Idaho Man Tries to Trade Weed for Fast Food, Winds Up in Jail Instead

Reports Civilized .

Idaho resident Brian Starliper, 22, was taken into custody by Idaho Falls police earlier this week after Starliper allegedly went on Facebook and offered to trade a gram cannabis wax to anyone willing to deliver him a meal from the local McDonald’s or Burger King. However, instead of seeing a friendly face at his door with a paper bag containing burgers and fries, local police showed up at Starliper’s home with a search warrant.

When police searched Starliper’s home they found 10 grams of cannabis and cannabis concentrates, a gram of cocaine and drug paraphernalia. Police charged Starliper with possession of a controlled substance and possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute at the time of his arrest. The marijuana-related charges alone could see Starliper with a fine of as much as $51,000 and a two-year prison sentence (assuming he was charged with intent to distribute the weed and not the cocaine) and an additional 7 years and a fine of up to $15,000 for possession of the gram of cocaine.
