Legalize opium. Bring back the opium dens. That will blow the minds of the stoners and meth freaks.

If heroin was legal people would stop killing each other for pot.

Pot is legal to grow and sell with a prescription and its screwing us all. We need to make that stuff a major felony to smoke, then we can put all the dopers in dopers prison. Get caught smoking weed, go to prison or deported to South America, and loose your american citizenship.

Seems hypocritical that alcohol is legal but pot is
not. They are so similar, both being depressents.
Only statistically the affects of alcohol are so
much more dramatic...even death. If one is legal
why not the other? What's the difference???

We already jail more people than almost every country in the world. Combining smokers with harden criminals makes them hard. Ask most judges. They want pot legal to reduce prison populations. You think that jailing a fourth ot a fith of California would really work. We are over crowded now and imates are treated very poorly. Do you want to do that to everyone who smokes. You don't need any smoke. Your brain is already broken as is your heart. Ohio sucks anyway. You must be sucking up to much industial air.

They should really jail anyone who builds in a flood plain and then asks us to rebuild thier ohio homes that were built in stupid locations. FEMA should never help ohio people to build on rivers at the expense of the rest of us. Ohio where rivers burn for days.

Getting busted, tried, found guilty, and jailed will be all the education they deserve. The $100,000 recovered is a bonus that will help defray the cost of putting these low life criminals away. If only busting all criminal scum always had such a bonus.

Of course, to a stupid pothead, because busting criminals has a monetary cost it makes sense just to let them go.

Your points are so important for you to make that you take leaps of logic in your responses to others. Why don't you respond to what people are actually saying or just make your own points without reference to others instead of mischaracterizing what others are saying as a launching pad for your own thoughts? Try to show some intellectual honesty and clarity.

I hope the ER staff fills in a few more details of the raid. What level of force did the anti-drug warriors use to enter the residence? Their surprise at the lack of weapons indicates they were prepared for battle.
Cannabis MUST be normalized if California is ever going to get its budget, drug abuse (including alcohol and tobacco), student "riot", and medical situation under control.
"About $100,000 in cash" was seized. How much taxpayer $ was used to plan and implement the raid. How much will be wasted in court, jail and prison for these two ambitious entrepreneurs?
I couldn't agree more.

Woooooooo Hooooooo! More dirt bag potheads go down, way to go Butte County Sheriffs! Keep up the good work! Chico's low life pot producing and smoking creeps are going down. The more the better. Keep our community free of criminal dope heads.
This right here is a prefect example of an uneducated, close-minded idiot. He claims that it's a great thing to waste taxpayer dollars in order to enforce the prohibition of a plant. Yet he neglects to take into consideration that the taxpayers will spent roughly $100,000 a year to incarcerate these two individuals, not mention the cost of the raid, court fees, etc. And I bet he's one of the same individuals who can't understand why the state is such a high tax jurisdiction and still can't balance the budget.

When will the general public come to the conclusion, that the 1992 California study came to, that the prohibition of marijuana is a bigger threat to society than the drug itself. To legalize this drug would be a major hit to drug cartels bank rolls. And for all you Christians out there I would like to remind you of Genesis 1:29 which states in the New King James Version , "And God said,“See, I have given you every HERB that yields SEED which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree whose fruit yields seed; to you it shall be for food," and this includes weed.

Because one of us has nothing to say and gets a thrill out of impersonating someone else because they have no ideas of their own to share. Sad but enjoy yourself if that's what it takes to make you feel something inside. Be well.

If people were not so fearful of pot we would not need half the pharmacies we now have in Chico, or one quarter of the liqueur stores. But here again people seem to want someone else to take responsibility and manage their lives for them. So our government becomes corrupt and greedy. Legalizing pot would bankrupt America, our law enforcement and medical-pharmaceutical industry surely would collapse.

Way to go Chico Officers, Good Job!!! Oroville just ignores those growers, not worth their time to go up in the hills. I too, am surprised they didn't find guns.
Gun go along with illegal gangsta grows... not sophisticated USA grown like this. Look at the wealth Humbold County has... no problem with bankruptcy there.
