Dude... it's so cheap here. A joint is like $2 and in some cases cheaper. At this point it's like robbing a gas station for $25.74 and a mars bar. So not worth.

Good morning Oregon.  Something is seriously wrong when cops in helicopters are your first line of defense in trying to keep weed out of the hands of middle schoolers.

The suspects are 14 and 15 years old and consequently not legally able to buy weed at stores.  And since they were using cars to commit their crimes, I would assume that they were stealing the stuff in quantity, and this for the purpose of reselling it--likely to their classmates and to friends in their neighborhoods.

You prefer a good old fashioned high-speed car chase?

How about some preaching by example on the part of parents, teachers, and other influential adults?  Just a thought, mind you.

I suppose you would have been happier if these kids had killed someone in a traffic accident ("another marijuana-related death" for your collection) instead of wasting precious law enforcement resources to prevent further harm (not that the police were doing anything else at the time). Nevertheless, the cops-in-helicopters plan worked, and now you're dealing with that success in your own special way.

No, I would not have been, but you're absolutely correct when you write that they could have.  Nice sidestepping of my point, btw.

Not permitting weed stores (with their thousands of dollars' worth of easily moved and easily resold merchandise on site at all hours) to begin with would have worked too, and it might have done so at a considerable savings of tax money.

Here's a case of a juvenile committing armed robbery at the mere sight of thousands of dollars' worth of easily moved and resold (and as yet unrecovered) merchandise. The followup article (possibly paywalled but easily verified) goes on to state that despite its legalized status, this commodity has become a popular target of thieves due to a thriving black market. Perhaps we should criminalize it and not waste tax money investigating any associated crime.

Yes.  It was that     [s]omething is seriously wrong when cops in helicopters are [Oregon's] first line of defense in trying to keep weed out of the hands of middle schoolers.

Put a little more bluntly (no pun intended), if eighth and ninth graders are plotting how to break into weed stores so they can go into business supplying their age-mates with the garbage that those stores retail, maybe it's time to shut down the damn weed stores.

common sense is an oxymoron:   Here's a case of a juvenile committing armed robbery at the mere sight of thousands of dollars' worth of easily moved and resold (and as yet unrecovered) merchandise.

Did I just see you compare a live dog to dead plant material?  Really?  Cannabis plants can't bark the last time I checked, which makes them, I would say, far easier to conceal than dogs are.  That stolen dog also needs to be fed until it's resold, so that the thief or his/her receiver has a carrying charge in the meantime.  In addition, that dog can't fit into a jacket pocket, but a saleable amount of weed can.

Come on now.  You can do better than that.

And if they're stealing valuable dogs at gunpoint in broad daylight, maybe it's time to shut down the damn dog breeders.

Whether the dogs in this case barked or not, or whether they can fit into a jacket pocket or need to be fed, they were indisputably easy enough to conceal that they were successfully stolen and presumably fenced, since they have yet to be recovered nearly two weeks later.

I know this is the best you can do, but they only hand out trophies for irrelevance in college football.

Don't think it'll happen.  At any rate, dog breeders don't sell rubbish that most of its consumers ingest in order to eph themselves up in the head.

common sense is an oxymoron:

They almost certainly barked, they can't fit into a jacket pocket, and they do need to be fed.  Which makes them different from weed in all three respects.  And there have been other cases where stolen dogs of that breed were recovered, so that they may well be somewhat less easy to conceal and dispose of than you would have me believe:

No, but they do sell a commodity that is so enticing to thieves that juveniles are committing armed robbery in broad daylight in order to procure it. Unless you're prepared to argue that robbing dog owners at gunpoint in broad daylight is *less criminal* than breaking into unoccupied cannabis dispensaries in the middle of the night, your argument is, as usual, invalid.

tirob: common sense is an oxymoron: Whether the dogs in this case barked or not, or whether they can fit into a jacket pocket or need to be fed,

They almost certainly barked, they can't fit into a jacket pocket, and they do need to be fed.  Which makes them different from weed in all three respects.


And they still got stolen at gunpoint in broad daylight and have yet to be recovered. Which makes those precious differences of yours irrelevant. Again.

tirob: And there have been other cases where stolen dogs of that breed were recovered, so that they may well be somewhat less easy to conceal and dispose of than you would have me believe:

So where are the dogs from TFA, or any of the other French bulldogs sold on what you can't deny is a thriving black market?

There have also been many cases where cannabis has been recovered. And if possession of French bulldogs was illegal, how many of those recovered dogs would have been returned to their former humans?

tirob: Looks to me like you put your foot in it again.


Your observation is noted and given the lack of consideration it deserves.

My argument went to the unlikelihood that we're ever going to make laws that put dog breeders out of business.  You failed to address it of course.

common sense is an oxymoron: And they still got stolen at gunpoint in broad daylight and have yet to be recovered.


Those dogs could still be recovered.  In fact, they could be recovered a year from now.  That sort of thing is far less likely to happen with stolen weed.

common sense is an oxymoron:

Happens once in a blue moon.

common sense is an oxymoron: And if possession of French bulldogs was illegal,


But it isn't, and as a practical matter it isn't ever going to be.  The fact remains that we're talking about two completely different commodities here, and you know it--but you won't admit it.
