If the boyfriend's legs were gangrenous, the ex-husband was simply offering him a favor! I should be honored to have such a kind friend. (But in all seriousness, that's pretty damned scary. Yikes.)

The officer smelled the weed wafting from the car in front of him into his cruiser while sitting in traffic!? McGruff the crime dog...literally. Wow! Those kids must have really be puffing down. Why so much weed....1 of the 3 couldn't have left their bag at home? Of all the streets in Woburn to be cruising and they decide that the best choice is the street the police station is located? I'm assuming the police searched the vehicle, as they found multiple bags of weed, but did they located even one brain between the 3 youths?
