GRAYSON COUNTY, TX - The Grayson County Sheriff's Office and Texas DPS investigators found $80,000 worth of marijuana plants growing in northwest Grayson County earlier this week.

Sgt. Rickey Wheeler of the Grayson County Sheriff's Office says narcotics investigators flying over a site northwest of Liberty Road and U.S. Highway 377 discovered about 100 marijuana plants, each about 6 feet tall, all served by an elaborate irrigation system. They say they do have a suspect in mind and will question that person later.

Wheeler says they are seeing an increasingly large number of sophisticated marijuana growing systems across North Texas.

    Really! You mean, their wasting out tax payers dollars flying around looking for marijuana? Why not try finding the people knocking out my window in my truck and stealing my GPS, then coming back a few months later stealing my neighbors BBQ one week, and mine the next! It only weighed a couple hundred pounds, looks like somebody could figure that out! Legalize weed, and clean the streets of Meth, Crack, and Cocaine!

    Scary part, Zyklon? Maybe there is a reason for that. Have you checked for any new horticultural merit badges in the BSA?

    With California about to remove all restrictions on its use, the federal government will have to drop its criminality as well. The results will be immediate. The vast profits in marijuana will disappear as anyone can grow this. The crime associated with importation, sales, and enforcement of territories will leave the gangs without a product to support them. Violence and crime will drop. Prisons will not need as much space and the State and nation will benefit. Crime in Mexico will also go down dramatically. They will continue to try to survive off of coke and meth, but with a legal alternative, they will be vastly short of customers and profits And BESIDES Many stores that did a brisk business in fake pot have already gotten around bans by making slight changes to K2's chemical formula, creating knockoffs with names such as "K3," "Heaven Scent" and "Syn".

    I wonder what the tax on $80,000 dollars would be if we lived in a country where pot could be taxed. But instead, lets keep pushing that local money down to Mexico!

    The scary part is that the plants seem to have been growing near the Boy Scout hiking trail.
