So this is why we set up Google alerts!
A self-professing pot grower in Maryland says on a message board that he almost got busted yesterday because a Verizon (VZ) Fios installer supposedly ratted him out during a house visit.
We’ll ask Verizon if it’s true or not, but either way, an entertaining tale!
Update: A Verizon rep says the company has “been unable to find any technician or office that knows about this or was involved in anything like it. Urban legend?”
So, I have a small clone garden growing, under 15 plants, in the wash room of my apartment.
I live in Maryland.
Out of the 15 plants, 10 are almost ready.
So, Verizon FIOS needs to enter my apartment to put their bullshit cable into my life. I take the day off work, move the plants to a room they won’t be working in. (the plants are ak-47 clones, 1 week to harvest, stinky, about half a pound)
Verizon Fios enters, cuts holes in my ceiling, in the bathroom, the washingmachine/grow room (completely empty), and another room.
Then one of the motherfucking workmen calls the police on me for smelling bud.
Cops show up an hour later, say they’ve got a complaint, can they search?
I say, No, that I smoked a joint earlier in the day and maybe they saw that, but why are they harassing me smoking a joint in my own house?
They go to the rental office, tell them that they could not verify the mj smell, and that they did not arrest me.
Do I have grounds to sue Verizon for this breach of privacy?
If so, anyone know a MD lawyer?
or should I just shut up?
should I get rid of my gear?
(we’re moving june 14 to another , bigger apt in same complex)
I have no other legal issues.
Some help, commiseration would be great!
