The government is a joke. Without these guys, the kids won't be able to get weed. They will just get something else instead. How do the guys in charge not understand this? There's a reason marijuana has existed for so many thousands of years. It produces fruit that can be smoked to provide medicinal benefit.

Ive learned my lesson don't grow weed in florissant. 1st Now florissant is not the hood.2nd there was no tip that I was growing the gorilla style tactics of the undercover florissant dect. and unifom officer timothy swesso led to this.3rd they didn't have anything better to do than force there way into my private residence without a warrant. I am not a drug dealer or a trouble maker. Legalize marijuana its safer than the alcohol. Thank you
