Why is Marijuana not legal? Itís a natural plant that grows in the dirt. You know whatís not natural? 80 year old dudes with hardons! Thatís not natural but we got pills for that. Were dedicating all our medical resources to keeping old guys erect. And putting people in jail for smoking something that grows in the dirt.

Jmtc, Duck, I think you were drawing the wrong inference from this news story. That is, People (sellers) who have made the choice to engage in criminal acts are likely to make more bad choices & try to make the most of the opportunity while they have the chance. First, they were probably selling some of the smoke to folks who had faked or no prescriptions as well as their legal customers. Then, since they're already breaking the law doing "that", might as well go the next step. Where there is a market/demand, someone will try to fill that need and profit from it.
As RK alluded to, because pot is illegal in most cases, it's users are "in the community" with users of other illegal substances.
"Hey man, you know where to score some crystal/blow?"
"Nah, but maybe the guy I get weed from knows where ...."
and vice versa.
But selling meth & coke out of a place that's already going to be on a high profile police watch list? .
"Hey man, are you stoned or just stupid?" In this case I think it was the latter.
"It's not that government is inherently stupid, although that's a debatable question."

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated, but those who torment us for our own good will torment us to no end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."

Sorry if I don't abide by your net-iquette!
But apparently you and duck have a reading disability. Let me say this again: You're far too entertaining to keep on ignore. And secondly, I merely stated I personally don't touch that stuff, and frankly, I don't give a rat's behind if you, or anyone else does or doesn't. If you think I lay awake at night wondering what RK's vices are, you're in for a big disappointment!
Think what you want, but please, stop putting your words into my posts.
And I have not called any names or insults here, so please don't run to Chris and tell on me! he's got bigger fish to fry.
And Duck, cheese puffs are far worse for you than a herbal smoke. If you get the munchies, I would suggest broccoli and cauli bites.
