    Here on the border (Yuma, Arizona), if you come into the US with under 500 pounds…YES, 500 POUNDS OF WEED, THEY WILL NOT BOTHER ARRESTING YOU!!!!! They just take your car, and escort you to the border fence and let you go. They find over 7 pounds strapped to little kids EVERY DAY!!! Major bust, my arse!

    If you have the choice to pay for cigarettes, get cancer and die, then you should have a choice to pay for marijuana, get hungry and order pizza.

    Don’t forget … Ocean City is a “dry” town. You can’t even buy beer there.

    Legalize it, tax it and devalue it. Stop wasting time and money on trying to control it. Soon we will look back on busts like this and it will seem so silly.

    Major marijuana seizure? I don’t know what’s worse, that authorities would see this amount as major, or that a media outlet would naively report it as such.
    Our tax dollars at work…maybe this is where Pig Christie needs to start trimming the fat, on the state’s smoke-and-mirrors war on drugs.

    go after the people selling the hard drugs. people are hooked on pills, meth. get that stuff off the street.

  • Pointless

    “…a major marijuana seizure”… really?! There’s easily 7lbs in a 2 block radius in any city in this country. Thank God the taxpayers supported an operation where this dangerous, life-destroying drug has been taken off the street!
