    did you sell to an undercover? a friend of mine was just busted at 4:20 Festival for doing this. given, he's a dumbass, and i'm not calling you one, but i've heard of similar cases very recently. lots of narcs going around.

    i'd say just stay away from the e anyway. e is for girls.

    How in the fuck do you get busted for a pill in a crowd of thousands? Clearly you were being a retard. Coachella needs less retards. Congratulations police.

    Be smarter next time and you won't have this problem, everyone else that did drugs that didn't go to jail got away with it and some how YOU got busted. Any time someone at a festival comes up to me and says "do you know where i can get some E", no matter how cool they look or young or whatever the answer is always the same, NO!!! The guy who got busted rolling a joint in his car is dumb too, why wouldn't you roll your joint in your hotel room or tent or wherever the fuck you are staying. Quit bitching get smarter about your drug use and stay out of jail.

    I saw hardly any cops this year. Especially in the campsite. I am used to seeing a ton of pigs up on their horses when we went in but I didnít see any horses. And in the festival I only saw like 6 cops over the whole weekend. If you are discrete you will be fine. Just donít be a flaunting e-tard and you wont get caught.

    the horsiecops are my favorite. always so polite. they're only there for riot crowd control, which hardly ever is necessary. last year i was terrified that one of them was a policeman centaur. he reassured me that he was not, in fact, a "centaur" and told me that i might want to get some rest. lol

    I'm guessing that you got caught with pills that you were selling or trying to sell, thus the felony? If that is the case distribution is much different than using and I'm fairly sure that is what the cops were probably on the prowl for. Unless you were tossing them up in the air and catching them in your mouth like Cheetos how in the world would they know you had pills? Either way, that's pretty ridiculous... don't blame cops for doing their job.

    Now, I'd like clarification on the people who were busted with weed, especially if they had a prescription card valid in the State of California... unless those were DEA agents wouldn't they have to abide by the state approved prescription cards? Also, I thought partaking in marijuana was now a "ticketable offense" in the state of California? They still haul people to jail for simple possession?

    With that said, I didn't do any drugs... but I sure as crap saw a ton of people lighting up joints, pipes and even bongs throughout the entire weekend pretty openly.
    Nothing can stop me now...

    You know they didn't even pat anyone down at the gates, at least the times I walked in. You could carry whatever you wanted into the place. You could have probably snuck in a 12 pack under your shirt and nobody would have stopped you, with one exception...

    If you're trying to "sneak" stuff in and avoid being caught, can you please NOT wear the t-shirt with the pot leaf and show up already stoned at the gate?

    Furthermore, people were walking around smoking actual bongs in the open.

    If you got busted, you did something in public. Nobody was following you into the portapotty, or even around the corner out of the MAIN FREAKING CROWD.

    I was shocked how laxed the searches were actually.

    I actually noticed more cops than usual, but it sure didn't stop me from smoking my joints. I almost feel bad for the cops who have to bust people for weed- it IS their job, regardless of right or wrong, and it's so so easy to keep your pot smoking out of their sight that it's almost unfair to the cops to do it in the open.

    my coachella weed rules:

    always roll in the campground or otherwise before entry

    always smoke DURING a performance, in a crowd.

    whatever you are bringing in, simply tape it to the inside of your thigh. as it happens, I wasn't even patted down once, but why take a chance or put the security guard in that awkward situation when it's so easy to avoid?

    I was wearing shorts, not too baggy, with no shirt and was able to sneak a 20 oz full of soco down my shorts.
    And those shorts are already at a shortage of realestate, but it still wasn't difficult. Getting busted just means your an idiot or extremely unlucky.
    either way.. you broke the law.. don't be shocked when you're punished.

    If he's being charged with a felony there's much more to the story than him rolling a single joint.

I've read some of the other posts talking about narcs floating around the Sahara tent. Well, let me tell you, they were right. I got busted with E, (at a Rave? Crazy...) and I got locked up. I'm looking at a pretty major felony. I sat in jail all Friday with a colorful cast of characters that were eventually transferred to make room for all the Coachellians. One kid that was in there had been in there for over 10 hours AFTER he had made bail for having weed brownies... I found out later over 20 kids were arrested, all for similar, minor offenses.

    Another case stood out as being even more outrageous! One of my cellmates had been caught rolling a joint IN HIS CAR when one of the task force pricks, flashed the badge, and pulled him out of his car. He had a medical card on him and they proceeded to tell him his CA STATE ISSUED card didn't apply in Riverside County. Last I checked, Riverside was still in CA. BFE yes, but still Cali. He spent 10 hours in jail as well and is being charged with a felony to boot!

    I am quite aware that drugs are illegal but filling a jail with concert goers seems counterproductive to the entire spirit of Coachella. It's held in that waste of a city to bring the desert income. Ease up on the aggressive, needless enforcement. Or at the very least, get a real dealer as opposed to someone smoking a joint...

    Peace out Coachella, it was fun while it lasted.
    Breaking a law is breaking a law dude, regardless of what it is. You're basically saying that the drug use at chella isn't a serious offense and shouldn't really be that hammered on by the police, and I agree with you. But that's an opinion. And opinions differ depending on who you talk too. Because of that, the law has to act against all crimes equally to eliminate bias. I'm not saying they all get the same punishment, but they all get treated with the same level of seriousness or something like that.

    The police are just doing their job man.

    Banning is one of the cities along the I-10 leading into the Coachella valley from LA, about 40 miles from Palm Springs. Banning is considered a redneck town by people in the valley, I've worked in that area a few times, sure was white as hell.

    Good god, how old are you retarded fucks? You know nothing of the criminal justice system.

    You're not facing a major felony; they're going to offer you a plea deal and you will take it. Your charge will be reduced to a misdemeanor and you will have a fine somewhere in the range of $300-500, with the possibility of having it removed from your record after a 3-6 month stretch on probation. Maybe a drug class too, but that's about it. And your 10-Hour weed buddy will get even less. Stop crying.

    I stiill think this dude left out a large part of the story.

    if he was busted for chopping mdma, he could be facing a felony.

    but that's what you get for selling pills inside a festival.

    this is probably a really unpopular thing to say, but the cops at Coachella are all way cool. they let people get away with just about anything as long as you don't shove it in their face. there comes a point where they can't look the other way, and they have to do their jobs.

    even in that video of the naked dude getting tazed, at the beginning, you hear the cops tell him to put his clothes on and they'll let him go on his way, but he tosses his clothes aside defiantly. they've got to step in and do their job at that point.

    bottom line: be minimally discrete and you can get away with just about any non-violent action at coachella.

    i also think the idea that "obviously people are gonna do drugs at Coachella" = "the police should allow people to break the law" is stupid. For such obvious reasons that i won't elaborate.
