Worst drug stakeout ever 

Some of our finest drug warriors followed a tractor trailer carrying 1,700 pounds of marijuana and decided to watch it be delivered. That's when the herb disappeared.

According to law enforcement officials with knowledge of the delivery, officials watched the tractor trailer travel to its intended destination. Soon after, several vehicles pulled up, left and then came back. They stayed several hours and then left. When officials later checked the tractor trailer, the drugs were gone.
In the coming austerity, the ridiculous war against this plant should be one of the first things to go.

Oh man. I grew up in Louisville.

I know a lot of people who are going to be happy!

1700 x 16 = 27,200 ounces

27,200 x 28 = 761,600 grams

761,600 x $20 = $15,232,000

Trickle-down economics at its finest, lol

Legalizing marijuana would be a great political trade by the "New Right" as a way to seize the center. Tax it and sell it like tobacco -- it's not like teenage use would go up -- it might even go down.

I had a longer rant on The War Against Drugs, but I'll save it to another day.

After 10 years of experimentation (long ago) and 20 years of pondering the question, I am ready to commit. I agree with Th on this. It's not great either way.
