Best crime story of the week! - NADINECUETO VIA FLICKR

Dude! Free pot in San Jose. Police are scrambling to find pedestrians and motorists who snatched up bags of marijuana that fell from a truck illegally carrying it through the South Bay.

According to the Mercury News, the trucker was transporting the pot when he crashed near Oakridge Mall in San Jose, sending the bags of weed flying into the intersection.

Naturally, the frightened trucker was worried about what this might mean for him, so he ran off, fleeing the scene as ecstatic bystanders grabbed for the pot in a drug free-for-all.

Most of the bags of pot were taken before police got there, however the cops did find more marijuana inside the truck along with a handgun.

What they haven't found are the trucker and the dozens of bystanders who are, no doubt, at home getting high.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
