Valdosta, Georgia - April 22, 2011

South Georgia deputies make an undercover drug bust seizing more than $30,000 worth of dope.

At about 3 p.m. Thursday, deputies intercepted a package containing 25 pounds of marijuana at 7 Lorene Lane in Nashville, says Berrien County Sheriff Anthony Heath.

Officers arrested Abigail Morales, Fernando Perez and Natasha Rodriguez, who are all from Tifton.

Investigators received a tip about the parcel from Fairfield, California. Then, sent a deputy dressed as a mailman to deliver the package.

"I'm a citizen and we have to take back our streets, you know, and our neighborhoods from these drug dealers," says Tommy Clark, of Nashville. "And they need to get 'em off the streets."

Morales, Perez and Rodriguez face charges of trafficking marijuana.

They're behind bars at the Berrien County jail.

    These drugs should be returned to the Florida Department of Correctional officers for distribution within our prison system. Even though one of our guys was arrested last week we still have many more who can finish his work. Georgia GIVE US BACK OUR DRUGS.

    Pot should be legalized and taxed just like alcohol. Pot has no worse affect than the juice. My father died at 52 from from his liver exploding due to alcohol abuse. As a former pot smoker the weed is not as harmful as the juice. Why spend billions of dollars (tax dollars) for law enforcement and prisons when this money is wasted. Tax it and there will not be drug dealers selling it. Then we can concentrate on harmful drug dealers that traffic drugs like herion, and illegal prescription drugs.

        I believe all the arrested pilots the last few years were drunks, not pot smokers. Anyway legal or not many millions smoke it and have for a hundred years here.

        That's akin to saying that forks cause obesity. Responsible adults wouldn't consider getting high before performing their job. Most use cannabis to relax. Prohibition only works for the corrections industry,the Bail Bond folks, Testing firms,etc. You are implying that cannabis is a harmful drug. It's just a plant.THC,CBDs and hundreds of other compounds have different uses. What exactly is your problem with cannabis that escapes you for alcohol's social effects. It has been shown to reduce tumor size in some studies out of Israel and Netherlands. The AMA,The LaGuardia Commission,and the Shaefer Commission in 1936,1945,and 1972 respectively,Disagreed with the classification of cannabis as a schedule one drug.

      the legal system makes to much money off takeing peoples property to legalize it.

    1)nowhere does it say that they were illegals. 2)They weren't "on the street". 3)The drug war is lost. Big Pharm,Law enforcement and the Prison industry won. They get huge budgets to arrest and house over 800,000 citizens for possession of marijuana,EACH YEAR. Remember Prohibition?? It STILL does not work.Meanwhile,in FL,an average of 7 people die of Legal medicine overdose each day. How messed up is that?? Quit being hypocrites.

      The facts are there to support you statement about 7 deaths from prescription drugs daily. This does not mean that the overdoses were from drugs that the person had a prescription for, thus making the drug an illegal drug for this person to have. The drugs are either legally obtained with a valid prescription (probably not contributing to many overdoses) or illegally obtained on the street which probably contributes a lot to the number of overdoses. It is all in the way you spin the facts.

        Ever heard of doctor shopping. It is illegal to obtain drugs from different doctors. Just ask Rush!

        Here's a fact that cannot be spun. No one can OD on cannabis. It is physiologically impossible to consume enough cannabis to cause death from the compounds in it. Cannabis does not enhance violence in users,unlike alcohol. The current prohibition has no scientific or rational basis. War On otherwise Law-abiding citizens.
