    Still illegal…

    The article stated that they recovered other drug paraphernalia and a gun. Why do you always have guns with illegal drug trade. Get the crack dealers as well.

    the gun could have been simply for home defense as pot smokers are not violent unless they are hi on somethin else as well and wanna steal weed as somethin easier to get at the time

    Two plants PLUS weed already packaged. The plants could have been some kind of employee of the month prize. The article does not state the amount of marijuana that was actually seized.

    Nobody cares about marijuana. How about Trussville PD stop wasting your time and tax dollars on a war on a PLANT that heals and has ZERO history of EVER causing harm. Especially when there is such an obvious opioid epidemic that IS causing harm & casualties in the community. Ridiculous.

    Kathy Sills do you know why it’s illegal? Did you know it’s also illegal to collect rainwater? There are laws set in place solely to profit government that do no harm to people or their communities. Collecting rain water is one of them and marijuana is another.

    Omg!! What a major drug bust! 2 whole pot plants that I’m sure were for personal use and not to distribute! Trussville pd must be very proud of their BIG accomplishment! It sure seems like it in the pic with the dog… So glad we have you guys to keep us save. Keep up the good work

    If there is more to the story maybe they should put it in there before publishing the story and getting people all fired up.

    If pot was legal violent crime would go down. But our states overly conservative views refuse to look to the other legalized states and recognize its benefits. Not one negative has come from the states that have legalized. Crime has gone down. Opioid overdose cases have drastically decreased. Taxation on marijuana has made these states record amounts of money that they are using to house homeless. Build schools, roads etc. Not to mention the medical benefits. The list of positive effects of legalization goes on and on.

    Please leave the weed alone. Real drugs kill. Weed has not killed anyone. It should be treated as the medical item that it is. Alabama needs to move with the times. If Alabama legalized weed the amount of taxes could help our schools and pave our roads. This is nonsense. Have you guys not got bigger fish to catch? I am sure there are worse things going on in the world to check on.

    I agree with marijuana arrests. I’m not sure why people have a hard time avoiding illegal drugs. My dog is more obedient that many adults it seems.

  84. 111

    Josh Burgans

    That’s like saying murders still occur so what’s the point of continuing to try to stop murders.

  85. 112

    Josh Nichols

    Being arrested and given a criminal record on something the government has a patent on (US6630507) is asinine.

  86. 113

    Josh Burgans

    Because you can’t focus on multiple things at once? I’m sure if the TPD got a tip on a meth lab, they’d raid it too.

    That is what I call Stepford town! They thibk it is all so perfect! Give me a break…when I went to school there they had drug busts in Jr High! They just cover it up or somebody’s daddy with deep pockets probably pays someone off to keep it hush hush!! What a joke!!

  88. 115

    Josh Burgans

    Smoking weed has almost no medical benefit. In fact marijuana smoke has many of the same carcinogens that tobacco smoke has, most in higher concentration since marijuana is usually smoked without any filter. If you want to fight for actual medicine based on cannabinoid extracts, that is one thing, but saying people should be able to smoke weed for medical purposes is pretty much baseless.

  89. 117

    Valerie Cole Woodall

    Marijuana is still illegal I believe because they woukd lose out on the money they get for fines and court fees from busting people! It grows out of the ground! Why not make alcohol and cigerettes illegal…they are known killers!!

  90. 118

    Josh Burgans

    Marijuana is a schedule one drug at the federal level and thus illegal. So how is it legal in America? It may be legal in some states, but federal law trumps state and local laws.

  91. 119

    Sarah Beth Shubert

    Rusty Welch spill the beans Rusty!

  92. 120

    Matthew Richardson

    Valerie Cole Woodall the state and local municipalities would generate more in taxes by legalizing mj than they do from arrests and fines. When you add up man hours, housing, feeding etc more money is wasted than is generated for an mj arrest/conviction. Colorado is a prime example of the positive economic affects from legalization. Tax revenue has increased greatly and crime has dropped noticeably.

  93. 121

    Josh Burgans

    Valerie Cole Woodall I think enforcement of drug laws creates a net loss. As for growing out of the ground, how is that relevant to anything?

  94. 122

    Susanna Renee

    You must be against Mary Jane right? Point is there’s more serious things going on all around then weed plants! They wanna do something good for the community stop the other things, get these people behind bars who are killing innocent kids and people, get the ones dealing deadly drugs! You know why this story isn’t important my aunt was killed by a driver under the influence of drugs not weed! Do you know she isn’t behind bars yet after almost two years??? But this woman who has plants ((she was not caught smoking keep in mind)) but shes behind bars?? The people who take the lives of others should be behind those bars not people who have freaking plants in their home/possession

  95. 123

    Seth Austin

    Woah way to go Trussville pd!! You ruined someone’s life for possessing a harmless plant. Meanwhile alcohol kills people every day but we’re all so excited for the craft beer joint coming to Trussville right?? What a joke

  96. 124

    Robert Empresario Bates

    So why haven’t the government sent agents to Colorado to arrest have the state? The real so called war on drugs was a tactic to keep control over paper mills because one candidate wanted to introduce hemp to the country because hemp was cheaper to manufacture and the 2% would have lost money if that control was taken over.

