I think the police are required to investigate if they get a call to 911 that hangs up. It could have been a person being murdered after all. (I think there was a case where the police did not investigate far enough recently in the Vancouver area and a woman died.) I think if the dad had answered the door when they knocked, he could have saved himself a lot of trouble, but there was no answer at the door, so the police had to go in and have a look.

I'm not sure why they were allowed to look around after they found out what the phone call was about. Maybe it was procedure (in case someone was being murdered.) In any case, I'm glad he got caught. I do not think marijuana is harmless, and anyway, why promote second hand smoke just as tobacco is being phased out? That makes no sense.

I am all in favour of milder drugs like alcohol, sugar, caffeine, chocolate . . . :drunken: :hic: We do need to have some fun now and again. But when people insist on doing illegal drugs, I have to wonder what's going on, when there's plenty of legal stuff to indulge in.

so you prefer drugs that can kill you? alcohol causes all sorts of accidents and poisons the body, too much sugar can cause tooth decay and diabetes, caffeine can cause strokes and heart attack and chocolate... well, that's not really a drug even though it does contain a few chemicals.

cannabis hasn't killed anyone and it isn't addictive, i don't see what the problem is :?

Too much of anything can kill you. Too much water can lead to nausea, vomiting, unconsciousness and death. At least it doesn't affect the person next to you.

With marijuana there are consent issues, because of the second hand smoke. And people may have problems with asthma, bronchitis, etc., so second hand smoke matters a lot. Sorry, smoking anything will never get my approval.

alcohol causes more problems, also cannabis can be eaten instead of smoked.

Seeds of the weed topic

Grow ops are often the business of organized crime. Children should not be exposed to such an environment. These botanical enterprises are not innocent little home based businesses, and illegal wiring, often poorly set up can be a fire hazard and such electricity is often tapped in without permission. Nasty things like mold and rot can render the house unsafe. There was a grow op in my city and the house was boarded up and finally torn down because of the structural damage caused by the plumbing and electrical abuse. Insurance will not cover such damage, because the owner/landlord should have known what was going on inside the house.

Nothing innocent here. The kid did all right. :)
