Thankfully the cop is okay and the bad guys were rounded up.
If you think Marijuana is sending Lynbrook down hill your NUTS..I think you might be using Sarcasm. If not, Marijuana is definatly not bring down Lynbrook..Its the Movement of the Neighborhoods...They might be just hoods soon.

I doubt pot is all that he sells! He didn't buy the Mercedes with only pot money.
Oddly enough, I know a lot of guys (from back in the day) that sell just pot. They have TONS of money. Kinda sucks when you work your ass off and they have way more money and free time...but I guess that's life.

Either way, running from the cops is always a bad idea no matter what. With all the technology today you WILL get caught.

The SELLER tried to run the cop over, not the buyer.

<quoted text>I think it has more to do with the dirtbags selling and buying the weed on the street. Quality guy who tries to run over a cop and speeds away in a residential area. Keeping scum like that off the streets makes it safer.
Hey, the only dirtbags are the ones selling. Us buyers are getting screwed. Wake the F up America and follow the example of Amsterdam. MAKE POT LEGAL!

So, "Huntsta", when you get mugged, or your house is robbed, or someone beats up your kid, don't bother calling the police whom you so obviously hate! I wonder what happened in your life? My guess is that you've been busted a few times, and are just a little sensitive, aren't you?
