PallMall: iron_city_ap: A football field sized crop of weed is worth $10 million !?

You're obviously not familiar with CopMath™

Here's a quick lesson:

1. Latrell gets caught with one (1) ounce of dirt weed. You take the actual value ($50) and multiply that by 100. So, $50*100 = $5,000. Then, you double that amount because Latrell is a dirty, sub-human negro.. who probably robs and kills people all day. So, $5,000*2 = $10,000. This ensures a long prison sentence for Latrell, and you (the cop) get an award for taking both a filthy criminal and dangerous addictive narcotics off of the street.

2. Shane gets pulled over for his license plate light being out (in broad daylight). He's driving a Hyundai, so he can't be rich, but when you (the cop) smell something, you decide to search Shane's car and find $10,000 in cash. You plant a 2mg Xanax (School Bus/Totem Pole/Whatever the kids call them these days) on his floorboard so you have probable cause to arrest him. Because he is now in custody, you immediately divide the cash by two. So, $10,000/2 = $5,000 (hint: you take the $5k for yourself). When the backup cruiser arrives, you subtract 80% of the remaining $5k to cover your co-workers (other cops). So, $5,000-80% = $1,000. Because the cash was initially found in a Ziploc™ bag, you slap a distribution charge on Shane as well (that will show him). You then get an award for getting a drug peddling criminal and dangerous drug money off of the street. As a bonus, you get to impound his Hyundai, which will be auctioned off to bring in more revenue for your brothers in blue.

Pelvic Splanchnic Ganglion: santadog: 10 Million... for 1500 plants.

Well, to be fair, they DID say "up to 10 million". So, pretty much any dollar amount under that is still accurate.

Also, this is 2012. Can we please stop using the football field as a unit of measurement? It's embarrassing.


A metric fan, eh? I'm guessing you must prefer hectares for these measurements...

Perhaps posting the conversion rate will make it easier for people to shift away from using football fields:

1 football field = 0.535 hectares

1 hectare = 1.86915887850467 football fields

You don't know many pot smokers do you?

I know plenty. They're called poor high school and college students.

The pot smokers I know are successful and employed in careers with 6 figure incomes.

Rickenbacker: Putting aside all the "legalize it" talk...I've never understood the "cut it down NOW" approach. Wouldn't it have made more sense to put the field under surveillance, and catch the grower(s)? Seems that would work better than cutting it all down, and hoping for snitches to provide tips.


Someone just missed this month's "don't report my grow-op" payment. That's all. If you send him to jail you will never get next month's money.

Yes, why would we want to use a measurement that pretty much every American can immediately visualize? We should switch to giving area estimates in hectares immediately!

bhcompy: Pretty common here out west. If there's public or private land that can hide something with natural geography or a tree line buildup or something else you can bet that someone is going to try to grow marijuana in it. Of course, you get people like the ones in this thread that talk about how marijuana didn't kill anyone and prohibition is bad, but I'm not sure they understand that when it's legal and commercialized the Mexican Mafia is still going to want theirs, still can provide the best price(like beer snobs, pot snobs make up a small percentage of the pot smoking population), and will still kill people over marijuana.


I know really, its like what we have now with those horrible budwieser vs coors turf wars, when will they stop the violence!

I never understood why this didn't happen more often. I mean you don't smoke the seeds right? If you plant the seeds in random unused spots some will make it. Hell, if you only get 10% to full maturity it was 10% that took very little effort to produce and you don't have to pay for. If you are not paying for your pot then you are not supporting criminal enterprise. Hell, growing for your own consumption might just be one of the easiest ways to combat the funding of dangerous criminal organizations that currently are responsible for the danger associated with the pot trade.

The funny thing is in Europe they would probably also say two football fields to describe the size also instead of using hectares also.

The problem is that the culture of law enforcement is that officers of the law, prosecutors and our so-called "leaders" take any transgression of their precious "rules" personally, and that this are an insult that requires vengeance.

Rather than setting up a system to treat the root cause of problems and to REDUCE HARM, the system is set up to (1) satisfy these rule makers that revenge has been dealt to the perpetrator (the more out-of-proportion the better!) and (2) to perpetuate the situation by preventing treatment of root causes.

Since most people who vote are not critical thinkers, they are perfectly ok with this cave-man attitude. Even though it costs everyone in the long run and is totally inhumane. So we are stuck with it.
