Only $20k in cash? With 295 plants they certainly had more money. What did the cops split it?

Couldn't you have just arrested the illegals but have kept the plants?

Now can we put up the dam fence. These fine upstanding mexicans are hard workers. Look at all the plants they planted and were just waiting for harvest time. So what was the real take, with all these grow houses, how much money will each county get from the house sales? They take the cars to right?

Waste of law enforcement on something that shouldn't be a crime. Legalize, tax and regulate, this problem would take care of itsself and take the profit away from the criminals. The problem is organized crime, not pot!!! Legalize it!!!

More fine upstanding illegals doing a fine job of illegal activities. It's time to take the forged green cards away and send then anyplace but here. It's getting time to do like the scarlet letter. Instead of branding them with an A use an I for illegal and it will make them easier to spot!!

Look at all the money that could have been saved: From the investigation through the bookings, trials and confinement.
