Kentucky man to be featured on "America's Most Wanted"

A Kentucky man will be featured on this weekend's edition of "America's Most Wanted." U.S. Marshals say John Robert Boone has cultivated thousands of pounds of marijuana and distributed it nationwide. He's described as one of the top players in the notorious "Cornbread Mafia". Boone is from Marion County, but now a nationwide manhunt is underway. Local legend has bill him as a hero with popular t-shirts. He's known as the "King of Pot" and the "Godfather of Grass," but authorities say he's really a violent, dangerous fugitive.

    ok, I dont smoke pot, or do drugs. But honestly, how is weed different the alcohol? and alcoohol is legal, jsut cant drink and drive. They both make you not right. And yes some may say, well one day weed wont be enough for you well the same with beer, one day it wont be enough you will start drinking whiskey and such. and I know people who smoke weed on a daily basis but yet they still have a GREAT full time job and everything. So if pot is illegal shouldnt alcohol be too? and like I said I dont do drugs, but I never really understood that.

    For the people that say marijuana is a safe drug need to look again. Driving while high is dangerous, reaction times are slower, so accident rates are higher. I smoked while in my 20's and stopped because it increased my anxiety and the next day I would become depressed. So to those who say it doesn't cause harm may want to dig a little deeper. I think it's great for those who need it medically, but legalizing it would be a dangerous decision.

    I do not smoke pot, but however I do believe it's a waste of time when we have so many methheads and crack dealers out robbing and killing people. You always hear of pot busts and never hear of them going after the hardcore problem causing people. They never catch them until they blow up a house or something cooking it! These are the people we need to get off the streets! Pot may be illegal but at least those people are sitting on the couch munching on chips instead of our robbing and murdering people.. PLEASE do something about the meth, heroin, crack, coke, pills etc!

    AMW is doing a great job of informing us about the dangerous folks that constantly create an unhealthy atmosphere. The same people complaining about legalizing drugs are the main ones causing all the problems and the main ones that complain when they are effected. please continue to update the list of criminals, sex offenders, drug dealers and anyone trying to destroy our youth.

    We all need to ban together and write your state rep and US rep and tell them if they dont put up a bill that will legalize pot then they will not get elected next term. Its the only way to get those fat cats attention.

    WOW apparently AMW is bored with life. i mean seriously..i doubt this dude is violent. pot doesn't make you violent. and all of you bashing it, i suppose you think it's fine that cigarettes and alcohol are completely legal and kill thousands, wait, millions a year! that sounds good! harsh chemically produced, addictive, expensive, and enhanced products that cause you to be violent and may even cause you do drive and kill someone. pot has never killed anyone... od on pot? not happening. od on aspirin...even that can happen. and for DUH: it's simple. tax the stuff just as cigarettes are, and if you want to grow it, you will have to obtain and uphold a permit. if yuo get caught growing w/o a permit, you will be fined, and then face jail time. imagine the free cells we'd have in our jails, using up way LESS of our hard earned tax dollars if they'd stop going after tokers, and start going after rx pill abusers and alcoholics! wow, the nat'l debt would disappear. and to James: you are iggy.
