Are we not learning anything?

We can’t believe we have to explicitly sound this out for some of you dummies, but bragging about your expansive weed collection on YouTube isn’t going to lead to anything good. (Remember this guy? #TBT)

Ask William Bradley, a Connecticut man who was arrested Monday after police discovered his video channel of the myriad of drugs he was collecting.

According to WNBC-TV, Mr. Bradley called his grow house the “Hope Garden” and shot video tours of this magical kingdom that not only contained marijuana, but hashish, oxycodone and cocaine. Police say they easily identified him because he would introduce himself in the videos and ask for donations.

In a video viewed by NBC 4, Mr. Bradley said he had terminal cancer and was publicizing his weed to give to other cancer patients:

“As you can see, God has gifted me with an abundance and it’s more than I need, so I want to take the extra and give it to people that need the help,” Mr. Bradley says. “I want to be able to help people like myself, and I don’t have the money to do that.”

Well, he’s probably putting that money toward a good lawyer because he’s being held on $5,000 bond. Police charged him with “multiple counts of narcotics violations” including possession of marijuana with intent to sell and operating a drug factory. 

So, if you feel like humblebragging perhaps save it for a social network no one uses, like Potluck.
