    Another genius trying to get on the island illegally. Guy must have let the cheese slide off his cracker to try that with a load of dope. But who was he delivering to?

    Good work Sheriff’s Office !

    Big Bernie Sanders supporter. Any surprise? When one is 61, hauls weed onto a guarded island, and supports the “Free Stuff for Everyone” candidate, it speaks volumes about the brainpower.
