Seeking People Busted for Weed for Public Art Piece

February 5th, 2009 · 2 Comments

We came across this odd listing in the Missed Connections sections of Craigslist. Have you been busted for weed? This person wants to talk to you for a pubic art piece in which you will no doubt be on video talking about how you were locked up at Central Booking or the Tombs forever before mom and/or dad bailed you out:

Marijuana Stories – 24 (Brooklyn)

I am doing research for a public art piece that will reflect some of the issues with current marijuana laws. I’m looking for people who would be willing to contribute their stories about marijuana-related arrests.

Hurry, busted weed smokers. This one expires soon.

    A minor comment:

    Was never busted for weed, but here’s a question: doesn’t anyone ever use the word “pot” anymore?

    haha, i agree that marijuana isn’t the word that i would use in the day-to-day conversation. but when i posted that note on craigslist (yeah, that was me) i thought “pot stories” might not be specific enough.
