I think it’s happening.
It’s no longer happening. It’s happened.
The more I tried to draw that pot, the more it looked like julienned vegetables. I know it looks totally wrong, but I had to move on. I may come back and fix it one day.
There are bigger problems in life – especially for a former prosecutor – than not being able to draw a bag of pot well.
(Cue all of the people who have…ahem, “experience” with pot chiming in with “advice.”)
This might be a repeat, but I take it the lesson learned is that if everyone involved had just gone with the flow (and the baggie had stayed in the car) then none of this would have happened. Patty would have known why Jake was freaking out if she could have smelled pot on Jake; this suggests that she couldn’t, which in turn suggests that the cops wouldn’t have it either.
“They’re smuggling pureed skunk! Get the rubber gloves…”
Yeesh, just dump it on the ground and let them go.
That wouldn’t teach the narrative’s lesson that Jake was an idiot.
And that Patty’s reputation/record might be collateral damage.
I know that the penalties for littering have been getting tougher, but this seems a bit extreme to me =P
