    How many jobs did the DEA just destroy?

  2. Bubblehead Les Says:

    And yet, not one penny in Taxes were collected on the Crop.

    That is a lot of weed. Something tells me weed prices will be going up suddenly in davidson county..

    And friends question why I carry when I hike.

    On a related note, more Tennessee production directly reduces the violence on the border with Mexico. I say, save lives and put Tennessee tobacco farms back in production. Let Marlboro and Camel sell a 10 pack of “Easy Smokes” or “Chills” for 20 bucks. You gut the cartels and reduce street level crime at the same time.

    If you find yourself on the same side of this issue as the criminals and the politicians then you might want to rethink.

    Jim, you may be mistaken in assuming that “locally grown” means “locally owned.”

    Last year there was a major marijuana crop found in Virginia. One suspect was arrested, and the said suspect was an illegal. Another item of importance was that the suspect had links to cartels south of the border.

    So, in summary. Not saying that you are wrong, but cartels do come here to grow. The marijuana farm might not be as much competition to the cartels as one would assume.

    We had a good cotton crop that we are presently harvesting, but nothing like $400,000,000.

    Several decades ago the count sheriff’s department on the outskirts of Memphis had a relatively small Marijuana patch directly behind the station so they could train the officers how to identify it. No doubt you will guess that as the product neared maturity, the night before it was to be destroyed, someone harvested it instead.
    Them Tennessee boys know weed!

  8. Cargosquid Says:

    Them cartels ain’t seen nothing till they have to compete with Big Tobacco!

    They’ll be out of business as soon as the companies get involved.

    DEA? pppphhhh! R. J. Reynolds will kill them.

  9. SteveA Says:

    Sorry that articles a joke. No way you are getting $1200 worth of pot from each plant.

  10. Jerry Says:

    I think the ‘ting about MJ is, that the enforcement side of the local constabulatory can’t measure it. They can read your ‘blood/alcohol’ but not the THC level. Just a thought, YMMV.

  11. TIM Says:

    Wow that outta put a dent in the mexicans wallet.What amazes me is these big operations like the report says are in very remote areas yet when it comes time to harvest somehow these people get all that stuff out of there unoticed.And atleast around here they hardly ever arrest anyone its like they buzz the damn place 2 or 3 times with helicopter first then about a hour later DEA guys on foot show up.

  12. Seerak Says:

    #5 Gladorn: if they were *legal*, the competitive advantage would be tremendous. Who in their right mind would buy from dangerous criminal thugs what could safely be obtained legally? (so long as you aren’t stupid enough to tax it enough to make the illegal stuff profitable; ask the Canadians about that one.)

    If I were a drug cartel head, funding anti-drug groups in the US as a means of eliminating legal competition (not unlike licensing laws, that) would be near the top of my funding priorities.

  13. Standard Mischief Says:

    434 million divided by 362000 = $1198.90 per plant.

    Yet again the police outright lie and the reporters just lap that shit up.

  14. Bryan S. Says:

    Unless we are talking BIG plants here…

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
