Thank you to the south-of-the-border residents for coming here and contributing to our society. Your hard work in the community has kept several businesses in operation such as, hydroponic stores, county and state government, moneygrams to Mexico and job security for our police, hospitals and social services. Keep up the hard work.

Just another shining example of how Pot leads to meth. Oh, and that poor disrupted family, how could they take the kids from a safe family environment and put them in CPS custody? These cops are SO mean!
They were just trying to make a living, I am sure they would have paid taxes...Poor, people they were profiled that is why they were busted!

Great job LE keep it up!!
Hey 'Thanks' don't forget all the school people and programs, probation too that benefit from job security, sad thing is there are about 15 Hispanic girls out of 20 or so in the high schools young parent program, so don't fret that job security!
Again great job law enforcement, keep it up and thank you!!!!

Pot's down the list of gateway's to meth,#1 & #2 are alcohol and cigarettes, 90% use among meth addicts as opposed to 20% who also use pot.

exactly. Point made. Easy, fast cash. Notice the connection with the Pot and Meth. I sympathize with his family. This isn't a family that is unknown. When more well known people are caught and it's made public how deep this problem is, perhaps people will wise up to RESPECT THE LAW. Regardless if a person feels a law is unfair, breaking it and insisting it be allowed isn't the way to get it changed.

The guy hasn't worked for years. Even before medical marijuana everyone knew that if you wanted to make fast cash, sell drugs. He had $50,000 mailed to him, and it looks like it has been going on for a while. I want $50,000 in cash, but Prison scares me and I want my kids to have morals. What about making cash the old fashion way "EARN IT" No sympathy here for Marky boy, and I know Mark and his family and like them all. I do feel bad for the rest of them, they don't deserve this.

There isn't any sympathy here except for the family. Were all 7 of these connected? All part of the same ring?

Goes to show you what pot and the money it brings in can do to families. What the public can do is turn in your neighbors that are growing-get them busted.

Dont you get it they were selling meth. Pot was just another part of their greedy enterprise. Your attidude is the same as someone who gets mistreated by one cop and then says all cops are bad.

Just more proof of the marijuana meth connection. The recent booking reports showed that a lot of the marijuana arrestees were also under the influence of meth or in possession for sale. Criminal dope dealers make no distinction.

And some may interpret it as get the dealers that are going way over the top.

You prove my point then. People who are ciminals are criminals by nature. For every one person trying to get rich with any drug there are thousands of people who have jobs, work hard, and smoke a little pot. These people derserve the freedom to smoke pot without fear of arrest, and they deserve to be able to buy or grow their pot from legitimate sources that are currently scarce because of people like you that think prohibtion

1) doesnt cost all of us a taxpayers and incredible amount of money

2) actually makes people not smoke pot when in reality it just makes it more valuable

2) addresses any of the problems you are complaining about regarding the drug itself

The article didn't mention how many of these people were in the country illegally. Are any on hold for deportation?

It is no secret that most meth users smoke pot, but most pot smokers dont use meth. In fact most pot smokers dont even like meth users.
