5 Tons of Marijuana Seized in Indianapolis, State’s Largest Drug Bust

Indiana BustMary Beth Schneider reports in the Indianapolis Star:

An investigation that started in March with money falling from a hidden compartment in a truck ended last week as apparently the largest drug bust in Indiana history.

More than 5 tons of marijuana and more than $4.3 million are now in law enforcement hands, with four men in the Marion County Jail on charges that could put them in prison for life.

The size of the bust has law enforcement confident that they have, at least for now, halted a large drug distribution operation in Indianapolis and probably affected a Mexican drug cartel …

    They affected nothing. 5 tons of illegal substance in one location, only indicates how massively they are losing. This is just one operation, imagine the corruption required to get it across the border. Now consider all the other smuggling operations. History has taught as one thing with out fail, the bigger the bust, the more they are losing.
    The drug war, a American for profit war civil not targeting drugs but targeting drug users, the right ring loves, the abuse, the murder, the infringement of civil rights and that’s the police.
    Hollywood loves it too, the biggest drug users making the most noise about ohh evil drug dealers, perhaps they are just cranky about how much they are being charged for their cocaine parties.
    Word has it the CIA is still the biggest drug operation on the planet, used for generating off balance sheet income (away from the prying eyes of auditors, especially with regard to how it is being spent) and of course for actively destabilising governments all over the world especially South America, can’t have those South Americans uniting and out competing the US best to force a drug war on them and make sure they can’t win and ensure it is destructively violent by supplying guns and ammunition.

      If it was a Mexican Cartel shipment, it was likely dirt weed anyway. No big loss.

    The LEOs who participated in this travesty, could have been better employed — even to the profit of society — in the detection and pursuit of street-assailants, robbers, sneak-thieves, burglars, financial fraudsters, murders, and other low-lifes of like ilk; provided that they are directed to seek T R I A L evidence and unconditionally forbidden the absolutely abominable short-cut of means to coerce a plea-bargain.

    This makes me think that, after the revolution, any old-regime LEO who had been involved in anti-cannabis enforcement in any way and at any level, should be permanently disqualified ever from another position in law enforcement, even down to a private guard’s license.

    My guess is that all the glass bongs in Indianapolis are full of primo and this is all the swag weed they couldn’t even give away.

    They can have all the shwag. Full of stems, seeds, mold, improper drying, excessive leaf, improper trimming techniques, bugs and who knows what type of fertilizers were used. Disgusting. Imagine if banannas where illegal and treated the same way. I wouldnt eat moldy banannas.
     Americans have spiritually progressed far too much to tolerate horrible grades of cannabis. Fresh and tasty, or nothing at all…..
     As for the Mexican cartel……4 million is what they make every day. The drug war is a war on American liberty, and to prop up the various cartels. Everyone knows they wouldnt be able to survive on kidnapping or extortion  ……we have amazing police officers to solve crimes like that right?????
