I'm sure that many marijuana growers and sellers are thankful to the
local police and the Federal Drug Enforcement Agency for this recent
pot bust and others like it. ("Police make $140K pot bust" Dec. 6, and page A1 today).

Without marijuana busts like this, marijuana would be worth what
other easy-to-grow weeds are worth - very little. Thanks to so-called
"drug-warriors" like the Drug Enforcement Administration, the
easy-to-grow weed is more valuable than pure gold - and completely tax
free. Any marijuana growers, sellers or traffickers arrested will soon
be replaced. They always are.
