Dallas' Marijuana Supply Got 1,200 Pounds Lighter Over the Weekend

Categories: Crime

On Saturday morning, a Dallas Police Department helicopter was on routine patrol over South southern Dallas when officers spotted what appeared to be marijuana growing inside a deeply wooded area off the 1500 block of Wood Vista Court, just north of the intersection of C.F. Hawn Freeway and Lake June Road.

Narcotics officers on the ground discovered a total of four marijuana fields with plants ranging from six inches to eight feet tall. They counted the plants (exactly 2,323), weighed them (550.430 kilograms), and took them to DPD's property room where police encourage their rightful owner to claim them at his or her convenience.

I bet nobody even notice the shortage... Fuck you police. Legalize it and those police could have been preventing a person from breaking in a house, busting a meth lab, helping the homeless, keeping ppl from selling crack, or something actually helpful. What a waste of tax payer's money... At least these plants won't be killing anybody... Wait, they don't do that anyways... Lol.

And here I thought Dallas was proud to finally be "going green".  I wonder if the stuff was certified organically grown.

Funny thing is I was leaving practice at our rehearsal room on Saturday, and the Police I guess it's the TBA they had the street blocked where I needed to leave, I looked over to my right cause the Police Detective was flagging me to take the alley way I rolled down the window and was about to say what's going on - I looked to my right and then saw two friggen TRUCKS full of dug up WEED! I was like HOLY SHIT! Then I said to the officer, I guess you guys found some Weed! He was like yep!  Seriously I have never seen so much grass..  It was a site!

1,200 pounds.  Over half a ton.  At the end of the distribution line,  sold by the ounce.  And that's just one field.

 

The system that moves this much to the final user has to rival Wal-Mart.  It then has to move the money back up the chain.

 

Do you believe for a second that all this is being organized and orchestrated by banditos from Mexico?   That,  at a minimum,  hundreds aren't required?  Hundreds who Sr. management can vouch for?   I mean,   do you need a Resume or are personal references sufficient?   Does the Company require a drug test?

...and furthermore - where the hell is Wood Vista Court really located?..or is Google conspiring to hide the real information from us?  Google Maps doesn't have a record of any Wood Vista Court in Dallas and when I checked their map, there isn't any such street close to the Hawn:Lake June intersection...come on Eric...focus for the people or is this just a simple mistake....

So; if I grow five or ten plants on my front yard and nobody notices until some of them get eight feet tall and then DPD comes and pulls it up...is that the end of the story???...I don't go to jail or pay a fine?...or was the open field actually public land...owned by no individual???...are any pieces missing in this puzzle?...

I feel so much safer now knowing that these reefer plants won't be breaking into my house,stealing my truck or plundering our financial institutions.

Can't any old white guy grow some primo O.G. Kush in South Dallas for fun and profit just like any 'normal' powdery Park Cities Republican cawk without everybody getting their thongs entangled and their Mercedes parked improperly???

 

Just give me back my Chiba and I promise to sell it ONLY in Democratic states. They pay better anyway.

Assholes. Go find real criminals and stop making felons out of plant owners.

Absurd republicans.  They keep marijuana illegal, then run around screaming about big government this, and government all gettin' in your business that.  Such hypocrites.

1,200 lbs lighter?  Hardly.  LEO's estimates are always ridiculous.  I'm not an expert, but even I know you only smoke the bud...and that's weighed after the plant is dried. An ounce a plant maybe?  (I have no idea)

first off, this is a gross overstatement of the weight.  550.43 kilograms is of total weight.  This includes the roots, leaves and stems i'm guessing.  The police need to offer up the actual usable material (buds only) to make this number mean anything. More importantly, anyone who has ever shot up marijuana knows that you don't boil the stems in the spoon before you spike your veins to do marijuana.

A little over a mile from the Southeast DPD substation.  I'm sure they flew past three dead bodies and 14 stolen cars on the way to this oh-so-important pot bust.

You potheads can rest assured someone is getting killed over this.

That sucks, they need to focus on real criminals. What a waste

I wonder if they have found the people who stole my pickup truck and tools?

 

The most threatening thing I have ever seen a pothead do is to take a long time to order at Denny's.

"Dallas' Marijuana Supply Got 1,200 Pounds Lighter Over the Weekend" and not a single pothead noticed unless he read about this incident in the news.

 @RTGolden If it was at first it wasn't after the aerial spraying this week.

 @Myrna.Minkoff-Katz You realize that the mayor and the majority of the city council are Democrats, right?  If they wanted the police to lay off prohibition enforcement, they could do it.

 @Dallasphotog about 1-4 ounes a plant depending on the strain and if it's bushy or just one cola. Then with them being so tall, the stalk was prob most of the weight. So it def wasn't that much in weight.

 @timetomoveon well hopefully it will be the coward who murdered a man in cold blood in this neighborhood 2 weeks ago.Whether he ratted them out or just brought extra attn to the area,maybe he will bear the cross

I do like how the DPD has assumed that this is not a "gang activity crime".  That must be one industrious farmer who started this little plantation ... oh and I am certain that it is all for personal consumption ....

 @RTGolden  @missedpiece If you look on googleearth or mapquest, there is a car trail to the north and what looks like a clearing in the woods.  There are other possible clearings in the woods around the antenna farm.

 @MyrnaIsATroll  Nah, I looked at its other posts.  It's got some that are mainline left of center posts with no trolling in them.  I'm pretty sure its an authentic North Texas Barking Moonbat.

 @gburp  @Myrna.Minkoff-Katz  @everlastingphelps "Myrna" IS NOT A LIBERAL!!! 'She' is a "parody troll" created by a right-winger, meant to mock the over-the-top "loony liberal" stereotypes that right-wing conservatives have of liberals.  All posts by "Myrna" are meant to make liberals look stupid.  Pay no attention to "her".

 @Myrna.Minkoff-Katz You are absolutely right.  Republicans are greedy, racist warmongers who love to see people get sick and die.  Democrats, on the other hand, are communist, homosexual perverts who masturbate to pictures of aborted fetuses and try to keep terrorists, rapists and child molesters out of jail.

 

If you're going to believe the vicious smears, then believe all of them.

 @Myrna.Minkoff-Katz Then I will likewise refer you to 2009-2011, when the Democrat Party had complete control over the legislative and executive branches, and could have passed or repealed any law they wanted to -- and instead of ending prohibition, they decided to give graft to "green" campaign bundlers and shove Obamacare down the country's throat.

@GuitarPlayer yep actually $3.56 in taxes here in Texas, a lot more in IL and NY and CA.
