The original poster was not talking about happy go lucky pot smokers. He was talking about a parent exposing his children to an illegal activity. You are right - I have yet to see a headline reading "Entire family killed in head-on accident involving a pot head." That's not what he was talking about. I think we have lost the drug war long ago - I believe they should legalize all of it, tax it and let anyone who wants to destroy their minds use it. Then when your insurance rates go up, cause not only are we paying for the people with cancer from cigarette smoking, we will be paying for all the idiots who no longer have any brain cells left to care for themselves. But, that's not what the original post was about.

<quoted text>The original poster was concerned that the children were being exposed to an illegal activity. By all means legalize it and then daddy might not possibly be able to make the bucks to support his family because any and everyone could be growing their own.. then, of course, daddy might have to get up and get a real job. I said nothing about alcohol - I did not start this thread and he did not mention alcohol or second hand tobacco smoke. If you would take the time to actually read the original post and try to comprehend what he is saying you wouldn't be making an ass out of yourself by jumping all over me for replying to him. I did not equate anything with violence - I merely stated the original reason they came for help and their concerns for the police finding daddys pot. Quit speed reading through the posts and let some of it sink in.
The original poster wanted to know how to snitch on a neighbor growing/using weed. NOT A GOOD IDEA! SNITCHING gets people killed. Many people do things that are legal and even more dangerous than grow/use weed....THAT WAS MY POINT. Have you considered, for even one minute, what would happen to that family if daddy went to jail? Just like prohibition in the 30's, it was the VOLSTEAD ACT that spawn the corruption and violence.

As far as legalizing marijuana entirely, if it was, it would create a new class of entrepreneur, just like these people, and might provide daddy with a job.

IGrow: Walmart of weed opens in Oakland
Business
January 28, 2010|By Matthai Kuruvila, Chronicle Staff Writer

Call it the Walmart of weed.

In a 15,000-square-foot warehouse just down the road from the Oakland Airport, an entrepreneur is opening a one-stop shop for medicinal marijuana cultivation that's believed to be the largest in the state.

Don't know the first thing about growing pot? The folks at iGrow have a doctor on site to get you a cannabis card and sell you all the necessary equipment for indoor, hydroponic cultivation - from pumps, nutrients and tubing to lights and fans.

Don't know how to set it up? For a fee, on-site technicians will show you how to build it in your home and even maintain it weekly....

Myob is not the best solution when children are involved. I work with kids - when I first started a co worker and I found out that a young girl was having to endure her daddys tantrums by being burnt with cigarettes and these burns were not hidden from view. They were on her upper torso right under her neck. We turned the information over to the proper authorities and they investigated and were making visits to the home. They did not remove the child - she was happy about the change in her life. No more burns. Until one day when she reported to us that she had wished she had never told us anything. Not because she had been taken away, but because her daddy had started a verbal abuse - telling her it was her fault because the social worker was visiting and this would make her momma cry. Christmas break came, two weeks off. For this little girl it was three weeks because her so called father was burning her again. Don't tell me about daddy having to go to jail.. people like you think it is preferable that the child stay with the parent and be forced to put up with the abuse until when....they are dead? Yes, I am off topic, sorry to all, but you....great injustices occur when people of good intentions do not speak up. When you break the law you run the risk of going to jail, so you feel it would be better to let law breakers run scott free because it might break up their family? If they cared about their family they wouldn't break the law in the first place.

Yup...you're off topic. There is a far cry from reporting physical, child torture and snitching on someone for growing weed. You can't see that? You have set up a false dichotomy and I'll not buy into that. Black and white thinking is a sign of immaturity.

Law breakers remain scott free IF they work for the government. Nothing happened to Scooter Libby. Nothing happened to Olly North. Nothing is happening to the banks that launder all the drug money.(In fact WE bailed them out) The fact is that the U.S. comprises 5% of the world population but holds 25% of the world's prison population. The fact is that the U.S. is PRIVATIZING PRISONS. What does that mean? It means that the PRISON CORPORATIONS are making money. They are listed on the NYSE. What is their MANDATE? To make money. How do they make money? By people going to prison. How do people go to prison by laws being passed like California's "3 strikes you're out law", by Oregon's measure 11. Both these laws have increased the prison population by an explosive amount which is being paid for by the TAXPAYERS. Both these laws were backed by the CORRECTIONS UNIONS. Both these laws are applied UNEQUALLY to minorities. PRISONS ARE POLITICAL!

Not trying to cause a fight,but i have a loved one dying of cancer whos NEVER smoked a day in their life! You cant say that all who have cancer are smokers,Cancer isnt picky on whos it victims are,And as far as pot killing brain cells,,,,,How about the nasty air we breath? Id rather be around a pot smoker than a drunk anyday!!! and yes im a lil off topic,as far as kids being around someone selling pot..not a good thing,people getting into others business without being in their shoes,,,none of our business,atleast hes not robbing us to support his family like the pill poppers do,,not saying its a good thing either its just we dont know whats going on in his life to know why hes doing what hes doing,I dont agree with it,but my kids arent hungry and my bills are paid,until im struggling i cant say what id do if in this situation right or wrong

By the way if you were educated you would know that the government lied when they told us cannabis killed brain cells because tests have proved that the the cannabinoids active in cannabis have anti-cancerous properties. A test was also done in a California hosptial with cancer patients of the lung and the People who smoked just cannabis and no tobacco were the least likely to get cancer less likely than the people who didn't smoke either.

