High Times Writer Nabbed in Pot Bust
    #488516 - 10/16/10 06:39 PM (7 years, 1 month ago)

http://www.nbcnewyork.com/news/local-beat/High-Times-Writer-Nabbed-in-Pot-Bust--105097879.html


So much for the high life.

Cops busted a writer for marijuana magazine High Times along with 45 other people, including a man behind a major hip-hop label, for allegedly operating a multi-million dollar pot ring.

Police arrested magazine writer Matthew Woodstock Stang and Kareem Burke, who founded Roc-a-Fella records along with Jay-Z and Damon Dash, in the federal takedown.

Prosecutors say the marijuana was grown hydroponically in Florida and smuggled to New York for sale. Stang was allegedly the guy who supplied the marijuana to the man who ran the pot ring, identified as Geovanny "Manny" Rodriguez Perez.

"In the case of the High Times employee, it's a case of art imitating real life," Jim Hayes, a special agent who heads Homeland Security Investigations for Immigration and Customs Enforcement, told the New York Post.

Federal agents say they seized $2 million and more than 360 pounds of marijuana in the bust. Hayes said authorities would centralize their efforts on ensuring competing pot networks don't use the same methods to ship marijuana across state lines.

Stang was released on $500,000 bail and ordered to wear a monitoring bracelet. High Times didn't return the Post's requests for comment. Burke was remanded after his arraignment.

yeah but by advertising it helps bring more attention to Cannabis in our country, that's kind of a good thing right now imo.:lol:

Issue number 420 is coming up I think, I wonder if it'll be good.

i like their pictures.  :lol:  Anymore all the information that goes into the mags is FROM the internet.  just like you said.  I think that if you do some interesting experiments and really document the shit out of them online (with great pics) you can get noticed and asked to contribute to the magazines.  I've seen it happen many times actually.  it's a great fucking thing!
