    Drug Operations Group WHERES the drugs??? Marijuana is not a drug. It’s all natural. Alcohol KILLS people everyday. Marijuana cannot kill a person by its self. In the 1900s hemp companies were putting the paper companies out of business. It’s all a joke. People need to learn the true facts. Go get the coke heads and the heroin users.

  • WAKE UP PEOPLE

    How many deaths nation wide via marijuana this year? How many deaths in Kenosha this year via heroin? In Chicago there was 72 deaths in 72 HOURS this year alone! Maybe the focus for the drug task force should be shifted a bit, but what do I know?

    Well I know who this man is and i agree with the fact that weed isnt that big of a deal but this situation in my eyes is called Karma, He is a woman beater and has been for years, from what i hear, he did nothing good with the money he was making from selling weed illegally anyways, someone mentioned to go after the coke heads well guess what, NEWSFLASH: HE WAS A COKE HEAD THAT DID VERY HORRIBLE THINGS TO WOMEN AND GOOD THING THEY BUSTED HIM FOR THIS INSTEAD OF HIM REMAINING ON THE STREETS USING ALL THIS FREE MONEY TO USE DRUGS AND SEVERELY BEAT WOMEN, SPLITTING HER HEAD OPEN, KNOCKING TEETH OUT AND ENDING UP WITH A MURDER CHARGE. ABUSIVE RELATIONSHIPS ARE THE HARDEST TO GET OUT OF AND THIS WAS THE WORK OF GOD SAVING SOMEONE ELSES LIFE AND GIVING THAT MAN THE KARMA HE DESERVES. THINK ABOUT THAT YALL. THAT S THE GODS HONEST TRUTH BEHIND THIS PHYCO! THANK GOD THIS HAPPENED OR IT WOULD HAVE BEEN MURDER CHARGES EVENTUALLY. GUARANTEED

    The sooner the legislators that are taking campaign money from Big Pharma, Police Unions, for Profit Prisons, alcohol and tobacco are removed from their seats and are replaced with legislators that are FOR THE PEOPLE BY THE PEOPLE, the sooner Wisconsin can have sensible cannabis laws on the books. I want to call on the investigative media to look deeply into where people such as Leah Vukmir, Mary Lazich, Robin Vos, and many others that have been against responsible, economically sound cannabis reform are getting their campaign funding. Cannabis reform should bring about the legalization of Cannabis for MEDICAL, INDUSTRIAL and RECREATIONAL use. With 4 states and the District of Columbia having legalized cannabis for recreational use, each of these states have seen a reduction in violent crimes, opiate overdoses, drunk driving and many more situations that reduce the quality of life for the citizens and burden the government. With nearly 30 states legalizing Cannabis for medical use, these states have seen a quality of life increase for people of all ages from our children to the veterans that have fought for our freedoms. Again, the reductions in opiate overdoses in these states are dramatic and can only benefit those with the need for this MEDICATION in Wisconsin. From an economic standpoint, Colorado has taken in MILLIONS of tax revenue dollars, considering the shortfall we are projected to have in the state of Wisconsin, this would be a fiscally responsible for Wisconsin. Just for comparison purposes, Colorado and Wisconsin have a population base within 10% of each other and have similar city sizes. Thousands of average to above average wage jobs has been created in all of these states, considering Wisconsin among the lowest rated states for job growth this would be an additional benefit to the citizens and the state of Wisconsin itself. Right here in Milwaukee, crime is off the charts, sensible cannabis reform would be a substantial step in reducing the violent crimes in Milwaukee. All of the information the legislators regurgitate is out dates and now through scientific research from around the world have been debunked, it is time these legislators either come out of the dark ages or be removed from their legislative seat.

    even if the guy wasnt selling coke or heroin you cant turn your head that he was selling a large amount of dope, tax free. just saying. he wasnt growing a small amount for personal use. 57 plants. 17 bags filled. even if weed was legal he would still be breaking many many laws.just my opinion. i wish him the best

  • Keep it 100,

    Id rather spend my tax dollars on a “Trump wall” that will help reduce the cartel traffic and keep Mexicos problems out of USA. Lets not waste our resourses on raiding a grown mans home over pot plants. Honestly I think adults that use marijaunna in moderation is OK. Lets be real, most anti marijaunna propaganda is bs based on no research but now researchers smarter than me and you dillusional pot heads have proven that weed is linked with brain damage with (heavy) usage over (long) periods of time and may lower or stunt IQ development in (children)..Thats the most negative information on pot that is legit and that’s still not nearly as bad as alcohal, tobacco, heroin, cocaine that can cause brain cancer or death after the first use, plus marijaunna has a positive side by actually helping sick people.. so lets legalize marijaunna, tax it ,regulate it like alcohal and and use it to help pay for the wall that helps keep DEADLY hard drugs out. Trump wants to legalize and Trump knows the medicinal benifits. The mainstream media demonizes Trump but 90% of the media is controlled by the NWO.
