Waste of taxpayer's money. "Drugs are the root of all evil". No, money is. Why bust people for pot? Don't you behind-the-times, country bumpkin PIGS realize that marijuana is LEGAL (in many places) and DECRIMINALIZED (in KY) in MOST of the nation AND world? All you are doing is wasting money, overpopulating the jails, and making the economy shittier than it already is. These people BUY things and put money into legitimate business owner's pockets.

Kentucky, leading the country in dumbassedness. Stay in the past, retards.

Ok, so the Sheriff's Department knew where these individuals were for a long time? Right? But had to wait for a photo op. before they took them into custody. I mean really. These individuals could have been picked up quietly and a lot safer for the Lawenforcement officers. But No. The Sheriff's office once again stages a grand media photo opprotunity. This isnt Lawenforcement it is being a media hog!

I see what you are saying since you report being in California. We all know how their economy is doing. Good thinking "Stupid"!

Most people only have X number of dollars to spend per month correct? So for them to buy drugs with a portion of their money what would you suggest they not purchase?

Uh, those people MADE money on pot and stuff. They didn't SPEND it. You aren't too bright, huh? Those people bought LEGITIMATE items and services on a daily and monthly basis. Now they are a burden instead of contributing. Simple economics.
