Big photos below.
We recently noted the budding of "free" marijuana deals on Denver Craigslist, with folks frequently offering cannabis in exchange for a donation or as a bonus for the purchase of another item.

But such proposals aren't the only kind of weed-related deals on the site.

Here's a memorable example: An advertiser is offering to swap what looks from photos below to be a great hippie bus for two-and-a-half pounds of pot.

A look inside.
Here's the text for the ad:
Selling my 25 ft Blue Bird bus. Currently living in it hooked up to electricity at a friends house, wanting to buy my own. You can come by for a test drive or to look at it just call or text. Wanting to trade for 2.5 lbs of marijuana or 5k cash. Or maybe partial trade for classic VW. Contact for more info.
We're not sure if the items inside the vehicle are included, but they include a rainbow coffee mug and a kettle emblazoned with a sticker that reads, "The Magic Bus."

Only in Colorado. Look below to see more photos from the post:

Bitcoin exchange CEO arrested for money laundering


U.S. government agents have arrested Charlie Shrem, the CEO of Bitcoin exchange BitInstant, charging him with laundering money for customers of online drug bazaar Silk Road.

The U.S. attorney in the Southern District of New York said Shrem helped someone he hadn't met in person, Robert Faiella, sell more than $1 million worth of bitcoins to Silk Road customers. Faiella, a 52-year-old Florida man, allegedly ran an underground Bitcoin exchange using the alias BTCKing.


Shrem was arrested at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York on Sunday, and Faiella was arrested at his home in Cape Coral, Fla., on Monday, prosecutors said. Both are charged with conspiracy to launder money and operating an unlicensed money transmitting business.

Why Travel for Colorado Pot When You Can Buy It From Your Friendly Neighborhood Dealer?

http://blogs.dallasobserver.com/unfairpark/2014/01/colorado_marijuana_texas.php

In the weeks since marijuana became legal in Colorado, there have been a thick plume of stories on how to plan a pot-smoking vacation. Even The Dallas Morning News, which still blanches at the notion of fully legalized pot, offered a buyer's guide.

The pot tourism boom, however large it will prove to be, is all well and good, but what about the pot enthusiast who, through lack of time or means, can't make the trip? Will they never have the opportunity to partake of legally produced Colorado weed?

They will, thanks to entrepreneurs who, as the Houston Chronicle reported this weekend, are already shuttling the stuff into Texas.

The Chronicle piece is based primarily on a report released last year by the Rocky Mountain High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area, which looked at what had happened with medical marijuana in Colorado as a proxy for the likely impact of full legalization.

Texas, according to the report, is the No. 4 importer of Colorado's medical marijuana. In 2012, law enforcement here seized 18 shipments containing 198 pounds marijuana that originated in Colorado, compared with 37 shipments in Kansas, 30 in Missouri, and 22 in Illinois, all straight shots down Interstate 70. (Texas was No. 2 in the number of seized mail parcels).

The report cites one case in which Texas Highway Patrol stopped a Richardson-bound vehicle with a couple of pounds of pot and four containers of marijuana-laced, butter, popcorn, drinks and cookies.

Tom Gorman, who heads the Rocky Mountain HIDTA, tells the Chronicle officers are already seeing an increase in those numbers post-legalization.

The agency's report is backed up with statistics showing that seizures of Colorado-sourced marijuana have increased fourfold over the past four years, and law enforcement agencies in Colorado and neighboring states are understandably wary that full legalization will spur further increases.

No doubt that will happen, but there's no chance that enough high-quality Colorado weed will flow through the Panhandle to fundamentally change the dynamics of the Texas drug market. It'll just be another option, available to those who seek it.

Problem is you can only give away a oz of marijuana as a gift before it turns into a federal crime! Let's use our brains people....SMH!
