If they’d legalize the stuff we wouldn’t have these victimless crimes. Or something.
Sounds like they got away with all the cash!
Feral descendants of the gold miners again.
It is legal in California. Peaceful protestors from a neighboring illegal farms are suspected.
Descendants of the ferals from whom the gold miners took the mines.
I thought it was legal in California no?
It’s legal. The idea was that the legalization would change things. It hasn’t. Such a big surprise.
its legal except when its not...uh, yeah, thats it.
Were the killings ‘mostly peaceful’?
If people wouldn’t do drugs and pay pimps for prostitutes we wouldn’t have drug related crime, dysfunctional drug dependent losers, and STD’s either.
Los agentes registraron el área en busca de un sospechoso, pero no encontraron a nadie...
Este parece haber sido un incidente aislado y no hay ninguna amenaza para el público en general...
Los investigadores piden a cualquier persona con información llamar al 951-955-2777
With all the taxes and bribes required, it is still cheaper to go to the neighborhood drug dealer for the stuff. A little competition in the drug industry generally initiates a little pushback.
There’s a difference between simply being legal, and being controlled by the Gov’t. If something is controlled by the Gov’t, the price is going to be higher, there are rules as to who can sell it, where they can sell it, etc.
Well, if you repeal prohibition but then slap a 50% tax on the product, then bootleggers are obviously still going to have a niche.
It’s the same reason we still have cigarette smugglers in this country even though cigarettes have been legal forever.
“it is still cheaper to go to the neighborhood drug dealer”
The neighborhood dealer also won’t make you place an order online ahead of time, wait for a confirmation, stand in line, wear a mask and observe social distancing guidelines while trying to get your product. Hell, half of them will come deliver it.

Six were suffering from gunshot wounds, oddly, most people don't exactly enjoy gunshot wounds, but since it's California, ya never know.
