Man Who Blazed Up During the Capitol Riot Arrested

We previously reported about a man who filmed himself smoking a joint inside the Capitol Rotunda during the January 6th riot

He posted the footage on his personal facebook where he could be heard saying “We made it in the building… we’re taking it back… Capitol building smoking with all my people!”

We reiterated his irresponsibility as a cannabis consumer since possession on federal land is strictly illegal. 

But now, we’re here to follow up and point out that he’s been arrested by the FBI. 

James Bonet’s video was identified by a coworker who later turned him in.

His coworker indicated that Bonet often likes to talk about conspiracy theories and likes to try and convince people.

The coworker was also concerned that Bonet’s video showed him not wearing a mask and was worried he’d be a culprit in the spread of the coronavirus. 

West Virginia FINALLY Advances its Medical Cannabis Program

The list includes over 30 businesses that are dispersed throughout the state.

Eligible residents are now able to register on the state department’s website to become medical cannabis patients.
