    What the news didn't tell you was that most of the kids at this bust were only busted because they were there. They weren't high and didn't have possession of anything! They were only there to visit their friend and hadn't been there 5 minutes when the cops showed up. The media also didn't tell you that the REASON they took everyone to jail is because it is more publicity for law enforcement. I know this because I heard the officers arguing over who's name got to be first in the papter and who got credit for the bust. I know the kids involved and they are good kids! Just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. The REAL news should be who DIDN'T get arrested... like the Teacher's kids, or principal's kids, or the bankers' kids or the businessman's kids who all do pills and coke and never get caught or if they DO get caught, nothing is EVER put in the paper or on the local news. Ever think about that?

    I am proud of our law enforcement. Narcs...good job.To all you that think this was "petty". 90% of the people strung out on meth and pills all start out smoking POT.If you are mad or upset because you smoke the stuff...GO TO REHAB.These cops are fine people I know each one and have the utmost respect for them.I myself have scrips for pain meds but I do not abuse them. Thats a choice. So leave the Doctors alone. They are just trying to help their patients.It is not their faults that people are addicted to drugs...It is their choice.To the family remark to let them out. They committed a crime and if the person making the comment to let them out was living in the house...They should be locked up as well. Then fined and made to work as restitution for their acts. They should not be kept in jail for free housing but made to work in the community to pay their debt for their actions!!!

    If Dolly Parton stuffed some pot down her bra and the police arrested her, would that be considered a huge marijuana bust? LOL!

    Do you know the only reason pot is ilegal? Because fellow named Hurst thought he was going to loose a fortune. Because 1 acre of pot will produce more paper fiber then 4 acres of trees.Read your history.Now they send people to jail for it.those that are agianist it don't have any idea what they are talking about. Its harmless and non addictive.
