Wa-Post Picks Up CdA Pot Story

H/T to David Cole /Coeur d'Alene Press for that gift-wrapped pot story that now has gone national. Here's the first two graphs from Washington Post online story: "A Washington state man faces felony marijuana trafficking charges after an officer found 3.3 pounds of marijuana wrapped up as Christmas gifts during a traffic stop in northern Idaho. Jason D. Palmer, 36, of Springdale, Wash., was arrested Dec. 22 as he returned from a trip to Montana, where he had been visiting family, the Coeur d’Alene Press. Kootenai County sheriff’s officials said Palmer was stopped east of Coeur d’Alene because his vehicle was repeatedly changing lanes and following other drivers too closely. The officer said he smelled marijuana as he approached the vehicle." More here.

Question: Izzit just me, or does this guy resemble the actor in those Geico Caveman commercials?
