  • You can bet they were tipped off about this vehicle. I passed the exact location not long before this bust and there were two dps officers searching a different white suv... Just saying

  • You're talking to the blind pilot. Everyone knows what the real killer is between alcohol and pot. I know its been said before, but how many violent offenses have occurred under the influence of alcohol compared to being high? How many people do you know that have died from alcohol related causes compared to pot related causes? From what I understand, the 'cartels' in the 20s suffered when prohibition was lifted. Any freethinking person would know this all about the almighty dollar. That is why alcohol is still legal and pot is not, both generate a lot of income on opposite sides of the law.
    Understand that I am not one of these sign holding 'legalize it' people. But I question laws that tell me I can legally poison myself to death but not inhale.

  • PILOT, you say if you make it legal to grow there will be no more cartels,weapons or busts on 59.........So if you make it legal to grow here, then the cartels have local farmers that will have to pay for protection to grow, so now we won't have drug busts on 59 we'll have weapons bust, but these weapons will be used on US soil against US citizens.......

  • " improper use of a turn indicator and driving on the shoulder"
    Sounds like laws so the HP can stop you if they can't think of anything else!
    These were the types of laws that were used in the South to harrass the African-Americans pre-Civil Rights Era. How about:
    Mopery with intent to creep
    Carrying a concealed lunch
    Transporting potted meat across a state line without a permit.

  • Pilot...do you get the feeling that, if the laws were being written today, pot would be legal and possession/consumption of Southern Comfort would be a felony?

  • I agree with you completely Pilot.

  • Pilot. The real shame here is that you close a blind eye to the violence that Mexican cartels have produced not only in Mexico but also here in the United States. They are able to produce this violence because of the illegal proceeds that come from the sale of this naturally occurring plant as well as other drugs. That money is used to purchase all sorts of weapons and pay off officials to look the other way. Maybe you should research all of the facts rather than post on this site out of ignorance.

  • You hit the nail right on the head GOP_Love Child. Money is at the base of all of this.
