Northern Regional please note that many trees in Northern California now hold the remnants of marijuana growth containers. Marijuana now grows openly in the ground with the support of California law. In fact, I understand this year’s harvest is outperforming the grape harvest. As usual, Pennsylvania is about ten years behind on social trends. That is too bad.

They should have not did the article, but instead set up hidden cameras in the area and then watched for the people to come back to check the plants.
THe people are not going to come back now!

Fourteen states and DC have enacted laws that legalize medical marijuana, two additional states have favorable laws toward marijuana.

Decriminalization: The state has decriminalized marijuana to some degree. Typically, decriminalization means no prison time or criminal record for first-time possession of a small amount for personal consumption. The conduct is treated like a minor traffic violation.

Ten years...

How clever. So true, yorkbred. Shouldn't have said anything and just waited for the folks to come back checking on their plants. Sweet!!

And just how many is "this many", oh most excellent noted yorkbred expert on the personal consumption patterns of marijuana users?

Because the article didn't say, and the picture shows TWO.

Don't let any facts get in the way of the conclusions you've clearly come to without them.

One could "personally" use that over a long weekend.

Yorkbred has a great point. They should have used those infrared cameras that strap to trees, similar to what hunters use. These cameras blend in nicely to the scenery, don't have flash but instead use an infrared flash that is undetectable to the human eye. They could have setup multiple motion activated cameras in case one of the cameras was spotted. Now this will just be another unsolved, victimless crime for NYCR PD...

Even if they had caught the growers in the act, it would still be a victimless crime.

Once again the cloak of an anonymous post to protect the soulless coward you certainly must be.

I remain hopeful at some point in your lonely and miserable existence you have the ability to look inside of yourself and address the deep seeded flaws you exhibit to others on a near constant basis.

Innovative to say the least. Pa is behind when it comes to Marijuana. It is what it is, you all are behind in alot of things. When I think of Pa I think of "State Property". Judge Kennedy just found that Marijuana Activist guilty. Don't expect Pa to change its stripes anytime soon.

*sigh*, when will this country wake up? The only thing wrong here is that they were grown on private property.

I want every member of the York County Bar association, every sherriff, police officer, district magistrate and judge in the County of York to piss in a cup for me. the only way to get the legislation passed is to tighten the noose around the politicians necks.
