from weed?
I would say only higher costs for sales of twinkies...
lumping weed in with "drugs" is nonsense.
as compared with alcohol? now THERE is a drug with a high propensity for abuse with NO KNOWN MEDICAL benefits.
But to prohibit does nothing but create criminals and millionaires of those that subvert the law...take for example Joe KENNEDY during prohibition.
So I guess on the "bright" side, this war on drugs may produce the next billionaire family that runs on a socialist platform.

What about a Village trustee whos son got kicked out of a Florida school for selling drugs?(Dewy) and that same trustee wants to cut the PD (Scott Falzo) You have to wonder???????
You are an idiot! That Tampa student stole a bag out of a car that obtained a cell phone an ipod and a perscription bottle that had 2 pills in it. Get your facts straight he might have been stealing but he wasnt selling perscription drugs you moron! The chiefs sons are apples that fell way away from the tree. One is known to be a subscription drug user, buyer, and seller. The other one looks like he is perminatly stoned and just recently got caught for breaking and entering at woodstone. I still have not known of Scott (the chiefs son) to face any repercussions of assaulting those police officer "its who you know and who you blow"

I Care you might want to get your facts straight, this isn't true.Yes he did get in trouble for taking a bag and was punished for it. Was not kicked out of school finished 2 complete years then transfered because his dad had cancer.I know the family well and in no way did they try and hide this. I guess you should try and dig up something else I LIE.

Concerned citizens (don't think so) more like confidential informant
who is willing to go to any lengths to beat a D.W.I. rap, I think that if the police are going to use an informant it ought to be someone that has a good reputation, not someone that is already buying recreational drugs and has even been caught trying to steal a car. Maybe these are not the people she was buying her own stuff from but she sure doesnt mind throwing them under the bus just to keep her license,this girl should take her punishment like everyone else and not make herself look like some martyr.
It shouldn't matter how the police got the information- they put drug dealers- criminals- out of business didn't they

Personal attacks again oh my. And we wonder why no one wants to run for office.We all have kids who screw up and lets not forget we were all kids once. I bet if we had the internet when we were kids, there would be negative postings about us.Lets face it the budget is out of control.

Jack have to agree with you someone finally steps up and says the budget is out of control and you dig up any dirt you can find on him. His kid did screw up faced his charges didnt try to get out of it and didnt go undercover to have his chanrges thrown out. Do you think that he let his dad know ahead of time that he was planning on breaking into a car?(Doubtful) All you do-gooders need to stop blaming the parents for what their adult children are doing.Scott keep speaking your mind, youre the only one on that board with enough stones to it.

I"ll tell you why, the same reason he has allowed his kids to run the streets, live wherever, smoke whatever, drink whatever & deal whatever....Notice how many "friends" have gone down around that Family Tree??? Lots of lives ruined, an overdose, a shooting,a beating....just cross over to the Bratt side or State Trooper side..."Catch me if you can"....That's the message loud and clear...Party on! These kids think it's a game ...hopping from one jurisdiction to the other...keeps the police hours up there and makes fools of the authority, what little is left!

Why is it when ever a Board in BF tries cutting the budget they bash the Trustees and their families. BF has been out of touch for years with their services. Now with the economy they need to adjust the budget with the times. It does no good to blame the parents for what their kids have done ,especially when they are adults. I moved from BF years ago and there was rumors then about police corruption. Some was true the Gray family for example.This dept has always been in the spotlight, they always seem to hire misfits who couldn't perform in other towns. This is also true with the Town and Village managers. BF wake up and smell the roses things are tough out there . A few adjustments won't hurt. I have a hell of a lot more here in Randolph at the fraction of the taxes.

You really think it doesnt matter how they get their information? What about these kids that are patted down because they're carrying a backpack or falsely accused of drinking because they have a water bottle in their hand. I have lived in this village my whole life and have never seen another place that was so anti-children in my life. There is nothing here for the youth. We cant even give them a decent rec-center. Lets give the kids of this community something, instead of coming up with clever ways to attract tourism or arts or even sinking money into the hotel that will probably never be used for anything that will bring income into the village. Have you seen the average age for a hardcore dealer? try reading the court news. Most of the people are in their 40s and 50s. The police shouldnt be busting kids with backpacks because someone calls and says so. Not all these kids carrying backpack and water bottles are slinging crack in the "Hood"

Opium (Poppy Plants)is a natural plant also. So heroin is OK? Pot as well as many legal or illegal drugs are "Mind Altering". That is not a natural state to be in, unless you are prescribed meds for a specific medical purpose.

Marijuana is illegal. If you disagree with that, get off your pothead ass and get it changed. Until you do so...it remains illegal and it is expected of the police that they arrest those that traffic it.
Some of the arrests were for marijuana, but the others were for regulated prescription drugs and prescription fraud. I am only upset because they released the little [email protected] to their parents afterward.
I hear the argument all of the time. "When did you ever see someone arrested for smoking wed and driving (DUI). Well if there is probable cause like the Officer stopping a vehicle in a radical way, and can smell pot smoke, they "MIGHT" get arrested for possession. However, they are not tested for being under the influence of an illegle substance and keep their drivers license.

Double Standard........

just to pop in here...
heroin is a chemically manipulated substance found in a natural plant...
many pharmaceuticals are developed in a similar way...
the point is that you can take a poopy and stick it in your pipe and you would get nothing...
same for the coca plant...its candy until you make it into coke...
pot is literally just a plant...

beer is also mind altering substance...
so is camomile...
caffeine...
nicotine...
tv...
