Members of District 2's Violent Crimes Squad found 110 pounds of marijuana

A mere dozen words concisely describe the major flaw in our judicial priorities.

Possession of anything != violent crime

Possession of anything != violent crime

How about possession of a hooker's head?

Rye_: How about possession of a hooker's head?

er, do you have one that you're looking to... get rid of? 'Cause I know this guy.

The crime would be killing the hooker though, not possessing her head. But you're still a sick fark if you have one.
2005-03-29 09:55:42 AM  
thank you government for saving me from that horrible drug.

2005-03-29 10:00:28 AM  
This guy should be punished to the full extent of the law. Careless cultivation is causing undue hardships due to increased weed costs since the supply is lower than demand.

BigTuna: But you're still a sick fark if you have one.

Heh - nope, but that might be a case for the members of District 2's Violent Crimes Squad.

Why can't we ever get a call to a barn full of weed on fire? It's always the same out here...meth meth meth. Just once I'd like to run on a drug related fire call with happy people.
2005-03-29 10:25:56 AM  
I've always envied the officers who get to stand around while large plants are being burned. You know they love that. Deep down inside, they're like "yeah, this rules. You got any more tacos?"
2005-03-29 10:30:43 AM  
How depressing.
2005-03-29 12:40:41 PM  
We don't need no water, let that mofo BURN!
2005-03-29 12:43:49 PM  
Maybe we need more high cops..might cut down on brutality.
2005-03-29 12:45:24 PM  
Officers said the larger plants were heavy enough that it took two officers to carry them.


Hope mine grows 2b that big. Started from the only seed found in a big bag of major-hydro I purchased last Christmas

I think they added that line to make me cry.

I like the way you think. Do you have a pamphlet or some other literature with more of your ideas?

El Farko:

I used to know a dude who was a cop before he came to his senses (he's a fireman now). He told me about doing drug raids, hacking down huge piles of marijuana plants, throwing them in piles, setting them on fire, and standing as close as he could, taking big deep breaths. One of the perks of the job, I guess.
2005-03-29 12:48:58 PM  
Sad. Very Sad.

What a tragedy...for fellow Ohio Farkers.

BTW growing weed isn't a violent crime, if so Amsterdam would be in a crime wave.

I enjoyed getting baked and trying to walk in those wooden shoes, when I was there.

Article: some plants described as the size of Christmas trees.

Wow. Words elude me. Just wow.

"some plants described as the size of Christmas trees."

O tannenbaum, o tannenbaum, wie ihre freundlichen knospen klebrig sind...
2005-03-29 12:54:22 PM  
Violent Crimes Unit??? Called to Marijuana bust??? Is there a LESS violent crime than ILLEGAL HORTICULTURE???

Of course, this is Cincinnati, where the police department has a "Racial Profiling" division, so I guess I shouldn't be surprised.
2005-03-29 12:54:53 PM  
Let's all bow our heads and say a little prayer.

Our Father who art a righteous dude
we totally dig your name.
Thy kingdom come thy will be bong
on earth as there is in heaven
Give us this day our daily toke
forgive us our owed pizza money as
we forgive those who owe us from the last Dominoes call
and led us not to bogart but to pass it on
for you are the coolest dude ever. Amen

As we mourn the passing of our giant ganja trees let us remember that they will live on in the cuttings that were passed on to Cousin Bubba and though it will be dry for awhile, soon a resurrected crop will be mature.

Bah just like that plant explosion made gas prices go up,this will do the same :(

Possession of anything != violent crime

I'm with you in theory, BigTuna, but think about it... that large of an operation is eventually either going to be busted or lead to a violent crime. An illegal enterprise involving large sums of cash isn't exactly a bunch of stoners getting high and minding their own business. If these guys didn't have a weapons cache, someone with one would be by to visit them soon enough. I think the idea behind hacing the violent crimes unit involved in busts this large is that they might come across something that will help them with other cases.

Which, when you think about it, is another reason to legalize it. 99% of the negative aspects of weed stem from the fact it's illegal, including it being a gateway drug, at least as far as I'm concerned. Lie to your kids about how dangerous weed is, and they aren't going to believe you when you tell them how bad heroin is.
2005-03-29 01:03:58 PM  

that was cool...I think I'm gonna PS that to one of those wallet prayer cards.

Members of District 2's Violent Crimes Squad

I'd like to know why this was neccessary.
2005-03-29 01:04:23 PM  
rules for growing pot:

1 - Dont tell anyone.
2 - do not allow fire hazards. (be careful)
3 - Dont tell anyone.
4 - dont do it on your own property
5 - dont tell anyone
6 - dont tell anyone
7 - dont tell anyone
8 - dont tell anyone
9 - dont tell anyone
10 - do not tell anyone.

did I mention to not tell anyone about your grow?

