    Not a big deal really. Drug dealers busted in Mammoth with the same things only get 6 mos in county jail. Not an effective deterrent…

    Looks like another of those “unusual” arrests when marijuana users and dealers are ALSO (allegedly) dealing the other harder drugs too….That seems like a heck of a smorgasboard of dope they found in that vehicle !!

      Perhaps its time to study how society came to grips and dealt with prohibition (1920 – 1933.)

      In our day, I repeat, our day, there were a lot more drugs going around and people called it partying. There was no war on drug /youth and if you were polite to the police they usually treated you as a normal human. Now they ruin your life and put your picture on the front page of the local gossip machine for a joint. Then they say ” see what drugs can do to you”. Am I wrong?

      I don’t like people doing hard drugs or drinking to much, but our gov’t has no right to declare war on the people suffering the most.
