Last year on friday I was having a hell of a time. I was drinking and was not thinking too well when I took a hit off my pipe in the middle of the lawn. Some dude in a Heinekin shirt came up to me and asked for a bud. I said no cause I only had brought so much in. He was beging me and I said fine and I gave him the tinest bud. The dude said let me pay for it. I said no, I don't sell pot I just smoke it. he started saying it was only fair he paid for the bud, and that he was not a mooch and tried to give me 20 bucks for the tinest bud. and just for a half second I thought about taking it but instead I said no away man, enjoy.and walked away. Next thing I know some dude grabing me saying Im under arrest. I didn't see any badge so i was like hell no, let go of me. I had a group of people around me asking me if I needed help until he showed his badge. Next thing I know I have two guys on each side of me and one guy behind me escorting me out of the event. I kept saying I did nothing wrong why was I being arrested. He said it was for selling drugs. I said noway I am innocent and I have done nothing wrong. So we make to a tent and the keeps saying they are going to book me for selling. They empty out my pockets and take my bud. I said I need that back please. That is my medicine as I am a medical marijuana patient. They just laughed, then asked me what my condition was, I said none of your buisness and they said they just wanted to protect themselves. I told they didn't have to worry. I said if you take my meds I will just goto the despensery in Palm Spring and get more. He said they shut them all down ( a lie cause I got some more the next day). So some cop lady comes over and starts asking a bunch of questions saying again they are going to book me for selling I said I don't understand how as I did not take any money. as I am sitting there the cops are talking about how they get a free room and how they are going party later lol. anyway the lady comes back and started saying your very lucky they are not going to book me just give me a ticket. Well as I had my paper work from my doctor they could only write me a ticket for furnishing. I asked them if they would escort me back into the show. They laughed at me. So as I leave the tent i go to where I was escorted out. Some securtiy guard was there I told him what happened and showed him my used ticket sub, I still cant believe it but he let me back in. I was stressed the rest of the night as I didnt know what furnishing was going to cost me. When I get back to my room I realize its only a 100 fine. and when I went to court my public defender said it was complete BS that he has never seen anyone with that charge and the DA through it out. Tho I did have to admit to the court that the cops had reason to arrest me and pay a 100 dollar court cost which was great cause I do not want anything on my record. Anyway I just want to warn anyone who will listen. also bewary of anyone wearing the sponser clothing. All three of those cops had on Heinekin shirts/hats. Those cops tried to entrap me, had I taken the money he was shoving in my face I would have gotten 1-3 years. NARCS SUCK .. B CAREFUL

fuck dude, same thing happened to my older brother last year!

he was smoking the one joint he had and these two guys asked if they could buy it, he said no of course and just tried to give it to them but they persisted in buying it.
So after the guys pushing him to let them give him money he was like whatever fuck it and took like 10 bucks and was immediately arrested.

Right before MSTRKRFT, BUsy P, Dj Mehdi, Justice, and LCD.

The acts he was most excited for.

So he gets taken away, mutters something about killing himself since he missed the only acts he wanted see, so they put him on fucking suicide watch in the jail. I cant recall the full story right now, but he was in there over night and couldnt call until the morning. My girlfriend and I waited in the parking lot for like 3 hours for him. Luckily i had the keys, we ended up leaving and heard about the arrest in the morning.

Luckily he found a good lawyer in Palm Springs and ended up getting the charges either dropped or greatly reduced.


So yeah, be warned, dont talk to anyone about your pot, especially if they want to buy it.

Last year, early in the day, a couple comes up to my boyfriend and I. They said they got their bags stolen along with their i.d. They asked us if they could have our 21+ wrist band and we could just go get another. I was VERY hesitant. We told them sorry, that we waiting in a long line to get it etc. An hour later we saw them in the beer garden with Coachella STAFF shirts on. Seems suspicious to me, but maybe they were given those cause their clothes were stolen?

Anyway, yeah be VERY careful. Alot of undercover douches....

That sucks!!! You got off easy because of your medical recomendation. Last Aug. My cousin got pulled over by the cops, just 2 blocks from his house. They search his car and find his buds. They booked him and he had to go to court. The judge verified my cousin's recomendation and drops all charges and dissmised the case. If you have a recomendation, just have a copy of it on you and you should be ok, but use common sense. This is not Amsterdam!!! Don't go sparking a joint in front of a cop.

I like it when the undercover cops wear khaki shorts and white socks pulled all the way up with tennis shoes. And then especially if they're noticeably older than the average Coachella-goer, and have a very clean-cut hairstyle. Makes it easy/fun to spot them.

