Former Student Makes $250K At College Job. Too Bad It's Illegal…

former college student makes crazy money selling weed in college

Instead of a leisurely position in his dorm's mail room, former North Carolina State University student Robert Harrell Bass Jr. started an enormous marijuana-selling business on campus, and made $250,000 in sales in the past year!

Robert was caught by an Oklahoma state trooper while transporting 26 pounds of marijuana from California to Raleigh, North Carolina.

When Raleigh police searched the former student's home, they found $26,123 in cash, nearly 60 grams of marijuana, and other drug paraphernalia. Yikes!

He currently faces a drug trafficking charge, and his bail has been set at about $25,000.

Wow, Robert! We're thinking you need to face the music, deal with the consequences, and then utilize those business skillz of yours for good…not evil.

Crazy!

What a bummer! The ticket sales must be getting really rough!

The 2010 Lilith Fair Tour has announced the cancellation of ten upcoming shows!

Co-found Terry McBride explains:

“We are in the midst of one of the most challenging summer concert seasons with many tours being cancelled outright. Everyone involved with the tour would like to apologize to the fans and artists scheduled to play in these markets, and express appreciation for all the support for the festival’s return. Lilith remains the only tour of its kind, and we are confident that fans will be amazed by what each date has to offer.”

The all-woman music tour will no longer be playing in Salt Lake City, Montreal, Raleigh, Charlotte, West Palm Beach, Tampa, Birmingham, Austin, Houston, and Dallas. Refunds are available to those who already purchased tickets.

Rough!
