"ammunition for a .30-caliber automatic weapon"? Couldn't it just as well be ammunition for any .30 caliber weapon?

Heat lamps? Either the police are idiots and don't know a heat lamp from an HID lamp, or the owner is an idiot and wasn't going to be producing anything "high-end" at all. Actually, now that I think about it, the police are idiots either way.

Narc. Why did she need in there so badly to begin with? If someone tells you they're keeping a "alligator" why the hell would you go in anyway, to feed it cheese and ride it around with a little saddle and a hat on screaming, "I AM THE GATOR MASTER! Woo-HOO!"? Wait a minute...why was she boldly venturing into the second floor of someone else' house without permission anyway? Sounds a wee bit like trespassing.
Not really. She was invited into the house, therefor it can't be tresspassing.

I almost wish there had been a gator up there, or at least one of the dealers with a gun handy. What gives her the right to just go snooping around someone else's house?
This is not good because noisy neighbours around the world will read this and feel it is their duty to go snooping if they think anything vaguely suspicious is going on instead of calling the cops like they should.
Anyway. It should be legalized. Then you wouldn't have to worry about growhouses like this being operated.
There's a more extensive article in the Delaware County Daily Times. The woman was not a neighbor. She saw the pot while living at the house. Why this site used an article from a paper in El Paso, Texas I have no idea. They've used the Daily Times before. Why not this time??

She called the cops after being kicked out of the house, which could be construed as doing the right thing for the wrong reason. A selfish reason, but, hey, if you can't do the time, then don't do the crime. A couple more Darby schmoogs off the streets when they get them. And Muslims as well. Good riddance.

What a waste of time, resources, and lives to investigate, arrest, trial and jail people over marijuana use.

The United States has ~2.3 million people behind bars (highest percent of population in the world). China, which is even four times more populous than the United States comes in second with only ~1.6 million people in imprisoned.

There is a problem in the U.S., but it's with the legal system - not marijuana.
