If only the story was about meth. heroin, salts, pills, etc. You would get the communities undying support. But alas it's just another Cannabis story. The cops look like the a$$holes for wasting time and resources on a plant that harms nobody just to make headlines. Stop going for easy federal grant dollars and do some work cowards!
