Marijuana archer is world’s worst prison smuggler

Maybe it’s because I recently binged the first season of “Orange is the New Black,” but there seems to be a serious Baader-Meinhof phenomenon thing going on with prison smuggling stories. I won’t ruin it for you if you haven’t seen the show, but the women in “Orange” get pretty creative with how they obtain their contraband.

Though none as creative as 36-year-old Washington man David Wayne Jordan, who is accused of having attempted to deliver marijuana to a Whatcom county jail on the tip of an arrow.

Via ABC News:

“A Whatcom County sheriff’s employee saw the man step out of his pickup truck and use a bow to launch the arrow toward the jail’s second-floor recreation area, but it missed its target…

The sheriff says Jordan told deputies he had been aiming at a squirrel, but he couldn’t explain why he needed to attach marijuana to the arrow to go squirrel hunting.”

The age old squirrel-hunting defense! Improbable, but not entirely out of place, though it would be more fitting in a post-apocalyptic, “Walking Dead”-esque scenario. Points for creativity, but, unfortunately for this guy, those points are only redeemable in prison.

A recent story on Death and Taxes has taught us that maijuana-infused bacon is a thing, so perhaps truth is stranger than fiction. Or, more likely, this guy literally tried to shoot weed into a jail.

Occam’s arrow.
