The feds have an insanely high conviction rate. Everybody wants to make a plea deal. That's one reason why snitching is your only bargaining chip when you do get caught, afaik.

Agreed, Fedz need probable cause from a judge to arrest you in these instances, unlike when you’re just smoking weed on Smokey Joe’s highway, naturally at that point the conviction is easily… that’s why you see all the dummies getting caught on here, the smarties are encrypted and ain’t walking into Walmart swiping Los Cardes Magicales
