thank god-2 more dangerous desperadoes removed from society.how much money in these fiscal hard times was wasted on these 2 hardened criminals.we need to get our priorities in order.
And they found how much money???? where did it go???? Yeah, that's why the police continue busting these grows... the county makes money unless the state or fed are involved then the money goes there.

When I was visiting Licking County Ohio a pot bust found over 4 million yes 4 million dollars hid all throughout a farmhouse where the big grow was. The City & County didn't get any of it... all went to the State??? Feds?? ya think??? It takes a lot of room to hide 4 million dollars. The pot grow was big and mexican gangs bigger with guns.

"Authorities were surprised that no weapons were located. "
Authorities are stupid then. Because anyone familiar with the effects of marijuana know that people who smoke it are not violent. Haven't we gotten past the whole 1920s crazed marijuana smoker myths?

if you legalized pot that wouldn't change a thing. the people who are growing it now will still continue to grow it. they dont obey the law know so why would that change if they leagized it. they would not go to the local store and puchase thier taxable marijuana. hell no they will still grow it ilegaly because it is cheaper. these people that got arrested werent growing it for personal use and thats were the crime is. if they had the legal six plants they would have had nothing to worry about.

Dont be so quick to belive everything you hear on tv. This is the media we are talking about and they have a distorted perception of reality. Have any of you considered this may be a legal medical marijuana co-op?

Your agument is indetical to that of the proabition people. Legalizing booze ended the criminal involvment in brewing and distilling. Try to use your head and learn from history. By the way, the lawyers, doctors and engineers I smoke with are pretty darn smart.

Further proof that idiot dopers can be found in every walk of life. It is not a prerequisite to be "trailer trash" or a HS dropout.(My apologies to trailer dwellers, that slur is completely misplaced and unfair.)

Actually, only opium would be legalized under the logic referenced above. Opium is a plant, just like marijuana, heroin though is a chemical extract of opium. Therefore, heroin would be illegal just like hash oil, LSD, and cocaine while marijuana, opium, ergot, and the coca plant would be legal intoxicants. Your insinuation that the biblical logic presented would justify the legalization of heroin is what is referred to as a red herring, which is a logical fallacy.

It's time these wasteful and archaic pot laws are overturned. Too many people have tried it and know it's not even as bad as legal alcohol. I am not a pothead, and I am also not stupid. What I do realize is that the big corporations, who don't give a crap about your health, cannot charge you for something you can grow in your kitchen window. California, you want out of this economic crisis, fast? Legalize it, and those who don't bother to grow their own can be taxed and your budget woes will, well, go up in smoke.

Jules,if you research the archives of our US Supreme court,you will find that in 1969 they voted the law down for being a catch 22 for the doctors.They had to have cannabis in order to apply for the license and,it was illegal to have it.Even though it was struck down the DEA got away with throwing it into the 1970 drug act as a schedule one drug.I wish you would all please understand that all street drugs are available through your pharmacy(all).Ask yourself before 1937 there was no tax on our herb,why should there be?We request a full decriminalization of Cannabis.Although this will never happen,I am talking with Senator Aanestad`s office to acquire a sanction to go forward with the good graces of our state.We believe we can help to lower the crime rate considerably.Should we have a community grow those that sign up will receive five pounds free at harvest.The balance will be sold for forty dollars an ounce to outside patients.Half will go to substantiate the grow and,half will go to children`s vegan lunches,child dental programs,tutoring programs for children,Homeless shelter(staffed with nurse).

Spoken like a jailhouse lawyer. You'll soon get plenty of time in the pokey. You and Ben Dover Bubba can ask for soap on a rope for Christmas. Hey it might be hemp rope. Meanwhile life in prison for dopey dope growing co-op drug dealers for every shooting and theft that kills in their stinky secret dope growing meth cooking co ops.
