It was a relatively good read.
I'm still not clear as to whether if they had searched, would they have found anything?
I don't think so. The OP was really reaching for a "cool story bro" reaction. Therefore, he does not do drugs, at least not good ones.
It actually sounds like you "made" a thief, not a police officer.
On Friday night this kid came up and asked for a light. He pulled out a well rolled joint, and he lights his shit. He bolted. He didn't offer me or my party a hit; he didn't even say thank you. I start my rhetoric about the declining values of the millennium drug user. I am interrupted by the dude's friend with the same well rolled, poorly lit, and fragrant marijuana cigarette. He asks for a light, states that his bro is an idiot, and, he too, bolts without offering up a hit or a thank you. Frankly I was amazed.
That is terrible drug etiquette.
Fake narcs are worse. There was a crew going around the South East in 2004-2005 and they would rock fake badges and go on and on about how if you just handed over the contraband there wouldn't be any trouble. So many kids got scammed.. Word got around and people wised up. Pretty sure they caught a beating.
Hahahaha yes!! Fuck the police.
Good rule of thumb: never buy drugs from someone wearing running shoes.
Normally I say fuck anyone trying to bum or buy drugs in the fest. Bring your own party supplies but I'm coming from Texas dammit.
I won't be packing my running shoes...
im a music photographer, i covered ultra this year but unfortunately didnt get the accreditation for coachella but hopefully this year itll all go through. already got weekend 2 tickets for both ultra and coachella, sucks so bad coming from overseas because everyone is a stranger! maybe now ive introduced myself someone will wanna be my friend? haha
It's okay if a narc pets your pecker, right? As long as you hide the drugs?
I had a guy come up to me outside Sahara tent and ask me if I "was selling pills" I just told him to go ask someone with glow sticks. I didn't even bring drugs.
Yes....this did happen a lot more last year. I would say it has a lot to do with the VERY young crowd that seems to have taken up the majority as of recent. If i had a dollar for ever little tween i saw puking off the sides of the Sahara tent or incoherently slouching over alone in the middle of a heavily trafficked/walk through area, I'd be able to buy everyone at coachella a beer. EVEN DROGAS COME WITH RESPONSIBILITY<3
Had a guy walk into our campsite last year, sit down like he owned the place, and ask of we were looking for Molly.
He made chit-chat for a minute but by the look of him, I could tell he was a cop.
We just told him no thanks, were good. We made him feel a little out of place and he left pretty quickly.
Late 40s, white, over weight, tie dyed shirt, bandana, trying way too hard to be selling Molly.
Hmmm.... if you can't spot a narc, then you probably shouldn't be bringing drugs to a festival anyway. If you're looking to buy drugs at a festival, you probably shouldn't have drugs. If you think you're going to want drugs, you'd better find them before you go, and kee.p them to yourself, and your company. Not to say I think there should be drugs at the festival.... but if I had drugs, and you asked to buy from me, I would almost definitely tell you I didn't know anything about any drugs. If you're cool, you might be able to find someone, but it's worth it to find what you think you'll need before the fest. You'll thank yourself later
Good advice, except it's pretty hard for people flying in to Palm Springs to find drugs outside the fest.
If you need any form of medication to enjoy the festival, then it will be worth it for you to rent a vehicle to drive to the festival, or go cold turkey. Herbs should be pretty easy to find in the area, considering how many medical patients there are locally, but if it's anything else, you'll want to bring it. If you're super friendly, you might be able to come across some good hookups in the campground, but I wouldn't count on it lol
i love trying to spot narcs at festivals. so many at edc vegas last year and just as obvious to spot.
i think he was just trying to rob you of your shit.
Its funny how some of you guys get repeated people walking up to you asknig for drugs, should tell you something about how you appear. I smoke joints left and right at my camp site and never have people come ask to buy. Hmm, maybe i should take that as a sign i dont look shady. Or I am just not paranoid.
Do people actually get booted from the festival for doing drugs
I found drugs there, but it was hard. On Saturday at least. On Sunday, walking back to camp from Dre, some chick ran up to my boyfriend and I, said "you guys look like a cute couple" and shoved a bag of shrooms in my hand, then proceeded to run off into the crowed. It was pretty awesome.
Yeah how are you supposed to find people or buy stuff before you get in if you are flying there?
Really? They stick drugs in your hand, run off and then come arrest you? That can't seem true....I'm pretty sure they were packing up camp, had left overs that they couldn't take on the plane and dished em out...
