    alright mister rural have you ever heard of teeneage massacres and cartel in south georgia? NO. Marijuana is a plant that is illigal bc it cant be taxed. same as moonshine. wat did this arrest solve? that those people wont smoke pot anymore? WOW thats a breakthrough arrest there! how ab all the rape, gang activities, murders, drunk driving and thefts going on now bc of the economy? there still happening as of now. plus who said they were growing to sell or whatnot? could be for personal use. they didnt hurt anyone or threaten anyone, just had bad luck and a way strict police force. basically i agree TOTALLY with tom and te police should look for more violent crimes than petty pot posession charge. But PIGS will be PIGS

    A crime is a crime. Whether it be shoplifting, drugs, or murder. Stop making excuses for boys like this, put them is jail for some time and maybe they will learn a lesson. The mess we are in now in the US is because everyone makes excuses for their kids. It has to to stop.

    To the person in Tally complaining abou the arrest of the two boys...obviously you support such illegal activity so that makes me wonder if TPD should search your residence. Lowndes County did an excellent job. The young man who gave consent to serach could have just as easily told them no which would have possibly prompted a search warrant. Kudos to the concerned citizens who care enough about their neighborhood to report their observations..

    Tom, gimme a break -- if we do not sometimes enforce the drug laws here, how could we possibly keep the cartels in business? And remember, if we have no cartels, we can't have massacres of teenagers. Besides, small time free-lancers bring the price down... Think, man. What does the tax-payer's dollar and our liberty amount to in comparison to important stuff like that?

    So how much money did we spend here? Really, if I were a police officer I would not be one bit proud of arresting these boy's. You know in your heart its wrong. Times have changed. Now go arrest some bad guy's and make us all proud of our law enforcement.
