Despite some stoners' belief that it's practically legal, marijuana doesn't exactly have equal protections under the law. But at least one Maryland home invasion victim apparently missed the memo, reporting his pilfered pot to the police: “They stole my weed,” the man told a 911 operator. He put out the call after waking up to three armed masked men who stole cash, a laptop, cell phones, a Honda CR-V and, of course, the 911 caller's pot stash—but only the rent money and the weed were mentioned to the dispatcher. “We don't usually get these kind of reports,” a police spokeswoman said.
