Cocaine user demands consumer rights


Just when you think there's nothing dumb left to report, up pops "Disgruntled drug buyer calls police to complain."

Now, granted, this is Cape Cod, where it was winter right through the end of April, and where rain has been and continues to be the forecast through May 9. Cape Codders aren't at their best right now.

Still, it's hard to believe that a man called the police at 12:40 a.m., "asking them to arrest another man because he had given the man $150 to buy cocaine, but the seller never handed over the drugs."

Maybe the caller had been smoking too much pot, now that small amounts of marijuana have been decriminalized in Massachusetts. Then there it was, almost 1 a.m. and the coke still hadn't arrived.

The cops have not made any arrests so far, the paper reported. But the anonymous caller did rat out the drug dealer by leaving the bad guy's contact information.

There's just no dealer loyalty these days.
