Well... ...okay, but the Nazis would have killed, tortured or enslaved you and used your drugs on themselves. The police out there are obeying a sworn oath to uphold their job and enforce state and federal law.BitterDan wrote: Thats not really the point AntiM. I don't think people are saying that it is our constitutional right to smoke pot but illegal search and seizure is absolutely a violation of our rights. Also, harrassment is illegal and any officers participating in it are nothing more than neo-nazis.
Should they? To some extent at least, yes. If BM becomes a drug haven, it will be filled with drug dealers. PDX is occasionally afflicted by rashes of overdoses from bad heroin, and drug gangs on the west coast are bad shit. I think they could serve burners, taxpayers and the Great State of Nevada a whole lot better if they worried about the child prostitution and drug use going on in, say, Reno and stopped trying to bust joint-passing burners, but, I bet we all agree.
Busting somebody for smoking a joint is lame, but I bet there's a whole hell of a lot of instances of somebody getting spotted through night vision, headlights, smell or plain site where the cop just decides it's not worth fucking somebody over for a pipe hit. Others don't get it yet.
By the way, Dan, I heard a lot of great things about the moonshine tavern, and there were police hovering around there all the time. Saw somebody loaded into an ambulance one night and figured "Well, it's moonshine." I also wondered if serving "moonshine" offered a 100% probability of a visit by the ATF revenooers. Anything like that happen to you guys?
