This is irresponsible. Law enforcement tends to artificially inflate these numbers for the purpose of grabbing headlines and securing promotions. 700 lbs makes the entire operation seem like it's a serious cartel-based operation in a national forest. 70 lbs could easily be had from less than 10 plants which are carefully tended on a fenced-in lot. It's a very important distinction.<quoted text>
Well, I have to agree with Sol. I know from first hand information having spoke to a Sheriff's Deputy that specifically told me it was 70 pounds approximately. So somebody made a typo somewhere!
How can we have any discussion of what's going on when we can't even trust the information we're being fed?
