    Wonder why the driver didn’t quick jump out and rob the 76 in the middle of the chase?

    No creativity with the youth anymore-

    All those dead brain cells from Devil’s Lettuce makes for a dull story.

    C’mon kids, step it up and stay off that lettuce- Ms.Kemp has news stories to publish.

    • The devils lettuce is cash my friend.

      You should get a 10 for your comment a while ago how when Julie was in her tree people grew to screw the machine and now they do it to make the machine stronger. One of the more profound of your complaints.

      As my wife and ask each other “where are the environmental activists now that we really need em?” We both know the answer to that!

      Give em, hell matey!

      Cheers, CH

    • There is no excuse except a pure evil and hateful person to be so willing to spout off such unbelievably reefer madness. If prohibitionists like you are going to take it upon themselves to worry about “saving us all” from ourselves, then you need to start with the drug that causes more causes more detriment to our society than every other drug in the world COMBINED, which is alcohol!

      Why do prohibitionists like you feel the continued need to vilify and demonize marijuana when you could more wisely focus on a real, proven killer, alcohol, which again causes more detriment to our society than all other drugs, COMBINED?

      You backwards thinking prohibitionists really should get your priorities straight and/or practice a little live and let live. You’ll live longer, happier, and healthier, with a lot less stress if you refrain from being bent on trying to control others through Draconian Marijuana Laws. You have never controlled me and you never, ever will.

        People would drink less if it weren’t for the stress marijuana creates.

        An example is someone having a drink when they get home to relieve the stress of nearly being run off the road by a growdozer.

        Another reason people need a drink is from constant gunfire and water theft from grows around them.

        Someone may have a drink to calm their nerves after a butane lab sends up a mushroom cloud down the road.

        Those are examples of how people would drink less if marijuana was completely eradicated.

        Marijuana has blown up more homes than alcohol.

        Just put down the bong, confess your sins, and seek.help to overcome your marijuana addiction.

        We are here for your recovery and will encourage you to do the right thing. I’ll even get you a three gallon sprayer and quart of Garlon when you become 30 days marijuana free. We’re counting on you and want you to overcome this hurtle in life.

        You have friends that care.

        • Seek help. PLease. Then sell your computer.

          • HBC is seeking help. That is why “Team C.H.U.M.P.” was formed. If you would like to join the movement, let HBC know. Please no Lettuce for at least a month before you contact him. Lettuce breath makes him sick.

            I will give you a donation address, because I was considering it for the eclipse on 8/21

            76 is wrong because last time was Haley’s Comet.

            This is a special eclipse, major Led Zep sacrifice with a birthday the day before.

            Bring it.

    • So totally out of touch with reality. You ain’t nothin’ but another parasite advocating putting more people in prison to make you feel special. Drug abuse isn’t even on the top 10 list of priorities in America. It’s a priority to parasites like you because you’ve lost your free ride on the budget.

      70 years of drug war, 40 of it funded like a military conquest, killed people all over the world and 2 million Americans are in the justice system right now at the taxpayers expense for a prohibition offense. The only reason we went along with the Nixon relics that that their experts promised us they could end violent crime. In the last 40 years violent crime has gone through the roof.

      With no due respect. PROHIBITIONISTS LIKE YOU ARE AS VILE AS SLAVE OWNERS in the 19th Century. Marijuana prohibition was created as a tool of discrimination and racism and we still have to read this stuff today in 2016. It’s just another way of continuing the racism while seeking the high moral ground of a dumb bully. We are not going backward even if paranoid regressives like you can’t take it.

      • people, people.. chump’s clearly trolling with the best of ’em. why do you think his name has to do with a bridge.. trolls live under bridges.. lol

      • chumo, i love him. he is playing devil’s advocate to show just how ridiculous the anti-marijuana thought processes are.
        he is no more anti-herb than i am.
        and i am not.

      • It’s actually pretty easy to find the truth if you want to know what it is. There is lots of free information out there collected by folks who know what they are doing and if you are willing to read rather than just make shit up because you can, you too can do something besides spread B.S.

  • I’m surprised they haven’t made a movie about Julie’s butterfly in the tree .julie Roberts for the title roll lol

  • There is absolutely no doubt now that the majority of Americans want to completely legalize marijuana nationwide. Our numbers grow on a daily basis.

    The prohibitionist view on marijuana is the viewpoint of a minority and rapidly shrinking percentage of regressive, backwards thinking Americans. It is based upon decades of lies and propaganda that the peabrain right winger soaks up like a sponge.

    Each and every tired old lie you scared and arrogants have propagated has been thoroughly proven false by both science and society.

    Your tired, STUPID, old rhetoric no longer holds any validity. The vast majority of Americans have seen through the sham of marijuana prohibition in this day and age. The number of prohibitionists left shrinks on a daily basis but there will always be some congenital peabrains who can’t break the cycle of STUPIDITY.

    With your credibility shattered, and your not so hidden agenda visible to a much wiser public, what’s left for a paranoid, scared marijuana prohibitionist to do? Troll pro-cannabis websites and make themselves look STUPID is something you are very good at.

    Maybe, just come to terms with the fact that marijuana legalization nationwide is an inevitable reality that’s approaching much sooner than prohibitionists think, and there is nothing YOU can do to stop it!

  • And yet, all of you marijuana supporters dodge the environmental question, you are a bunch of environmental and land rapists. Your beloved marijuana has caused so much crime in our beautiful county.

  • The insanity continue’s 😲

    • No offense, g-ma, but why put a freaking apostrophe in a pluralized word? Apostrophes show possession. Never use in a possessive pronoun (yours, his, etc.). simple. “continue’s” is not a word.

  • Marijuana this. Marijuana that. Marijuana this. Marijuana that. Give it a rest already, would ya?

  • I think h.d.b.c smokes a fatty every morning and decides how to be bizzar on this site for his personal entertainment. Most of his ridiculous comments actually make me laugh out loud . Keep it up you beautiful weirdo .
