  1. It is a shame that the people voted to let patients in need of this medicine hae it but give them only the option to grow their own. if you get surgery and are prescribed Morphine, far mor dangerous then Marijuanna , you don't have to grow your own poppy seeds. Nevada should put a larhe tax on it and we could spend it on education. The police can't get it all and if you are prescribed it or over 21 it is a personal choice if you ar not hurting anyone. Grow up people and stop the lunacy.

  2. Maybe these marijuanna killers should be making sure illegals arn't committing crimes against Nevadans instead of hiking in the mountains and pulling weeds.

  3. Good job by Law Enforcement again, to all the potheads if you don't like it.. keep whining, haha!

    Not whining, Laughing !! At fools who think that this gross waste of their Tax dollars is going to make a dent in the use and availability of Cannabis. IF it accomplishes anything it will temporarily raise the Value of Cannabis making it MORE Likely that someone else will start another grow next week, but Morons like the Know Nothing Prohibitionists like to thump their chest and bray.

  5. Was just reading the story on making on line gambling legal by the feds. Where is the difference here. Hypocrites!!!!!!!!

  6. These people need to find something else to justify their phony baloney jobs.Go catch some Meth cookers.

  7. Hundreds of thousands of tax dollars to destroy hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of pot.Sounds like a lose,lose to me.When are these IDIOTS gonna wake up.It's been around for thousands of years and it's not going away.It's still and will continue to be the largest cash crop in this country,and "growing".You've lost the war on pot. Admit it and move on.Spend your DEA money on food for the homeless,a cure for Childhood Diabetes,something that the PEOPLE of this country can get behind.Stupid is as Stupid does.

  8. Still more whining from the pothead crowd, awesome.

  9. Now put that in your pipe and smoke it.

  10. Please check out this petition asking for safe access for patients.

    I believe the increased marijuana activity is due to the problem-plagued voter-approved program.