Man, it is just ridiculous how local cops totally disrespect California law permitting medical marijuana. It usually gets thrown out in court but cops just love to harass people who legally are possessing medication. Good suggestion from the poster that suggested carrying a copy of your recommendation with you at the event. Might help, who knows?

JustSteve
01-23-2008, 03:09 PM
i'm guessing it's not legal to walk around smoking it wherever you want, possession is fine.

01-23-2008, 03:45 PM
Yeah just be smart out there. Don't do shit in the outskirts of crowds. You want to be deeeeep in them. I saw a couple of guys get arrested last year and their acting skills were very lacking especially when faded. I like when they come out in groups from the corner of the outdoor stage. Their "outfits" look soooo rad! Like a safari or something.

But seriously there are some really bored and dumb cops out there. I wish they'd just leave everyone alone and have SUITED cops around so you know who is who. This baiting shit is really pathetic and actually causes MORE danger when people are getting chased through crowds...

TRUST NO ONE.

Nah, the jail there isn't too bad. Some guy in the joint said the downtown palm springs one is where the real crazies are. Just expect to sleep on a cement floor for a night and try to have a way to get home when they kick you out of jail the next morning. Don't beat anyone up and you'll be sitting with other druggies and drunks hassle free. Anything violent and they'll put you in a very cramped bathroom sized room in an orange jumpsuit. And don't make friends.

seriously, unless your drug activities at a concert take place in the middle of a crowd, you're asking for trouble. I don't get the impression that coachella wants to bust everyone for drugs (given the ease with which I was able to take e and spliffs through security), but they don't want to have drug use obvious to the casual observer. be discrete, and it'll help them out too. if the cops have a quota to keep up, let them bust the dumbasses

I've seen stuff like these stories happen in every year of Coachella. One year a buddy got arrested because two hot chicks asked him for a hit off of his joint. Of course he said yes, they were very hot. Then they offered him 20 bucks, he said no... but he was also talking to another person, then one of the girls comes back with a $20 in her hand and hands it over to my buddy. He just grabbed it, who wouldn't grab a $20 bill from a hot chick. Less than 3 seconds later he got pulled out of the crowd in the Sahara tent and handcuffed with those lame plastic things. He spent about 10 hrs in jail. Since he wasn't a citizen or resident or anything like that, the cops let him go with a warning (lucky for him)

Moral of the story:

Don't do drugs at the festivla (you probably won't pay attention to this part)

If you are going to do drugs, do it on your own or with people you know. Don't share with strangers.

They probably wouldn't because they have bigger fish to fry (other people commiting more serious crimes like "selling" drugs") but you never know. You might come across some douche bag who just wants to arrest somebody, then you will get in trouble.

Last year on Friday night, right before Marley, I think, I took a hit off of my pipe and handed to the dude next to me. My radar is usually honed in looking for cops, but I must have been a bit off because as I blow out the smoke I look up and there are 3 County Sheriffs hovering over me. The guy who was in charge looked down at me, smiled, and said "puff, puff, give!" and walked away. I shit you not. The county Sheriffs all seemed pretty cool, but the city cops are assholes.

The next day I must have let my guard down because they found one small bud on me as I entered the show through security. I didn't even know I had it, as it was in the coin pocket of my pants and it was so freakin small. It was leftover from the night before. Anyway, the security guy finds it and walks me over to the local cop. I break out my perscription and show it to him and the cop just laughs in my face. He takes the bud, takes the ticket, gives me a shit-eating grin and says "bye bye" and kicks me out of the show. Fortunately, I scalped another ticket for $50 and was back inside within half an hour.

Moral of the story; County Sheriffs are pretty cool and not there to just fuck with people. Local cops are redneck fucks.

Who gives a fuck if they smoked it or not. The point is he got arrested for taking money after sharing drugs. You want to take it up with the cops and get technical about it, then go ahead and try it out yourself.

Yeah I nearly got busted by some under cover cops right before Tiesto. I think the only thing that saved me is that I kept telling them I didn't want any money for the joint I had just given them (that'll teach me) and then I moved to a different spot as soon as the dj started up.

I'm gonna jump on the band wagon too. Not gonna share any of my shit this time around, even though last year I ended up splitting a joint with some pretty rad ladies who were very excited about Benny Benassi.

"Just say NO" now has a whole new meaning for me, brilliant.

NOTE: PAY VERY CLOSE ATTENTION TO HOW YOU SHOULD SAY NO. Remember, these are fucking cops you're dealing with. That article stresses the exact phrasing of "I do not consent to any warrantless search" heavily. If a cop is TELLING you to open your trunk regardless of you having stated that you do not consent to a search, make it clear that you are not refusing to obey his instructions or resisting, but that you want to be clear that you do not consent to the search. If they invent or have PC, they can make you do whatever the fuck they want anyway and refusing to comply will be obstruction, and then you're fucked.

