I have been noticing a trend this year. The cops are making big busts (some record sizes) which means there are way more growers growing larger amounts. All the money thrown away on prohibition could have done much more good somewhere else. The busts stop nothing. If the police think it does (which we know they do not - on record) the cop must be a rooky with high ideals ( in this case continueing prohibition would be a low ideal.), because the older ones know the difference. They would always rather pick up the guy who has smoked pot over a guy drunk out of his skull. End of arguement.
