I agree with Sean in that if marijuana was legalized, we would return ourselves to the '60s which was the time when all moral values in America got lost in the first place.
And secondly, this guy had guns in his house, namely Ak-47s...I'm sure he had GREAT intentions, considering he only had to defend 3 tons of marijuana...
That and the fact that I live near the incident doesn't help much.
I would have to say that moral values are gone right now. Just look at what people put up with these days. T.V. has become a joke teaching kids things that we never would have learned 20 years ago. News stations are responsible for creating news instead of reporting it. We left moral values on the side of the road a long time ago. Turn off your T.V. every once in a while and sit down and talk to your kids so, they don't walk through life ignorant. That's why we have politicians running their business on us because people are more worried about what Britany Spears is doing than the important issues we are faced with today.

You can't be serious. If pot were legal, pot use would not go up. It would drop. As it did in Amsterdam. They've been studying the situation for over 30 years. I'm also guessing that you have never smoked pot.

I don't know who you are, but my best advice to you is to be quiet. If you know JT right now then you should know why he is in jail, has nothing to do with drug charges so why in the world would he set somebody up what benefit would he get out of that? Matt knew what he was doing and knew the risks, so I think that you should be quiet and keep your comments to yourself. GOOD LUCK JT, WE LOVE YOU!!!

Georgetown Square..yeah I remember...I have known Matt since H.S. we hung out alot back then......I am speechless about how deep he was into the dope game......Everyone, wether you like pot or not should know that if you are able to get your hands on that much, that says enough right there. It sucks to hear he got picked off, Im am guessing someone he dealt with found out he had gotten that much recently...and informed, thats usually how that wqould happen they dont want the guys he is distibuting too, they want his supplier..if they had been investigating him for that long they would have wanted to bust him with the most he would have. It looks like mexican brick that would most likely be a semi direct and dropped off.....They were looking for anyone possible to get into his that harlan house.....it was a day he drove too fast....He was never scared of anything....he was crazy....he wouldnt start anything with anybody unless you started it with him. Behing georgetown bowling alley that kid was talking a lotta smack....Mcchesney shot at the ground and it bounced up and hit the kid in the groin.....I was there.....But that was back in the day.....Anyone find out what could have been in the 4th safe..? that and how did they get into the other 3? Well, he will be getting some time for this, but he has been involved for a long time, its been his life... I hope he put some money away for a defense, he is going to need it.

Joel Taylor is a KNOWN SNITCH! And he is in prison and not for drug charges but he got a weak sentence for being on parole. People know for a fact he snitched. So take his cock out of your month or you can be buried with him.

If marijuana were legal, as it should be, there would be no need for:

1.) Snitches
2.) rip offs
3.) buying pot in bulk
4.) drug testing of employees and subsequent job loss for the smoking of a joint 2 weeks ago.
5.) discussing this subject on a forum.

If marijuana were legal, as it should be, there would be:

1.) A surplus in the federal budget (overnight!)
2.) More jobs available to the unemployed
3.) A more peaceful country
4.) More room in jails for real criminals like thieves, murderers, rapists, gang members, mafioso, child molesters, corrupt police and politicians, money launderers and other scumbags like these.
5.) An increase in tourism.(Not that we need it, be we are a capitalist country after all).
