Don’t EVER get caught in Indiana with fake pot. It’s a stark reminder of the steep cost, in both human suffering and otherwise, of prohibition. An Indiana man has been sentenced to 12 years in prison for dealing K2 (often misleadingly called “synthetic marijuana”). K2, also known as Spice, is actually much more dangerous than the real stuff.
Tyler Berry, 22, was arrested in Posey County, Indiana, reports WFIE. During a traffic stop last April, a K9 dog picked up the scent of the K9. (Cops insist upon calling them “K9 officers” in their press releases, but that’s just so they can charge your with more serious crimes if anything happen to the dogs.)
Berry was arrested at the scene five months ago, and has been in the Posey County Jail ever since.
The cops say Berry admitted to possessing more than 28 grams of “synthetic marijuana,” commonly marketed as K2. They also say he had the monumental bad judgment to tell them he intended to distribute what is now an illegal drug.
At this point, in fact, it would be hard to find any advantage whatsoever to the possession and consumption of K2 instead of weed. (You’re going to get in just as much trouble for it, if not even more.) That is, if it weren’t for the predictable one excerpt upon. That is the singular scenario where one is about to be drug-tested for the presence of THC metabolites. In that case, it’s not going to show up as THC.
Young Berry will now be transported “on the chain” to the Indiana Department of Corrections, where he’ll be staying for quite a spell.
Did I mention, don’t EVER get caught in Indiana with fake pot?
