Let's give a pat on the back to the brave officers for filling the legal system with more non-violent offenders. Way to go guys. I'm sure you'll all be kicking back with a brew and a bowl before the day is over. After all, we know that not all that weed will end up in the evidence room.

Why are we still arresting people for growing a plant? These guys sound like they would be a bigger threat to your refrigerator. Please, officer....go catch some real criminals.

I hate to beat a dead horse but...Why the hell is a plant that doesnt hurt anyone illegal. All these dumb politicians side step the debate by saying, "I think we need to do more research." They've already done the reasearch....weed makes you sleepy, happy and hungry,. It should be for adults to use responsibly just like alcohol or cigarettes or a big mac. Three things that have all killed more people than marijuana ever will.

Just when you thought the war on drugs could not get anymore ridiculous. Watch the first video of a small 5 ft tall female cnn reporter walking around marijuana trees in regular clothes. Then watch the government overkill as police officers in this raid wear HAZMAT suits and respirators to do the same thing.

I did not have sexual relations with that plant... Oh, sorry I meant to say she never swallowed.... Sorry again, what I meant to say is that I did not inhale. Man, this poinciana puerto rican plant is some good stuff. I think I am going to call Obama.

Dont cops have better things to do than bust people for smoking weed? Concentrate on the violent crime rate and repeat offenders.

marijuana will never go out of style. It provides too many jobs for law enforcement members, for the clerks, cops, booking people, guards, transportation people. This is big business and employs a lot of people. Make soft drugs legal and many people will be out of work. What would they have to pick on next?

Agreed. It has become a big business with those from the local level on up, addicted to the green, as in all the money it produces.
Don't forget confiscations of possessions (homes, cars, bank, accts etc)and all the protection and escort rackets going on.
How else do you think all that gets in the country? It's not because the delivery guys are so smart.
As the Corleone Family says, "It's only business".

If you push a dog into a corner, even a mellow dog, and taunt him, threaten him, eventually he will lash out and try to kill you in self defense.

It's OK to use the word shit, we all know what it is and what it means. You can leave your wannabe gangsta image at home, none of your homies will know the difference because they are probably as illiterate as you and thus do not peruse this forum.
