Pot bigger than cherries in WA state
As usual, I think they're over-valuing the haul. It's been a long time since I've seen an actual plant but I haven't seen a picture of one that looked like it would yield almost a pound of saleable buds. Maybe they value at the wet weight and include the stalks. Nonetheless, it's interesting that just what they confiscated represents the 8th most valuable agricultural commodity in Washington state, edging out their famous cherry crop.
For non-consumers who wonder what benefit legalization would be to them, think tax revenues. Think law enforcement hours spent on crime instead of plant patrol. Think spin-off industries that create jobs. Then think about legalizing again.
