In an elaborate undercover operation, authorities in Ohio seized nearly $4 million in marijuana shipped from medical dispensaries in California, Colorado, and Oregon.

 

Along with the leaf itself, candies, drinks and brownies laced with the potent drug were also part of the haul. According to the reports of several outlets, the Warren County Drug Task Force, Ohio State Highway Patrol and other officials worked in tandem across three Ohio counties to shut down the shipment of edible pot and weed.

 

Warren, Montgomery and Drake counties were the areas the operation took place, taking down Bradley O'Neal, 26, and Casey Oakes, 27, with several other indictments to come.

 

O'Neal and Oakes purchased 100 pounds of marijuana for $180,000 in Warren County from undercover officers, resulting in cops establishing six search warrants across Montgomery and Drake counties. Each pound has a street value close to $5,000, said task force Commander John J. Burke.

 

The bust yielded an array of edible marijuana-laced items such as brownies, candies and drinks. Ohio has been dealing with an uptick in these manner of busts for the past year, which seems to have a connection with medical marijuana centers found on the West Coast.

 

Also on the national radar recently was the U.S. Customs and Border Protection's seizure last week of a truck that was supposed to be carrying Mexican

 

squash into lower Texas but instead was hiding pounds of marijuana with a street value of $10.1 million. The Warren County Drug Task Force press release can be read here. - See more at: http://hiphopwired.com/2013/11/26/ohio-cops-3-million-marijuana-bust/#sthash.cthVl2Tp.dpuf

My question also. This article makes no sense. The article appears to be political in nature. It is a"ha ha we told you so" story from the uninformed prohibitionist idiots. I imagine that there are plenty of Ohioans who are more than happy that they can have access to quality cannabis.

In the police press release it says:   " This operation began yesterday with the undercover purchase of 100 pounds of marijuana for $180,000 in Warren County, and the immediate 

service of six search warrants in Montgomery and Drake counties in Ohio. "
 
 
shrewed buyers to pick up 100#s of MedCan for 180,000 ? + medibles!

 maybe some believe that cannabis freedom may actually affect the heroin demand in the most profitable countries?  we would have to look at the few organizations most affected at the bottom line to begin to view the power of commercialization and prohibition efforts. Who but these would fight the hardest, with the most money & stock holder support.  For example, here we are using our most powerful voting tool, our cash, to support the efforts of the very few entities that are working the hardest against our freedoms.   These entities would not exist without our daily use of their investment opportunities, products and services. We not only use their production, but we give them more money to  operate, in hopes they give some back !  To suggest they stop their most profitable efforts, or lessen the burden they place on us is whimsical folly.

we must take responsibility for these actions at some point, during the repetition of events, to avoid further repetition of events.
