Credit the Highway Patrol officer for picking mile 420. The driver didn't have a lot of choice.

Montana - one of the few states that actually has a MM(J)420.

funny how the police are so proud of enforcing laws that waste tax payer money they do press release pictures of it, talk about being out of touch.

The last miler marker on I-90 in Montana is 556.

So you prefer the police to enforce the laws that you do like?

They probably could allocate their limited resources in a better way than using their time to do press release pictures arranging and then posing in front of a bunch of harmless plant material. But hey, that's just like my opinion man...

Look at how happy this dog is! This is the happiest drug-sniffing pooch I have ever seen. Possibly because he's been huffing 115 lbs of weed.

So many people stole the 420 mile marker in Colorado that they now have this:

Yeah, if you're carrying 150lbs, you probably aren't working for a laid back stoner just trying to cop a mellow

We're not talking about a few ounces here. When you start looking at this much pot, there's a good chance it leads back to cartels. I'm all for legalisation but fark the cartels.

Legalization would fark the cartels. Just another reason to dig the idea.

FTFA: 102 vacuum-packed bundles weighing 115 pounds. So, these were 102 bags, each with 0.5 kg of pot vacuum packed. Yeah, this sounds rather professional.

You have too many 'cartels" in your anxiety closet.
Please exercise "cartel" control in the future.

That "much" is for Tuesday, an hour in the morning.

Legalization? Yes. Decriminalization, though, would line their pockets.

yeah "you" might be working for a caregiver in a medical cannabis state, i get the argument that the laws the law although you hear plenty of stories of police departments both refusing to enforce gun laws and also lobbying to keep cannabis illegal so really the laws not the law but I get the argument but to then spike the football with press release pictures is where I totally think they are out of touch, that was my point from the beginning.

Decriminalize and you increase demand but only criminals are going to supply in significant quantity. Sure, some people will keep a couple plants on hand but you want to have a little party with a few friends on a Saturday night? You're buying from someone the cops would bust in a criminalized environment.

Legalize it and you get rid of the cartels all together.

All they need do is keep it taxed if not grown yourself for personal use.
The differential between Black Market and Retail Storefront will ensure cop job security as a nice supply of domestic "Potshiners"(TM) will appear.

I'd still steal it.

Was the driver swerving or did the driver fail to signal?

Since it is a four-door plain jane sedan, I am working under the impression that the cops wanted to make the news and went for an 'ironic' headline.

Except it doesn't.   Look at yesterdays ileagal iron ore thread.  As the cartels loose the drug trade they move on to other activities.

They are businesses. Thats what businesses do.

And I wonder if the police officer got one of those NSA "tips" to be at place X looking for car Y. Oh ya I suspected they had drugs in the car because...... It doesn't say they swerved or any of that. Just that the officer suspected they were carrying drugs which means that he invented the traffic violation as a pretext to the stop.

Do you really believe the NSA is going to reveal their capabilities for a petty MJ bust?

You are making things much too complicated. All that has to happen is one of the lower level guys putting it in smaller bags has to turn.

I can't imagine the NSA trusting local cops over people selling weed.

I couldn't agree with you more.  Mile markers (and don't get me started on the 1/10th Mile Markers around here) are the biggest wastes of money I have seen.  Who the hell needs a mile marker in rush hour traffic near a major metropolitan area?  The sign companies love them though.

I just don't see the BFD over personal stash.
