Scary, scary, scary DRUUUUUGS!

FTA: Police talked to the home's resident, who said the plants were not hers but belonged to someone who didn't live there anymore. When asked why she still tended to the plants, she reportedly told police she "waters all her plants."

Thank god this godless, law-breaking criminal scum has been taken off the streets. I feel so much safer. Don't you?

/I'm shocked they didn't arrest the person who recognized the plants to begin with.

From the comments.

"Thank God we ended this evil and diabolical criminal enterprise before it came to fruition. It looks like our heroes swooped in to her lair in the nick of time to foil this dastardly child of Satan before she could (gulp) get high or something. I'm going hug my kids just a little tighter tonight knowing that next time we may not be able to stop the next madman with a green thumb and a spritzer bottle. What then, I ask you, what then?"

I totally believe the homeowner. What possible motive could she have for lying to the police?

Not all stoners are happy go lucky friendly people who smoke responsibly safely in the comfort of their living room. Let's not forget the one's driving under the influence, and carrying guns to protect their shady cash transactions. Good for the daycare owners for letting the police sort out what kind of stoner was growing next door to them.

RockofAges: You're a fearmongering retard. I hope you never influence public policy in any way, shape, or form in your entire life, and that you never disseminate your opinions to an impressionable mind.


My, what a pleasure to see such a thoughtful and coherent response. In point of fact however, I am not a fearmongering retard. I'm a somewhat past middle aged man who has had some experience with pot myself, who has seen first hand the damage that recreational drugs has done to friends, family and neighbors. I've seen some stoners who handle it responsibly, and also seen the ones who are brutal criminals to support their habits. Maybe when you get out of high school and see a bit more of the world, you'll realize that it's wrong to demonize everyone who doesn't share your narrow minded opinions. But.. I have little hope in your case.

Thanks for the poorly thought out comparison. Might I suggest a logic 101 course? The reality of the situation is that weed is currently criminal. Like it or not. If you want to discuss utopian theory, your stoner buddies will be happy to oblige you.

Yeah, but the issue is not whether pot is a "good thing" - the issue is whether it is in society's interest to engage in prohibition of all things that are not deemed "good things". The argument that society needs to protect adults from all "bad things" is especially peculiar in that it often emanates from those who profess to believe in "small government" and "low taxes". You can't have a small, cheap government that child-proofs the whole world.
But I certainly don't think your being wrong about this makes you a "demon".
Perhaps you could lighten up, Francis.

$25,000 bail? Really? Stupid tag applies to this as well. I'm sure the homeowner is a real flight risk. Should have been more like $500, if that.

Yes, anyone who thinks it's ridiculous to arrest someone and set their bond at 25k for three plants must be a stoner. That's the only explanation. And anyone who points out that you're somewhat of a moron must also be a stoner. I picture you as a grumpy old man, blaming junk mail and the electronics in you car you can't understand on stoners. Ker Thwap must be the sound the few thoughts bouncing around in your noggin make. I will celebrate this hollow victory with waffles and bacon.

Very clever. You come into this thread, make a provocative post, and then ignore all the serious responses - instead, cherry-picking one moron who called you names, and speaking as if he represented everyone in the thread, for a finale, you beat a passive-agressive retreat.
It's a little early in the morning for this sort of attention-whoring, don't you think?

Oh, hey guys.
While you were debating on whether plants should be allowed to grow, elsewhere in the world there were murders, rapes, robberies, home invasions, hostage crises, politicians stealing our money, rapes, some guy walking naked through central park, shady wars over increasing energy demands, riots about cartoons, and the planet generally falling apart around us.

...But please don't let that distract you from the drug war which has cost thousands of lives this year alone while destroyed millions of citizens reputations and bilking the government for billions of dollars over a bunch of common weeds.
Now get back to throwing that old lady in the slammer for watering plants, cuz you damn well know she deserves it.

crab66: Drug laws in this country are farking insane.


Yes, they are. On the other hand:

FTFA: "Officers were called to the 1800 block of Bay Street shortly before 6 p.m. Tuesday. The owner of the day care reported seeing the plants from the business, and officers could, too. They got a search warrant and confiscated the plants, noting there were no postings stating the plants were medical marijuana."

Apparently, if she'd had a medical card, they would have said no harm no foul?

Agreed.

But aside from that stupidity, can we safely assume that the children were forever scarred by the proximity? I think so.


Oh god yes, those poor little ones. The sight of plants growing is worse for them by far than seeing some guy fark a dead dog on the front lawn.

This denotes a state where it is LEGAL to grow under certain circumstances. Lazy for not educating themselves on how to work within the established rules? Yes.
Stupid for growing in a state where it's supposedly legal? Not so much.

As someone who tends to switch handles pretty often yet has been hanging around this site since the day it became more than squirrel balls, must agree that account age alone is not a very good indicator of anything at all.

I took Ker_Thwap's post to be entirely serious and his replies did not seem any less sincere. I don't think he's a troll, personally. The problem is that it is almost impossible to tell someone who sincerely clings to wrong-headed notions and is willing to profess and defend them aloud from someone simply trying to incite anger in sensible people for fun because the end result is often the same.

For the record "it's illegal, duh" brings nothing to the conversation. It is also incorrect at this point in time, because what we are discussing is only situationally illegal. This indicates that there is in fact a debate about the sensibility of prohibition in general and as noted in the article, the cops looked for a posting claiming the grow to be medicinal which in many cases would have exempted the grower from prosecution entirely. It's never actually a valid argument when debating the efficacy or validity of a given law but in the instance in particular it is no more than the functional equivalent of "la la la I can't hear you".

Which brings us back to how people get labelled as trolls...

Sorry, but if you are implying pot has turned some of your friends and family into 'brutal criminals', you're full of it. I know a legion of smokers, and the worst of the side effects is turning somone into a forgetful, lazy, cheeto munching TV junkie. Those people aren't a risk to anyone but themselves and their cardiovascular systems.

Shut up, pencil-neck. The prime indication that someone has no clue of the implications of public policy on the actual public is that said one is a young academic.

People who grow pot in public view, particularly without permits, are creating an attractive nuisance, and should be arrested just for being retarded. Weed doesn't hurt anyone, but weed dealers attract dope jackers, who most certainly do.
