    It is wasted time when there are plenty of crack/cocaine, heroine and pill dealers out there.

          Smile you may be on candid camera as we post! So what you are saying is that you don't want the little people off the street? Are you perhaps one of the little people? The fight against drugs starts somewhere. You're saying just not here? What a knucklehead!

    Don't know who you are that thinks Uriah has potential, but have you seen his record and pending charges? He has no job, no education and kids that he does not take care of and is still out selling weed and yes crack, yeah what potential!!! His potential is to be a drug dealer and go to prison. Way to go RIAH!!!

    I left it all behind me and don't even drink now. The thing that's really killing me is the cigarettes. I just can't quit. These six arrested, they'll go to jail and meet some real nice crack and meth suppliers. Then they'll be back in our neighborhoods, worse than before.

      That's Mr. Ex-doper to you sir. Do not even drink the booze anymore, by personal choice, not the governor's command. There is a great distinction as wide as the grand canyon between the marijuanna and hard drugs like coke, crack, meth, heroine, and now the latest craze in prescriptions. Thing we could get past your fears and government brain washing about mary jane and focus on the real stuff that is contributing so much to violent crime?

    Its A proven fact that alcohol is actually worse for you then pot is. Why not make it leagal and then the goverment would have something else to tax. With all that would be sold it could probably balance the national budget in a year. Yes some people might grow it themselves but people could grow tobacco if the want but they do not cause its more convenient to buy it. This country is all based around convenience anyways. Why else would a 20 ounce drink cost more then a 2-liter.

    The local special forces wannabes are at it again.Sure fill the jails with people because they smoke,grow,or sell a plant.I am so sick of them using our money to harass these folks.P-E-T-I-T-I-O-N LEGALIZE IT,STOP THIS TYRANNICAL BS!!!
