That's sad....

'Penalties against possession of a drug should not be more damaging to an individual than the use of the drug itself; and where they are, they should be changed. Nowhere is this more clear than in the laws against possession of marijuana in private for personal use... Therefore, I support legislation amending Federal law to eliminate all Federal criminal penalties for the possession of up to one ounce of marijuana.'- Jimmy Carter, U.S. President

'I inhaled frequently. That was the point.'- Barack Obama, U.S. President

'The war on drugs has been an utter failure. We need to rethink and decriminalize our nation's marijuana laws.'-Barack Obama, January 2004

Drugs are drugs and dealing is dealing. If people don't want to get caught do your shit in private and leave it at that. The fact that kids knew who to go to for drugs says plenty. These may not be the "hard-core" drug dealers of that area, but "favors" were still done and THAT is where the problem starts.

one more thing...it says "8 people were arrested for drug sales RELATED offenses." What else does drug sales mean? The operation unfolded because law enforcement received 10 criminal complaints from people surrounding you. They were doing their JOB...nothing more and maybe a little less. I don't think it should have taken 10 complaints before these people were caught.

Complaints = charges. You have no idea what you are talking about.

Did they need to do this mock bust because they were worried about budget cuts? It appears that way. It's kind of embarrassing that they took "months" to uncover these petty "dealers" when anyone in town could tell you who the real dealers are. It's a town of 2,000. It's not a secret. Shameful what they did to Robbi and Page.

Knowing who they are and having the evidence needed to make an impact in court are two different things. You don't go pick someone up without having the evidence needed to make a case. Don't need a law degree to know that. Maybe this seems petty to you, but how many of you have watched your child go through treatment or consoled them when their friend dies from drug use-then you don't care how small time the dealer is. Been there and it sucks. Yes, my daughter and her friend were responsible for their use, and these folks are responsible for their sales and use. No one needs to feel sorry for them.

Sorry. These are NOT the drug dealers in Canby. You need to find the real ones.....and it is not too difficult if you open your eyes. This is ridiculous.
So step up with evidence instead of pointing fingers at the drug task force.

Maybe all idiots using drugs should grow the hell up and stop the shit. Cuz it does not get you no where in life and does not make you a good person. Congrats law enforcement! Thank you for getting them and there is a lot more out there that need to be put away. Some drug users and dealers, the ones who have kids.. what the heck is you damn problem.. this is not something to be teaching kids! Be a good parent and teach them the good in life.

Way to Go LawEnforcent! Im Sure Canby will be much Safer with the scum ball narc out of town. Did you know that the narc they had come to canby, sold drugs to kids, smoked pot with kids! Im pretty Sure he was the ONLY one who sold to kids. So Yes Canby is Much Safer without the Narc that was sent to our community.

This is total B.S. Any one who knows josh paige and robbi knows this. I cant believe the the pigs would want to draw so much attention to this. And love how they tell the media they were selling to children!! This is clearly a case where the pigs over dramatize events in the media to justify there expensive lengthy operation!!!!!!!! A operation thats clearly unwanted in the community!! Every town has there small time weed dealers,and every town town has a significant portion of its population that smokes weed!!!! ITs NORMAL111 So get over it who cares! Shame on the police for over dramatizing what really was happening . They should throw the pigs in jail for this.

being a family member of one of these i don't care how small the amount was sold if they kept doing it it would only get bigger so whoever is sticking up for these guys you are just as guilty. i have kids and they have kids it's not the way to raise them and it's embaressing to see a family member do something so stupid. i hope they sit in jail a long time no matter how little they sold....it's time to grow up and be adults and get real jobs and not take the easy way out of life!!!!!!!!!!

Its very ignorant and dangerous to believe everything the pigs tell the media!!! All of the people Im talking about have jobs and are very good people!!! If these people were out selling crack or E or acid to 13 year old kids I could understand. But we are talking about a setup to sell weed to a 17 year old!!!!!!!!!! WEED not crack not cocaine WEED people. Weed all ready passed the state house and senate and if not for a veto by the governor would legal for everyone with a doctors recommondation to not only smoke but grow.... So for all of you that think weed is the devil get ready cause the devil is coming soon legally to a town near your. Me myself and I shame on you for not supporting your family member you are the true scum of this country. Free means Free and if you want to live your life as a "loser" that your right as a human being! Nobody deserves to be set up and have their mug shot spread all over the media for this crap.. But Im confident they will got off with no jail time!!!!!!! throw the pigs in jail!!!

I am also a family member of one of the arrested persons. Yeah, not a real big shock at all. It was stupidity on all of their parts and it was only a matter of time before they got busted. They might not have been the biggest sellers in Canby but they made bad choices and need to pay for this.

i quickly went through the following when i saw this: funny, sad, embarrassing. I'm not embarrassed that I grew up in Canby. I'm embarrassed they made this out to sound like more than it is. Should they have been arrested? Probably. Should it be on the news like this? No.
