    $12 million? I think the Sheriff’s been smokin’ the product.
    Must be calculating it at dispensary prices — $25 a gram.

    Off to Colorado to help fund our local law enforcement budget. Probably a better return than bicycles or confsicated vehicles. “Raid in Calfornia”

    ooh, ahhh, 4,000 plants. 12 million dollars. $3,000 per plant. Scary. Everyone hide under the covers.

    Legalize it and 4,000 plants would be worth about $4,000 ($1 a plant wholesale). Same as a corn plant or a sunflower plant.
