the cops are proud of this...a couple hundered plants...what a joke..i'll sleep well in my bed tonight knowing those scary pot growers aren't around...i'm sure glad the cops aren't getting those 13 year old punks with semi autos looking for someone to shoot so they can complete their gang initiation...what a waste of tax dollars and cops time...total BS!

look at happened when alcohol was made illegal
so much crime developed, women started going to speak easies; smoking,,,,the history channel did quite a program on what happened and how it changed our country.
certainly makes sense to legalize pot and get the controls on how it is made, and tax it. maybe do away with advertisment of all substances that are mind altering. including all the pharmatlogical ads in magazines and on tv.how many kids out there on ADHD DRUGS ?????????? just because the parent wants an all
"A" report card......
serve it all up in a plain white wrapper

I'd like to propose new legislation for marijuana users as well as other illegal drug users and providers.

The legislation would be modeled after Megan’s Law. The new law will make it mandatory for anyone convicted of illegal possession of marijuana or any other illegal street drug to register with local law enforcement. That way parents and grandparents, and other concerned citizens can look up on-line where the snot nosed, hacking red eyes live and keep the kids away from their slothful dens.

The second part of the new law would put a mandatory restraining order on each new convict requiring them to get no closer than 1320 feet (1/4 mile) from any school, playground, shopping center or place where children (under 18) congregate in numbers larger that five individuals. This is what is needed to keep the pot and drug using creeps away from our youth, just like we now do with the sex offenders. And yes, I consider them to be equal in their destructive abilities.

If you believe that every one is responsible for their own actiona, then all I can say i I hope your daughter recovers, but it's not the fault of any ohter person. Meth is not weed. If weed was leagel, the cops could concentrate on the serious stuff like meth, but unfortunately, the Feds have decided to go after pot and that's were the drug fighting money goes when it should be going after the meth production.

Why stop there? Let's have an internet registry for all drunk drivers, HIV positives, traffic law violators, pit bull owners, porn site surfers, hookers, anyone who was ever admitted to a psychiatric hospital, ADD & ADHD medication users, intoxicated indecent exposure perverts, underage drinkers and all unmarried people who have had some form of sexual contact beyond kissing.

Let's get them all now before they get us.

Apparently I do as do the majority of "voting" Americans otherwise the laws would be changed or repealed. And yes again, I do believe illegal street drug users and the purveyors thereof are as bad as sex offenders and pedophiles, becasue they destroy the lives of young children just as dramatically.

Perhaps the way you view life might be clearer if you got off the weed and its addictive influence?