  97. 125

    Zephaniah El Getachew Yehudah

    TPD could have just destroyed them lil plants an let her go

  98. 126

    Robert Empresario Bates

    Let’s outlaw alcohol because it kills millions of innocent people every year due to drunk driving. Yet we are encouraged to drink and celebrate drinking as a pastime for many. Turn 21 go drink! Then elected to drive home without incident from Police. Weed just kills the snack aisle at WalMart.

  102. 131

    Dean Bradford

    Under federal law, it is illegal to possess, use, buy, sell, or cultivate marijuana, since the Controlled Substances Act of 1970 classifies marijuana as a Schedule I drug, claiming it has a high potential for abuse and has no acceptable medical use. Since Alabama has no “exemption” for medical or recreational use, she broke the law!

  103. 132

    Susan Michelle

    It does not say she was charged with illegal possession of a handgun, so why even print they found one? What difference does it make?

    What I see here is that you seem to equate Marijuana to Cigarettes. So why is it OK for Cigarettes to be sold at every gas station in America but not Marijuana? Cigarette smoking has been proven to cause cancer and many other medical conditions. Weed. Not so much. Science has proven that Marijuana helps with epilepsy as well as anxiety.

    Hillary Jones

    Josh Burgans I didn’t see where Michelle mentioned smoking in particular, did her original comment get edited? As I’m sure you know, there are numerous other ways of introducing THC/CBDs into the human body besides smoking. There are also ways of smoking that are less toxic than others, for instance, taking a butane lighter out of the equation (as how cigarettes are lit) would certainly cut down on carcinogen exposure from inhalation. As for current medical use, beyond the recent findings of CBD (which is not THC) helping with seizures, Marinol has been pharmaceutically produced for over a decade to help with weight gain / appetite stimulant treatment for those with cancer in addition to other medically related treatment uses. When I worked as a PharmTech over a decade ago, Marinol came in the form of a capsule.

  115. 146

    Hillary Jones

    Rusty Welch I think the reason there was a warrant issued from St Clair is because Carrington may fall within St Clair and Jefferson County lines. The very back part of the Neighborhood was a few years ago, and may still be (although I think this was brought before the Board in recent years) zoned for Springville schools despite a Trussville address. So I think the multiple county warrant has more to do with zoning than anything else.

  116. 147
  117. 148

    Rusty Welch

    Kathy Sills I’m not sure what you mean lol

  118. 149

    Rusty Welch

    I didn’t know that. I thought the county line was closer to Springville? I could be wrong but I’m not familiar with where the county line start and end.

  119. 150

    Hillary Jones

    It seems that the idea of a gun makes drug busts that much more scandalous, when we all know that over half the population has a gun in their home (whether they are committing other crimes or not). Should the kitchen steak knives be mentioned too? To me, it falls under that same mentality, and I think your original comment leans that way as well. The possession of a firearm, whether legal or not, does increase the severity of a crime and bond if the crime that is committed is a felony or the person being charged has a previous criminal history, so that also may be why such extra weight is placed on mentioning a gun in a story about a crime being committed even though the gun wasn’t specifically involved in the crime being committed.

  120. 151

    Rusty Welch

    I doubt 2 pot plants will pay a house note in Carrington 😂😂

  121. 152

    Hillary Jones

    Rusty Welch I’m not knowledgeable about the exact part of the County line either, but I do know that a few years ago several of the homes in the back part of Carrington were zoned for Springville schools despite Carrington being predominantly zoned for Trussville schools, so that’s what made me think that perhaps the warrant from St Clair County had more to do with zoning.

  122. 153

    Rusty Welch

    That makes sense I never knew that. Learn something new every day. That would be a long drive to school of the kids went to Springville and lived in Carrington

    This is absolutely ridiculous. Marijuana charges have to be the most idiotic thing you can be arrested for. Unless she was endangering a child by having the pot around, she shouldn’t have been arrested.

    Marijuana possession! LOL Let’s start actually putting real felons in jail!! I can’t believe owning a plant is illegal!!