"Officers said the larger plants were heavy enough that it took two officers to carry them."

Well they wouldn't be so heavy if you smoked some of it down.
2005-03-29 01:05:30 PM  

Another "criminal" put behind bars. Way to go judicial system. I think trying marijuana at the age of 18 should be mandatory. Once everyone realizes that it's harmless (compared to alcohol, heroin, meth, etc.), we can just forget about these stupid laws and let people get high.

The man that invents a breathalyzer sort of thing for detecting THC will not only become a billion billionaire, he'll be a hero to humanity. The problem with weed is with enforcement as much as society's ridiculous stigmas against it.
2005-03-29 01:05:42 PM  

I think it's potential size is not the thing you should be worried about. You should be hoping its a female, seeing as you only had 1 seed. Oh, and you can worry about all the people you've told, too.

As for the article, I am wondering what this guy was thinking as he was trying to flush some of his stash:

"Ah, I won't get in near as much trouble if I flush this QP as I would otherwise, even though they just busted my 200lb+ growing operation across the street." Dork. Hide it somewhere sneaky so that you still have some when you get out of jail. Somewhere like, say the grass clippings bag of your lawnmower...
2005-03-29 01:06:07 PM  
My Father-in-law once scattered a two gallon bucket of ditchweed seeds onto the creek bed covered with poison oak, He's immune. Kicker was the creek was highly visible and a part of a protected wetland so the cops had to pull up the crop by hand because they couldn't burn it or spray it. He still giggles thinking about it.

Cops round here can't be bothered with that crap. Nebraska was used as a major cultivation area for hemp to make rope for the WWII war effort and it's everywhere. Most kids 'round here know not to smoke it and that it will only give you a headache.
2005-03-29 01:06:32 PM  
I love how the "Legalize It" threads always seem to die-out rather if everyone in the thread can't get off the couch to comment.

Nonsense, I've seen some of these threads go on for hours. Maybe we're all too disgusted to speak at what is going to happen to this guy for this "crime."
2005-03-29 01:11:55 PM  
"In his house, they found some marijuana in the toilet they say he apparently tried to flush."

Flush 110 lbs. of tree-sized pot?! Another good reason it's called "dope".
2005-03-29 01:12:17 PM  

Give it some time the potheads are just getting out of bed.


You're welcome to it just came to me today. I always thought there should be a funeral service when so much of what has made so many happy burns in a untidy pile instead of properly packed into a bowl.
2005-03-29 01:15:26 PM  
I just thought of something kinda creepy...the violent crimes department on a drug bust...what's next? SWAT teams doing traffic stops?
2005-03-29 01:18:28 PM  
i wonder how many schoolbooks 110 pounds would buy....

there is a medical marijuana patient here in NorCal who keeps being harassed by the feds. last time, his plants were so big they had to cut them down with chainsaws; no charges were filed. (it seems the local sheriffs found his garden while "chasing a suspect")

what if all that money went to schools instead of "terrorists"? how much would be saved on prison costs?

"without laws, there would be no lawyers.
and without lawyers, well, it just goes on and on from there."
2005-03-29 01:20:54 PM  
guess you couldn't really peg an illegal search and seizure on this one either...........
2005-03-29 01:21:08 PM  
Hey wait....I've been up since 8am... And I slept IN today....

/sleeps WITH his bowl full
//still shows up for work EVERY day
2005-03-29 01:21:54 PM  
Is is just me, or did anyone else picture the guy frantically trying to flush a christmas tree-sized plant down his toilet?

Oh, I just saw Diogenes' entry - I guess I'm not the only one. Great image, though.

I grew up in a small town in southern Ontario where one of the larger families was the Reesor family. A bunch of them were busted for growing pot between rows of corn in one of the biggest busts in Ontario history. Now everyone calls them the Reefer family.

"I could've smoked that pot... And worn that hair"
2005-03-29 01:28:02 PM  
This thread reminded me that I've been awake for almost an hour and yet still haven't smoked a bowl. I don't know whats wrong with me. Maybe I'm getting sick.

/lights up
//much better
2005-03-29 01:29:12 PM  
there's a few things I can find wrong with this case...where's the proof that the guy they busted actually ran the grow-op? Just because he lives across the street it's his? (the article doesn't say) Unless they checked for the owner of the vacant house and his name came up they've got nothing.

for all they know he bought the pound off of the person running the grow-op. The coke's a different story though.
2005-03-29 01:29:50 PM  
You might be a stoner and not a pothead. There's a slight difference they both smoke about the same but, the former holds down a day job and the later works part time in either food service, custodial arts or telemarketing.
