Seriously, just don't

Alright people. We've said this before, and we can't believe that we're finding ourselves saying it again. There are some jobs that it's perfectly acceptable to take a portion of their duties onto yourself. One of those jobs is not the job of a police officer, specifically if that duty is chasing down someone who may or may not be a thief.

Oh, and this should go without saying, but that goes double if the thief stole marijuana from you.

A Pennsylvania man was recently reminded of this truism after he was pulled over for speeding, and subsequently arrested for the amount of drugs still within his car. Oh yes, he was still driving around enough recreational drugs to keep some college kids entertained for awhile, split between baggies full of pot and ecstasy tablets. On the plus side, when he was pulled over by the police, at least he was honest about why he was speeding. Not the brightest bulb, really, but at least he told the truth.

Oddly enough, another somewhat dim bulb came to our attention today as well. But hey, why should we expect the Department of Energy to be able to hold themselves to their own rigorous energy conservation rules?

After all, those rules are tough, man.
