    This incident shows the imbalance of rational thought in Michigan Government and Law Enforcement. The police should be protecting legal marijuana growers who are treated worse than criminals by police who do not like the Michigan Medical Marijuana Act voted in by the People. Marijuana growers are an easy bust, little danger of being shot or physically challenged, and easy to take their money or property. Governor Snyder, Bill Shuette, the State Police and County Sheriffs, and their very cooperative Court system are ever ready to prey on a marijuana grower; face it, there’s not much money to be had by those people by catching a murderer.

    It only goes to prove that “LEGALIZATION” is NOT created to ‘serve & protect’ those vulnerable communities, but is really just another form of government TAX GRAB & money laundering, no doubt to justify their terrorist-style police budgets…

    You gave excellent reasons that cannabis growers ( and consumers) are an “easy bust” – yes it is easy to harass & intimidate sick, traumatized people using “laws” designed against them, just study Nazi Germany. Which is my point exactly… Everything Hitler did was “legal.”

    To effectively END cannabis prohibition (ie the so-called ‘war on drugs’), the people must ABROGATE ( get rid of) all cannabis prohibition laws, except two: don’t sell to minors without parental knowledge & consent, and make it illegal to contaminate this plant with noxious chemicals for profit. That’s how we stop criminals. All the hype is not about preventing or stopping crime, it’s about money.

    Legalization only promises “some” people privileges that other communities can ‘ill’ afford, pun intended.

    Thankfully, America has seen this before, once as a Tea Tax in Boston, and it made all the difference as to who ran the country from then on… 😉
