    Now that's taking a bite out of crime! Pretty funny. "Large quantity" is one of those subjective, relative terms like "too spicy" or "expensive". Gotta love police economics too; if you paid $9800 for 493.4 grams of weed, or any portion of, you got ripped off. Just a couple of days before 420 too, what a shame. All the cops did here was ruin someone's weekend. Leave the pot smokers alone and go after the pills and powder!

    Pat yourselves on the back b'ys. Why can't you lot get the cocaine and pills off the streets? Why can't you do anything about the violent dealers of those drugs? Tessier place is just another example of your resources being put in the wrong places. You're wasting your time policing pot. Study after study shows how it is less harmful than tobacco and especially alcohol. It's time that law enforcement and government wake up and smell the reefer, and start taxing it instead of busting it.
