  1. News flash weed is legal in California. How about getting the heroin off street?

  2. Keith Dill Keith Dill says:

    Awesometown. Who cares about weed? Heroin is the real problem!!

  3. Oh no it’s the devils lettuce 😱

  4. Our Sheriff’s Department works really hard to get drugs of any sort off our streets! Hooray for this bust!

  5. Bruce Lott Bruce Lott says:

    oh my god who cares

  6. Go bust a meth house you cowards.

  7. Weed is legal assholes get heroin and meth off the streets.

  8. Roy Gosen Roy Gosen says:

    But it’s ok for them to sell it legally and over price make the weed all clones. They can steal while the person who’s trying to get buy is a criminal

  9. Bill Reynolds says:

    Thank you law enforcement for a great job. Talk to any deputy sheriff or police officer and you will learn that marijuana is a gateway to harder drugs. Legalizing marijuana makes zero sense.

    • Stephen C Dudley says:

      Good one, Robert Karppinen! Someone should remind them, pot is legal, too. Just need a license to sell

  10. Stephen C Dudley says:

    I guess if they were selling beer on the roadside that would be against the law, too.
    Work on getting the opioids off the streets. Pot is harmless

  11. Stephen C Dudley says:

    Good one, Robert Karppinen! Someone should remind them, pot is legal, too. Just need a license to sell

  12. David Green David Green says:

    Isn’t this an illegal arrest? I didn’t read ATF or Federal Officers anywhere. Marijuana is legal to posses in California. How can this arrest be legal (haven’t googled it yet)

  13. its legal now , but there is a limit u can have on u , but still , leave the pot heads alone

  14. So Cal Guy says:

    A lot of the people are on this site stating “Weed is legal in California”. This is partially true with regards to the limits on what you are permitted to possess and grow. This article was about two dudes who were driving around with 6 pounds (not ounces) and $6000.00 in cash, not $600.00. It is clear that these two dueche bags were not following the new laws which limits the amount you are permitted to have on your person. They were clearly illegal dealers and LASD did exactly what they should have done.
    LASD does not turn a blind eye to the heroin problem here in the SCV, it is also addressed, and they (LASD) are doing everything they can to address the problem.
    Those of you getting so defensive about pot / weed evidently need to take a puff and relax.
    BTW…All the “revenue” that these cities are supposedly making where pot is sold legally is horse crap!!! The number of people who use a small store front business as a “front” and sell weed illegally behind back doors and downstairs to avoid paying the taxes (aka revenue) seriously out number those who are trying to do it legally.

    • Jenette Zipp says:

      God i can least say after reading all the comments on this story that for one, nice to see more open minded people and that can acknowledge what drugs should be taken more seriously. Its weed people please get over it already. And secondly..i never comment on anything unless i feel its necessary given how “awesome” people can be in good ol “awesometown” ..now valencians whos minds are so closed off its disgusting..weed or anything that alters a persons mind can be a gateway drug. Marijuana has been proven multiple times the many positive benefits it has for many reasons. Gateway drug now i just dont see it that way exactly. The problem is hardcore drugs. That comment about the methadone clinic and tax payers funding it..well its better it be controlled and a person have a chance to live and recover than to die in thw streets from an od. I personally have never used heroin ever but i have many friends who have and still do. Methadone can save a persons life. Its not the solution but watching anyone withdrawal from heroin is i can only imagine horrible to put it mildly. Before you speak on what i assume a lot of you closed minded people think they know what theyre talking about but you dont have the slightest clue . I could go on all day on this but typing on my cell phone is not my cup of tea. Felt my two cents needed to be said. To the open minded ones thank you period. World needs more open mindedness .
