I thought this kind of stuff doesn’t happen in the happiest County in the world.

223 Oro is a nice place, at least from the outside.


I bet they blended in well with their neighbors?

In the big scheme of things, these are NOT YET legal for recreational or whatever drugs. I live where many tax dollars have been spent enforcing the removal of pot farms. Today with a stroke of a pen and a fee, a permit is granted. Big problems ahead….


Magical meth making a comeback. Coming soon to a neighborhood near you!


Another case of arrest, slap and release! Your has FOUR CHARGES OF VIOLATING PROBATING, meaning a repeater. What a waste!


Boy, you sure can’t judge a book by its cover! Just looking at their pictures, I would have guessed they were (left to right) a child psychologist, an MIT mathematician, a theoretical physicist and a celebrity stylist.


The dudes are locked up and charged with drug offenses. The ladies are no longer in custody and charged with nil.
