  1. More anti cannabis propaganda. Cops are the real threat to the public not cannabis users. No longer following this YouTube page

  2. It's always negative publicly that marijuana gets how about doing stories on how marijuana has saved thosands of people's lives that got off opioids because the marijuana is much better for you it doesn't kill you it's alot safer for everyone

  3. It's a disaster for law enforcement cause they don't have any more easy arrests.

  4. There should be zero procecutions, grow or smoke what you like…"freedom".This is garbage news. They want the leaverage to incarcerate more people so they can make money off suffering. States,counties,and the federal gov all subsidize incarceration. So creeps want to cash in on that taxpayer money.

  5. I side with legalize and release all the non violent (Beings) That this oppressive system has detained. The meaning of Non Violent?? Was the Violence Caused Due to Arrest, or Fear of Arrest?? Many Cases need Review!! Reduce the Population of These Degrading, Violent , Schools Teaching How to Harm and Hate and Discriminate!!! ((PRISONS)) How many families has this law destroyed? How many have lost homes, careers, vehicles, land Lives destroyed?? How many billions of the peoples tax dollars have been spent on another War?? What about the gang violence??
    Just look what it cost YOU THE TAX PAYER!!! 30,000 Dollars per Year 3 in a Cell that is 7 feet by 10 feet = 90,000 Per Cell Each YEAR!!! They are not eating steaks or sleeping on a certa!!! Concrete bed with a 2 inch mat!!! Fighting for their lives and being treated like animals!!!!! WHO MADE THESE LAWS!!!!!!!
    It is not you and I who make these laws!!
    The Corporations PAY Lobbyist who in turn Buy Favors ((BRIBE)) their friends !!!
    I do not see people drinking Gasoline or Eating Poison? No Jail Time no Crime??
    WHO PROFITS?? Do you own STOCK in this SYSTEM!!! You ARE !!!
    WHO PAYS??? EVERYONE ELSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. Yes…if every state legalized it would be exactly like liquor in state run shops…
    …..no one wants mexican schwag.

  7. If it's recreational it's no longer classified as a drug because drugs are not recreational, so that's like someone telling you how many tomatoes you can grow flood the markets with cheap weed because everyone is growing it and boom it now is not worth growing to sell it and you knocked off half the war on drugs in one year

  8. Well if the police took black market weed why did they have it in a ventilated drying room like they gonna re sell it

  9. 1:30 why they taking such good care of them plants, at least one of them cops is a grower..

  10. the feds are beyond stupid…. weed is gonna be legalized and yet this is what they are locking people for

  11. Are we surprised that law enforcement is against it? I'd rather they spent there time rounding up violent criminals.

  12. prohibition creates more crime. prohibition also creates a path to taking wealth out of a community with trafficking.

  13. GET IT. O F F. SCHEDULE ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FREEDOM IN AMERICA… REMEMBER folks???!!

  14. This land of (FREE??? ) country is a JOKE!!! THEY ARE HOLDING PEOPLES HEALTH HOSTAGE IN PURSUIT OF AN EVIL AGENDA!!!

  15. THEY ARE HINDERING 👨‍👨‍👦 PEOPLE FROM GOOD HEALTH!! THEY ARE DISGUSTING!!! Free peoples right yo CHOOSE! I SHOULDN'T EVEN HAVE TO SAY THAT!

  16. Are you HELPING (The way you're supposed to) or HINDERING peoples' right ✔️ TO 💉 HEALTH, you nut cased monsters… UGGGGGG DISGUSTING!!!

  17. Law enforcement 🚔 = PUPPETS, NOT THINKERS!!!shame on America that this sacred plant is desicrated the way it is. HELP! NOT HINDER peoples' rights and freedoms to HEALTH!!!!!

  18. BOOOOOOOO!!! SHAME ON THESE irresponsible 💨 airheads for NOT 📵 DEALUNG WITH FACTS!!!!!

  19. FACT: WE HAVE, IN OUR human bodies, ENDOCINABINOIDS which MATCH this 🌷 Magnificent Plant. Are these propaganda crows saying THAT GOD didn't know what GOD was doing???!!!!!!!

