Normally I would not be so concerned about my safety as a toker in today's ridiculous war on drugs but recently I learned of something scary. I live in a small town so there's not much to worry about, but recently I found out from a high-level dealer that a nearby town just set up a secret drug task force. And by secret, I mean a 21 million dollar grant from the government going right to the police force to stop the drugs. We have had quite a few busts around here lately and have had problems with drugs in the high schools. This task force is setup to stop high level bud dealers, other low level drug dealers and problems associated with alcohol. I've heard they care more about alcohol than bud. Anyway the dealer said he was flagged and the cops are watching him. Apparently they pulled him over once and upon handing them his license, he was thrown out of the car, beat up, and his car searched immediately. He also described particular helicopters that fly over the county looking for weed grows or stashes. One thing that I was concerned about though was the cell phone issue. He said the police can trace your cell phone usage, pinpoint your location, even look into your records without a warrant. I've heard of this happening before so I agreed but he said there was a way around it. He said he carries around multiple Tracfones, you know one of those pre-paid deals where you just buy minutes. He said the phone isn't traceable and isn't tied to you. He said all they have on you is the phone number itself and no way to know if that is you using it or not. He also said the company isn't located in the U.S. so it's out of their jurisdiction to do much tracing of it. I'm not too concerned about being red-flagged myself, but I was wondering if anyone knows about the security of cell phone usage. I know anything sent over the open air can be intercepted and used against you, but from my understanding Tracfones can't be traced. Can someone enlighten me on this subject?
