    Looks like a lot of their stuff is what would be considered medical marijuana or THC edibles.

      Somehow the weed being in the house puts the kids in danger, you know how it’s ok to have all the whiskey wine and beer you want in the same house with your children, because alcohol is shown to destroy lives and is socially acceptable to the Christian Masse’s. Pot which has never cause any deaths is somehow putting the devil in or corrupting or poisoning the youth just by being in proximity. Didn’t you attend dare? Pot bad Budweiser COOL. GOTTA LOVE IT. in a state with a methamphetamine crisis and a herpin crisis on the way out Noble law enforcement are out busting potheads and taking children away from their parent’s. Real good guy, cops. Just taking orders like a bunch of friggin Nazis.

        Ok, it appears you must be an avid burner, based on your defense of marijuana and that’s fine as I have no qualms about it either.

        What I didn’t see in the article is where it mentions any children being involved, whether there were any in the 1214 Jackson Avenue residence.

    Hell ya ruon lives and tear a family apart for something that’s legal in half the country, meanwhile I’m sure spirit lakes meth heads and illegal immigrants feel safe now with the evil pot guy locked up. This is not justice. These people harmed nobody. This craps got to stop. Leo need to be worrying about domestic abuse and drugs maybe assault and murder or drunk driving. What a waste of time and money. The cops who participated really need to think about it and stop upholding laws that aren’t important at all. Dumb.