Let me paint you all a picture and you tell me what is right and what is not.
I lent my ex boyfriend a substantial amount of money to invest in an indoor marijuana nursery. I live in Cali so growing marijuana to a certain extent is legal, however, not every legal precaution was taken in growing this nursery. Mind you I only did this for profit to supplement my income to help pay off my expensive student loans. Clearly things went array or I wouldn't be witting this.
Now in my ex's eyes I am just and investor. I am not allowed to help grow it or clip it. So I never actually get to see what goes in and out. He simply lets me come to check on it once every couple of weeks to shut me up.
So of course we recently broke up, but prior to our break up he met a single mom who happened to live in our complex. Did I suspect him cheating on me? Yes, the witting was on the wall. Do I have hard proof? No. So I ended up moving out of MY own apartment because I was not in a position to afford the one bedroom on my own. So I sublet the place to him for 6 months before I actually figured out he was in relationship with the girl next door. I live in a small town and people talk and it took 5 months for this info to get to me.
Meanwhile the dirt bag has 3 kids and his new chick has a kid. His excuse to move out of my apartment sooner than the lease ended was to be closer to his children who live an hour or so away depending on the kid, since there are 2 mothers between the 3. All the while he refuses to admit to me that he is with the girl next door whom he also recently got engaged to. And simply tells me his personal life is none of my business. But he owes me money and where he lives I think is my business.
So he moved out of my apartment (and supposedly moved in with his brother an hour away) last week and I found a new subleter to move in a couple days later. In between that I went to clean the carpets myself and I noticed his truck still parked on my street. I called him out on living with the girl he practically jumped ship for and I got nothing but more lies and he still denies living with her and her son. Meanwhile my old apartment is on my way home from work and I see his truck parked on that street every day. Clearly he moved in with her an not his brother and lied to me about his current address.
On another note he did mention to me that his chick knew about the nursery as I instructed him months ago to never let anyone in on what we were doing, but she's his "significant other" as he put it, and has the right to know. I became infuriated when he told me this and felt betrayed and slighted. I was so angry at that I punched a hole through my bedroom door. So all this means his new fiance has NO IDEA that he even talks to me on a daily or that he owes me thousands of dollars.
Meanwhile I have gotten nothing but insulting pocket change back from him here and there. Bottom line is his with the amount of work he's been doing half his debt to me should have been paid by now. I don't know exactly where he lives and I'm not getting paid.
I want nothing more than to rat his ass out to the authorities. He took a lot from me and I have gotten nothing but, heartache, grief, and anxiety from all this. I feel ratting him out is the only justifiable thing to me, I'm not getting paid, why should he? Going to jail would cost him his partial custody with his youngest, since he has no custody of the first two and his new wifey can find out what a tool this guy really is before he ruins her life too. However, given the text messages between us does ratting him out put me at risk? I just don't know what to do. I could have his legs broken put that is not enough for me.
I know what I did was stupid, I know I got duped, and I should have never lent him money and I should have kicked his lying ass out of my apartment 6 months ago. So please spare me the ridicule and ostracism of my ignorant decisions and just tell me what is right.

Well since its Legal to grow there,Why dont you take him to court and get your money back? Nope im not gonna say mean things like you were duked or whatever,weve all been burned by our So Called friends.But,,,,friends are like family,they think they can do anything to you,without anything falling back on them,,and usually there right! not many of us want to end up in court,especially with our friends or family.My suggestion is either take them to court and get what you are owed,or simply let it go and write it up as a good life lesson! Any business that envolves money,have a written agreement,therefore he or noone else can refuse to let you see what n where your monies are going! If this was a lovers business deal even WORSE this leaves you Emotionaly and Finacially broken.So no matter who or what your next business adventure Be sure to have and signed Written Agreements on any business transactions and involvement you want concerning your money investments,,and word to wise DONT GO INTO BUSINESS WITH FAMILY LOVERS OR FRIENDS!!!! its sure to bite you in the ass every time,,believe me i know,been where you are!!!!Hope this helps

What is wrong with you!???? First off what are you doing around there to begin with? Buying some pot? You must be living in a time warp to the 50's! There is nothing wrong with this scenario if the kids are well mannered, healthy , and taken good care of! And again, why would you know, and be around these people if they are unfit indecent people? And out of all the information out there regarding this natural earth plant, you still carry such ignorance. This is actually beneficial in helpful to those kids to learn a skill which may even inspire them to study botany.Would you prefer Pharmaceuticals and shit? Look around, do you think all the stuff on the news is lying to you, are you delusional? Oh, i forgot sorry, you don't watch much tv and have completely secluded yourself from society. Wow! You really think something is wrong with this!!! I grew up learning the 'trade of tobacco as many did and still do, are they morally evil too? Tobacco is is part of the Nightshade family and is hallucinogenic before the curing process, oh sorry just saying ,,, I learned that and much more when I studied Botany in school and now have degree's. You are a problem, If you don't care to educate yourself a little better than that then you should climb back under your 'over taxed paying because of people like you' rock and leave others alone. There is nothing of any potential danger to them kids other than you destroying their home! How pathetic and maniacal you are. Read a book!
