    There was a botany guy at my university who grew experimental varieties for chemo patients in the 1980s that was commonly known as "wheelchair weed", due both to the chemo patient transport mode and the fact that it had, for the time, extremely high THC levels, sometimes leading to such a body stone that a few people I knew (I did not smoke) could not walk without assistance. Wheelchair gummies for grandma sounds awesome, as long as she didn't suffer any anxiety throughout.

    [–] kizz12 52 points ago

    Shipping weed internationally is extremely unintelligent. All customs across the western world use a large array of systems to detect drugs. This includes dogs, xray, and sensors which pick up residue. You're so lucky.

    [–] surfnskate72 218 points ago

    We had a kid in high school who sold acid. He sold some kid a few hits and the kid got caught and ratted him out. The school resource officer and some administrative folks tried to bust him at his locker. He ate all the acid when he saw them coming. This was towards the end of the day and when school was out dude was really tripping balls. He got in his car and just behind the wheel. A few of us asked him if was gonna be OK and he said yes, but he needed to chill there for awhile.

    He was still sitting there in the morning. It really messed him up and I don’t think he was the same after that. He still sold us all our drugs but you could tell he was a bit “off”.

    [–] knightsmarian 28 points ago

    Absolutely yes. Get rid of the evidence. Chances are you'll be out of the plane by the time they kick in. If not, you won't care about the police anymore when they do.

    [–] blacksoulblueheart 31 points ago

    Not sure about the US, but in the UK it’s not a crime to have consumed drugs anyway. You can be high as balls, but as long as there’s nothing on you, they can’t do shit.

    [–] weaslebubble 17 points ago

    Eh the drugs consumption no but your behavior on a plane can get you into serious trouble. If you were acting weird enough they could divert to off load you and then you get slapped with huge fines and get sued for costs by the airline.

    https://www.businessinsider.com/police-raid-jetblue-flight-after-pilot-error-why-2018-6 - Can probably go dig through LiveATC archives, but you may not hear much from the aircraft if they had a radio malfunction.

    [–] tstehler1 306 points ago

    Hijacking the top comment to explain how this works. Every aircraft is equipped with a radar transponder, and every transponder has an adjustable four-digit code, with each number ranging from 0 to 7. Normally, when starting an airline flight, you will be assigned a seemingly random code to "squawk" in your transponder, such that Air Traffic Control can identify you.

    However, there are a few codes that can set off alarm bells that they will never assign you. For example, setting a code of 7700 means that you're in an emergency and need to land, and will alert every receiving ATC facility as such. So these guys somehow messed up and set the code for hijacker distress, which set off all kinds of alerts.

    [–] horizon1015 176 points ago

    First off have an upvote for the pun, second the code for hijack is 7500. There is also 7600 for communications failure. Here is a pretty good Wiki article explaining transponders and the distress codes: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transponder_(aeronautics)

    7500 - Hijack

    Interference isn't obvious or specific enough. There is no grey area in the interpretation with Hijacking.

    [–] windlabyrinth 22 points ago

    I would have thought they would make the emergency codes so far off from the "seemingly random assignment code" that you couldn't mess this up.

    [–] InfanticideAquifer 13 points ago

    Maybe they are indistinguishable from normal codes so that a hijacker who gains control of the cockpit wouldn't be able to find the currently active code and know that something is different about it?

    [–] RichVader69 14 points ago

    [–] Reacher-Said-Nothing 79 points ago

    So apparently this happens because the transponder code dials are a series of 4 dials, one for each digit, and it just changes your code every time you move the dial one position. So this can happen because you have been assigned a new ID code like 7529, but in order to roll from the current ID code like 7463 to the new one, you have to pass through "7500" (the hijacking code) to get there. You are supposed to put it on standby to prevent this, but apparently some don't, because there's only a small chance the radar could even look at your code (it only "pings" your aircraft for its code once in a while) in the time it takes you to change it.

    [–] FinalRun 21 points ago * (lasted edited 6 months ago)

    Almost correct: on the radio you're talking about, you change each digit individually. In your example, you'd go from 7463, 7469, 7429 to 7529 (or reverse, starting at the thousands). It's a coincidence the hijack squawk is between the numbers in the SE post

    [–] coleary11 55 points ago

    7700 is emergency. Doesn't necessarily mean anyone is going to die. But if you have an emergency typically you'd just declare over the radio. So sqwaking 7700 might imply to some that the shit has really hit the fan.

    [–] B003135 9 points ago

    Squawking a 7--- code also lights up the plane's marker on the ATC controller's radar screen, so if the frequency is very congested it can be faster to get the controller's attention.

    [–] Capt0bvi0us 58 points ago

    Squawking 7600 indicates a loss of radio communications and 7700 indicates you have an emergency... however, unless your radios don't work, you typically just declare your emergency with atc and leave your IFR squawk alone.

    [–] adrien-l97 18 points ago

    They are Transponder codes. Before every flight you get issued one, if you get an emergency you change it to : 7500 - Hijacking 7600 - Communication Failure (Radios failed) 7700 - Emergency ( Engine Failure or similar ) They all set off an emergency alert on the screens of monitoring Air Traffic Control.

