That's the text message that a Fairfax police officer received last week when a drug dealer accidentally solicited cannabis to the officer instead of his buyer. The message was handed over to narcotics detectives who then set up a meeting with the man. He was later arrested with over a pound of cannabis and charged with possession with intent to distribute.

For new and experienced cannabis consumers looking for a new way to discover products, look no further than the Cannabiscope Wheel. Civilized caught up with co-founders David Schachter and Paul Shockley to learn how the idea came to them, what they hope for the future of the company, and how cannabis industry folk and consumers are already benefiting from the service. How did you get the idea for Cannabiscope?I had the idea while on vacation in Amsterdam in 2014 when I heard author Doug Fine (who's now an advisor to Cannabiscope) speak at the High Times Cannabis Cup.

Can we see some ID please?
