Good day, sickos. I want to thank all of you for your calls and emails inquiring about my well-being and offering sex at various public parks. But fear not, I am just on a much-deserved, much-needed vacation. Although I am off this week, I will be writing up some stuff off and on while finally being able to focus on some DD house cleaning. I'll also have time to respond to some of you interested in writing. In the meantime, be sure to check out the forums for the latest in terrible news.

pot leafBerne, NY – A 50-year-old New York man died the other day after a booby trap he’d placed to protect some pot plants turned his ass into a human Pez dispenser.

Albany County Sheriff Craig Apple said Daniel Ricketts was driving an ATV in the backyard of his property around 2:30 p.m. Saturday when he ran into a heavy gauge wire that had been placed at neck height.

The heavy gauge wire was one of several booby traps Ricketts had set up to protect four marijuana plants he planted on his property. Ricketts was nearly decapitated by the wire and died after being thrown from his ATV. Apple says alcohol may have been a factor in the accident.

Police found several other traps Ricketts had placed to protect his sweat leaf, including a barbed wire trap and a leg trap similar to those used to trap coyotes. The marijuana plants were removed from the property on Saturday, but so far there have been no arrests.

Sheriff Apple said it’s common for people to use the rural hills in the area to grow pot. “They go up there and they’ll grow marijuana on a lot of the state lands. Fortunately hikers, people out and about, neighbors will call us and they’ll tell us,” he said.

He also said that it is not uncommon for those who farm legal crops to set up traps to stop all-terrain vehicles from trespassing on their property and destroying their fields. “There’s a lot of four-wheelers and a lot of dirt bikers up in the mountains of Albany County,” Apple said.  “These kids, not that we condone it,  they do run all over the place with their four wheelers.”

I think the last time we featured wire traps on Dreamin’ Demon was back in 2012, when 19-year-old Benjamin Rutkowski and 21-year-old Kai Christensen were accused of setting up a series of booby traps along a popular hiking trail in Utah.

    Damn. Another casualty in the war on drugs.

    Also, sweat leaf? Gross. I’d take some sweet leaf, though. ;)

    Lol boobys

    I cackled at “human Pez dispenser. Maybe he was smoking some of his own product while riding…?

    Phew – Albany NY, not Albany, OR, nothing for me to worry about…

    What a dumbass.

    Depends whether the trap was set to prevent confiscation or just theft. One is protest, the other is just greedy.

    Classic example why not to get high on your own supply….
    This is the very reason I told my husband not to set any kind of trap like that because he’d get all high forget about it and then it be himself he caught….

  • rpgmomma8404

    Sounds like an episode of 1,000 ways to die. o.O

  • Jessica Stewart

    Right? I did know some guys near Roseburg that got caught a few years back because they were dumb asses, and got caught on camera showing off their “secret garden” but at least they didn’t die.

    I see what you did there, Ursula.

  • Heather4877

    That’s kind of fucked up to put a booby trap up to stop innocent four-wheelers from stumbling upon your crop if said boody trap can decapitate a person!

  • sweekymom

    Four marijuana plants? Four? He set up a deadly trap to protect four measly plants? What, were they made of gold or something? He deserved to be hoist with his own petard. Idjit!

  • Evan

    {spits food out all over desk} for FOUR plants??!?!??

  • Buffettgirl

    I’ve known a few eejits that have gotten caught trying to be all Billy-Badass and stealthy when they lack the skills required to be either of those things. I do know a grower in the Albany area, but he’s not our grower, just a friend of a friend kind of thing. :-)

  • Jessica Stewart

    Yeah, 20 plants, 100yards below your neighbors house and 100 yards above your parents house, is not ‘sneaky’ and ‘well hidden’, and easily identifiable clothing with no face mask, is not ‘stealthy spy’ clothing. Eejits is right!

    “Human Pex dispenser.” Love it. My dad once told me he’d turn a boy I brought to the house as a teen into one of those if I ever brought him back. I wasn’t even dating the kid, but whatever… at 6’3″, 250lbs, I took my father very seriously.

  • Buffettgirl

    Lemme guess, they were also skull-baked at the time and were giggling like loons in that footage?

  • JohnQknowitall

    So if the trap had killed or injured a thief or an innocent person what would have happened to the body or the injured person? People who set booby traps have no regard for anyone, but themselves.

    Marijuana negativity impacts the memory… hence forgetting where his own booby traps were. I’d say he’s living proof… but…………………
    HEY! At least he caught a booby.

  • Jessica Stewart

    Well if you realize what it means that they were caught by a police force from an even smaller town than Roseburg, then you will comprehend the level of ineptitude we’re speaking of. Young, dumb, and full of…….THC I guess? lol

  • Andrea Pizzuto

    When “No Trespassing” signs just aren’t enough. If you set deadly booby-traps, make sure you don’t sleepwalk, or drink to excess..

  • LeaveMeBe

    And they say marijuana isn’t dangerous. Pfffft!
