(SEATTLE, WA) -- Used judiciously and with some restraint, it was enough dope to keep the average stoner high into the next century.
But now all those fabulous future highs of fits and giggles are gone forever thanks to a coordinated, time-tested police action you could call Weed-Be-Gone.
Seattle police seized more than 3,000 marijuana plants, 60 pounds of processed weed, firearms (e.g., heaters, Roscoes and boomsticks) and vehicles after serving warrants at 14 illegal grow houses in Renton, Seattle and Federal Way Wednesday morning.
In addition, SPD Narco detectives busted 15 people in connection with the grow operations, "Which are believed to be linked. Detectives do not currently believe any of the houses are tied to Washington’s legal marijuana growing industry," said an SPD statement.
Because of the sheer size of the grow operation, Seattle police were assisted by the FBI, DEA, HSI, and King County Sheriff’s Office in serving the warrants.
That's a humpload of badges descending upon unsuspecting alleged socially misbehaving miscreants.
We'd bet a dollar and a donut that when all those badges and guns (dressed in scary looking SWAT gear and packing AR-15's with red lasers) started busting down doors in the wee morning hours and screaming things like, "Get on the f***in' ground now!" (figuratively speaking) it scared the bejeezus out of more than a few of them.
It should be noted that such fear and shock & awe tactics - designed to surprise and confuse alleged miscreants into instant submission - are, more often than not, quite successful ergo their continued use against the criminal elements in American society.
Detectives continue to process evidence related to the case. The 15 suspects were booked into the King County Jail for charges related to drug manufacturing.
Let this be a lesson kids: crime does not pay. You keep doing crime and sooner or later you'll become intimately acquainted with the unmistakable taste, smell and texture of prison food, toilets with no plastic seats on them, one-ply toilet paper (somewhat like sandpaper) and a few other even more unpleasant experiences often associated with American prison life.
If you know what we mean.
