Craigslist Ad Gets Duo Arrested For Weed For iPad Exchange Ad
By on June 13th, 2010

We would think that people are crazy, but you wouldn’t find crazier people than  those posting ads on Craigslist, the free classified site which has had it’s share of controversies over its existence.

iPad Craigslist Weed Exchange Ad

In a really stupid and almost "come-and-arrest-me" ad on Craigslist, two men posted an ad on Craigslist for an exchange. And what was the exchange the stupid guys posted? Take a look at the image above, the guys were trading in an iPod Touch in perfect condition (sane) + Weed or what they call DANK (high quality Marijuana) (insane) for an (OMG).

Oh yes, they posted this stupid ad just to get an iPad in exchange, this was surely one of the worst ways to get yourself arrested, and yes they did get arrested after a tipoff.

Once a tipoff was received by the cops, undercover cops responded to the ad and arrested two 20-year olds from Gilbert, Arizona after they were served up the dope in exchange for the iPad.

The dumbest part of all this is that those folks actually uploaded the image of the dope on a scale in the ad too. Oh and if you think that this was a dumb thing to do, we have even more dumber people out there in the world. Last year a criminal escaped from a Suffolk, UK prison and starting taunting the cops through Facebook, though he was eventually caught later, that was by far the most stupid thing to do.

And if you thought that the Internet was not a weird place, take a look at how a woman banged her head against a wall.. err vehicle and sued Google Maps.

    $299.00 for a brand new 32GB iPod Touch, $599.00 for the WiFi (non 3G) iPad. So this fellow wants you to pay $300 for a quarter of an oz? No one in their right mind would pay $300 for a quarter oz, there's no pot on earth that good. That's the stupid part in all of this :)
