The police should stop wasting its time and our money destroying these money-making crops. Marijuana is less dangerous than alcohol, so it should be legal for all adults to consume and distribute, just like alcohol.

The numbers are WAAAY inflated, too.

They chop and weigh the whole plant. . .wet!!! Then they multiply that weight by the street price at the dime bag level (or whatever it is these days).

The actual herb is less than 5% of the raw plant weight when trimmed and cured.

(don't ask me how I know these things. . .LOL)

There have been cases where they measured the POT the pot was planted in.

Cops for all the time they waste on the subject know seriously nothing about drugs.

Captainigor is correct. The dollar values various government agencies assign to the value of the pot they harvest are totally bogus.

Stop this silliness. Legalize it, tax it and let's all move on...

What a waste of tax payers money. Air lifting marijuana to burn it at a different location. It is legal to steal in this country if you are a bank, corporation, or work on Wall Street. You can even get a bailout of tax payers money, if you steal enough. It is illegal to grow and smoke a plant which is an herb, not a drug. I am so sick and tired of the war on marijuana. We have corrupt clowns running this country and we are stuck in the middle with no voice. If the government were really on the side of we the people, they would legalize hemp and marijuana to revitalize our industrial and agricultural economies.

These Appalachia growers should knock on Geithner's door for a bailout. "We're too big to fail, Tim! Help us out!!"

What's ironic is that plenty of Americans would gladly pay them to come take the pot away and agree to dispose of absolutely all of it with fire for them.

All that time, manpower and money wasted on a victimless "crime" and none on the real problem of illegal aliens who are the real criminals, sapping welfare, schools and health care.
So think about this, 30% of elementary school kids are illegal aliens and then think how much your property taxes would go down if they weren't here. So legalize pot and arrest the real criminals

30% eh? What an interesting, pie in the sky, grabbed out of the air number.

How about this... legalize pot, leave the kids alone, and go after some REAL criminals commiting REAL CRIMES!

Another bit of proof how Marijuana would be good for our economy. Less money spent on the ridiculous drug war, putting people to work on pot farms, increased tax revenues.

Granted people that build prisons would be out of a job and the companies that run prisons might have to lay people off.
