Real Life “Weeds” In Knoxville

Thanks to @brad3948 for pointing this one out.

Jeffery Simpson was using the shop as a front to mask his drug-dealing profits. It’s not clear how the FBI discovered that, but, in 2006, agents began engineering and documenting a series of buys of cocaine and crack from Simpson, according to a plea agreement filed by Assistant U.S. Attorney Tracy Stone.

My guess is an agent went in there and thought the same thing we did when we went…”Nobody in their right mind would ever spend this much money on baby clothes. They must be laundering money here or something.”

Side note: This newspaper story is way more interesting and funny than the latest season of the show “Weeds”.
