Composting Marijuana

bud from an orange crush cannabis plantImage via WikipediaAn Iowa City man was charged with possession with intent to sell when police arrested him with a large amount of marijuana.

First it was a retired UK man who was storing his heroin in his compost bin and now this guy claiming he was going to compost several gallon bags full of marijuana. Now it's a good guess that pot is a green and would get a compost pile cooking pretty well but these guys are giving us composters a bad name.

    You have to tell the cops something when you're being ruined over laws that have accomplished NOTHING except HARM. How many more lives have to be devastated or lost before we wise up? Prohibition has never worked and never will. From the place of origin to the point of sale there can be up to a 17000% markup in the illegal drug trade. We're building 900 new prison beds and hiring 150 more correction officers every two weeks in the USA. We arrest someone on a drug charge every 17 seconds. The "land of the free" now incarcerates more people than any other nation on earth. More than 1 of every 100 adult Americans is now behind bars. We spend $69 billion per year on the drug war. In 1914 when ALL drugs were LEGAL 1.3% of the American population was addicted to drugs. Despite prohibition, TODAY 1.3% of our population is STILL addicted to drugs. Over 100,000 Americans have lost their lives as a result of the war on drugs, which is really a war on our own citizens. We were smart enough to end alcohol prohibition after 13 years, the drug war has been going on almost 4 decades and drug prohibition to some degree for over 9 decades. The ONLY way to control drugs is to regulate them like alcohol and tobacco. That will END the profits available to criminals just like ending alcohol prohibition did. The year alcohol prohibition ended violent crime FELL 65%. There has only been one drug success story in history, tobacco, which is hands down the most deadly and one of the most addictive of all drugs. Almost half of all users quit because of REGULATION, ACCURATE INFORMATION and MEDICAL TREATMENT, NOT A WAR ON TOBACCO USERS. NO ONE WENT TO JAIL AND NO ONE GOT KILLED. Contact your elected representatives every time there's legislation on the table regarding illegal drugs and tell them to end the drug war. Not one of the ridiculous arguments justify devastating society with PROHIBITION AND A WAR. Watch the video:

    Hello Anonymous,
    Whoa, slow down there. This is a gardening blog. I appreciate that you took the time to voice your opinion and that's why I posted it but I'm here to talk about compost. :)

    I'm glad you posted anon's comment, very interesting points. Heh, I wonder if that guy's composter has been raided by would-be pot hunters since that incident? Sure it was just an excuse, but a stoner might buy it! (Depending on how many brain cells they had to begin with, of course! :)
