Chane Behanan’s Arrest Draws Cheech and Chong Comparisons

Chane Behanan’s Saturday night arrest quickly became a quick punchline, one the Louisville Metro Police could not even resist.

The former University of Louisville forward and National Champion was arrested at a traffic stop on Seventh Street Road for possession of marijuana and a stolen firearm. A passenger in the vehicle, initial reports were sparse on details, aside from a stolen Sporter 7.62 AK-47 and the smell of marijuana.

Yesterday the LMPD’s social media accounts took some time to give a pat on the back to officers in the 4th Division.  It did not directly call out Behanan by name, but the details in the arrest match up with the Facebook post.  Pictures of property taken from the Saturday night Seventh Street arrest reveal a stolen AK-47 and quite a bit of marijuana.

Even if this post is not related to Behanan, the LMPD social media account manager deserves a raise for the line, “Cheech and Chong would be impressed at the amount of apparent weed smoke pouring out of the windows.”

    You know if you legalize Marijuana, the need of the black market value for it would diminish….. Just a thought… You would not have guys with stolen weapons to protect themselves from other criminals wanting to rob them with more stolen weapons… Instead of allowing it to happen, supply and demand of this so called “drug” would go away, just like the illegal sales of alcohol during prohibition went away when we started to regulate it and made it legal.

      Remember when he was using substances other then marijuana? Should those substances be legalized too? I don’t how it is now but it used to be that people using marijuana didn’t steal or carry weapons, it was usually people using and/or selling hard drugs. Plenty of people use marijuana illegally and don’t steal or carry weapons, especially automatic weapons. Some people just make bad decisions with and without drugs, whether they be legal or not.

      Drug dealers, even if they’re selling weed, carry guns to protect themselves against other criminals who might want to rob then because of how much their product is worth or because of how much money they are carrying. If you legalized marijuana, this would no longer be an issue and we wouldn’t have people getting shot over weed. You get the same thing with the harder drugs, but they aren’t safe for use like weed is. That’s why you wouldn’t legalize heroine or cocaine, but legalizing a substance like marijuana does not have many risks. Alcohol causes more issues than weed. Weed never liked anybody, got anyone in fights, caused domestic abuse, or cirrhosis. The only danger to it is that it’s illegal and those who deal in the world of illegal sh*t are at risk of violence. Legalize it and stop the violence. Now some would argue the slippery slope, that once weed is legalized, drug dealers will just move on to selling the harder substances. But that is not necessarily true. Young men like Bohannon are not into hard drugs. That’s too serious, high risk of a game for them. Some would still sell hard drugs, as the already do, and some who currently only sell weed would move to selling the other stuff, but not the majority. The supply of weed is so much greater than the other substances that it is much easier to obtain and sell. And less risky.

      I’m not opposed to legalizing marijuana, but to make the argument that that’s what made Chane a thief is ridiculous. I suppose you’d argue if it had been legal he wouldn’t have gotten kicked off the team more than once. I would argue marijuana could be legalized and Chane would still be a thief, marijuana being illegal is not his problem, his problem is HIM. Maybe if he got a real job he wouldn’t need to deal drugs. I’m guessing I’m older than you so you don’t remember the 70’s 80’s, but I knew of several people dealing drugs that didn’t carry automatic rifles and legalizing MJ is not going to stop violence. People will still get robbed and shot, and Chane will likelyt commit other crimes rather than become a responsible productive member of society because working a real job is jus too hard for guys like him.

    We really should legalize this plant that grows wild all over the place. It actually helps to kill cancer cells, prevents seizures, cures some people of anxiety, insomnia, etc. How many billions have we spent on the war on drugs, and yet everyone can still get whatever drug they want? Legalize it and tax it. Instead of billions in wasted expense, we get billions in revenue.

      From the great poet formerly of Lexington and Catawampus front man, Joel Crisp, “how do you make a plant illegal?” Indeed.
