(Newser) – A detective in New Jersey's Andover Township got a strange text on his new cell phone: Hey, it asked, want to buy a quarter-pound of pot? Well, sure, replied the detective, who then set up a rendezvous. The would-be seller smelled a rat upon arrival and fled, but police soon confiscated four bags of marijuana from his vehicle, reports NJ.com. Nicholas Delear (yep, his real last name), 33, now faces a slew of drug charges in what might be the easiest bust of the year.

F*cking big-government, communist, socialist, Marxist, nanny-state, police-state tyrants! Meanwhile, there are a couple of LEGAL, universally-available, socially-acceptable drugs that actually cause the deaths of countless people and the murder of countless others... Marijuana? Are you f*cking kidding? No, it's no bubble gum or lolly pops, but it's no tobacco or alcohol, either.
