You’ll Feel Safer Now: 87 Year-Old Man Busted for Pot Growing Operation

Via The Huffington Post:

Another day, another arrest in America’s fruitless war on drugs. This time it’s an 87 year-old man who will undoubtedly die in prison…all for the crime of growing and selling a medicinal plant that a majority of Americans favor decriminalizing altogether:

An 87-year-old Denver man was formally charged with multiple marijuana-related felonies on Friday: possession with intent to distribute-more than 100 pounds, cultivation-more than 30 plants, and possession of marijuana-more than twelve ounces.

The Denver District Attorney’s Office says that Edward Bogunovich was growing more than 400 marijuana plants in the backyard of his west Denver home. The number of plants exceeds that which “he was allowed for medical cultivation,” according to a Denver DA’s Office press release.

    This is what elders are reduced to, pot grower.  At least he’ll get three hots and a cot and not have to worry about losing everything he owns, for which he was growing pot to pay for.  He needs to plead that he didn’t know what the plant was!

    They probably thought they caught Tommy Chong.

  4. Lock the bastard up and throw away the key! This is America, damn it! We don’t need your devil weed. We have xanax and SSRIs that are much safer than poisonous pot. Praise the Lord, now let’s go bomb some more countries. 

  5. We are all safe now. Don’t worry about gun nut crazies. Those are harmless. But this guy? He is Scareface himself!

  6. Beautiful headline. Captures the futility of the drug war bitingly. Good one.

    Just futile and a disgrace.  So, he had a medical card, right?  This meager man is a ripe robust age of 85.  Wow, he looks like a real threat.  This is just stupid and assinine.  

  8. Americas streets are much safer now! 

  9. if this was the only atrocity committed during the war on drugs
    there might be some public outcry
    but give the fact that wee the sheeple have not shown any outrage whatsofuckingever
    the atrocities will continue on
    until Rome finally burns

      I am increasingly disgusted with Americans and their complete lack of initiative when it comes to their own republic.
