It is well established that alcohol increases accident risk. Evidence of marijuana’s culpability in on-road driving accidents is much less convincing.

Although cannabis intoxication has been shown to mildly impair psychomotor skills, this impairment does not appear to be severe or long lasting. In driving simulator tests, this impairment is typically manifested by subjects decreasing their driving speed and requiring greater time to respond to emergency situations.

Nevertheless, this impairment does not appear to play a significant role in on-road traffic accidents. A 2002 review of seven separate studies involving 7,934 drivers reported, “Crash culpability studies have failed to demonstrate that drivers with cannabinoids in the blood are significantly more likely than drug-free drivers to be culpable in road crashes.” This result is likely because subject under the influence of marijuana are aware of their impairment and compensate for it accordingly, such as by slowing down and by focusing their attention when they know a response will be required. This reaction is just the opposite of that exhibited by drivers under the influence of alcohol, who tend to drive in a more risky manner proportional to their intoxication.

Today, a large body of research exists exploring the impact of marijuana on psychomotor skills and actual driving performance. This research consists of driving simulator studies, on-road performance studies, crash culpability studies, and summary reviews of the existing evidence. To date, the result of this research is fairly consistent: Marijuana has a measurable yet relatively mild effect on psychomotor skills, yet it does not appear to play a significant role in vehicle crashes, particularly when compared to alcohol. Below is a summary of some of the existing data.

(For more information on NORML’s position regarding marijuana, driving and the law, please click here or visit NORML’s Principles of Responsible Cannabis Use.)

UPDATE: Having the cops come right now. Have a big lead. More to come.

I hope the thief pooped in your MiniDisplayPort, put boogers in your MagSafe port and the cops are Abner Louima-ing you

that would be the only acceptable excuse for your lack of updates

I can't find the original video but the story was pretty cool. Wouldn't want to try this with someone who is really desperate though.

I predict the OP is tied up in a windowless van wearing nothing but assless chaps, a ball gag, and a thin layer of WD40.

Sorry guys, crazy busy, plus the cops are taking forever, as always.

So here's the full story:

It all began with my stuff being stolen on a Friday night from a friend's car (ok not robbed, geeezzz). Inside my backpack was a macbook pro which did have upgraded ram and hard drive.

The next morning, I found a fresh craigslist post for an exact match of a macbook, year, model, processor, ram, hard drive, etc. Sketch post as well "leave number, can't text, we'll call you."

So, we use a friend's email, and we get a voicemail from a woman saying to call her. I text her a few times asking about the macbook, no reply for a few days. So I text her from my phone saying its a police matter. Get a reply within seconds - text reads "... There is no macbook here. Sorry wrong number?" I don't reply for a few minutes and I get a call from her saying she accidentally posted in the wrong state (her number is from Vermont so that matches her story, but now she does have one?). I still don't have enough proof, so I brush it off.

Then 2 weeks later, I find the same posting a state up. use another friend's email, get a voicemail from the same number! So I text her/them (see image below) and it just escalates from there. By this point Im 95% sure it's my macbook. He leaves a voicemail stating his number is a week old, and when I text him saying a woman called me from that number 2 days ago, he switches to "go the phone yesterday".

I then get a random email from the email address "localchat2011@gmail.com" saying the following:

Quote:
I have info on your Macbook. text me at 786-510-6345 and I can text you pic of the guy who stole and send you his address. I actually got your email address from the macbook and I feel bad that he has it and is bragging about stealing it. I will only be available for an hour
It was also sent from the IP address 10.50.140.105 which is Class A private and not traceable.

If anyone can do their magic police work here, I'd greatly appreciate it! That number is now "disconnected" but could also just be forwarding calls to a disconnected number.

Anyways, I fall for it, and text saying "you have some information for me?"

I then receive about 500 texts within 10 minutes from Google SMS from this localchat2011@gmail.com saying "You will NEVER get it back HAHAHAHAHAH it's MINE BITCH!!!!" Half way through it also changes to localchat2012@gmail.com since he ran out of sms.

I called the police in both states and they both took down all of the information and are "on top of it". I've done most of the work for them already though, and I've found that this person has done this before so they may want to actually find him...

I also tried to trace the emails and did get slightly somewhere. If you click on "forgot password" for the localchat emails, and use localchat2011 for the localchat2012 recovery email, you can link back to a yahoo email which may be legit.

Image of said texts (number is removed because I cannot yet prove that it is the actual thief): http://imgur.com/ufQHZ

So, I'm asking the awesome NASIOC police to help me find any details regarding these pricks.

In reply to Hate's video post above - heard about that story. Very awesome! Funny thing is that I also had my stuff stolen in Portland and then posted in Seattle! haha!

I still don't get why you didn't report it stolen right away and give the police the info you got.

I don't see where he first said he's only had the number for a week and then switched to 'yesterday'.

I have to say, a part of me likes the gusto of the thief. Indeed, he is stupid to be taunting the OP. Every contact can produce a lead for the police to follow-up on. However, given the circumstances, it appears the thief is tech. savvy. My money is on never seeing the iPad again. Just sayin.

Okay, let me clear up some bull**** for you:

1. If you bought it used, you're SOL.. there is no way you can file a police report unless you can prove (a) it is registered in your name and (b) you did not sell it yourself.

2. You left your stuff in a car... I assume it wasn't in the trunk. I'm sorry, but if you're leaving your stuff in plain view, you cannot expect it to not get ripped off.

3. You're an idiot for having said it's a "police matter". You're not a cop, you have no business saying that.

4. DO NOT try to trap the thief. DO not go to the meeting, if they recognize you at all, you will be in serious harm's way.

5. If you try to trap the thief by way of police, you are running the risk that the thief is somewhat smart and says something along the lines of "_____________".... and after they say nothing, they tell you that you have the wrong person and they thought they were meeting you for coffee or whatever.

My advice is to let it go. Learn a lesson (DO NOT LEAVE YOUR **** IN PLAIN SIGHT), and buy a new overpriced computer.

Apple doesn't care. A stolen product is a potential new sale. A phone can be de-registered and black listed, a computer cannot.

#1. Seriously? You are full of wrong on that one... #3. I'm not sure what that means. He doesn't have a right to say something? Um, yes he does, whether it is police-related, politics or whatever. I have the right to say that you must have misspoke. As for your other points, I have to agree.

I think the point is, he showed all of his cards when he told them "it's a police matter". Now the thief was aware of the fact that the original owner was onto him.

And by the way, did they smash the window when they grabbed your stuff, or was the car just not locked?*

*this is why if I have to leave my stuff in the car, it goes in the trunk and the trunk release is disabled in the passenger compartment.
