In these recessionary times, folks will do anything to provide a nice Christmas for their families. Some take on second jobs loading trucks at UPS or doing night inventory at their local retail establishments. Others take to eBay and Craigslist, selling off lesser used items to provide enjoyment to other families. And still others, like actor Jermaine “Huggy” Hopkins, attempt to sell drugs.
Hopkins, whom The Smoking Section style guide requires me to refer to as “Sams” for the rest of this post, was arrested in Arizona earlier this week after he allegedly purchased over 200 pounds of marijuana from undercover officers. Sams, who lives in North Carolina, was pulled over after the buy was completed, where the police say they recovered $100,000 in cash from his SUV. Arizona police also claim to have found an additional 100 pounds of the sticky icky in Sams’ local apartment. More news as details come in.
On the bright side, at least it was weed and not crack.
