I guess the budget cuts are forcing the police to round up the growers for income

drug money is very profitable.

"Sad" I agree 100%!! They are defiantly making a profit and I wouldn't be surprised of some of the money came up " Missing" I think their are plenty other things they could be doing...Come to my neighborhood, you have kids with guns a couple meth labs that you can smell in the morning!! Find something better to do with OUR tax money!

It is very convenient that the dopers had their cash with the dope. Let's hope that the cops file for forfeiture of their home too. Making it a real win win situation.

Hmmm. Wonder how they got busted?
Real convenient that it goes down 1 day after the last bust.

Oooooh! Another big pot bust! And how about the murderers running loose? Oh, stoners are easier to bust, and you get to confiscate all that cash!

Man, what a couple weeks. Huge pot busts all over. It just does not get any better than this.
Oh yeah, they will lose their home. If they don't, it will be a travesty of justice.
Note there was a hypodermic needle found too. The silly notion (often posted in Topix -- explicitly or implicitly -- is that potheads, be they producers or consumers, limit their illegal drug consumption to pot.
What a laugh. Nearly every pothead I have ever known would ingest opium, crank, coke, psilocybin mushrooms, prescription pain killers, alcohol, datura root, opium, peyote or LSD at the drop of a hat.

You must be a pothead to think that the police do not pursue murderers vigorously and with every tool at their disposal so they can concentrate instead on pot criminals.

Further proof that potheads are complete idiots living in an idiotic fantasy land.

Hey to all you cops,why do you enjoy your job so much when taking down unarmed patients.Because when you get blown away,should we have empathy,compassion.The Sherriff,D.A. and,Supervisors are the real threat to society not the patients,hell no.You have guns and,think you have the right to invade our privacy.Where is the justice here?I hope all of you Sherriff`s burn in hell..........I am just the dawg to put you there,you will see.I am meeting with the Senator Aanestad and,if I do not get any satisfaction with them immediately then,I will go over his head to the Obama Camp.When they get to Butte County,Heads are going to role.I am coming you feel the heat Dect Handcock,Your intertask force has sucked in this county,it was supposed to be set up for meth labs,but busting the Medical Cannabis Community is like shooting fish in a barrell.Well,we are going to fight back.Maybe,you will ultimately be the ones who pay the price in prison.The jail is a incubator for diseases,hopefully yours won`t exaserbate.

you can buy a lot of doughnuts for forty-thousand dollars !i doubt that the price of reefer will go up because of this pot bust,there is so much of it.when these people get out of jail they won't be able to find a job,so they will have to sell reefer again just to be able to survive.

I don't see anywhere that these dopers are trying to claim medical use. There are some waste of human life out there growing pot to sell to poor folks in the ghetto and to kids. Not all pot is grown with the intention to "treat" medical patients.
