Tis really a shame.. The cops taking this mans lively hood like that.

Have we hit the 30 billion mark on tax payer money wasted of the war on drugs yet? Gotta be close. Lets not forget to include the National Guards' contribution. You can NOT spot coke, heroin, barbiturates, meth nore any of them nasty ass drugs that actually kill people from the air. Job Security at its finest!

Good Job!

What about the older guys in town selling pot?Been doing it for years and they get away with it.Just because one of them lives in a nice house on a hill doesnt mean what he's doing is right.I know Mark was wrong,but let's catch the ones selling it too.

I totally agree. We need to waste more tax dollars taking out pot dealers. Not like our parks need any maintenance.. Not like our roads could use a fix. I'd much rather see my dollars going towards a loosing pot war than maybe using it to catch DWI peoples. I'd rather my dollars go to fuel a helicopter so the po po can take joy rides looking for pot growing than taking out meth labs and crack houses. I'd much rather have the tax dollars going to stake out peoples homes because they enjoy their evenings with a little puff puff than to have them use the moneys to stake out Welfare/SSI/Food Stamps fraud.

Good Job! We, the American people are so proud of our local Government!

State lost 300 million in cigarette taxes. States reply? People are quitting!

Totally has nothing to do with the thousands of bags of smokes that leave the Indian Reservations every week. Hmm, a bag of full flavors that taste like mnarbs for 12.50 which equals to about 11 packs Vs. paying $75+ for a carton,$75 being the cheepo's.

Glad I am the clueless one here.

Seatle Washington had the largest hemp feast in the United States this year and the guest of honor was the mayor. Why hasnt the government shut them down? They made thousands of dollars. I would call this double jeopardy and should be challenged in court. Is the State above there own laws and federal level? Why are they different around here?

They ought to have a war on Welfare. Imagine if they had a war on welfare and everyone that did not finish school, paid their share of taxes, had a job and contributed to society was banished? Imagine getting rid of people who suck society dry with their ignorance, their laziness, their sense of entitlement? Put them all in the ovens.

Sounds good but, We'd have to start with wall street and the bankers. They're the reason everyone has been giving up.
