another brilliant comment. you're either a cop or a genius or both.
or perhaps all the marijuana you have not smoked has kept that mind of your so razor keen. kudos to you.
We had the dubious distinction of being the coolest bust on the playa (in the cops' words), and we had to unstick the cops from some of our more attractive female camp members who they were spending a little too long trying to search. We had a lawyer as well, which helped the cops calm down.
It does not take a genius of your caliber precip, however, to note that we were indeed, breaking the law when people were smoking marijuana in our camp, and that not until we get our legislators to change the laws around marijuana use, will we be free of harassment in public and private spaces.
Nonetheless, bm llc, made a conscious decision a few years ago to let blm patrol the site, and to disallow firearms, etc. that may or may not have been the right decision. when there were firearms, you never saw a ranger jump into a camp unannounced like they do now. BLM is fully capable of not so strictly patrolling the campsites, regardless of what people are doing inside their domiciles, but the cost is so low, that people just roll over and let them harrass them, and ticket them.
if we had firearms, they would not come into our camps. not to suggest that firearms are the answer. some degree of respect that did not come from the barrel of a gun would be the answer. And of course, an end to the irrational war on drugs would also be an answer.
