I grew up in rural NWPA, surrounded in forest. I took an early interest in cryprozoology and sharks and have read many books on various crypto subjects such as Bigfoot and Megalodon over the years. I am not a professional writer or a journalist, but I do the best I can. I have a quirky, obscurely dry and sometimes sarcastic sense of humor than can get me in trouble. Some love me and some hate me, but I am who I am.

When I stumbled upon this I thought I’d hit the jackpot! Wowee! This has everything! a guy high on “synthetic marijuana”, invading aliens, a high speed chase and of course Dr. Phil.

If it weren’t for the police being involved, I wouldn’t believe this story. This is B-Movie material if I’ve ever heard it.

Richard Donald Blanscet’s Wednesday night antics should vault him to Internet stardom. Why? He got high on Mr. Nice Guy “synthetic marijuana” then hopped into his burgundy Jaguar to save his girlfriend from an alien invasion–after hearing Dr. Phil’s voice in his head. Along the way he sparked a 120-mph police chase.

It all went down in Rowan County, North Carolina last night. With cops, fire trucks, and EMS personnel already at his house after he reacted poorly to his fake weed, Blanscet heard Dr. Phil, speaking in a high-pitched voice, alert him that America was being invaded by aliens. Not one to shirk his duty, he immediately hopped into his burgundy Jaguar (no model mentioned in the report), nearly hitting an EMS vehicle, and streaked across the county at 100-120 mph, cops in tow, to save his girlfriend from the presumably grey-skinned hordes.

As a bonus, the chase led through the classic B-movie scenes: a cemetery, a church, and a field, before eventually ending in a crash at an intersection. Blanscet told police he didn’t stop for the cars chasing him because when he saw the lights, he “realized the invasion was real and the cops were on it.”

Moral of the story: don’t listen to Dr. Phil.

At this juncture I can only laugh. This is surreal! Dr. Phil being involved is the icing on the cake. And we thought Mondays were the worst. I hope this story helps everyone get thru the first workday of the week.

Now, I’ll expect to read some of the best jokes of the week in the comments section. So lets hear ’em!

  • Forget the aliens and Dr. Phil in this story. The most important question is: Synthetic weed? Why?

    au naturel baby!


  • It does not show up in urinalysis tests is probably why. Or he’s trying to fool himself somehow. I guess he’s never heard the expression “Yew cain’t fool ah fool” though.

  • Looks like my views are stuck on 1. Anyway, I’ve never heard of synthetic weed myself although I read about this stuff kids are buying now call K2 or something like that. It’s supposed to be a legal alternative to reefer.

  • Jen

    yup. and it comes in either a powder or liquid form. don’t ask how i know that. and yes, it shows up on drug tests, it still contains THC, which is the chemical they test for. in other news, i wanna get my hands on some of that synthetic psilocyben…jk.

  • Chris Sargeant

    Ok, so he hears the disembodied voice of Dr. Phil alerting him to an alien invasion “after reacting poorly to his fake weed”.

    Lol, understatement.


  • RednGreen

    I am so leary of the fake stuff. Not interested in the least. God made it perfect just the way it is 😉

    However, I may or may not have imbibed at some point in other substances that could possibly produce a similar effect. Thankfully, nothing like this ever happened to me. Er- I mean- if I had actually partaken in said substa- nevermind.

  • Engst

    Can’t think this would’ve happened with the real thing. I truly appreciate the entertainment here, no joke.

  • The more recent versions of “fake weed” do not contain THC which shows up on a drug screen. You WILL test positive for the chemicals being used to induce an analog sensation, but the doctor/lab would have to know that they were looking for it, as it is not something they would generally test for.

    If I may be so bold as to make a suggestion Ms. Jen, I would say “stick with DMT.”

    It’s endogenous, so it’s quickly processed out, and the peak event can then be viewed from a more lucid state while it is still fresh in your memory. Of course, I would suggest only doing this in a truly safe environment, and not while in the back of a pickup truck being chased down a dirt road by angry dogs after having just seen “Evil Dead” for the first time.

  • Jen


    HAHA!!! i actually don’t do any substances at all, except for nicotine…and alcohol once in a while. once you get to 27, you learn it’s not all you think it is. allergic to pot, mushrooms are fun but rot the brain…yeah. finding out i was allergic to mj was fun…not. i didn’t even know they had made such changes to the synthetic, but i was aware that it still retains the semi-hallucinogenic properties. it’s still a weird concept to me. :/

  • Jen

    also, @ red:

    GUILTY!!!!! just admit it, woman! 😉

  • Susan

    I am sure the GT community has already seen this but I thought I would share it just for a good laugh……. yeah even the real thing can make you have a panic attack…… le sigh….


  • Read about K2 here. It’s a herbal mixture and from what I’ve read it’s 10 times more harmful than real weed.

    for all you do, this bud’s for you.
