If the man wants to grow his own supply out in the middle of no where, why not just leave him alone?

Because it's a federal offense. They make more money busted your @ss and taking your sh!t.

Sorry dude, they aren't going to legalize it.

Because it's against the law?

It's called civil disobedience, just like driving at 60mph in a 55mph zone (but I'm sure you don't do that)

Before he got busted I didn't know and didn't care what that guy was doing. Why should anybody else?

Seventy plants worth a hundred grand. Isn't that the approximate amount that clown of a DA in Harford county said the retired teacher's nineteen plants were worth?
These bozo's keep filling your heads with crap and you people keep lapping it up. All they care about is their own little fiefdoms and they will squash you and everyone you know to keep them. Wake up!

they dont leave him alone because it makes much more finaical sense to bust his azz. 7 plants = 100,000 dollars,,,now im sorry,, but this stuff doesnt get "throw away" at the local police dept.... it gets smoked, and sold from a different set of criminals.. rebecca is right,, it should be legalized,,,it is not different that alcohol,,,,but will not be,,,, because in the right hands,,,,,it can be sold to the highest civil bidder. p.s not a pot smoker, never have been,,,,but i still think the laws regarding this issue are bullshyt......

Well, he wasn't bothering anyone, but his favorite actor is Paulie Shore....something had to be done! Hopefully now, he can be smoke free for a bit to learn why we must lock up people like that!

Not me! I inhaled, held it, and begged for more.
I was a real pot head when I was 18.
I didn't drink though.
I drink now, what do think is the least harmful?
No worries, just asking.

(I think this thread is being watched)

I think harmless is not the correct word. Like any drug, it can be very harmful if abused. The majority of users, however, are harmless, just like the majority of alcohol drinkers are.

You and I may pick and choose which laws to abide by, but the cops can't (or at least shouldn't). They had to arrest him.

pyro, if you do some research you will find that marijuana has far less tar and harmful carcinogens than tobacco products. Its classification claims it has no relevant medical purpose, which has been consistently proven wrong. The therapeutic and medicinal applications of the plant are astounding in scope and number. Thats why MD has a medical marijuana program along with CA and NY and some other states.

Marijuana does not cause physical or psychological dependence, it does not contribute to vehicle accidents like alcohol and does not cause mental bodily deterioration like cocaine and heroin.

When people are confronted with the true facts on pot they almost universally agree that our current policies are counterproductive and and an extreme waste of taxpayer money. We need comprehensive drug policy reform. And we should start by de-criminalizing mary jane.

So, in comparison to plants that are legal to smoke and can be bought on any corner store in the country...yes marijuana is harmless.
