DURANT, OK -- A 23-year-old man is accused of eating marijuana to hide it from the cops. That's what Durant police say 23-year-old Tony Pelayo did early Sunday morning.

Durant police were called to the Shady Brook Apartments on North 7th Street for a loud party. When officers arrived, they say they found two marijuana joints, which Pelayo quickly took. When asked by officers to hand them over, Pelayo said he couldn't because he ate the evidence. He then proceeded to show police a leafy green smile.

Pelayo was arrested for destroying evidence.

    Regardless of whether you enjoy it or not, legal or illegal, safer than alcohol or not... I used to work law enforcement and this POT head will be in and out of the CJ system, perpetually, spending all your hard earned money you pay in Taxes just so he can have a good time. If he wants to chill out & relax then he should smoke at home where he's safe and others are safe from any possible actions he might do that could possibly harm others.

    To: Bud Toker, When you open your "Starbuds" please include various sweet and salty munchies on the menu. I'll open a yoga gym next door so they can "burn" off the calories in an easy fashion.

    The Truth: I am your boss. Or could be. Professional in every way, and when I get home and the kids are in bed, my wife and I smoke. At work I have to debate doing random drug testing. I have to be a hypocrite and argue for it. Kills me. I have smoked for 25 years and never went to harder drugs. I am more in control than alcohol and if I run out, no big deal. The drug war on Pot is the biggest farce in our country, it should stop. It is literally a victimless crime, I am proof positive of that. What crime is involved could be removed by doing what was described below, legalize it. Alcohol abuse scares me 1000 x worse than pot. Anyone ever been abused by a pot smoker out of control? no. doesn't happen.

    Stupid? How stupid is a country that makes illegal an herb that has been used for thousands of years by humans and has a better track record of medicinal use than most modern pharmaceuticals. How stupid are people that attack some person, whom is being busted by a bunch of sick(if pot is medicinal, then it follows that those whom don't use it are sick)cops and the sick justice system behind them, whom would try to protect himself from false and sick laws by eating something that has been eaten for thousands of years. All I can say is "to hell with straight people". After all these years and all these arrests, it is obvious that "Free Country" IS as real as Bush's smile.

    Cant understand why people still argue about the legalisation of cannibis sativa. Its not going to happen. As with cancer and aids, there is more money to be made with "treatment" than there is in a "cure". Easiest cure would be to slap a tax on marijuana and sell it through government regulation. Many say: Oh, but what if some pothead get behind the wheel and kills somebody? I say: Ever heard of alcohol Jack? Still more say: Oh, but the crime rate. I say: You find me one substantial case of a pothead selling their body, stealing from their loved ones out of "need" to support their habit ( Does it happen, yes but these cases are people that have control and are therefore just common thieves ) I personally could care less. I know plenty of people that "toke", and to each their own. I smoked before becoming a parent and worrying about passing a drug test. I'm also an alcoholic who has 2 years without a drink. They have support groups for "Potheads"? No.... whats wrong with that picture?
