I am sure all Antigonians know about the drug busts recently that included a former principal and area teachers, for possessing and some dealing marijuana, and I'm sure a good number also know about the recent change of an ordinance that allows small amounts of marijuana without criminal penalties, but has anyone really considered what might be going on here?
Most, if not all, of the former teachers had been charged with simple possession of THC, which isn't a big deal in anyone's eyes I don't think, so they have received plea deals with no jail, just probation and fines. The princpal /coach hasn't made a plea deal yet and is scheduled for a jury trial in January. We heard from Sheriff Greening that these small busts were just the tip of the iceberg.
Recently, the local ordinance was changed regarding possession of marijuana, so it is no longer a criminal offense if in small amounts and for first and second time offenders. I have to wonder if this change was implemented due to the current situations going on and in the works?
How big is this thing and is it being put off due to the changes taking place with legalization and such? Antigo was always SO anti-pot that I have a really hard time believing that there wasn't an underlying reason why that ordinance was passed and the speed in which it was done!
The coverups that have gone on here are just unfathomable and with the power of media now, there is no reason that it should continue. People need to speak up, and bring heat on those who have gotten away with this illegal activity for SO SO long!
