Good god, man! What a story!

A 14-pound pot deal went south Monday night when two heavily armed men first stole the ganja at gunpoint, then raced away in a Jeep while shooting at coppers in pursuit with an AK-47!

This is a big deal, even for Humboldt County! We all know we live in a modern wild west, a place where lawlessness abounds and law enforcement is frowned upon, but damn, how often do a couple of guys strap on body armor and rob pot dealers with assault rifles, then shoot at the police before committing suicide and driving off a 130-foot embankment? It's straight out of a bad action movie!

Anyway, one of the robbers didn't really want to die, so he shot himself in the chin (while his partner in crime put a bullet in the side of his own head), and now he's at the Redding hospital awaiting charges. Oops!

On the lighter side, it's good to hear that the sellers in this deal played it safe and simply turned over the pounds of marijuana to their attackers. And why wouldn't they? Fourteen pounds of herb isn't really that much around here.

Just look at the most recent grow op raid in McKinleyville. This couple had 900 plants in three grow rooms, some pounds of weed, and even a good quantity of hash just lying around the house. What's interesting about that one is that they are being held on $20,000 bail, but the cops found $15k in cash in their residence. You'd think the bail would be a little higher considering growers of this caliber generally have five or six figures buried in their backyards.

Anyway, don't sell weed to people you don't know. And don't freaking grow 900 plants in your house! That's just greedy! Get your card, grow your own smoke, and stay within the law--Humboldt County will be a better place if all you growers just quit with the rampant greed.

I missed your acerbic commentary on the grow scene here in Humboldt. The story is incredible enough to bring Lazarus back from the dead. I hope you stay back --though I hope we don't have too many more stories like this one.

Funny, growing a few plants for yourself is well what it is. But, when you begin an illegal business- yes- it is illegal in the United States- you are eventually going to get caught and facts is the greed of money is what motivates. Greed. They'll kill for it, lie, and fail to respect the law for money. What for? If you grow a few plants for yourselves that's one thing, but making a business an drawing in the slime is what annoys the rest of us. It's just not cool.

Doesn't anybody think its kinda odd that the deal went down "at the corner of School and Anderson" instead of in a house? Counting tons of cash and inspecting 14 lbs isn't a side of the road thing. What were the growers thinking?!
