Straight 'A' Student Got A Slap On The Wrist When She Was Caught Transporting Large Quantities Of Mushrooms And Meth
Oregon- An 18-year-old high school honor student who got caught with meth, ecstasy and a large quantity of hallucinogenic mushrooms during a West Linn traffic stop was sentenced Tuesday to three years on probation.
Police found 1.5 pounds of psilocybin mushrooms -- known as magic mushrooms -- and 67 capsules that contained meth or ecstasy – also called MDMA. Police also seized more than $1,600 in cash believed to be the proceeds from drug-trafficking.
The mother said Vesley graduated from high school early and when she turned 18 she came to Portland on her own. That's where she met Cady.
Vesley, now 19, was a straight A student who took calculus and advanced music classes in high school, took a leadership role at school and had done extensive community volunteer work, her mother said. "She's a model student and citizen," her mother said.
Vesley said she will start classes in the fall at Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland. "I want to follow my dream," she said.
I know a lot of people are going to say that this girl got off easy. That an 18 year transporting a shit load of hallucinogenics, most likely to people that aren't responsible enough to use them, should be charged as an adult and face jail time (Did I just imply that you could take hallucinogenics responsibly? I think I did. Oh well, what's done is done I suppose). However, those people don't realize the concept at play here. Intelligence, much like wealth, can buy you a lot of lee way. What I mean is, an 'A' student selling drugs is making bad decisions. A 'C' student selling drugs is an awful person. They say the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. That's because someone with a lot of money gives off the illusion of being trust worthy. That's similar to a smart person being given the benefit of the doubt, even when they do very stupid things. Ever been a part of, or witnessed a fight at school? Who do the teachers grab first? That's right, the kid that uses his fingers and toes to do simple arithmetic. Smart kids can start fights too, but generally speaking they get tagged as the innocent victim. With the youth of America becoming more and more brain dead by the day, apparently we are going to have to start overlooking when a kid with a 4.0 is hustling enough drugs to sedate a college dormitory. That GPA means a lot more than Grams Per Addict.
Don't overlook the fact that this bitch is heading to art school either. I'm pretty sure art school's don't play by the same substance rules that society does. My sister went to art school and was upset when she witnessed cocaine use at the first party she attended. I should have been smart enough to ship her a mirror and a bunch of rolled up $20 dollar bills (can't be snorting like a poor person). How can you maintain that creative edge if you are sober? Why do you think all comedians are borderline alcoholics? Regardless, narcotics and hallucinogenics are to art school what PED's were to baseball in the 90's. Technically illegal, but they make the product on the field, and on the canvas, so much better. I guess that also makes A-Rod's cousin a better family member than myself. He got his cousin a $200+ million dollar contract and all I did was make sure my sister didn't become a meth head. There's no financial security is being a clear headed photographer. That one's on me Katie. Seriously though, look at all the different art forms. There never been an innovative musician that wasn't abusing E more than Ari Gold. Van Gogh paintings still sell for like hundreds of millions of dollars. You think that motherfucker was sober when he cut his ear off? It's a thin powdery line between genius and overdose, and it appears Marin Kathryn Vesley is prepared to walk it.
P.S. Hey Marin, next time eat it...you pussy...