  20. What FAKE PROPAGANDA!!!! Toó bad that the FACTS are that From babies to senoir citizens…. EVERYONE Benefits from this natural HERB which has been around since WE HAVE!!!!

  21. If the government would just legalize and let people grow there plants there wouldn't be much crime associated with . Marijuana should cost 60-100 a ounce depending thats what it probably should be artificially lower down too . If not then like whats the point they need to drive down the price . Much like alcohol and allow those that need weed for many ailments get it for free w ssi or Medicare-medicade

  22. Get rekt prohibitionist scum. Learn to mind your own business and you'll be fine.

  23. Now that is just plain stupid they is no such thing as an illegal grow house that is a bunch of government paid off sheepels stealing another man's plants that is his right to do what they want not man's stupid so call made up laws just to take someone else's propriety.

  24. Is it my body? Who owns me?

    right that feminists have fought for specifically again and again in the United States: every woman’s right to control her body.

  25. How many thousands of years have our ancestors used nature as the source of all remedies and cures?? Now how many years has big pharmaceutical dissected, manipulated and then monopolized on nature?? Should all of humanity suffer or be caged for ingesting an oil, seed, root, leaf or flower that has been used for thousands of years? They spray and alter our crop's with ROUNDUP?? They alter the genetic makeup of our foods!! Poisoning our air, food, sea and yes me!!!
    Big Lobbies and even Bigger Profit!!! Do I this Natural Living Man have a right to use all of Nature?? Has anyone noticed the almost complete suppression of natural cures and remedies?? Big Profit for Big Pharmaceutical and even Bigger Jails!!

  26. Maybe the police should stop wasting money on the raids if the prosecutors aren’t charging for the “crimes”. Maybe go after the doctors over prescribing opioids, or the actual heroin rings, or the pedophile human trafficking rings, etc… you’re blowing tax payers money enforcing a plant that no ones sees as a crime today. It’s like the coal miners begging to scrape rocks to find more coal even though no one wants to coal energies today. Find a new career do something useful; same goes to the police start enforcing laws the people actually want you to focus on and bring justice to the true criminals in this country.

  27. As a Colorado resident I can tell you this story is mostly a lie, first off believe it or not people grew weed in their houses before it was illegal…I know,shocker! Second of all you dont use "explosive" chemicals when growing weed like this story stupidly claims. Why do democratic states news constantly lie?

  28. This is literally a complaint about the fact it “isn’t” federally legal.
    These grievances if taken seriously must admit they derive “from” the drug war.
    Legalization is the most logical way to remove a black market and is even stated within this bit of “news”.

  29. The looming cost of fascist oppression has plagued our society for too long. Gardening isn't a crime, the only criminal actions I see here are that of the armed gestapo pigs harassing gardeners at gunpoint in order to steal their property and kidnap them at ransom (aka bail). We the people decide the laws in a democracy, and the people have spoken. These "officers" ought to be charged with domestic terrorism and any sponsor of this "news" station ought to be boycotted out of business for supporting them. The revolution is now, the legalization bills are making progress, and the prohibitionists have lost. When legal cannabis bankrupts the pharmaceutical industry, the opiate epidemic will disappear. We the people have chosen to end this illegitimate prohibition, we the people have chosen to stand up for our freedom from our authoritarian oppressors, we the people will stand together and our voice will be heard!

  30. It's a plant,GOD grew it,it's free,and in the bible,it helps veterans(American), which Putin hates,if,you don't like GOD,get over it,the police should go look for phentanal, and drunks.

  31. So stupid NY woman goes to Colorado for a week and becomes an expert. Horseshit

  32. no amount of propaganda will stop citizens from accessing the safest alternative medication. the most dangerous part of using cannabis is getting caught with it. if they banned blueberries people would plant blueberry bushes everywhere. its nonsense to play nazi dictatorship in a free society. why dont we ban cigarettes and alcohol? ban sugar. ban sex..
