Because that is what we should be spending our tax dollars on.
Should of went up there and got growing tips from the person.

Not that they (the police) had to perform a small clearing operation to get to the plants.
I bet they cared very little about the surrounding areas, as they do in every warrant.

This is just the prime example where the money goes to waste when our childrens' schools are going to waste, think about it.

Oh the horror!

Big deal, they should use the money and resources that they used for this to catch child predators and career criminals. A grow op in a field isn't hurting you.

Really, there is no good reason for Marijuana not to be legal. Gather the tax revenue from selling it get it out of the black market and regulate it, and spend money on things that matter instead of a failed war on drugs. Like fixing our 25th in the world education system.

What's wrong with this picture?

Marijuana accounts for thousands of felony arrests per year, at a cost of in the millions.

Law enforcement helicopters disrupt the peace of the wilderness, invades personal privacy and promotes the spread of cultivation to public lands.

State eradication programs destroy millions of dollars in marijuana per year -- revenue that is lost to the local economy and diverted to foreign suppliers.

The war on marijuana has deprived us of an economically valuable crop, cannabis hemp, a productive source of fiber, biomass, protein and oil.

The war on marijuana has cruelly deprived medical patients of valuable therapy for nausea from chemotherapy, AIDS, glaucoma, chronic pain and spasticity, migraines, depression and other diseases.

The war on marijuana has not controlled drug abuse. On the contrary, the record shows clearly that the crackdown on marijuana has fueled a disastrous cocaine epidemic. Studies have found that marijuana tends to substitute for alcohol and harder drugs, and that states with tough marijuana laws tend to have worse accident and drug abuse problems.

Marijuana legalization works. In the Netherlands, where cannabis is legally available, only a small percentage of the population are regular users, while opiate and hard drug addiction is lower than in neighboring countries.

The poor sheriff doesn't have access to a helicopter to search the area further, perhaps our friends at Cleveland's Own Fox 8 could donate SkyFox for a day, and get some pot cultivation in HD.

True.

The evidence for ending drug prohibition is there, too bad there are too many getting rich of drugs being illegal. Not to mention it gives government more authority over citizens.

I often point to the success Portugal has had in decriminalizing all drugs. You brought up the Netherlands. The proof is out there. Can proof ever overcome greed?

I can't believe that any American is for the government having authority over what you are allowed to ingest in the privacy of your own home.
