HURON

A UPS shipment of 35 pounds of marijuana, with an approximate street value of $35,000, landed a Lorain man in the Erie County jail.   Joe Rowser, 41, was arrested Saturday morning by Erie County Sheriff’s deputies at a hotel in Huron after he picked up a box— tightly packed with the drug.    Read more about this blunder in Tuesday’s Register.

 He should also be charged with being stupid.  

Taxpayer

I think someone is over estimating the cost.  $1,000 per pound for seeds and stems???  I don't think so.  Nothing like going into criminal enterprise to make money.  So this pillar of society PAID for his product and now he is in the lock up and LE confiscated everything??  He faces both federal and state charges??  "Duh, I guess I'z be needs a public defender."  Isn't it amazing how liberals love to spend the money from everyone else?  So we also pay for his jail time, his trial and then his time in prison??  My question to all you crybaby liberals is when do the taxpayers get a break?  When do we get justice for all??  Oops, I forgot, it is not the welfare and liberal way.  It is taxpayer money and welfare for all that do not work.  Ha! Ha!

I checked on some web sites..apparently 1000.00 is "low ball" price!!!  OMG!!  I am in the WRONG business!!  My garden grows all KINDS of WEEDS!! The gov't. needs to LEGALIZE this and start making some $$$$!!  It will stop the "Cartels" dead in their tracks, too!!

OH!! And if you find out who packed ALL that in a 24x`12x18 BOX...let me know!!  I can use them to help me pack stuff away in the attic!!!  : )

Maybe he took the UPS commercial to heart to much? "What can brown do for you?" Maybe he can get the same lawyer that the Cocobeano's have to sue UPS for his stupidity!
