Just because you say so huh?
Personally, I think legalization is the answer. Let's flood the market so that no one can make a profit.

Yawn, sounds like somebody should tell the same guy you have $40 grand cash in your place? Maybe it would give you a new perspective about violent crimes.

Same goes for the other pot prohibitionists jerks who post such negative garbage about
victims of violent crimes. Karma awaits you....

Lets see, 45 lbs processed equals $100,000, and another 60 lbs on the vine equals $140,000. Gosh, I wonder what attracted the thief?

the man was intending to profit from an illegal drug. 45 pounds is excessive for medicine, 53 plants, come on? My tax dollars should not have to be wasted on law enforcement having to respond to this, let him die in his barn.

Victim of violent crime...?

You grow the illegal drug, you sell the illegal drug by inviting the criminal element to not only your home, but to my, and other Law abiding citizens County... and then you have the inane audacity to call yourself a victim...!?!
And look who's talking karma... a Law breaker pointing his finger.
Rhetorical question for you Jonny Gat... will you die for what you believe?
I have $40000... NO, make it $80000 cash in my home... you and your dope smoking illegal buddies could not bring me enough violence to satisfy my distain for your illicit activity!
"Karma awaits you..." Do not you and your hippie dippie buddies ever stop getting tired of pointing your finger at good honest family people and saying the word karma...!?!
Peactice what you preach, and die for what you believe like a man of honor... you do that, and I will have respect for you. So, until then... SHUT YOUR BONG HOLE...!

Yet another gorgeous day outside, absolutely a beautiful October morning... I'll take a walk around the neighborhood now... have a great day.

Sgt. Pepper, please don't blame the victim. If it was a member of your family who was violently shot on his private property you would feel differently. Now go get a job and stop being a hater.

Why not flood the market with heroin? Yes, the price will go down, but the resulting cost to the community will skyrocket. Your argument has no economic merit and looks at supply vs demand at the most elementary level. Please show me an economic model where "flooing a market" with a drug has resulted in an economic positive to the community. No, it simply makes the drug cheaper to the user, medical or recreational.

There is no victim. The person shot was not a member of society, he was a drug dealing law breaker. I'm happy that he was shot and lived, hopefully a lesson learned. I don't have to worry about criminals coming to rob my house of pot or money, because I have neither on my property. I earn my money and therefore I am allowed to deposit it in the bank without arrousing suspicion. I hope this happens more often.
