NASHVILLE , BARRY CO. - A pair of Michigan State Police troopers looking for a fugitive, come across over 100 marijuana plants at a home in eastern Barry County. Troopers Nate Horan and Drew Spencer went to a home on Gregg's Corner, outside of Nashville Tuesday morning.They did not find the fugitive they were looking for, but they did notice a strong smell of marijuana coming from the residence. They also saw several marijuana cuttings growing by the window.

One of the residents gave consent for the troopers to come inside, where they discovered a marijuana growing operation and 101 mature plants.

While the troopers were confiscating the plants, another resident, who had a marijuana caregiver card, arrived and took responsibility for the plants. Under Michigan's guidelines, the most plants a caregiver can legally have is 60. No one was arrested immediately. The case has been forwarded to the Barry County prosecutor's office for possible charges.

The fugitive was not located at the residents. State Police say that they discovered this was a prior residence, and the man they were looking for does not live there any more.

    Ending prohibition would greatly reduce, even almost eliminate, the market in illegal narcotics, cause a reduction in the number of users and addicts, greatly curtail drug related illness and deaths, reduce societal harm from problematic abusers, and bring about an enormous reduction in the presence and influence of organized crime. The people who use drugs are our own children, our brothers, our sisters, our parents, and our neighbors. By allowing all adults safe and controlled legal access to psychoactive substances, we will not only greatly reduce the dangers for both them and ourselves but also greatly minimize the possibility of 'peer-initiation' and sales to minors. If you sincerely believe that prohibition is a dangerous and counter-productive policy then you can stop helping to enforce it. You are entitled—required even—to act according to your conscience. * It only takes one juror to prevent a guilty verdict. * You are not lawfully required to disclose your voting intention before taking your seat on a jury. * You are also not required to give a reason to the other jurors on your position when voting. Simply state that you find the accused not guilty! * Jurors must understand that it is their opinion, their vote. If the Judge and the other jurors disapprove, too bad. There is no punishment for having a dissenting opinion. “It is not only [the juror's] right, but his duty … to find the verdict according to his own best understanding, judgment, and conscience, though in direct opposition to the direction of the court.” —John Adams We must create what we can no longer afford to wait for: PLEASE VOTE TO ACQUIT!

    Taxpayers are forced to pay $40 Billion a year for a prohibition that causes 10,000 brutal murders & 800,000 needless arrests every year, and which doesn't even stop CHILDREN from getting marijuana. After seventy years of prohibition, it's obvious that it causes FAR more harm than good and must END! Drug Dealers Don't Card, Supermarkets Do!!
