How on earth do we know so surely it was a hispanic male if thet fled. Just because its a pot grow does not mean the individual is hispanic. For all we know it could have been a sun scorched, very much caucasion. They grow too, or I should say theyy are the owners of the grow.
I was about to say it was because he ditched the police so easily, but then I realized that was probably racist.

It's all a Government Conspiracy. During the 70's they found out through Ludes that if the population was slowed down it had people stop and think about things. They couldn't have a population that had time to think. soo..
They came up with meth. In the 80's and 90's they pushed it even on our children through the pharmaceutical company's. Now everyone is rushing about in this direction this direction. All too busy to think about nothing.
Then they institute fear into the populace. Fear of losing every Individual right a person has.
"War on Drugs". God it's sick.
Got the Pict.? Now introduce the "Net". Have to keep something around to keep us all busy.
Ooh must be my med time. sorry, random thoughts.

Truthfully, most Meth user's treat MJ like any other commodity. To a Meth user anything that she/he thinks is of value for the next bag/bindle what have you, don't matter if it's pot.

The person I quoted as BS did not say meth makers would be selling pot. he said that pot growers would switch to meth making if pot was legalized and I know for fact that "MOST" pot growers/users detest meth as much as anyone else out there. Yes a lot of meth users smoke pot to equal out there high but very few pot growers do meth. You need to read the posts before you respond.

All these folks think that legalizing it is going to "fix" it. If it is legal? They will grow it in the valley on flat land with easy water. The giant sucking sound you hear is the pot dollars leaving Lake and Mendocino County.......oh......oops, no that is not right.........becaue the present growers are here so they can grow without paying their fair share of taxes..........

Gawd! Get off the tax BS! Is that your only complaint? It makes you sound jealous that your not getting away with it too more than anything else. WAAAA...I have to pay taxes and they don't..waaaaa! Get a life.
Most of us are interested in legalization to lower the prices to stop the cartel corruption and crimes like murder. Not to make sure taxes are paid. IMO saving lives by eliminating greed from prohibition is more important than taxing a flower.

people get their booze money and people get thier cigg money some how some way people who want something dont go without ...you dont hear a smoker going without a cigarete for too long or a drucnk going without booze for too long some how they get the money for what they need.so i smoke an 8th a day that cost 50 buck so i grow it instead of pay for it off the streets i save x amount of money .my husband does the same thing so he saves x amount of money and we grew for two people who could not grow for themselves and they save x amount of money so all this x amount of mony adds up to 73,000 a year.now if you smoked would you grow it yourself or but it off the streets.

It just pi ss es me off when all these anti cannabbis people beotch moan and groan about growers not paying taxes yet they don't say one thing about how the taxes they themselves pay are used to fund a failed drug war. The drug war has accomplished nothing. Use is up. price due to high demand is up and it has all caused such a greed that violence is now up too yet all they can find to complain about is that some grower didn't pay taxes.lol Jeeze! The answer is legalization of pot. Period! Not taxation. That will just keep the price high so that greed never leaves. Just legalize it. Period! It can't kill anyone. It's virtually harmless. It makes no sense to keep it illegal.

OK, so you just admitted you were a commercial dope dealer. But I thought hubby was a tweaker. Isn't that what he got busted for the last time.

You want to legalize so it is easier to use. You get off it and get a life, you might find there are a lot more important issues that you could involve yourself in, you myopic fool!

I use at the advice of a doctor. It's medicine for me. As for easier to use? For who? If it were to be legalized tomorrow would you use it? if you wouldn't why do you assume others would? In countries where it and other drugs have been legalized, use went down. You really need to do some research and realize that pot isn't bad. It became illegal due to racism and greed. not because it was a harmful substance. And that is 100% fact.

Make MJ legal and real farmers in the sac valley would put the large grows in the hills out of business and the Mexican workers will work here and pay taxes just like the farmers would on the crop