    Oh no! A woman had pot plants, meanwhile your priest is raping your kids, your senator is robbing you blind to pay for his 5th house and 12th car, your police are killing you in the streets and getting away with it. But thank our imaginary jackass of a skydaddy this woman is behind bars. SMDH

    If in anyone in 2017 thinks spending billions of dollars a year fighting the “war” on marijuana, locking up non violent offenders on the tax payers dime and clogging up the court systems is a good idea, then they’re insane. The state’s that have legalized are reaping the financial benefits and bringing thousands of jobs to their states. Prohibition does not work. Period

    How is that the same thing josh. Prohibition hasn’t worked. The war on drugs is an epic failure that has criminalized a health issue. Much like failed alcohol prohibition empowered organized crime, drug prohibition has empowered the cartels. But we are talking about marijuana here. No man or woman should lose their freedom over this. Ever.

    We just had a drive by shooting in our neighborhood at the local trap house the other night. Cops kinda drove by. But thank god that got this lady and her two plants.. Jesus

    You don’t make the money to own a home in Carrington Lakes by selling marijuana or any other drug for that matter. No one gets rich or even brakes even selling drugs except the big cartel leaders and government agents that get paid off to look the other way. Too much Miami vice and rap music has warped the truth about drug dealing and the money to be made off of it .

    Two marijuana plants? Two?

    Wow Josh Burgans you seem to know more than the medical industry. How interesting

    Haha!!! Look how pitiful those plants look

    I see some of you posting it’s only marijuana plants. Just remember it’s against the law.

  178. 220

    Amanda Williams

    God, mine too. Let this woman live! Wasn’t like she had bricks of it. It looks like she threw a few random seeds from her own in a pot to see if they’d grow.

    John Nichols

    You cannot legislate morality, no matter what you do.

  180. 222

    John Nichols

    So is feeding the hungry in some jurisdictions. Something being against the law does not mean it’s wrong necessarily. What is lawful and what is right are NOT the same thing.

    Joshua Graham Winn

    Let’s talk about this: police arresting a black woman in Carrington Lakes for some weed. Anyone else see a potential problem here? SWAT team for some pot plants? A little stereotypical police work here? Overkill much?

    Joshua Graham Winn

    It’s not overkill to send a swat team in to arrest a woman for marijuana? Are you insane?

  185. 231

    Joanna Miller Lucia

    I agree it was overkill with swat team.

  186. 232

    Joshua Graham Winn

    Contrary to what you think, pot is harmless, non addictive, and much less dangerous than alcohol or the prescription drug epidemic in this country. Let’s fight a real fight against prescription drugs and heroin. This is just silly. Waste of time, our money, our police force, the medias time for covering this. who else wasted time on this? It’s a joke this is a crime. A complete joke. Joanna – how many laws do you break daily?

  187. 233

    Joanna Miller Lucia

    And I am not insane Joshua Graham Winn.

    Unless your family has been affected by drug addiction you don’t have a clue

    It’s the Charlie Brown strain

    Having a cocktail and driving home is breaking the law as well but I assume you already knew that, Einstein. As we already knew what you stated.

    LaTrelle Grayson

    Pot is illegal. And all of you who point out benefits are forgetting that it is illegal. Did I point out that it is illegal? Great job TPD.

  192. 238

    Morgan Laine Turner

    Marijuana is not addictive though…

  193. 239

    Morgan Laine Turner

    Exactly. She could have got a warning but we treat marijuana the same as heroin. If she had like 20 Ibs I could see it being I bigger deal than two small plants.

  194. 240

    Joanna Miller Lucia

    Blah blah blah. All you people make me tried. You do not have a clue.

  195. 242

    Ross Jacobs

    I thought prohibition didn’t work the fist time and it caused more problems than it solved by creating high profit margins and dangerous incentives for organized crime.

    What’s different about prohibition 2.0 that somehow works?

  196. 243

    Matt Brownlee

    I busted out laughing when I saw the picture of the seized goods! It’s like saying we got a drop of rain out of the ocean. What a joke.

  197. 244

    Jenny Melville

    Nothing^^ because now we have synthetics that are killing people instead of the natural stuff curing people.

  198. 245

    Mack Kilpatrick

    Again. Like I said above. So is collecting rain water. Some laws are set into place solely for the benefit of the government.

  199. 246

    Morgan Laine Turner

    I believe I do considering I used to smoke. Weed is non addictive. Literally cigarettes are worse for you because the nicotine is habit forming.

  200. 247

    Morgan Laine Turner

    I could understand if it was coke, heroin, meth, etc but weed is far from needing this kind of police force. They could have destroyed the plants and given her a fine. No need to plug up the jails with minor criminal offenses. Driving drunk is far worse than what this lady did but its illegal so we sent a swat team even though we haven’t finished the park on Mainstreet since it got started back in 2010.

  201. 248

    John Nichols

    Feeding people that are hungry is illegal in some jurisdictions. What’s your point? Being illegal and being wrong are NOT THE SAME THING. Just like being legal and being right are NOT the same thing.
