    I find it interesting that such a small county has an ENTIRE task force dedicated to narcotics... And you all think this is for weed?!

    I don't think you should publicly admit that you 'know all of these people.' It is known that most are pill pushers, so what does that say about you?

    The controlled substances were opiates... prescriptions from a pill mill in south Florida. Saying it was just pot is a pretty ignorant statement. Even if it was 'just pot', it's illegal too.

    This is actually a pathetic waste of resources, I know all of these people and it is all pot related, All of you talk about druggies but I bet every one of you stuff your faces with the governments prescriptions daily, POT so what! Crack take them out, and the Pill heads too! and that goes to all of you Hippocrates that say your christian, pot is grown from the earth, it was part of my Indian heritage, not all these pharmaceuticals you pop for every thing the doctor says is wrong with you! They ignore the real problems and go for the easy take down, that's lazy and a facade!

    I would suspect that most of the arrests are for Cannabis since the CS is mentioned. So, the Cannabis family of plants should be legalized. This would reduce the cost of law enforcement, the court system, and the prison system. The state of Florida could than regulate and tax Cannabis use. I believe that the state, just from recreational use alone, could raise over one Billion dollars a year in new tax revenue. This would go a long way to balancing the state budget. Cannabis can also be used to make cloth, paper, rope, feed stock for bio-fuels, etc. I wonder which has a higher cash crop value in Florida; cannabis or oranges?

      But for now, pot is ILLEGAL. So is driving on a suspended license. So is soliciting a minor for sex. So is jaywalking. Rules is rules people, if you didn't learn to follow them in school, you won't learn now.

    Great 18 more people we have to waste money to prosecute and incarcerate.

    The people who live here know the truth. These guys are not related to anyone who is someone. If they were they would have not been arrested and would be allowed to continue. This is just for show to the outsideres. Enjoy the show, this did not solve anything.
