Seriously? Does the fact that it's still ILLEGAL in Pennsylvania escape you people??? Meth dealers and child pornographers are trying to make a buck too, would you like law enforcement to turn a blind eye to them as well? The "little fish" turn into the "bigger fish to fry" & cost a whole lot more to prosecute so that excuse doesn't fly (no pun intended, not that anyone will get it anyway).

We should ban marijuana so nobody will have it....Oh wait, another FAIL by the feds.

I don't think anyone will ever be happy with the work that police do. If they do nothing I see complaints on here and then if they do their job people still complain. Maybe they should let everyone run wild on drugs and then how many complaints you all come up with. And yes, he was making money, but guess what, so do...by going to work everyday and then I come home at night and take care of my family. I'm not growing massive amounts of marijuana in my house with my children. Officers...keep up the great work!

THE ONCE COMPLAINING ON HERE ARE PROBABLY USING IT THEMSELVES.

Better than you said...

9:59... the "ONCE" complaining about it? Have another bong hit man... maybe you meant the ONES?

I would like to know how much this cost in overtime for the officers. That is where a big cost will be let alone the cost of incarcerating someone for marijuana. In parts of the state where educated people live he would have walked on ROR bail. Not good use of the taxpayers funds Mr.DA

Seriously, people are getting a wedgie because he was growing a herb, weed etc in a area where children are. Houseplants are more poisonous then pot. It is time for it to be legal. You'd see your war on drugs decline. Alcohol is more damaging. I don't smoke anything. A few on you on here ought to do some research on pot before commenting. Maybe the people who have little bars in their homes should be arrested cause kids live there. So tired of the law telling us what we can & can not do for our own safety.

here we go again...........pot is not a drug.it is used for various medical conditions, it is not like alchol, that can kill ya, some prescription pills can kill ya. i have not heard of any body dying smoking pot. once they seize all these plants they either burn it, get highor put out in there to be sold think about it.
