Two men in Austin, Texas are in jail accused of selling marijuana on Craigslist.
According to an arrest affidavit, Austin police said they were searching for common terms used to sell narcotics in Austin and came across the following post:
DR 420. Hey Fellow austinites or visitors. I have your 420 needs and all other goodies you can find in the shops in northern cali, the best climates in the country. I’m bringin the dispensary to our town so quit going somewhere sketchy to look. Contact me and know I’m totally legit and laid back.

The officer made email contact with the poster, later identified as Kevin Cunningham, 23, and asked for prices on the drugs. Cunningham said his roommate, Christopher Collinge, 24, would be the person with the pricing information. Cunningham met up with the undercover officer on March 10 and agreed to buy an ounce of marijuana and a quarter ounce of hasish for $800, according to the affidavit.
When the officer met up with Cunngingham and Collinge for the purchase, that’s when officers arrested the duo.
Both suspects were arrested and charged with delivery of marijuana and possession of a controlled substance.
