    That is a great use of state resources.

    National Guard helicopters, multiple vehicles and officers to cut down and confiscate ten marijuana plants.

    I live in Washington State, when I see articles like this I just shake my head. The state of Washington is making millions in tax revenue of marijuana, others are still fighting it.

    And thats about what its worth.

    The fiscal situation in this country especially at the local level with sky rocketing property tax rates could be eased with legalization of pot and its proceeds going to pay school.police,and fire costs. It would also kick start housing and produce JOBS!!

    I'm not on the "let's legalise all drugs" bandwagon, but I do believe that one should be able to grow marijuana for their own personal use.

    The Feds need to pull their heads out and decriminalize the stuff. Period.
    Keeps them in control. Special interests (big pharm) stuffing politicians pockets to keep the population hooked on their opiate/oxy/heroin shit - a terrible scourge across our nation, destroying so many lives. Our Federal Gov't, big pharm, and politicians are the dirtiest dope dealers around.

    Feds still classify marijuana as a Schedule 1 substance, the same as heroin, so preventing banks from accepting cash from the marijuana industry, so these legit businesses have to basically launder their money. A broken system, criminalizing the industry, mountains of cash lying around, making these businesses easy targets for criminals. These Federal marijuana laws must change.

    The DEA recently reaffirmed its decades-old policy of classifying marijuana among the most dangerous drugs, citing its "high potential for abuse" and "no currently accepted medical use." That position has faced increasing criticism from federal and state lawmakers, physicians, researchers and even some law enforcement groups.

    Medical marijuana is extremely popular with voters: A June Quinnipiac University poll found that 89 percent supported the use of marijuana with a doctor's recommendation. A separate survey by the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America found that 68 percent of responding members supported legalizing medical marijuana in their state, and 75 percent said that the Department of Veterans Affairs should allow medical marijuana as a treatment option.

    A DEA position paper from 2013 states that "smoked marijuana has not withstood the rigors of science — it is not medicine, and it is not safe."


    Those statements from the DEA are absolutely FALSE.

    Refer-madness fear-mongering sonsobitches.



    I have a friend who grows a lot of pot. He gave me a little sprout in the spring.

    Oh, look. She's getting close.



    Anyway, law enforcement oughta have no right whatsoever raiding those nice people's crops.

    Margaret Holcomb said she was growing the plant as medicine, a way to ease arthritis and glaucoma and help her sleep at night. Tucked away in a raspberry patch and separated by a fence from any neighbors, the plant was nearly ready for harvest when a military-style helicopter and police descended on Sept. 21.


    You go and get her, CRIME FIGHTERS! Thank you for protecting us all from granny's little garden!

    Haha, what a bunch of stupid pussies.