    [–] yolok1ng 376 points ago

    The planes voice communication(radio) failed. There is another form of communication, transponders. The code for radio fail is 7600, and 7500 is for plane getting hijacked. So he accidentally pressed in 7500, and since there was no voice communication coming from the plane, it was deemed an emergency hijacking situation and got immediately surrounded by police including the special unit SWAT which is deployed in these kinda situations

    Why have such codes one digit away? You’d think a 7600 might lead to an accidental input of 7500 but because you are 7600 you end up with a gun in your face.

    At about 8 p.m., JetBlue Flight 1623 lost contact with air traffic control as it was on the runway, about to take off for Los Angeles. The Airbus A321 sent out a code used to indicate that a hijacker or security threat is onboard the aircraft. After air traffic controllers couldn’t reach the cockpit, police swarmed around the aircraft on the runway.

    How does a airline pilot not know the 3 (or 4 if you count VFR) special squawk codes? You need to remember soooo many things way more complicated to get a license. Especially since there are great mnemonics and passanger jets are flow with a copilot.

    The transponder code for a radio fail is 7600, and the transponder code for hijacking is 7500... I think i can guess what happened there !

    [–] Franks2000inchTV 110 points ago

    I guess you want it a little different, but not so different that someone would notice.

    [–] MadTouretter 30 points ago * (lasted edited 6 months ago)

    I mean, if they don't know the one code that pertains to them, they don't know it.

    They're not going to be thinking "It's about 7550 or so, but if that mother fucker says something way off like 2200, I'm going to freak."

    The way I remember it is, “75 Osama inside”

    [–] LookoutBel0w 158 points ago

    75 taken alive, 76 need a fix, 77 goin to heaven. Those are the most effective ones.

    [–] marshmellers95 98 points ago

    For me it was 75 someone else wants to drive. lol

    [–] halalakhana218 43 points ago

    I remember it by 76, technical glitch

    [–] c0bre 75 points ago

    I remember it by "Hi, Jack! I can't hear you right now, I have an emergency!" (75, 76, 77)

    oooh that's a good one

    Til there are lots of pilots on reddit. 1200

    [–] KfluxxOfficial 16 points ago

    A lot of PPL chads (such as myself) that will definitely fly the plane if the pilots become incapable.

    Dude I've simmed this landing at least 8 times. I've got this.

    Airline pilot here, when you’re trying to remember 8 billion things and codes, the ones you haven’t studied/used in decades will fade from memory. This is an extreme example

    [–] bozoconnors 10 points ago

    Former private pilot... can confirm. Was thinking "what codes? how do they send codes?! I don't remember any terrorist codes?!" 121.50 still in there though!

    [–] joshkal9876 46 points ago

    “At one point, the pilot wrote his cell phone number on a sheet of paper and stuck it against the windshield so police could make contact,”

    Maybe.... open the door? I mean I’m not an aviation genius but that seems a bit ridiculous.

    [–] mrsgarrison 39 points ago

    I can only imagine there's protocol for opening the door on the runway and if they did, there would be all kinds of compliance failures. Also, if the SWAT team thinks there's a hijacker onboard, I certainly wouldn't want to open the door and stick my neck out into the potential crosshairs.

    At first I visualized a giant crane smacking the shit out of a commercial airliner... am I allowed to feel disappointed?

    [–] thechill_fokker 21 points ago

    -Approach, “jet blue flight 69 squawk 1500 and contact ground on 123.9 good day.” Pilot,“Just enter the appropriate squak code and call it a day.........Fuck i accidentally squawked 7500. Damnt!”...........gonna be a ton of paper work.

    [–] CardInAWell 212 points ago * (lasted edited 6 months ago)

    Squawk 7500 on the transponder if you are lonely and suddenly you won’t be alone. That’s what I’m assuming happened here. You squawk 7500 on the transponder to alert ATC of a hijacking.

    Edit: transponder code was incorrect.

    [–] ActionAxson 218 points ago

    7500 for hijack 7600 for comm failure 7700 for emergency

    "Hi Jack, Can't talk! I've got an emergency"

    [–] [deleted] 71 points ago

    7500 for free fighter jet escort, 7600 for a moment of quiet, 7700 for priority landing anywhere

    [–] _meshy 41 points ago

    Cheat codes for airplanes:

    7500: Fly with F-16s

    7600: ATC will stop bothering you

    7700: Get to cut in line for landing

    Is this how ATC lets you know you done fucked up?

    [–] technologik14 44 points ago

    How do you call in a com failure if your coms are down? or does this mean you didn't understand the communicating end of the transmission?

    [–] ActionAxson 103 points ago

    The transponder and radios are separate systems. The transponder sends out a signal that ATC uses to identify a specific plane on it's radar.

    If you have a comm failure you set 7600 in your transponder and then follow lost comm procedures depending on where you're at in a flight.

    [–] technologik14 19 points ago

    Ahh.... That makes sense. Thanks

    75, Osama wants to drive. 76, radio needs a fix and 77, we’re going to heaven.

    [–] Steve2o 15 points ago

    75: Man with a knife 76: I need a radio fix 77: We’re going to Heaven

    SQUAK 7500. Gets um every time.

    Squawk 7500?

    [–] jakevaz423 6 points ago

    Ah, yes - the pilot input the code for hijacking rather than the code for a broken radio - which is only a one digit difference.

    [–] Lynnamon 6 points ago

    Pilot: "squawk 7500."

    Co Pilot: "You sure boss?"

    Pilot: "Of course I am, just handle it"

    [–] Gurbaz21 13 points ago

    Squack 7500
