There is no irony of Matt 'The Law' Lindland being accused of stealing six marijuana plants from a guy named Gonzalo Aldana Gamboa. Marijuana is legally allowed in Oregon for medicinal purposes, therefore Matt Lindland was entirely in his right to possess and cultivate a certain amount of marijuana plants. However, the issue is Gonzalo accusing Lindland of literally 'potnapping' these plants which has a street value of about $122,880. Five Ounces of Pain received a statement from Matt Lindland regarding these hazy accusations which is filled with some intentional marijuana jokes -- Lindland even highlighted them in caps just in case we missed them.
“I have no idea what this about. There seems to be a trend these days with folks filing frivolous lawsuits without merit. I think this is a CHRONIC problem. Times are tough financially for a lot of people and everyone seems to think these is some kind of POT OF GOLD at the end of the lawsuit rainbow.”
When we interviewed fellow Oregon Team Quest member, Joe Warren, he told us that he not only frequently smokes marijuana, but he's medically 'legal' in several states. Team Vision Quest for the absolute win. [Source]
