Oh yes, keep those prisons beyond full now!
Maybe we should spend millions of dollars to build more prisons for these petty offenders.
Or
Legalize weed and MAKE money from tax.
Umm...remember, Governor Bev is closing several prisons. Don't think she'd approve building more. Just sayin'...

how much tax revenue would that have been...maybe they could even buy salt for the roads next winter so we can all get to work!!
While legalizing it under the "great, now they can tax it and rake in the billions" scenario sounds good it won't work. Anyone can grow their own, which wouldn't mean that they'd make as much on it as they thought they would. The example I heard was tomatoes. Tax the crap out of em, make billions. Until people grow their own.

For legalization to gain a foothold one state will have to ease up on it then other states will catch on sooner or later.

thanks for the link.
seed trays w/ floresants; some metal halides and a bunch of brown plants just short of flowering.
what happened?
Not sure what these guys were doing, but it would seem they weren't taking their job very seriously. lol. They are probably embarrassed that these pictures made the paper.
If you click on the picture of the plants and zoom in, they also have a porno mag in the bottom left corner. hahaha

Cornbred, you always offer good insight into this subject. Would you say that more often than not the busts around here are people that don't know what they are doing like these guys, or are most of the busts "professional"? There are always stories in the paper about pot busts, but rarely do you get to see the pics. I would assume that most of the busts are people just trying to get a little free smoke for themselves, but I could be wrong.

I can't speak for everyone, but the only thing that I've seen in WNC has been stoner grows like this one appears to be.

The test, for me anyways, centers around power diversion and CO2 generators coupled with good, high qaulity metal halides. Just speaking for myself, you can tell if someone is going to produce good qaulity by looking at the equipment and set up without ever seeing the plants.
