Yes please.

Keep sending the 1,000 pound loads with 1 million in cash as "decoys." Thats working really well and it makes going
Title 21 much easier.

As always, we thank you for your continued understanding during these difficult times.

Joke's on you chazzer, each agency will pocket $400K for this little incident.

Looks like money well spent. Silly drug runners, horse tailers are for horses.

No thank you! Maybe you would prefer to move to one of those states, that is, if you live in NC. Give an inch and the drug freaks will take a mile. I say lock em up for just an odor of pot on or about the person.

Oh I'm all for legalizing it and taxing it. Realize that if it is legalized and sold like cigarettes that the govt. will regulate it. In other words, the govt. would keep the THC level at around 6-8%. Homegrown would be treated like moonshine so if you grow your own Korean Monkey Blister, it would still be illegal to sell it.

IMO tax it and spend a majority of the money on drug treatment. But I would imagine that the revenue would be blown on other stuff.

However, legalizing weed won't stop the drug wars in Mexico. The cartels that are killing each other are fighting for trafficking routes. Its like if UPS and Fed-Ex got into a shooting war over who gets to use I-40.

It was not a "narcotic", it was Marijuana, it grows wild in WNC and just about everywhere. Why are Repuglicans and religious nutcases so afraid of Marijuana? It was legal in America until it competed with alcohol after the Prohibition of alcohol in the early 1920's. Randolph Hearst and some other corporatists wanted it made illegal, along with plain ol' Hemp. It sure makes for getting a lot of Sheriff Depts. photos in the paper and provides a lot of money for their departments. Ah, that "War on Drugs", creating military style police units and soaking up lots of tax dollars while alcohol is the biggest drug problem and causes the most problems, deaths and violence! Is there an upcoming election for Sheriff in Buncombe county/Henderson county? Seems like there is always a marijuana bust right before an election.
