Every year I submit a five year plan for my garden, and if it doesn't pass the sniff test (lol) I self deport. Thank god for the mobile air SWAT team saving us from those awful smelling flowers.

Yes, I'm glad this hardened criminal is off the streets. We need more programs in the US spending hundreds of thousands of dollars of taxpayer's money going after these people.  Instead of training the police how to deal with confrontations.

Cost per plant to operate a helicopter and save him from the evil weed?
 
2021-08-27 12:23:20 PM  
He'll probably get more time that the Jan 6 cop killers.

Average US price for 1 pound of marijuana: $1500.00

Price per hour to operate Bell Ranger helicopter: $500.00 (Not counting pilot salary)

Sure but how many Beckies were saved by seizing those plants?
 
2021-08-27 12:27:21 PM  
Because a marijuana eradication squad is exactly what West Virginia needs to be pouring money into.
 
2021-08-27 12:28:40 PM  
Good thing they have all that meth to keep the pilots flying high and on the look out for that evil marijuana.
 
2021-08-27 12:29:09 PM  
I for one feel relieved that they spent more in jet-a than the plants were probably worth..

//wait, not 'relieved'. What's that other word?
//unsurprised.

maxandgrinch: Cost per plant to operate a helicopter and save him from the evil weed?


A few years ago the state troopers seized a huge McMansion near here because the owner had a few pot plants in amongst his tomatoes.

Evidently that bought a lot of Jet-A fuel, because every year a trooper helicopter spends about an hour slowly criss-crossing my property looking for pot.

It's the circle of life, War on Drugs style.

I love how these hicks are quick to demonize some lone hippy who keeps to himself and bothers no one. Yet fully support idiots who refuse to wear masks, get vaccines, and actually DO cause thousands of deaths.

Land of the free indeed.

No kief for you, Keefe...
 
2021-08-27 12:32:41 PM  
Hm. I was under the impression that opioids and meth were killing West Virginians.

Surely someone is tracking the effects, if any, on overdose deaths in states where marijuana is legal?
 
2021-08-27 12:32:56 PM  
I knew a guy who came home from work one day to find his NYC-born-and-raised wife frantically running around their rural MN hobby farm trying to call their three dogs back into the house.

"What's wrong?!" he said.

"The DNR just stopped by and said they needed permission to search the property for wild hemp!" she screamed back.

"Uh...honey..."

"HELP ME, GODDAMN IT! I DON'T WANT THE DOGS TO BE BITTEN BY THE HEMP!"
 
2021-08-27 12:36:04 PM  
And here I sit, under the oppressive thumb of Her Majesty the Queen of Canada, Elizabeth II, and I have two cannabis stores within a thirty second walk.
 
2021-08-27 12:38:08 PM  
Doesn't trust drug dealers.
Doesn't like pain pills.

No wonder they used every resource available to bust him. He's history's greatest monster in West Virginia. Why if he was taking his weight in pain pills every day he'd be free as a bird!
 
2021-08-27 12:38:27 PM  
All that illegal devil weed!

Ffs do better.
 
2021-08-27 12:38:31 PM  
So in the state that has the highest rate of opiate overdose and death in the country, which also has a huge meth problem that's likewise killing a shiatload of people, they go after... the harmless drug instead. Makes perfect sense.

He was growing it to avoid having to take opiates. In effect he contributed more to ending the opiate epidemic than they did. They couldn't have this uppity hippy showing them up.

This guy said that he "didn't like pain pills." This un-American anti-business traitor decided to destroy our way of life by growing plants. That monster!
 
2021-08-27 12:42:55 PM  
The police then issued him a prescription for Oxy and told him to get high like a real West Virginian.
 
2021-08-27 12:43:26 PM  
Just found out that I can cultivate eight plants for personal use. That's a lot of pot for a guy that hasn't smoked a joint in almost 40 years..

Nullify, nuff said.

However, following Moscow Mitch's Ag. bill - the one allowing cultivation of Hemp, the DEA went to immediately wetting its pants, i.e., placing an appeal for contractors that could provide "mobile" testing labs so DEA could 'road test' trucks loaded with 'hemp'? rushing over the interstates to markets near-and-far....

See, the DEA NEVER tested the D9THC percentage when the yearly "eradications" rolled around every year.  Bastids were, 99% of the time, simply chopping down stands of wild hemp and calling it marijuana (biggest U.S. eradication took place 9/89 at Franklin Wildlife Area, on Franklin Island "500,000 plants bulldozed and burnt!!!" - locals never touched the stuff - beautiful 15 ft. tall plants possessing wonderful qualities for clothing, etc., but headaches for anyone stupid enough to dry and smoke - minimal THC).

Elected/appointed officials and LEO's need to keep a careful eye on their properties now that hemp (not to mention those quasi-legal grow your own States) is protected under Federal Statute.  Birds love 'Marijuana' seeds, thereby "broadcasting" seeds all over the place by pooping unprocessed material.  Stuff can be coming up all over (plant a straight line of "hemp" on back 40 of officials and then turn them in on the 1-800-bad-weed line during harvest season - only 'jail birds' broadcast 'straight rows')...

/where everyone mutinies, no one deserts...
//attractive, non-toxic, annual, reseeding, ornamental (that is all)

We could bankrupt the war on drugs...
We all put a high pressure halogen bulb in our attic.  Keep the MJ Cops scrambling around everywhere, & each "bust" is a highly publicized bupkiss.

I like the idea of Johnny Appleseeding the entire country, so that we are tripping over these weeds everywhere we look.
 
2021-08-27 2:43:12 PM  
Surely it went something like this:

the acab just waited till he had harvested the other 500 plants before they busted him for those 16.  the acab will raid the trim house for 10 kilo of trim that hadn't been turned into concentrate yet, right after 100 pounds of bud and concentrate has shipped to the acab informer who will turn over all but 1 pound to the acab

the phama companies were mad someone was getting high and not paying them.  Maybe he should grow opium poppies.

We decriminalized it and if you spend $200 you can get a medical card and buy it for $60 power half gram cart at one of 4 dispensaries in the state. Or you can go up to DC and get whatever for more reasonable prices. And you can grow 4 plants at home, it's just not legal to buy or sell the seeds. Based on the hippies I know in WV who just get high every time they ski or bike right at the trail head (or do anything) I thought they were in a similar circumstance.

The US still has insanely backwards drug laws, including those for cannabis. It's still considered as bad as fentanyl federally. Anyway, enjoy your freedoms™ while I toil in serfdom under the rigid rule of the British crown.

Meh, not trying to get into a dick swinging contest but the federal fight is all but over. I expect Biden to finish it off by the time he's done. My employer has taken it off the list of substances they test for. No state that legalized will assist in any operations. Congratulations to Canada for being "officially federal" first. I've been friends with Mary Jane for decades, openly for several years.
