Cue the Amblyopia Defense in 3, 2, 1...
Shades of John Jordan's 1998 Gilbert & Sullivanesque campaign jingle: "Wes Chesbro! Wes Chesbro! He's gone to Sacramento and he's never coming back!"
What is it with these SoNapa would-be polito rich boys? When they try to do something um, "edgy," it just comes off, well, *lame*...
Per the news release reported in the ER:
"Over the course of Tuesday’s activity, officers located around ten thousand marijuana plants estimated to be worth between $25 and $60 million on the street."
That's two orders of magnitude higher than "a hundred plants." So, either the feds are seriously exagerating, which I would not be surprised if they were doing a little (i.e., that works out to a median value of $4250 per plant, a theoretically possible but highly unlikely return), or there's much more going on here than the handful of "small growers" to whcih several of you apparently have some person acquaintance or contact.
Oops, I meant "Rambos" not the possessive... Lynne Truss ("Eats, Shoots, and Leaves") would cane me if she saw that...
frick, I'm calling "Godwin's Law" on you.
I'll allow that cannabis, where responsibly cultivated (not involving energy-intensive artificial lighting, generators, sensitive vegetation removal, diesel spills into anadromous creeks, trashing of natural areas, or wannbe Rambo's boobytrapping their patches) may very well have a legitimate role in carbon sequestration, as an alternative fuelstock, and, arguably ought be be either fullly legalized or at least decriminalized for personal use and appropriate commercial uses. However, I fail to see where valid critiques on the dubious reasons for and benefits of interdiction against it warrants being conflated with the historic genocidal events you cite.
