With marijuana becoming legal in more and more states to varying degrees, here is a cautionary tale for anyone who is thinking about smoking and domaining.
Don’t do it.
This story comes from a guy who told his tale on Reddit.com who spend over $5,000 registering domain names while high after he went on a buying spree on godaddy.
Could you do this when you were drunk, well sure but if you look at the domain names the guy registered you can clearly see that Mary Jane paid a visit:
“Last Monday night I was talking with my friend Mitch about the crazy domains he sold during his internship at GoDaddy. Apparently these people would buy domains really cheap and them for tons of money later.
Wednesday night, after a long day of studying for finals, it made sense to kick it and unwind for the evening. A few drinks, too many joints and LOT of Taco Bell later I found myself on the phone with GoDaddy.
“I spent over three hours on the phone with an associate, going over my amazing idea of cornering the Escort and Wrap markets (Mainly Wraps).
I wake up the next morning with an email from GoDaddy congratulating me on my bulk domain name purchase and billing me the KING of Wraps.
“Apparently I spent $5,000+ on my Credit Card between 1 – 4:30 am and purchased over 200+ food, wrap and escort names.”
“Please help, I can’t get a refund on these and I need to pay my student loans. I just finished my final exams and graduated from college last week:”

he tried to corner the market and ended up cornering himself

The Reddit article has now been removed, but as noted in the comments to it, the domains were registered on different dates, so the original poster’s claims are questionable.
e.g. baconranchwraps.com – 2014-12-09, caliescorts.com – 2014-12-10, peanutbutterwrap.com – 2014-12-13, etc.
dem is some tasty names
nice domains…u definitely got talent my friend…
u should quit skool and do this full time…
next time u get high, i’ll give u my credit card number
I’m not gonna lie, the lobsterwrap sounds good. Never bought a domain over the phone with a sales rep though.

With the mention of all the Escorts, Strippers, Bitches, Wraps and Shakes it looks like its an all you can eat buffet!!!
I think there are some good domains in that list. I actually really like LobsterWraps.com. Like another person above I’m now hungry.
SpamWraps.com – I think I will pass. I get enough Spam in my inbox as it is. Don’t need to eat it too. However, if you are ever in Hawaii or Indonesia you really should try Spam Musubi. Ohh man! It sounds so disgusting at first but at the end of a 4 hour hike it is the best thing you have ever eaten! Keep this on the down-low as it is a local favorite. I was unsure until I had it and now I am a lifelong fan. But only when on the islands.

Different dates, probably a fake story. Maybe this person was high all week?
