Should we really be spending tax dollars busting pot growers/dealers? It seems like GRPD's time could be better spend elsewhere.

Not hard to figure, pursue the easiest task. Wouldn't want them to over exert would you?

Way to keep that "killer" drug off the streets. Now time to go to the bar and binge drink and then drive home.

You would think busting pot growers would be on the bottom of the list of things to do.

It wasn't GRPD. It was KANET (Walker, Grandville, Kent County Sheriff) WZZM explains it better. You all need to realize, they take the dope, AND the money from sales. KANET MAKES money for the police department.

GEE.....leave these harmless folks alone. Doesn't the Gov't get it?? The people of Michigan do not care about POT. Whoever has not tried it certainly knows someone who has. I think it is a total waste of OUR $$ to pursue marijuana growers/users. They are just pissed about not getting any TAXES!! I bet the pot charges are dropped and they go to jail for tax evasion.

i wonder how much money was spent on the investigation vs how much safer we are now that 294 plants are gone..

say what? 30,000 worth of pot? "in a DEA daydream"
versus surveillance/officer pay/months long investigations/prosecution/pri son costs etc.
say 60000 worth of taxpayer money spent? "very conservativly".

what a deal.

why do you have to go and bust a marijuana farm? dont you have anything better to do than bust a farm that is completely harmless. and plus all that bud wouldve gone to people in kent county and now you ruined it. screw the drug force, and screw kent county police, you can all bite a big one. and to those who are facing charges, i am sorry for the ridiculous drug agencies and their stupid busts. come on, dea shouldnt you be worrying about the narcotics and not medicine? all the weed you took off the streets wouldve helped people through their days. ya know, its funny, some people need it to get through their day and you might have just caused a suicide because someone out there cant cope with day to day life without smokin a little harmless ganja. yea, you guys are the real heroes, and instead of helping peoples lives which you THOUGHT you were doing, you most likely killed somebody. way to go piggies.
