Police Track Suspected Dealer on MySpace

MySpace isn't all about age restrictions to keep teens safe from sexual assaults. It turns out drug dealers love MySpace too! Michael Wayne Pilkerton, 20, of Suffolk was charged after police used an informant to make three marijuana purchases from him in recent months. Police said the investigation was launched in March after the man's brother used his MySpace Web page to boast of their homegrown marijuana crop and the frequency with which both men use marijuana. The page's creator, Jonathan Pilkerton, was not mentioned any further in a search warrant filed in Suffolk Circuit Court detailing the investigation last week.

taxes my friends... keep smokinnn, drinkinn, drivinnn, killinnnn.. but pay taxessssss. be so willing to keep that thought that you live it...... and u keep smonking and drinking and driving... but these drugs thing, being sooo out rulled, they must be cut, otherwise ppl starts to think against system rules [hacking burocracy]

yaa, for shure those guys were big idiots to put that on myspace, but that was some guy who knew this and shout it out loud, in a country with such laws... big mouth some have hein?? if someone want to do that way, just go live on spain were you can compete with your neighbour on how big yours is [lol]

still, you dont have yet to spent your cents on prescription drugs yet [biglool]

why dont they legalize use of marijuana, they will save them a lot of time and resources, if people want to poison them selves let them just like they allow smoking cigarettes

Corona is right

just like they allow smoking cigarettes and beer which are also drug'sbut have less waaaaaaaaaaayyyy less helpfull medical helping effect's then marijuana

What's there to be so proud of if you're a pothead? Nothing.

Potheads are people who are slowly weeding themselves out of existence. The police just helps speed up that process. I support what they do.

thats funny cause every next generation, more and more people are smoking pot. its only a matter of time before its gets legalized in America. starting with Nevada. last years poll was like 55/45 for against. thats pretty good considering all the anti-weed commercials the government likes to spew.

you can tell the people who never smoke pot cause you say all these 'facts' that the government likes to shove down your throat. smoking weed doesnt make you unproductive unless you smoke an ass of it all the time. pot doesn't hurt anyone and you cant say that about alcohol. prisons get over filled with non-criminals while people like murders and rapist run around cause the police are too busy chasing half of the world for smoking pot. prohibition of marijuana is about as useful as prohibition of alcohol was. it just causes more trouble then good.

yeah its true. not only dont they hurt people but they plain just... dont do anything.

hmmm maybe its just me , but when im stoned im more active and can concentrate more on projects , be it art or music or just generally building websites or even going out for a nice long free ride on my bike , guess i must be alone out there huh

haha I'm enjoying college with my B average hanging out enjoying life with the ultimate safe relaxant. People should talk to the guy that grows it but doesn't sell it he will teach you who does nothing and has no life probably give some good conversation to.

i agree to and i NEVER done any drugs in my entire life.

cause really... pot/weed aint all THAT bad... it aint nearly as serious as the more hard drugs like cocaine/crack/heroin etc etc are.

police would be more "usefull" if they went after the more serious stuff and stead of wasting resources on the petty crap like weed etc. but then again what do you expect, after all they are "cops", *cough*pigs*cough* lol ... half the time all cops do is screw people over anyways.... im speaking about the "average" cop.... all they do is write people tickets and they wonder why the general public dont like cops all that much... especially that seatbelt law in michigan ... there commercials "claim" it saves lives (which they obviously do) but in reality they just say that so on the surface it looks good, when in reality there just doing it to make more money for government... it's pretty obvious to since here and there they have cops patroling near the mall/populated areas just trying to screw people over for something that should be THERE CHOICE! not the government FORCING the public to wear seatbelts.... cause really, if they where trying to "serve the public" they would be out trying to do stuff that actually benefits the public like getting criminals off the streets the ones who murder people/rape people etc etc, basically the SERIOUS stuff not the petty bs crap that no one cares about.

ill stop going off now... but i think i do have a pretty good point
