great job,its just too bad we do not execute drug smugglers.

so much for those who keep saying no one wants cheap mexican dope. even with it almost legal they still have a market.

"One neighbor says at least one of the men arrested worked to reconstruct and remodel homes"

So, how about going after the contractor who hired this criminal interloper...I guess his excuse will be that he had to sell this crap as a sideline because he got paid peanutes, huh? Were there any children at the house?

Time to legalize and regulate all drugs. Anyone who still supports the drug war is a moron.

there is no war on drugs. our gov makes too much money off them.

want to have a war on drugs,go after them all out take no prisoners,and do not have any dealings with countries that are more drug cartel than human.

it would take an all out effort at the borders it can be yet will not be done.

I think that instead of Police worrying about Marijuana, they should worry about the F*cking Meth problem that is tearing through this city. Meth Labs on every other street, and people stealing everybodys sh*t. I don't know about you but I would rather have to deal with a couple of illegal Immigrants peddling a little reefer, than having to deal with Meth Heads creeping around your house and garage at 3 or 4 in the morning looking for some sh*t to steal.

The police aren't going to pass up all that cash. The police dept. gets to keep all that money. That is after all the whole point of the scam that is the war on drugs.

I know it is a lot to be all in one place, but you look at how many meth labs are on the streets, and how many people are on Meth, Crack, or Pain Pills, I just think that the police should worry more about the Dangerous Drugs, and the Dangerous people that are in this town, not worry about Weed, and violent cartels in Mexico.

And I would bet that at any given time there is a lot more "hard" drugs on the street than Marijuana.

I agree with you about Meth. When I worked In Mental heath, we had many patients come in high on Meth. They were combative( with the strength of 3-4 people),They would do things unimaginable, they would come in with all types of sores on their bodies,... it was sad. Drugs play you, you don't play them.They will play you til they have total control .

What is your opinion on it being considered a gateway drug?

I don't believe that it is a Gateway Drug. I think that people use that as an excuse to why the started using other drugs. I have smoked weed since I was 16. I am now almost 30, and you don't see me hooked on Meth or Crack. I do believe that when you have smoked for a long time, there are some symptoms of detox that you go through. Such as headaches. But no I don't think that smoking weed will make you become a heroine Junkie.
