Half Baked, Wait, No, Totally Baked

Well, maybe we’d know the very first thing: Don’t get high on your own stash. We watch movies. We know what’s up. A little.

But one Fox Lake man apparently didn’t. Convinced strangers were peeking in his windows, John A. Pierce called the local police to report them. The cops didn’t find any spies, but they did find a bunch of marijuana plants growing in Pierce’s living room – plants he must have been smoking.

Dude was totally paranoid.

Pierce pleaded guilty to a Class Three felony, unlawful possession of 1.3 pounds of marijuana, and has been sentenced to 24 months probation. He must also pay $300 in fines and perform 200 hours of community service.
