Once again you ignore the FOUR meth busts noted in the story. Since your rant is that BINTF only goes after pot you ignore this to make your point. Of course you don't like your shortcomings pointed out. You have an axe to grind, I get it. Did your pot garden get busted?
No I did not read the complete article, and I should have. Sorry! Thanks! My apologies. However, these are still not big fish. I want the rope around the mafia types, the Mexican and other cartels. These guys are not worth the cost to taxpayers so much as the big timers. I can sit in my car in Chico and have watched these small time dealers. That is easy.
Why isn't the feds in this area busting some of these creeps?
By the way, I don't have a garden of pot, nor do I think people should be using it. I believe it is much more addictive than what is admitted, addictive psycologically. My question is, why is only certain occupations tested for drugs? Why not teachers, professorss, nurses, Doctors, attorneys, politicians etc. How is thiss equal justice?
Anyway, if you are one of the Bintf agents, thanks.

Round up all the pot growers and the meth will vanish.
The connection is obvious. 9 out of 10 pot busts find meth. 10 out of 10 meth busts yield pot. Citizens unite, flood the phones with the sites of the pot and fight the fight against meth.
I'm interested in your statistics. Could you furnish us some info on where you found this info.

Ooooooh yooo-hooo. Big pot bust, little meth bust. Hey coppers, how about going after the killer foreign gangs feeding the hillbillies meth? How about MS13? Geez what a waste of resources - dimwitted dumba$s cops too lazy and cowardly to go after the hardcore killer gangs.

You complain that they only caught small fish, and then you complain that the Feds aren't here catching the small fish too? you also say that you can sit in your car and see the small time dealers. Have you called it in? Why not? Are you willing to go on record as a witness against them? Do you know how the big fish are caught? Think about it. Now next time you are sitting in your car watching a drug deal go down, call it in. Get a description, license plate, something to help. Maybe that little fish will lead somewhere. You never know, but you have to be willing to do your part, too.

I've know people calling in on neighbors drug deals, pot gardens, etc. and NOTHING happens. I agree that Meth & hard drugs should be the focus but pot allows the criminal eliment in the mix.

Legalize Pot like alcohol and the criminals will not have the large market. Then the hard drugs will be easier to combat.

But then the prison will shrink and guards will be out of a job. Too many jobs depend on keeping pot illegal

Start testing teachers, law officials, welfare recipients. Anyone that draws a salary on the state or a community. The demand will drop and so will the abuse

Yeah start drug testing anyone who is a student at a public school! Chico State, Butte, the high schools. And test everbody who has a driver's license using public roads. And test everyone who files income tax statements! Make 1st offenders loose a fore finger so that can't toke, that'll slow em down.

your right the bntif fat assholes can't even do the job without busting some addict on the streets of Oroville, and scaring him or her to tell on someone selling meth if there so good why can't they sniff it out , whats really going ...Also instead of over crowding our jails and prisons with drug addicts they need to have 1 year detox recoverery centers and use the prison and jails for the real crimanials like child rapers and murderers. But really tell the truth its just an easy doller for the fat basterds to house drug addicts right, it will all come to a head and almost has, then what are they gonna do..lolol
