If the plant was just legalized, there would be no reason to make these synthetic garbage drugs that endanger people's lives, and this mans business wouldn't be interrupted by government thugs just DYING to crack some skulls...Granted the owner took the chance and actually asked for this to happen, the whole thing is ridiculous...there's so much more money to be made and safety to increase with regulation of the "real deal"...

Send them all them arrogant drug dealers to Leavenworth for 20 yrs hard labor with no parole. That'll learn em. We could always use a new license plate manufactured.

Time to legalize marijuana. It's nothing but job security for cops and jailers anymore. There is absolutely no reason it should be illegal. Alcohol and cigarettes are both much more detrimental to your health when used regularly.

This guy isnt too smart, he basically dared them to bust him. He was "expecting them" and he had an arsenal of guns and 50k cash, brilliant!

15 cops with batons... good use of city resources. Two cops would have been sufficient - the guy expected a raid and is making a political statement.

I applaud the actions of this true American. Too bad we can't find people of the same fiber to staff up St. Paul and Washington DC.

Sorry to say but you can arrest this guy and make anything you want "illegal" but something will always take it's place. You are just pushing people to the dangerous fringes. I do not advocate drug use in any form, but it is going to happen. I can't explain why people do this to their bodies, but they do.
