    I just wanna know how much time and tax payers money the police wasted in this bust. U wanna do something worth while? Start busting the crack and oxy heads around james and temperance. 22 plants is not even worthy of news. How many violent pot heads do u know? They keep the pizza and other food industries going in Pictou County. Please legalize this so we can stop wasting tax payers money and make money off the taxes

    I cant beleive they spend all this time and money on 22 plants that will probaly have a 50 percent asurvival rate from huricanes animals people etc. How much tax dollars did it cost us, when the streets are now being flooded with meth and smiles and bath salts. I think there is more law enforcement def more narcs n C.I s then people. It estimated 90 percent of the informants on the pay roll are fabricating false names or ex users n dealers to get the money to support there habbit. So is it really organized crime the way the system is set up.
