    Sounds like madmike is in a little need of some dope himself. Dont blame the cops , city, tax dollars, or anything else for this nut getting busted.
    He broke the law, & got what he deserved.
    Normal people dont break into homes & steal checks just because they need their dope. Only dope heads do that.
    Keep up the good work MVPD… this is why mt. vernon isnt like cols. or cleveland…we dont put up w/ it, we lock em’ up.

    A waste of law enforcement energy. We are living in an unprogressive state.

    WOW Wonder how much money it took it take that amount of weed off the street ??? You have MetRich, MVPD, KCS, and Delaware K-9 . Now we the tax’s payer’s also have to house and feed this young man ,While he awaits in jail ,Then to have a public defender represent him in court.
    Now while on the streets,the lack of this weed ,Will drive up the price’s of what weed is left in town. Causeing those who smoke weed and can’t aford it to comit more crime such as B.& E., Robbery, Stealing of checks, ect..ect…
    Wouldn’t it be easyer to make it leagel, Stop all the worthless goverment spending on this so called ” War on Drug’s ” which the Fed’s and law enforcement CAN’T win.. Place a sale’s taxes on weed ,Make a little money, lower the crime rate, reduce the amount of people in prison’s ,Because of marijuana laws. Think of how much money that would save Joe tax payer.
    Just something to think about !!!C-YA

    Kudos to all of the agencies involved!! Now some lawyer will probably argue that kemp (that rhymes with hemp) has a BIG glaucoma issue.
