Man Calls Police To Check His "Nasty" Marijuana Purchase

A Uniontown man Wednesday called police because what he believed was marijuana that he bought on the street tasted "nasty."

Now, investigators said, the 21-year-old man could be charged with possession of a look-a-like drug. He was not immediately arrested, and police declined to release his name.

Police were summoned at 9:59 p.m. to the man's apartment on Millview Street.

He reported that he had just bought a small amount of what he thought was marijuana. The taste turned him off, so he called police to check it for him, said police Det. Donald Gmitter.

Officers arrived and found the green, leafy substance laid out on a paper on a table.

Police said a field test kit used on the material was negative, Det. Gmitter said.

Officers still confiscated the substance, which may be a kitchen spice instead of intoxicating weed.

As dumb as the complaint sounds, Det. Gmitter said it's not nearly the first time someone has called to report being ripped off during the commission of illegal activity.

"We've had people call about prostitutes who, after they give them the money, they run away," Det. Gmitter said. "That's happened quite a few times."

The investigation is simmering.

  5. The possession of a look-a-like drug charge is there to arrest drug dealers selling fake drugs. If that law didn't exist then it might be possible for a dealer to get off on the technicality that they were selling marjoram, and only have lesser, fraud related charges, apply to their activities. To apply the law here is a little suspect. It's not what the law was designed to be used for, but I guess it is up to the DA to run with it or not.
