    Why is the most useful plant known, a plant that has never killed anyone, illegal? It’s illegal because corporations that buy politicians fear competition from superior, safer and more environmentally friendly hemp products and because the Government loves to oppress jail and steal from the people! Alcohol, tobacco, petroleum, cotton, timber, chemical and pharmaceutical companies, just to name a few all see marijuana as unwanted competition. The laws prohibiting marijuana are NOT a result of any harm from marijuana. They are the result of lies, greed and racism. Read the well documented proof of that and a lot more marijuana TRUTH in these two articles: “MARIJUANA AND HEMP THE UNTOLD STORY, Thomas J. Bouril” and “WHY IS MARIJUANA ILLEGAL, Pete Guither”, click the links to those articles on this webpage: Internet Explorer web browser: http://jsknow.angelfire.com/home All Other Browsers: http://jsknow.angelfire.com/index.html

    Debbie,what makes you think that terry is wrong just because you know people who didn't move on to harder drugs?I know people who did,so what makes him wrong?Are the people that you grew up with the only people around?

    Law enforcement should be serving and protecting. These nonviolent petty drug busts are a great example of what is wrong with our country. Leave these people alone and go after the people that really hurt others. ie, child molesters, rapists, Thugs that intimidate, rob, and steal. God knows we have a bank robbery here every few days. America needs to change its laws and priorities.

    Terry: You are SO wrong. A lot of people I grew up with did marijuana when they were young adults or teens; but never did anything harder, and are now working, responsible adults, with families and careers. This is the reason they won't legalize marijuana, yet medically, it is worse for you to drink.

    Neighbor, this criminal is not as bad as they made it sound, nor as bad as they made it look!! He was not the actual "RENTER", he was just renting a room from the guy that was "renting" the house.... He did not damage anything! Try blaming that on someone else, Mr. Neighbor!

      Thank you, Neighbor. The $15,000 worth of damage was indeed a crime. Boatner was the only tenant living there because he was managing the plants for the renter. He stapled insulation to all the bedroom walls, re-wired the plumbing and electricity to water and feed the plants light and ruined the wood floors with soil. He and his girlfriend knew exactly what was happening. Everyone sticking up for him should imagine what they would say if that happened to their home. It was very very sad.

    Food Bank in California gives a Pot Cig to you for every 4 cans of food you bring in...but yet grow it yourself and go to jail.

    I've seen too many kids ruin their futures by falling in with the wrong crowds. Whether it's pot or alcohol, both are "dumbing down" American youth. Often, one is a gateway drug to the other. In many cases, each leads to the use of harder drugs. We need to protect our kids from making bad decisions that will forever impact them.

    Marijuana, simply put, destroys lives. It truly doesn't matter that people "think" it should be legalized. What matters is that it's illegal. Break the law, go to jail. It's an easy choice.

    This is disgraceful. Period. I think it is important to note that this criminal was renting the house. He was maintaining a drug house in a home that didn't even belong to him. He damaged property and he gave the neighborhood a bad reputation.
