I like my coffee like I like my pot:  dank and sticky.

Kirby isn't surprised he was fired for whistle-blowing but felt he had more than enough grounds.

So he was stealing company property?

"By him doing that inside the building he put every employee at risk. He put our families at risk," Kirby said

No, the war on drugs is what put you and your family at risk.  You're not safe from it anywhere.
 
2013-07-19 12:31:45 PM
Yes, it's very impressive.
 
2013-07-19 12:34:56 PM
What a pussy. Even as draconian as the gubmint is on this shiat, they wouldn't be prosecuting all the employees unless they had some evidence that they were involved in the operation.

Some people just need slapped.

And you know working at a coffee shop when you have a family.

The way he was speaking about the grow operation would lead me to believe that he knew how to grow.  Maybe he asked for a raise and was denied.  I would of just took buds every once in a while so they didn't notice.

You're probably right but I wouldn't put money on it.  Ever hear of an over zealous DA going full retard?

BTW subby, nice play on words.  You had me looking for a different angle.

"There's just some things you don't do. He put other people in jeopardy. He put my family in jeopardy," Kirby said. "If I had been arrested for something, I didn't know was going on, what's going to happen to my wife and my daughter and my family?"

Oh please. Nobody in your family knew but you, Shiatbrick. Your boss was a moron for having it on the premises, but it's not like you're going to catch Teh Ghey or Teh Cancer from a closet full of weed. The only "jeopardy" is that you're out of a job as your boss is, so I'll cut you slack on that. That is unless, you rise to the challenge and take it over from him. Also, since your kid and wife weren't around, I'm betting absolutely nothing will happen to them in court. But there you are, crying like a biatch.

I wonder if the owner drug tested his employees.

He did put them at risk of a SWAT team home invasion where their dogs are killed and children are scarred for life. Sad state of affairs that happens for growing a harmless plant but that is the way it is...

And it just goes to show that the war on drugs is having the desired effect. That worker was scared rhetorical by the experience.

Hiding a grow op in a coffee place is actually pretty clever.  Smell of roasting coffee nicely covers up the skunky smell.  Nobody is suspicious of vents on the roof or fans or excessive moisture.  Neighbours are used to people coming and going at all hours.  Roasters and brewers and espresso machines cover up the hydro usage.

Of course now that he's been caught he's going to have to go with Plan B -- growing in houses that have been tented for fumigation by Vamanos Pest.

Not for nothing, but if I was the kind of redneck loser piece-of-shiat who worked grinding coffee while I had a family, I would thank my boss every day for putting a roof over my head, not harassing him for growing a few plants. Yeah, he "came across the hidden room while shutting down lights". Oh, you mean, you were snooping around your boss's property looking for shiat that was none of your business, maybe even looking for something to steal?

farking rednecks.

It's not clever at all. Because that's never been tried in the last 60 years or so? You can smell that "skunk" though anything. The only thing that will really make that odor dissipate is owning the airspace over your grow operation.

Nope. Eventually the cops will bust the joint and they will (rightfully) arrest everyone on the premises. Do you really want to be on the wrong end of a drug raid? And arrested? And then of course the cops are going to ask you if you knew about it and you are either going to have to tell the truth and become some kind of accessory and lie and risk perjuring yourself.

I'm all for the legalization of pot but there is no farking way I would subject myself to those risks while pot is illegal. Anyone who says otherwise should put down the bong and think about what it could mean for them.

Yeah, this notion that all the employee has to do if there is a raid is say, "I don't know anything about it", and the cops are going to shrug their shoulders and let him go is idiotic. He'll be arrested, he'll be charged, he'll be plastered all over the news, he'll have to hire a lawyer, he'll have to make court appearances, etc.

Yes, he'll eventually be cleared in the eyes of the law, but it won't be the slightest bit pleasent for him getting to that point.

More often than not, the whistle blower was protecting his ass.  Had his boss got busted the DA would be out to prosecute anyone working there and their only defense would be that they didn't know what was going on, he ain't gonna accept anyone claiming that they knew pot was being grown there and they weren't involved in any way.

LOL, ok son, whatever you say. You can't open the papers these days without hearing about the fascist cops arresting everyone at a company because of the owner's personal grow-op. In this case, the employee has the option to terminate their employment and mind their own business. What we have here is a case of yet another minimum wage worker resenting the success of his boss and deciding to be vindictive. Regardless, I suggest you stop watching so many movies and learn actual facts about things that law enforcement does and does not do and how prosecution does and does not operate.

We just had a grow op open shop in this garage next to a local park. I was walking my dog and saw them unloading all the water tanks and new lighting, shaking my head.

I realize we lightened restrictions in this state but they were being a bit too obvious and they are literally next door to a park. Hell they even let this skeevy hot-dog vendor set up shop in their driveway.

I also find it funny how the soccer mom's have a fit because you walk your dog daily where their precious snowflakes play once a week, but are completely ok with all the drug traffic next to the playground.

Actually I would of asked him for an 1/8 a week assuming it was high quality.  I don't steal.  Being a rat is the lowest form of life.  If he wanted to be a dick, he should of just taken it and sold it.

I noticed the well informed and certain way he described the separate parts of the setup also...

And since when did 6 plants make $50,000? You mean you could grow 60 plants in a house and then buy the house outright? Why where they doing it in a warehouse instead of a custom fitted house then?

Also, isn`t there something in law where the police need some form of evidence that you yourself have committed a crime?

Proof, that`s it!

It has to be proven beyond reasonable doubt. Otherwise they have to let you go. Even if you murder someone.
