A Virginia Drug Dealer Accidentally Texted A Police Officer Instead Of His Buyer

Sometimes dialling the wrong number can go really wrong, as a North Virginia man recently found out. In an attempt to sell some weed he accidentally texted a police officer instead of his buyer, and the rest is history.

New phone, who dis? A person texted one of our officers offering to sell them marijuana, and obviously had the wrong...

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.

So, maybe don't jump right into the marketing pitch when you text a new number for the first time.

Latest.

Nowadays, would your parents still be upset if they caught you consuming cannabis? Parents these days have much more progressive opinions on cannabis, and perhaps if they caught their kids consuming, they wouldn't necessarily punish them. While some parents still want their children to wait until the legal age to consume (if they choose to do so, at all), others don't believe it would be the end of the world if they "caught" their kids smoking pot earlier than that.

Can we see some ID please?
