Text mistakenly sent to cop leads to arrest in New Jersey

SPARTA, N.J. » Authorities say a New Jersey man mistakenly sent a text message to a police detective to set up a drug sale and now faces charges.

Authorities say a detective received the text message on his new cellphone Friday night. The sender had said he had a quarter pound of marijuana for sale and wanted to meet at a pizza parlor.

Nicholas Delear Jr., of Sussex, met later that night with an undercover police officer but fled when he became suspicious. Police soon stopped his vehicle, but the 33-year-old Delear refused to consent to his vehicle being searched.

Authorities obtained a warrant after a police dog detected drugs in the vehicle. They found four plastic bags containing marijuana and other paraphernalia.

Yes, this guy is a babooze. But if this happened, considering the mathematical odds of this happening, the number of drug dealers must be staggering. We need to legalize this plant so that we may tax and regulate it. It would take the profits away from these criminal enterprises. These drug trade is also linked to property theft. Monies spent to enforce marijuana laws would be better used for other things. We are fooling ourselves if we think that this plant is a rare commodity. It is very common and is the vehicle for criminal enterprises to prosper.
