    He would, except he actually might have been a drug dealer.

    Except he had a medical MJ license he was applying for at the federal level for back pain and freely admits to using it for that reason.

    Yah that is quite a bit. But he does live in the middle of nowhere really. Probably just stocked up like someone would do at costco :) But I mean seriously. If you have major pain and don't feel like driving or going out every day to get your 1 ounce fix... why not stock up a little bit? All depends on your view point.

    Even still. What the cops did to his backyard was stupid.

    I'd have trouble identifying a juvenile pot plant. But, when I saw the picture, I didn't need the captioning to tell me, "daisies" - I immediately identified which were the daisies. Maybe if you don't ever do any gardening at all, they might look similar "hey, they're both green!" That's about where the similarity ends.

    And, during the raid, the guy was telling them they were daisies - that should have been all it took. Overzealous idiots in this case.

    Too many raids are crimes against the innocent.

    At 1.5 pounds you will be charged with drug trafficking.

    I dont understand the stupid Federal Govt. Either Legalize it or arrest everyone on Federal Charges who possess it.

    220 marijuana cases dismissed in King, Pierce counties

    Posted by Jonathan Martin

    UPDATE 3:03 p.m. King and Pierce County prosecutors are dismissing more than 220 misdemeanor marijuana cases in response to Tuesday&#8217;s vote to decriminalize small amounts of pot.
    In King County, 175 cases are being dismissed involving people 21 and older and possession of one ounce or less. I-502 makes one ounce of marijuana legal on Dec. 6, but King County Prosecutor Dan Satterberg decided to apply I-502 retroactively.
    &#8220;Although the effective date of I-502 is not until December 6, there is no point in continuing to seek criminal penalties for conduct that will be legal next month,&#8221; Satterberg said in a statement.
    The dismissed cases involved arrests in unincorporated King County, as well as the state highways and the University of Washington. About 40 of the cases had already been filed in court as criminal charges; those charges will be dismissed. Another 135 cases were pending charging decisions and will simply be returned to the arresting police agency.
    Pierce County Prosecutor Mark Lindquist said he was dismissing &#8220;about four dozen&#8221; pending cases where misdemeanor marijuana was the only offense. He said his staff was continuing to prosecute other cases where possession was secondary to a more serious charge, such as drunken driving.
    &#8220;The people have spoken through this initiative,&#8221; said Lindquist. &#8220;And as a practical matter, I don&#8217;t think you could sell a simple marijuana case to a jury after this initiative passed.&#8221;
    In an interview, Satterberg said his office would continue to prosecute marijuana possession above one ounce, allowing for &#8220;a buffer for those whose scales are less than accurate.&#8221; His office also charges felony possession &#8212; for people with more than 40 grams &#8212; although he said his staff routinely allows those defendants to plead down to a misdemeanor.
    &#8220;I think when the people voted to change the policy, they weren&#8217;t focused on when the effective date of the new policy would be. They spoke loudly and clearly that we should not treat small amounts of marijuana as an offense,&#8221; he said.
    I-502 campaign manager Alison Holcomb said she was &#8220;incredibly moved&#8221; by Satterberg&#8217;s announcement, which she said showed &#8220;incredible courage.&#8221;
    The decision supports a prime argument I-502 made during the campaign. A study by a group of academics found there had been 241,000 misdemeanor marijuana possession cases in Washington over the past 25 years, 67,000 of them in the past five years. &#8220;If 502 hadn&#8217;t passed, we&#8217;d see the same amount of marijuana possession cases every year,&#8221; she said. &#8220;What makes a difference is changing the law.&#8221;
    Satterberg is the first prosecutor to change charging policy after I-502, but other prosecutors are also considering these cases. Tom McBride of the Washington Association of Prosecuting Attorneys said his office &#8220;just starting to work through those issues.&#8221;
    Seattle City Attorney Pete Holmes has refused to prosecute misdemeanor possession cases since he took office.
    Earlier this week, the chief criminal deputy prosecutor in Spokane County, Jack Driscoll, appeared to take a more conservative position. He told the Spokesman-Review that, even after Dec. 6, the only marijuana which was legal to possess was pot sold in the state-licensed stores called for in I-502. Those stores won&#8217;t be created for at least a year.
    &#8220;The only thing that is legal is selling marijuana through those stores,&#8221; Driscoll said. &#8220;That will be regulated by the state. You can&#8217;t under this initiative have an ounce of marijuana that doesn&#8217;t come from a state-issued provider. You still can&#8217;t have black-market marijuana.&#8221;
    Holcomb disputed that interpretation. So did Satterberg, who called it a &#8220;very narrow reading&#8221; of the initiative. &#8220;I don&#8217;t know how you trace where (the marijuana) comes from,&#8221; he said.
    Satterberg said he expected federal authorities to seek an injunction to block implementation of I-502&#8242;s state licensing scheme for marijuana retailers and growers. &#8220;I think it&#8217;s the kind of issue the U.S. Supreme Court will have a final word on,&#8221; said Satterberg, calling it an &#8220;an important state&#8217;s rights issue.&#8221;
    But he does not expect a federal lawsuit to target the types of cases he is dismissing, noting that states already have widely divergent penalties for marijuana possession Nice job Pierce and King County

    I wonder how often it is the cops who are planting the drugs on the suspects or in the homes of those they arrest when they do a drug raid. I mean, how hard would it be for the cops to carry around a few extra bags of weed just so they can claim their arrest or raid was justified? It probably wouldn't be very hard at all.

    Canadians have a reputation for doing the whole keystone cop routine, but it's better than Arizona shooting a two time Iraq veteran in his home in front of his mother because the law allowed them to bust down the door if they just claimed they smelled pot. In that case they didn't even find any pot.
