    I think the war of marijuana and statement made by the state police ” keeping drugs off the street we are keeping it form the kids “is I personally would reather see those so called kids getting high on pot rather then in coffins for inhalers the fact that marijuana is safest known herb only makes this bust more reason to legalize .. what waste of money and time Taking few pounds form the state which are not on streets but sold in the many houses of users This does nothing to make end its an endless flow so this cop did nothing and too bad those busted did not fight but I say wish the war would come too that as most cops violate bill of rights and constitutional protection and this will only continue the on quest with other police who will compete as it is a game of war on culture of people not kids that is some kind of approval statement I say hell with this legalize
