Just think if we had a Pot Wal-Mart like California is planning. If we really believe in limited government this would be ideal. Adults only, a place for growers to sell their product wholesale with out threat of arrest, all product tested and taxed, thousands of jobs, etc. Where is the down side?
I HAVE A DREAM, and I would like one of those "tester" jobs.

They don't say how the cops got into teh house or how they got the warrant. Would be nice to know.
All of this BS over a plant as teh cops and the gov't continue to do the pharma/alcohol lobby's bidding.

Quit wasting taxpayers money on this. I want the child abusers behind bars, the drunk drivers off the roads, the young guns off the streets, etc.
When is the last time someone died at the hands of a stoner?

No one would have grow ops like this if it were legal. Allowing anyone interested to grow a few plants of their own like people are able to brew their own beer would make the criminal element fade away quickly with NO government involvement. But, our government likes to protect their ranks, and to claw back money and material goods from Americans.

It doesn't matter what the people want, prohibition is good business for government. Just as was the case during ALCOHOL prohibition, Americans MUST refuse to convict in a court of law for marijuana offenses. The politicians didn't have a "moment of clarity" in repealing alcohol prohibition. They didn't have a court of law where they could convict. Jury nullification! History has repeated long enough!

Just wondering if the Paul Bunyan Drug Task Force wears flannel, suspenders and logger's hats? After a haul like this it's no wonder that they see a Blue Ox.

No, no...this is "jobs creation" in America now! It's measured in how many border patrol, judges, police, prison guards, parole officers and treatment center workers it provides jobs for. It matters not if the policies make sense or are highly injurious to individuals and society. There's no going back now, as the MILLIONS of people who depend on prohibition for employment are not about to say the policy stinks and that it should be changed. Another case of entitlement and government overreach. The actual substance involved and its potential caveats,(or lack thereof) has grown so far removed from the equation its laughable.(Well, sad too...)

I like amy beehive's answer. we wouldn't have all these people in jail for these (petty) offenses. We can thank Reagan for that, with some of the other Pres.s! And it's less if you do crack or coke? It has great medicinal factors AND is NOT a gateway drug!!!
