"If you go to Craigslist and type in '420'," — slang for pot related activities — "you will find a lot of people willing to trade marijuana," Patterson said.

I'm curious, the dollar is not inflation proof. Is pot?

Pot should be free of all rules, regulations, laws and restrictions. To buy, sell, trade or give away to anyone anywhere any time. Anyone who thinks otherwise is a fool and a tool to say the least.

The article fails to mention if the suspect was the one soliciting pot or if it was the police soliciting grow lights in hopes that someone might offer pot. The latter is entrapment and a huge waste of our tax payer dollars. If the cops are selling grow lights on Craigslist not only do they know who the dumb, poor growers are they get a chance to pocket some cash for the stuff that is just collecting dust in an evidence room. Crooks these police are. Shame on them.
Now you are making sense. Good posting!

Oh well. Law enforcement and judge time/money will go into convicting this person. CPS will have a chance to abuse a child that another family member would most likely take given the opportunity. That child is going to come out with some resentment towards the system. It is a terrible cycle all in the name of job security for law enforcement corporations and unions. Destroying peoples lives over marijuana is a pretty vile and cowardly thing to do given the fact that there are serious drugs and serious crimes that go unsolved every day. Sure it is stupid to offer weed for goods and services over the internet, however people do it all of the time, across a various number of sites. I don't know maybe dudes wife and kid were getting annoying and he needed a break. It is Paradise after all.
Sounds like you were there since you seem to know so many facts. But the blame where it belongs. The person did this to himself. And since EVERYBODY is doing it I guess that makes it right. Why don't you look up morals in the dictionary while you are at it. This 215 thing is a bunch of BS. You were given an inch in 1996 and you have taken a mile. If only you put that much effort in getting off the couch, putting down the bong, and get a LEGIT job. Out!

I agree David. If these "meds" are so important why would it be common practice to trade for other non-essentals? It's all about the money.

Trading medince for entertainment, must mean a case of over-medicated, next they will be trading for Doritos and a functioning remote.

Insight-fully brilliant and well said. This is a realistic way of explaining how law enforcement works and all of those associated with it.

Everyone knows you left out the wonderful parasitic social workers union, the rehabilitators. Rehabilitating for profit.
What is the name of the civil services union? Does code enforcement belong to it?
Pot should be completely legal in every way! Legal to smoke sell or give away, any where, any time to any one (on Earth)! Anyone against that is a fool, a tool and greedy.

So you agree that trading some wacky tabacky over the internet should carry a punishment of ruining the persons life and and destroying their family? I hope some corporations make an aspect of your lifestyle illegal so that you can see how it feels to be persecuted for your beliefs.
I guess Sean should have thought of this and put his family first before his greed. And how is this ruining his life? You get punished and get on with your life. And I hope the courts order him to take some classes on how to raise a child in a non-drug environment. I bet that kid test positive for marijuana.

Litigation is Americas new strength, an expending industry now that all of our manufacturing jobs have gone to other countries.
Every college student needs to become a lawyer, then America will grow strong again.
