Humboldt County medical marijuana

Eureka police officers somehow got a search warrant for a home near C Street and Harris Street the other day and found 50 pounds of "high quality" marijuana inside during the raid.

According to the article, three people were home when the cops busted in, and those people didn't cause any problems for the officers who found the weed, scales, and a handgun during their search.

Although they did have $150,000 worth of pot, none of the residents were arrested or charged with any crimes yet, evidently because the DA's office wouldn't allow it without reviewing the details. We are in Humboldt County, after all, and the DA doesn't have time to be clogging the court system up with harmless pot growers. Sure, someone at the house with 50 pounds of bud drying owned a gun, but it was legally registered to him, which definitely indicates he is a somewhat-legitimate law-abiding citizen. If it was criminal activity, the gun would have been stolen for sure, and the residents would not have been so calm and cooperative when the coppers showed up.

So anyway, the cops managed to get a warrant to raid this pot house on the west side of Harris Street (that's where the projects are), but it turned out to be harmless pot growers and they didn't even make any arrests. Once again, EPD, it seems like you could be doing other things to better our community, like maybe busting some real criminals, you know, burglars and rapists and the like. All you have accomplished with this pot bust is taking $150,000 out of the local economy and causing a giant setback for those poor Eureka growers.

*sigh* When will we learn that pot isn't crime here?

please legalize

Ok if marijuana is so bad than how can the most dangerous drug be legal (alcohol) I mean how can you say that it is safer for someone to leave the bar and drive home drunk. Or would you rather someone set at a friends and smoke a joint and then drive. Now honestly say to your self I would rather that person drive home drunk, or that person who got a little high and drove. Alcohol kills people twice as fast as marijuana. Please help America legalize Marijuana

Weed is harmless, it doesn't make you go out and kill people, the government is retarded, legalize and i'll be happy.

zero. pros outweigh the cons, and any wise government would put this really useful plant to good work. making fabric, food, smoking, medication, vitamins, fuels, and various other useful things. this plant grows fast, and it is good for soil. its absolutely stupid that it isnt legal. it would really pull the economy up

weed would be the cure for our nation. smoking a little pot calms you down, makes you hungry, takes the stress away. if you ask me all people should smoke it... especialy the ones with sticks in there ass. Smoke as much as you can. you will never regret it.

i'm 18 and i love to smoke, the government is blantly living a lie in front of our face and sadly theres nothing we can do unless the strict parents that grew up around herb and most likely smoked it vote for it! and look at all the cool people who smoked lots of bud back then jimi Hendrix cheech&chong the who Santana anyone famous from then smoked and you don't see them doing coke now killing random people of there family so hmm how bad is it really we have living proof from that time that its okay so why don't we look at them...?

OR. bud is the best:)

Marijuana drug or delight

By Tim Loftus, on Oct 26, 2009 - 22:22
Marijuana has been around for years hemp was a main cash crop in this country for over 150 years and then some drunk politicians thought it would be cool if they made acohol legal again as long as they had something to replace time for change obama and if you as ready as you say you are give us the one thing that will make the largest change MARIJUANA......its been used since biblical days and if the lord didnt want us with it he wouldnt of made it himself. thanx keep smokin america

You know, I agree with much of what these comments say... But please learn to form a sentence. You folks that sit here and type like 10-year-olds and spit out cliche bullshit make us look worse. When someone who is trying to decide for themselves whether or not pot is bad and they see "YA DUDE POTS GUD, I SMOKE DANKZ ALL DAY AND CANT EVeNZ SPEKZ MY OWNZ LANGUAGE" they just see ignorance, and pair that up with those smoking pot. One of the biggest problems with our fight to legalize are ignorant punks that make the rest of us look bad. Don't type unless you can form a coherent thought, please. Obviously this doesn't apply to everyone below, but more than I would like for sure.

By Brithael, on Dec 20, 2009 - 23:34
Dont worry There are stupid people out there supporting just about everything.
Also if you are under 20 you really dont need to smoke pot or drink or anything because your brain is still growing. If you DO get into pot in school you just may distract yourself so badly that you end up typing like the losers the previous poster was talking about.

There is no question that the majority of your comments are absolutely true. I think cannabis is excellent medicine, and an intellectual, social, artistic pastime. It's also great that these days users can consume cannabis without detrimental effects on their lungs (using tinctures, edibles, vaporizers, etc.). HOWEVER, it's a true shame that almost NO ONE on here knows how to sound even remotely intelligent when they write. You guys need to go back to school--or at least read something other than facebook comments--if you want cannabis proponents to be convincing to the naysayers. Come guys sound like morons.

legalize weed

By Max, on Nov 5, 2010 - 15:40
they should legalize weed because there is research of it helping with like certain diseases. How could it be bad if it helps like serously. Some of the diseases that it help with are cancer for one, there have been cases where it can help Lou Gehrigs Disease. So just legalize it


By Taylor, on Mar 18, 2011 - 21:37

Guys, I'm not a smoker. I stumbled on this by accident. Now I don't care whether people smoke or not, but I do care that people who do smoke come across as incredibly uneducated when they write their comments. Some of you above have pointed this out already and I do want to reinforce it. The best argument I can think of for not legalizing the stuff is to print this sh*t out and use it as an example of what dope does to people's brains.