Good way to get rolled up.

I hear back in the old days they'd look at shoe color...Brown was a no-no.

But it's pretty easy for an undercover to grow long hair (or wear a weave).

In fact, I watched a federal bust go down the other day in the next apartment complex, and the back-escape cover team members had long hair & handlebar moustaches...looked like bikers...so you can't always tell by looks.

I have an easy solution to all of this: use your head. Limit your smoking to inconspicuous locations, not in the middle of the food vendors. And if it comes to it, don't share. Obviously, 16 year olds aren't cops, but we can see that hot chicks and long-haired bikers can be. Don't share and you won't run into problems.

If people want to smoke weed, they should bring some and not mooch off of those who came prepared.

It was a great movie. But being searched by hands like that would be terrible

Michel Gondry is the reason I think Christopher Walken will be a surprise add with Fatboy Slim

It was an extremely interesting movie. The dream sequences are absolutely breath-taking.

I remember when I saw it in theaters, I had some wine and I THINK a bar, so I was a little sloshed, but when that white stripes song came on ("instinct blues") I totally jumped up in my chair

If the person asking for weed has short hair, don't do it.

If the person asking for weed has long hair, do it.

That's how I almost got fucked in SLC at the Greyhound station...bad rule...

07'- My bf and I were entering the gates to the fest on Sun from the campgrounds, there was no line because it was mid-day. He had just hidden a small amount of white powder in a vile and stuck it in his shoe... we got to the gates and sure enough they decided to check his shoes. the security shoved his hand in my bf's shoe deep enough to pull out the vile, security took him over to the side and called over some more security, they asked him what it was (cocaine) and decided to just take his ticket away instead of cuffing him... could have been a lot worse but missing Rage for him was a heartbreaker, he had to hear it from the campgrounds, not enough money to scalp another ticket, soooo horrible. He was wearing bulky etnies skate shoes and since there was no one around in line they had time to fully search people like that i guess...but in conclusion let you gf stash all of the drugs because I had acid in my shoes (also sneakers) along with various substances hidden within my bikini top and fanny pack and they never touched me...

New rule: Only sell/give someone weed only if you saw them smoking it first! Always keep it on the DL. I always light up a Cigarette when smoking pot so if anything happens I hide the shit and go about my bizznazz like Im kick'n it watching the band!!

almost go arrested in that giant circle thing that spirals inwardm you know if you were there, anyway just sitting there smoking, i had a ridiculous amount of weed (not going to say how much cause you'll just say that i am stupid, which looking back on it omfg bad idea) but i was going to trade it for k at the place with my friend who i could not meet before, anyways, cops roll in there all quick like i stashed the weed in an empty gatorade bottle before they came, when i saw cops i put it in my bag and started walking away leaving my bag for some weird fucking reason that im now happy for, cops stops me cause he said he saw me smoke some "maji-huana", he said it just like manu chao, and had reason to search me anyways he cuffed me and then searched me i didnt have anything in my pockets thank god, they didnt search the backpack i asked if they were charging me with anything they seemed frustrated took like 3 other people in that place away along with some fatchick who tried to make a run for it and totally got tackled it was intense, but they finally let me go (i was pretty drunk cant really remember too well its been almost a year) but i do remember standing up and being uncuffed and right as i got my hands free, arcade fire blaring in the backround just started playing rebellion(lies), it was rather monumental.


all i ever saw were cops making people put out their pipes and putting out the bowl on the grass, then smashing it into the grass. dunno.

Also be aware of the blue and yellow-shirted concert staff. In 2006 we had just gotten inside and were sitting in the shade watching Matisyahu, and this curmudgeon in a blue shirt with a headset came up and took our joint and was trying to radio for cops, but she got no response so she ground it out with her foot.

I totally remember the shrinking spiral of fun. Man, what a nice surprise that was. Thanks to the guy who smoked out my friend and I.

I've never seen anyone arrested. a few years back my friends got caught smoking their shit, and they just took it away from them.

He did direct it :) You know you could always put it in a deodorant stick, just twist the solid up,cut it to just a little piece, hide your stash in a plastic baggie (outside the one that is containing said stash) stuff it in, and then replace the deodorant. This helps with concealing it's smell as well. I worked at the airport here in reno, as a bartender/waitress I'm full of stories that would horrify you if terrorists figured out half the shit as us crafty party peeps!
