    I sure would like to know how much time and money will be spent
    on this "major bust", over a God given herb, which has never
    taken a life of anyone who has used it? Our lawmakers are a "joke", and those who enforce these unconstitutional laws are
    puppets, who violate their oath to uphold the Constitution!

    Why not just give someone a posession charge.I mean dang you know they had to pick it up from someplace! Why all the trumped up charges?I guess it makes it appear better when the state gets ready to make him pay taxes on his Illegal POT.

    What a waste of an arrest. Now we have another person going to jail on a minor minor offense. Lets spend money on arresting some hard core drug salesmans.

    It kills me how they spend all this $$$ trying to catch someone and then they give them a small bond...
