While I'd like to agree that the cartels are in no way a good thing for America and the general safety of its citizens, gangs of all ilks are involved in the growing and sale of pot. This is too bad, as if it were legal, a person could grow their own small plot for personal consumption and TOTALLY remove gangs and cartels from the equation.

40 year jail sentences are EXPENSIVE. "Investigations" are EXPENSIVE. Task Forces are EXPENSIVE. All over a plant which has never killed a person in recorded human history. View the "war on pot" as yet another "bailout," as the war on drugs topped a TRILLION dollars long ago, and is a more expensive exercise all said and done than the recent bank "bailouts." Did you agree with those? Why then, do we keep propping up this failed war on pot that has been equally expensive and destructive? Go California! Vote it into the legal realm and watch the "problems" of pot disappear.

40 years in prison. For growing plants. That are legal in some states.

Well, they should have groomed and raped a 15 year old boy and been a lawyer. Then they would only get 12 years.

Gotta love that!

This is GREAT NEWS! Even if California votes to legalize, we are still going to rigorously enforce the Federal war on pot. You see, we, the Federal Government, feel this jobs creation program is highly successful and has been completely fiscally prudent. Any erosion of your rights such as 4th Amendment protections are a mere "inconvenience" to Americans which they fully understand and support.(Right?) The war on pot has brought more safety and security to our borders than we could have thought possible. Add to that, the many prison guards, treatment center staff, probation officers, border security jobs and all manner of "economic development" pot's prohibition has created, how can we reverse course now? We are prepared to dig our heels in and fight for our right to entitlements as government employees, and to hasten the complete erosion of our southern border on the back of pot prohibition.

Like Arizona's immigration response, we will staunchly oppose any efforts to create a sane response to a government-created problem. Be it litigation or brute force, the Federal Government will continue to spend your hard-earned tax dollars fighting pot. Rest assured. Its what we do.

The cartel obviously was upset over the competion. So the drug cartel confiscated the drugs and will have the Metro swat team sell it. They will give them 40 Years so they do not have to worry about the compation. I thought the metro task force was crack dealers not pot dealers. This must be for the local cops to sell.
