During a physical search of the residence, MONET agents and Mono County Sheriff’s Deputies subsequently discovered and recovered: approximately 20 pounds of processed marijuana; 225 mature and immature marijuana plants growing inside and outside the residence; and multiple illegal firearms.

Jeffrey GreeneJeffrey Greene, age 50, of Bridgeport, CA, and Justis Daniels, age 43, of Big Sur, CA, were operating a marijuana cultivation facility inside Mr. Greene’s Justis Daniels_1residence.

The 420 highway will never be the yellow brick road. It’s naive to think law enforcement costs will go down just because marijuana is legalized.

Poor Wayne. Soon this plant will be completely legal in our state, tax revenues will soar, law enforcement and penal system expenditures will plummet, and you’ll have to find other topics to show off your punctuation skills.

Wayne, it’s a herb and I’d like to know what you will call it when they legalize it next year? I wonder what our founding fathers called it?

Wayne, these guys are probably already out. The attorneys will proceed with their beagle legal baloney and these guys walk away with very light wallets. They are probably smoking some of their neighbors killer bud right now!

Mark….Back a few years ago, I knew a guy in the “business”,and he knew the owner of one of those medical “pot-shops”….and if this guy couldn’t get his girlfriend to pay the rent or overdue bills, he would regularly sell some of his weed for a discounted “I need the… Read more »
