How much money did we have to borrow from China to bust this dope grower? Was it worth it...I doubt it.

Don't let looks deceive you! I am a Shifflett from Greene, and can proudly say I have a child attending UVa. Many people get busted for marijuana, not Shiffletts.

Congratulations on your child attending UVA. We're formerly from Greene and our daughter graduated from UVA with a masters in Civil Engineering. Proud to know another Green Mom who agrees with us -- not all Greene COunty people (including SHiffletts) are bad.

People should not sterotype other people just because of the last name.People are everywhere that has the same last names and It's not only the Shifflett's that makes the news. Are you ashamed of who you are you rotten ORANGE!!

I am a Shifflett with a Master's Degree from the University of Virginia. The surprising thing for me is the difference in the way that one is treated with the last name of Shifflett. There are a lot of Shiffletts - and a few deviant personalities in every family; I guess. And there are a lot of good productive people that should be treated with respect and not stereotyping.

I know someone who knows him. He's not a bad person. In fact, I'm pretty sure he was only doing it to help pay for his house bills. It's sad to see how this turned out for him.

Stinky Orange, I am a Shifflett. I've graduated from school, got a 2 year college degree, and have worked hard all my life. I can say the very same thing about my parents. One thing we do have and you don't is manners and an open-mind towards all people. I don't judge by names, but by character and actions.
2 year college degree?? Oh congratulations! You got a 2-year certificate from Piedmont Virginia Community College. I bet your family is so proud. I on the other hand, have a 4-year degree from a University and I work for a major corporation making copious amounts of money. My bi-weekly paycheck puts your life to shame.
You, and all Shifflett's are Inferior to me, so SHUT YOUR MOUTH
MY REPLY TO TWO ABOVE: UVA Mom - continue to be proud of yourself and your family ethics.
WILBUR -the person and ethics including respect of others is much more important than a 4-year degree from "a university" and working for a "major corporation". UVA Mom deserves an apology. Your last name isn't mentioned but every person deserves to be treated with respect.

If he was earning income, the only thing he should be charged with is tax evasion.(and some sort of regulatory fine) Of course it's illegal, but so is trick-or-treating on Halloween. Regulate it, tax it, keep it out of the hands of the real criminals and those that would sell drugs to children.(like liquor stores)

When 1 out of 3 people in Greene county is named Shifflett,the odds of a Shifflett being arrested is pretty high.

When are you pot heads going to get it? The government could care less whether you smoke marijuana. Virginia, a state that is still pretty stiff compared to others, treats simple possession of marijuana as a joke. The first one is a freebie and subsequent offenses are treated like a traffic ticket.
The problem with marijuana legalization revolves around taxes. A person, such as Mr. Shifflett here, can make a six figure salary and pay zero income taxes. Sure, I understand the whole "legalizing will lower the cost" argument, but also understand that if it becomes legal every other home will be growing weed in their flower bed instead of tomatoes this spring...meaning gov't regulation wouldn't become the cash cow everyone imagines it will be.
So, this is what we're left with. Mr. Shifflett won't spend any serious time in jail and will back in the miracle grow in no time!
