"even if each plant fetched an unrealistic $1,500"

What's so unrealistic about that? Yields per plant are huge for outdoor operations. The last one that I umm heard about netted well over a pound per plant and sold for nearly $2k per pound.

.” Marijuana growers are “violent criminal terrorists” who wouldn’t hesitate to help other terrorists get into the country with the aim of causing mass casualties,"

Right, because as EVERYONE KNOWS, the first objective of marijuana growers is to kill as many of their customers as possible.

Yet again, this is why we need to replace these ineffective Republicants.

I remember when we exported MJ. But now most of our hard drugs come from Afghanistan ...

It's certainly possible, Bison @ 1 (in fact, I gave them the benefit of the doubt). But most growers don't average a pound per plant or sell outdoor weed at top dollar. Lots of outdoor plants end up kinda scraggly, and the plants that do grow large outdoors tend to produce shitty weed that's sold for less.

I am so sick of this crap! Wasted money, time and lives.

Any journalist who questions the legitimacy of the drug war will win a hug from me.
