Good job getting these few. There are still about 50 0r 60 prominent names that should be added to this list of "bustees" though. Hopefully, this is only phase one of the operation and there will be more to come.

I AGREE WITH POVITch, THE ONLY REASON ALL THIS STUFF MAKES THE NEWS IS TO MAKE BAD COPS LOOK LIKE THEY DO THEIR JOB... AND TO MAKE THEIR SELFS LOOK GOOD MOST OF THEM IF NOT ALL OF THEM ARE JUST AS GULITY THE ONLY DIFFERANCE IS THAT THEY HAVE A BADGE TO HIDE BEHIND...

IF I understand this, a lot of my tax money was spent on this to try to stop stupid people from doing stupid things to themselves. Let me rephrase: to stop stupid people from doing stupid things to THEMSELVES.

Why is this a good thing for me? Before you start talking about all the secondary criminal activity associated with drug use, remember that most of THAT crime relates to the fact that drugs are illegal and therefore expensive.

I believe that some of that effort might be better spent detecting and solving crimes against persons rather than trying to make everyone a moral and 'good' person. I don't care what others want to put in their body. I've never done it so the only effect this has on me is to increase my taxes and reduce enforcement efforts against crimes that might harm me.

Thank you, law enforcement! I care about the people and families that drugs destroy, and you helped in this ongoing struggle. I'm appreciative.

Remember back when law enforcement could keep all property it deemed drug related. There were drug bust after drug bust and the departments shared all the goodies confiscated. Billions of dollars of planes, helicopters, trucks, cars were used to stop the flow of drugs. Did it work? NO - Did it slow down the drug trade? NO -
So why do we keep building more prisons and less schools and nobody blinks an eye.
We post more about bad schools and how they are run then how our prison system works and cost?
Whens the last time you posted on an blog on prison cost per taxpayer?

I say kudos for removing the pushers and cartels from the streets. I say kudos for keeping hard drugs off the street.

What I want to know is, what is the cost-benefit analysis in all this? Yes, there has been, what seems like a lot of drugs taken off the street since January, but a "small amount" of pot and an ounce of coke don't seem that worth it to me. I question why we can't spend our (I repeat OUR) tax dollars more wisely, as opposed to dumping millions, billions, TRILLIONS on organizations that have failed to meet a single a single outlined goal.

I like to think optimistically about law enforcement,(unless individual officers give me reason to feel otherwise) let's give them something better to do with their time than chasing non-violent offenders (which is why I make a distinction between the cartels and Johnny Toke-A-Bit).

And let's certainly not stand for things such as this:
