THIS JUST IN: 2.2 Tons of even better Meth just crossed the Mendo border and will be here soon.

Good luck with your drug war though I do believe you’re winning.

Though not sure who you’re actually beating other than those on the street already beaten half to death.

The Oxycontin family made the Forbes 500.

Kudos.

We need to promote hope and a sober future to addicts, stigmatizing them isn’t the way to go. Just remember addicts DON’T want to be addicts, everyone reading this knows someone who has suffered. To anyone out there suffering reach out, help awaits. I pray for you to find strength to conquer the demons.

OH and this dude Slade or Slave or whatever, he raced by me the other night down by Leggett, in his stupid Hyundai, prior to being pulled. When I caught up, he was standing by the CHP vehicle, looking VERY nervous… Nice catch CHP!

SO if you are going to transport – drive in cruise control, be sober, and maybe get a more “Humboldt-looking” vehicle – One of those nice piece of shit hippie Subaru wagons the girls all love, or maybe a Prius. Yeah… A nice “Namaste” sticker…

I hope a few tweakers are in withdrawal tonight… But I doubt they will suffer for long. Meth is the real “drug industry” of Humboldt!

Yes, almost like they were ready for him. Or speeding/changing lanes in a not-so-safe manner? A 2016 vehicle of Asian persuasion shouldn’t have anything wrong with it. Now a Chevy or Beamer, maybe so..

The first paragraph says they already had a search warrant. As in, they already had good information that he would be passing though and would be possessing something illegal.

How will the dope growers stay awake with the coming moons, blind firing at every little noise, turning on each other, living a paranoid existence of their crime ridden lives that has completely destroyed The Triangle?

What will those dope growers do now?

Laughing at you dope growers as you turn on each other, poisoning and stealing your plant of peace crops.

The next month’s you’ll be showing us all what evil souls you are.

I hope every weed plant dies from a blight and each and everyone of you are foreclosed on and move to wherever it is that enjoys your antics.

Get out and go back to your slums!

I know it’s wrong to judge but he sure has a lot of sketchy looking authors in his library. That gangsta look with the flat brimmed ball cap just doesn’t give me a warm fuzzy feeling. Her? She’s beautiful, has beautiful kids and grandkids. I really feel sorry for them knowing what Mumsie is up to late at night. Very sad.

This Rollingstone article sheds some light on why that might be
“Asked about a certain current head-of-state whose drug of choice is said to be Diet Coke and whose personal doctor recently admitted to regularly administering hair-loss prevention drugs, Ohler says, “Everyone’s drawing these comparisons between Hitler and Donald Trump.” But he compares the new American leader to Hiter’s drug of choice, instead. “These former industrial zones in the so-called Meth Belt are now broken-down areas where underprivileged white people live, who support Trump and who take a lot of meth and depend on that anticipation that meth creates. You take meth, you think something’s gonna happen, something exciting. That’s the kind of energy that Trump creates. People get excited and I think that cheap excitement, that fake hope that meth creates is also something that Trump creates. I think Trump is a kind of a personified meth…..” http://www.rollingstone.com/culture/hitler-nazis-secret-oxycodone-and-methamphetamine-addiction-w472234

Holy moly that’s a lot! Good job law enforcement! Now if we could only keep people like that in jail instead of bouncing them out to go get more awful life taking drugs and bring them into our community, that’d be awesome! Betting he’s out already, using his meth money to buy some douchy lawyer to keep him out of jail so he can re-up and finish destroying our community with his awful drug. Meanwhile, another mom and pop grower is still dealing with that 12 plant felony from a couple years back…

Man… Frank was doing really good for a while. I went to rehab with him. I’m sure he was still on probation which would explain why they already had a search warrant. That really sucks that he went back down that path. Not many of us left from that group that graduated the program around that time that are still clean:(
