At first glance, it had all the makings of a major drug bust. About 40 Lodi police and firefighters raided a commercial warehouse Tuesday, Sept. 14, and found 30 pot plants worth roughly $4,200, along with two pounds of what appeared to be crystal methamphetamine.

But the bust turned out to be, well ... a bust.

    It is not true to say that there are no regulations for law enforcement in CA. The AG Jerry Brown issued the guidelines in August of 2008 after 13 years of our gov't not doing what they were entrusted to do by Prop. 215. http://aboutmedicalmarijuana.com/ag-guidelines/

    And Matthew Lorentzen, marijuana is not addictive and is much safer than all of the drugs that are sold in pharmacies. Cannabis is safer than table salt. No one has ever died from an OD of cannabis. It has been used for 3000+ years, you don't think it is safe? YTOYA.

    Marijuana destroys lives in part by the addiction cycle. If advocates truly were concerned about medical benefits, they would admit that there are already FDA approved safe and effective pharmaceuticals available by the traditional prescription at your local pharmacy that are more effective than smoking marijuana.
