Thanks for the information. I was undecided until I read your post and went to the web site that you listed. I am now convinced that alcohol and tobacco are narcotics. It would be nice to see Sal Mon Ella fall out of love with seeing his posts in this forum, overcome his childish obsession with Marijuana as the "evil killer weed", and inform people that the real danger to life and health is alcohol and tobacco But I don't think he is interested in truth. His real interest lies in saving his job, which is in jeopardy because of the title wave of Marijuana legalization that is coming to the United States of America.
Sal, I really hope that you haven't been scared off. I looked forward to your inane comments for comedic relief. By the way have you or anyone else seen Officer James?

Wow, Sal you must be the other half of Joel. Your the doctor Jekyll to his Hyde. You see, you both are just as opinionated and spam up the posts it appears just to "hear" yourself. You just happen to be on the other extreme end of the scale. You do realize that not everyone that smokes marijuana is a worthless junkie right? It kinda seems to be the message you are posting back to anyone who disagrees.

There once was a man on his deathbed who, at the very end of his life, called his wife to his side and said to her,“Dear, before I leave this earth, there is something that I really feel I have to tell you. For a number of years now, I have been having an affair with the woman who lives across the street. I do not mean to hurt your feelings, but I think you had a right to hear it, and hear it from me.” The wife thought for a moment and then replied,“That’s okay; I know. That’s why I poisoned you.”
In so many ways, we have been poisoning ourselves by the policy we have chosen to deal with the critical problem of drug use and abuse. As I have always acknowledged, many of these drugs are certainly dangerous and harmful, but there are also separate and distinct harms that are directly caused by their prohibition. These additional harms might be tolerable if they actually stemmed the flow of drugs into our communities. But the opposite is true. Our drug laws have simply failed.
Our country’s attempts to combat drug use and abuse, and all of the crime and misery that accompany them, through the criminal justice system is not working. Drug policy reform is one of the most important issues facing this country and the so called “War on Drugs” is one of our country’s biggest failures.
I have reached these conclusions after spending nearly 20 years as a Police Officer in the State of California. I have seen firsthand that we are wasting unimaginable amounts of our tax dollars, increasing crime and despair, and severely and unnecessarily harming people’s lives, particularly our children’s, by our failed drug policy. In short, I have seen that our current drug policy is a failure, and I simply cannot keep quiet any longer.
We have been following essentially the same Drug Prohibition policy for many decades, and it has given us the worst of all worlds. Today there are more drugs available in our communities, and at a lower price, than ever before. We have greatly expanded the number of prisons in the United States, but all of them are overflowing. As a direct result of the enormous amount of money available from illicit drug sales, the corruption of public officials and private individuals in our society has increased substantially. We have a much higher incidence of diseases, such as hepatitis and AIDS, caused by the use of dirty needles, than most countries in the world. The “War on Drugs” has resulted in the loss of more civil liberties protections than has any other phenomenon in our history. Instead of being shielded, our children are being recruited into a lifestyle of drug selling and drug usage by the current system. And revolutionaries and insurgents abroad are using money procured from the illegal sale of drugs to undermine legitimate governments all over the world. We could not have achieved worse results if we had tried.

Look pothead idiots, if you want to be left alone, then don't frykin call the PD when the gangstas come shootin up your house and stealing your weed. And quit growing large quantities of dope that attract the attention of EVERYONE. It's the greed and low brain function of you people that has created this issue.
Legal or illegal, pot makes you stupid. No better proof than the posts on this thread.
Who calls the cops ? Even though the 215 people should have EQUAL PROTECTION under law, I subscribe to the theory to defend YOUR LIFE ,LIBERTY and PROPERTY (medication) with all necessary force !
If any gangsta's tried to rip of anyone I know, the cops will be putting those punks in body bags ,and you'll be paying to prosecute a 187 P.C. self defense murder prosecution!And since Med.marijuana is legal, an aquittal is in order!Some of the smartest Lawyers and Professiors I've known smoke pot!

I too was told that a high power bill IS NOT grounds for a warrant.
For those UNAWARE people,the task force has always went and conducted seminars with PG&E meter readers to look for unusual meter reads and if they smell anything like pot grows, etc. They offer& pay them rewards! Combined with their statement CI confidental informant and the high reading this is P.C. for a warrant!Also garbage people are solicited by them, mailmen/women.
