You Can't Get in Trouble from Pics

  1. I found this out over the whole "Michael Phelps smoked marijuana" ordeal.

    Now the police are saying that they're not going to prosecute Michael, which is great. However, out of this whole ordeal I've learned something.

    This is a quote from the CNN article at:

    " 'We had a photo, and we had him saying he was sorry for his inappropriate behavior,' Lott said. 'That behavior could have been going to a party. ... He never said, 'I smoked marijuana.' He never confessed to that. We didn't have physical evidence. We didn't have enough where we could go arrest him.' "

    He's also not being prosecuted by the college. "University police and Columbia police both said they would not pursue charges against Phelps."

    So does this mean as long as you're not standing right next to a marijuana plant, any picture of you smoking or whatever else is fine? I've known TONS of people over the years that're afraid to post pictures of themselves drinking or smoking for fear of the "government" seeing them.

    I hope some people's apprehension about photos can be eased now.

  2. Yup?
    You didn't know that?
    I thought it was common knowledge...

    What are you talking about?
  4. Ha no no, I never had an issue posting pictures of myself doing whatever. But I see people on here all the time that have something in their sig like "I don't smoke weed. Everything I say is fictional" etc etc. Plus I've met a lot of people in the past that didn't know.

    I'm just posting some information for the uninformed...

  5. I understand.

  6. Dude, SEMS1, you look a lot like me man. Well, at least what I used to look like during wrestling season. Do you/did you wrestle at all?

  7. Nah bro, just hit up the weights when im bored, haha.
  8. I dont post pictures of me smoking for fear of the EMPLOYERS finding them. cause that would be gay.
  9. Lol and your employers are gonna search for "beamish" and find you on GC? It's probably not the smartest thing to be using a part of your name or something that can easily tie to you as your screen name on a marijuana forum anyways...

  10. Legally, in Michigan that picture wouldnt be useful unless there was a drug test involved or a witness said something, because it could simply be salvia or even
