, I didn't think using pot caused brain damage, nor did I think anyone could possibly be this stupid. Apparently I'm wrong on one or both.

You'd have a better shot at getting your spy drone back from Iran pal.
