    LEO's are doing the bidding of the politicians put in place, LEOS are used as a means to generate revenue for said politicians retirement pensions among other things. so it's not the LEO's fault per say for enforcing rules made by politicians.

    Yet by the rules made by the politicians there, this business was operating legally.

    Sounds like this is nothing but government-sanctioned extortion and harassment.

    The mafia is alive and well in this country. They just switched from nice Italian suits to cheap blue uniforms.

    Yes, we know the Crips' official color is blue, but what's the relevance?

    Here in Oregon, Cannibis provides relief from seizures.

    Wow, what a cash grab by the police. Say what you want about cannabis use, but it sounds like these guys are pretty legit. What's missing from that story is probable cause to affect a search and seizure which makes the whole thing skunky (pun intended). An astute reader will also note that they did not mention finding any weapons or violations. The real war we should all be waging against is stupidity and injustice.

    Police and government agencies did the exact same thing right before the Colorado and Oregon votes.

    It's their way of saying ...you know what.

    Yep. They are trying to keep the funds for the drug war rolling in. If weed is legal, then no more funds to eradicate it. Which as we all know has worked so well.

    Indeed. With some notable exceptions (I'm looking at you meth).

    she uses Charlotte's web you can get it locally but it costs less to buy larger and higher percentage on line. cwbotanicals.com I make gummies for her and add a drop of thc oil to each gummy. it costs less then what we can find locally and seems to work better. this is only.5 thc so it is legal anywhere.

    Now I understand why he was so quick to sign legislation before going on vacation. Estimates vary widely, but with iffy coverage of somewhere in the neighborhood of 6 million asset forfeitures, the state would have cash to spare.
