Craigslist Toronto Weed Dealing Growing

The number of postings by Craigslists’ weed dealers that use “420” as code for the friendly stranger has gone up dramatically since The Mernahuana Zone purchased pot live during the weekly webcast. One brave dealer was offering 420 Shatter, but most remain committed to slinging cannabis.

It’s encouraging to see TMZ’s influence on the local scene. Remember, we’re just reporting marijuana news by engaging in gonzo journalism tactics. A story about people selling cannabis on Craigslist requires someone to go out and buy cannabis. A reporter needs to find out if this is legit and it is!

Obviously more weed dealers have become inspired after watching how easy it is. I’ve been sending out regular tweets to highlight our amazeball journalism. In terms of risk assessment, it’s almost unfathomable the Toronto police would pose as a weed dealer to sell half ounces all day. Maybe in places like Hamilton, Vaughan, or Oshawa where cops have way too much time to cook up a scheme that has little actual results.

The weed dealer is the trafficker and the purchaser is the possessor.Therefore the person buying cannabis from Craigslist would be charged with the lowly crime of possession of marijuana. It’s the random stranger weed dealer who is taking all the risk. Both sides could get ripped off, but let’s keep it honest out there. As mayor I would put bad weed dealers in stocks at city hall.

Craigslist appears to wait for their clientele to flag ads, but one or three good ads might build a clientele list. I don’t know, but I think the next leg in our expose will be to interview a Toronto Craigslist weed dealer.

    “In terms of risk assessment, it’s almost unfathomable the Toronto police would pose as a weed dealer to sell half ounces all day.”
    The police in Canada cannot pose as dealers and bust people who buy from them. That is called entrapment. If someone offers to sell you drugs they are not a cop.

    I am gonna hafta agree with the post above. I mean I still applaud anyone who fights the good fight towards legalization, with the rest of us. However, I think that all Matt’s exposure has gone to his head. Lol I have tried to engage him in conversation at various legalization events, and he hasnt been the most approachable guy cuz I don’t have a camera or a live podcast show.Thats just the vibe i get.

    Mernagh is is such an ‘amazeball’ moron, and piss poor writer too. And him as mayor of anything (aside from his own deluded dreams) is never going to happen.
