Cops have a new weapon in their arsenal of drug-fighting equipment: your cell phone. It seems that young peoples' addiction (so to speak) to text messaging, has extended into the area of drug sales. A very convenient way to score some drugs is by simply texting your contact to see whether or not there is anything available. If the text message comes back that there is, a meeting is set up (by text messaging) and the drugs passed. Well, guess what now always gets searched along with your car if you are busted for drug possession? You got it - your cell phone. And if they find text messages relating to drug sales on there, suddenly the charge escalates from simple possession to possession for purpose of sale. And know what that means? You are not eligible for a drug program as an alternative to jail. You go to jail. Switch now to the area of extra-marital activity. Text messaging plays a huge role here. Got a girl friend somewhere? Text messaging lets you stay in contact. It also is an invitation to disaster. They say the wife always knows. That may or may not be true. But if she even SUSPECTS, and you leave your cell phone lying around, you are leaving yourself wide open for huge trouble. Just ask Tiger. So what can we learn from all this? Sure, sure - don't sell drugs and don't fool around on your spouse. But, sadly, we are all humans, and it doesn't always work out that way. SOOO, if it develops that you can't always walk the line, at least be sure to PROMPTLY delete any and all incriminating messages on your cell phone as soon as they are received or sent. Otherwise, get ready to be screwed by one of our most popular electronic advancements of recent years.
