Well-known San Francisco Chronicle outdoors writer Tom Stienstra busted in hometown of Weed, Calif. for growing marijuanaWell, this had to be awkward: Police arrested well-known San Francisco Chronicle outdoors writer Tom Stienstra and his wife on suspicion of possession of marijuana for sale in the Northern California town of (wait for it) Weed, Calif. I'd write a punchline, but I'd say that pretty much takes care of it.
"There are no charges filed, and we know very little about the allegations against Tom and hope it is resolved quickly," (Chronicle Editor and Executive Vice President Ward) Bushee said. "In the meantime, we will continue to publish his popular outdoor reports in the Sporting Green."Sporting Green? San Francisco CHRONICle? Get it? Ha h—ok, fine, I give up. Nothing's going to top Weed, Calif.
