(Daily Mail)   Marijuana farmer pro tip: Ask yourself if your growth operation is located in Colorado or Washington. If the answer is no to both, do not give "tours" of your crops on YouTube asking for donations   (dailymail.co.uk) divider line 42

Police found him because he announced his name and address in the video

That's a pretty dumbass thing to do no matter what state you live in.

But the plants, they're beautiful. Look at em, man. It's nature's bounty. How can you arrest me for that?

I, for one, am glad that this dangerous terminal cancer patient will now be severely punished for growing a harmless plant. Serves him right for getting cancer.

Um, perhaps, whatwith federal laws being behind, you should never disclose your location.

Actually, unless you're leaving a Yelp rating, you shouldn't openly disclose a location.

This might come as a shock to, but having cancer actually doesn't give you immunity from the repercussions associated with breaking the law. Crazy, right?

Hey, finally a Daily Fail story I know is true. Read about this in the paper this morning, as well as hearing it from my mother (a CT State Trooper), who was alternately railing about the stupidity of every decision this guy made and the stupidity and waste of money it is arresting people for pot.

That's the sad truth here. There are many more police officers than most people would think who would be very much in favor of full legalization. The problem is, though, it hasn't happened yet, and the cops can't pick and choose what laws to enforce. Their job is to enforce all of them, including the ones they disagree with. My mother, and most of her coworkers I've met, are constantly telling stories about how they laughingly let people go after pulling them over when the car just reeked of smoke, or come across people smoking pot outside of homes or stores and just told them to put it out and leave. A lot more officers are like that then people realize, but the only things anyone hears about are the stories that make the news: People getting busted for ridiculously small amounts and getting stupid amounts of legal trouble because of it, or the takedown of large, or really large, growing operations, which the cops can't exactly let slide.

I'm all for the legalization of marijuana. I'm all for the end to the moratorium on cannabis research. What I'm against is "medical marijuana" as a means of circumventing the law. It turns doctors into liars, and I'm not comfortable with that.

I just came into the thread to ask why the fark I would donate to a pot farmer, but while I am here: diaf and take your schtick with you.

I should have said "the good cops". You know, all of the ones who go to work every day, do their jobs well without being assholes, and go home at the end of their shift having not done anything newsworthy. In other words, all of the ones who never have news articles written about them and linked to Fark.

Even those guys choose who to give warnings to and who to arrest. If you have ever been let go or known anyone who's been let go, you have seen selective enforcement in action.

Yeah, rereading that, I worded that terribly and contradicted myself. Cops do selectively enforce laws, but the ones I was talking about choose, generally, to selectively enforce them in the direction of severity. Come across a couple guys smoking behind a package store and tell them "put that out and go home, you idiots", and then busting a guy who is dealing pot and cocaine by the pound out of his house. My point was though, there are a lot of cops who would welcome pot legalization, if only to rid themselves of the dilemma of what to do when they come across a 17-year old kid with one joint: "Do I ruin this kid's life and give him a police record that will dog him forever, or risk getting cited for not doing my job?"

I imagine there might be a couple, but my personal experiences with the police lead me to believe that many, many, many more officers will be upset that one of their easiest paths to conviction has disappeared, and one of the easiest ways to fake reasonable suspicion ("I smell marijuana") is now gone. Please note, my experiences have been almost uniformly terrible, so that might just be my bias talking.

I propose that every happy pill, powder and potion be made legal through dispensaries where you simply have to swipe your "casual user" card. If you're swiping to often you get to redeem your points on mandatory rehab.

And maybe hallucinogen spas. Some of those are best consumed in monitored sensory deprivation tanks or padded rooms. Although I hear positive things about blowing your mind in the desert.

Annual amnesty. That, and I was seeing some threads where the I was missing some 70% of the action. Is the "ignore posts and replies" option gone now? I probably missed it somewhere.

And then we can have food swipe cards and if you swipe too much, you get mandatory diet bootcamp. Sounds like a wonderful world to live in.

Ah, but play que bono. My plan would gain the backing of what's currently the private prison industry, but yours would compete with the various entrenched food lobbies. It's much easier to build a new corporate welfare system than to demolish old ones, which will spend up to the sum of thier welfare to retain it.

So the best indicator of whether I should support a dystopian nightmare policy is whether or not it's likely to be successfully implemented? How about we just make it legal to ingest any substance one wants to ingest, but one is legally liable for any and/or all crimes one commits while under the influence and responsible for all damage one causes? That's how it used to be, and we didn't have a drug problem. The only real "drug problem" in this country is that people want to do drugs and holier-than-thou authoritarian jackholes don't want them to.

Another pro-tip, regardless of where you are, a marijuana farm is a business, not a charity, no matter how happy you make your customers.  Businesses simply do not solicit donations.  Well, unless they are posing as a religion that is.

This might come as a shock to, but having cancer actually doesn't give you immunity from the repercussions associated with breaking the law. Crazy, right?


It might in some states if he had a medical marijuana card... but also, after 6 months of investigation, how is this guy still alive if he has terminal cancer?

As a cancer survivor myself, I know I would have been counting days if my tumor had metastasized (i.e. "gone terminal"), so the fact that this guy is still seemingly going strong after 6 months is a recovery that seems pretty amazing and noteworthy... or he doesn't have cancer at all.

Putting your pot garden on Youtube is one of the stupidest thing you could do.  Even if you're 100% fully legal in the state, they can kill all your plants in a search, or arbitrarily bring up federal charges.  It's double and triple stupid if you have coke or shroomies lying around.

csb: my neighbors decided they could come on my yard and do landscaping without so much as talking to us about it.  When I asked wtf? (politely, mind you), the guy got all righteous and claimed landscaping was therapy for his wife who was sick with cancer.  It went downhill from there.  Sad story, but it doesn't entitle you to break the law.

...at least 6 months before his arrest. I'm sure his lawyer will get his medical records if they are relevant. Given that he was also dealing coke, I would guess that this is a bit of BS.

Probably, but guessing is fine. Claiming to know based on what you would do, without having specific knowledge of the facts of the situation, isn't quite the same as guessing.
