In reply to: Authorities raid marijuana grow house in Athens »

November 21, 2012

This is the kind of raid that gives the police a big stiffy. Busting pot growers is like shooting fish in the barrel, the VAST majority aren't armed or violent. Try and say that about a meth lab or crack house.

Now talk about crazy, the police have a monetary interest in busting folks like this because the get to LEGALLY STEAL ALL OF YOUR PROCESSIONS AND ASSETS. House-gone. Car-gone. Anything of value goes to fund the police. Not to mention a potential felony rap and jail time which will make you, for all intents and purposes, unemployable. Let's not even get in to i getting raped or murdered while in prison. All for 20 plants that half- the-country considers medicine and 2 states outright legalized.

Does this seem excessive to anyone else? Will the punishment fit the crime?
I hope this person get's a jury familiar with Nullification.

    No cartoons on racism

    As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number of demonstrations -- some peaceful, but many not at all peaceful, with tear gas fired by police officers and gunshots fired by some protester. read more
