Mack Reed's pot-in-yard story explodes in the media

mack-reed-drugs.jpgMack Reed's Tumblr post about finding a duffel bag full of someone else's weed in his Silver Lake yard and calling the LAPD — we posted about it early yesterday — has made its way rapidly around the web. Of course. The LA Times blogged about it. Gawker ran wild with it. The local Patch picked it up too, and now the LA Weekly's blog.

Reed has been chronicling the interest on his Facebook page. "Not so fun as you might expect, trust me," he says.
