Maybe the toy store owners and their son had to grow pot to supplement their income from their toy business in Pittsfield's multi million $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ up-street downtown cultural district. Or maybe Pittsfield's multi million $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ cultural district is a breeding ground for businesses/owners supplementing their criminal activity. Like that couple who ran that tax subsidized teen beer blast eatery. A business supplemented with the most generous tax gifts in the history of the city, and that couple was charged with insurance fraud. There is something unsavory about toy store owners growing and selling drugs, and involving their 21-year-old son, even if it's only marijuana. Who knows how long this has been going on.

I was the volunteer assistant coach of the tennis team and never once did i see whit ingest any drugs near or with any students or during any matches or practices.Never saw him at any said matches/practices under the influence,either.I also play him during the summer months and i dont see how he could play that well "stoned" Maybe,just maybe,he was helping cancer patients with hemp oil,like rick simpson of Canada.Or maybe he has the disease himself.The oil is much much safer than any chemo or radiation. And to cancer survivor,keep on fighting the fight,i also beat the"C" recently,but i had it removed surgically.SO there..

Ya, ya. Bottom line dit dah, is that pot is illegal. The cops were not wrong. They did their job. Your buddy knew it was illegal and took the big chance and failed. Porn, alcohol, prescrips, yada yada. It's not about what is right or wrong survivor, it's about what is legal and not! Ps. I am willing to bet that pot did not save you from cancer, but did help for sure. Maybe just made you want to eat. Pot may just be a miracle drug for cancer and seizure victims, but we then should go to our government and insist that it is made legal for these purposes. Until then, the cops must do their job.

How much dope was the criminal justice student caught with? If I remember correctly, he got away with a slap on wrist. Maybe it had to do with the fact that he was a criminal justice student buying/selling dope. Who knows!

So did Meridith from Pittsfield she hit a man and his dog walking then took off left the guy for dead what did she get a slap on the wrist her daddy was head of the probation, friends with Capeless its who you know now a days, the is not equal as it should be for all. The case even went to Springfield, but still, certain people can run people down with their car take off and get away with it others get life in jail.

The couple got caught with 16,000 big deal thats what people with disabilities and welfare live off a year, it will cost the city more money to prosecute them then what its worth. Maybe bringing jobs to the area might help and please no more Walmart Ocean State crap we need good paying jobs if theres any left out there.

So let's see, he runs a toy shop, sorry, two toy shops, he was a teacher, and he ran an ice cream shop, and he allegedly involved/included his kid in his drug business.

But in another drug case, not this one, a different one, wasn't there an arrest of a school employee dealing or possessing illegal drugs on school property? Cheshire, Adams, or North Adams?

Well Pittsfield's officially unethical irrational, dysfunctional, hostile, threatening crummy former mayor saddled Pittsfield's taxpayers with NA cast off mayor for a snow job on the taxpayers. And Pittsfield's current crummy dysfunctional mayor hired a NA reject to clean toilets and he broke into a safe in city hall to steal from the taxpayers. And I wouldn't be surprised if they've already found him a new job. And two out of three thieves caught stealing fuel and other stuff from Pittsfield city yard are some other town's rejects working and stealing in Pittsfield. And even the woman running Downtown Inc. was someone else's problem when she was hired for a Pittsfield position. Parents of Drury students should be complaining.
