Sandusky, OH - The police were called to a home in Sandusky by a mother of a 16-year old whom she said was holed up in his room smoking marijuana and using pages from the Bible as rolling papers.
When police arrived at the home, sure enough, the boy had no clue that anything was up and didn't even attempt to hide the open Bible and bag of marijuana beside it. He made no attempt to resist arrest but only said to his mother "ma, dude, why hast thou forsaken me?"
The boy was taken to a juvenile detention center and placed in a locked cell until he could be arraigned on Monday. When asked by Police what possessed him to use Bible pages to roll his joints, the boy told them "dude, you know, I got the bag, got home, looked in my sock drawer and someone had taken my papers, either that or I forgot to get some.
At any rate, I heard other guys saying they used the Bible all the time. It cuts down on having Abu down at the local 7-Eleven look at me funny every time I try to get a pack of ziggies." Then he added, "look dude, I'm not a hardened criminal. I mean, yeah, I used Bible paper to roll a doobie, but I swear, man, I didn't take any passages that meant anything. I went straight to the book of Amos. You don't hear a lot about Amos in church, you know? Maybe cause Amos is a black name."
