Do Police even bother trying to bust small grow ops anymore?

    Like I said good luck with that. They will sometimes determine that you are able bodied and able to work and that you can hire an attorney. They will keep you in jail until you fulfill the required paper work. Been there and done that and they can and will do what ever they please. Not all counties are quite that bad, but some are. I thought the same as you and I thought wrong.

    I read this article myself. I wonder if maybe they were being checked out for other reasons or if it was just dumb luck to fnd 2 plants while flying in a helicopter. I know its hard to spot people from helicopters, forget about 2 little green plants among other green plants in a garden.

    I was recently buying from a guy who got busted; he told me his biggest problem was the sawed off shotgun they found in his apartment...I was like, "why the eff am I dealing with a person who owns a sawed-off shotgun???" It then dawned on me that you just don't know WHO you are dealing with most of the time, and then my personal safety became a question. So I decided to grow. I hate thinking that I am taking a bigger legal risk this way, with my peaceful endeavor. but it is true, I open up the whole "cultivation and distribution" door now, instead of just possession - even though I don't sell and I don't share either. The only people I know here who smoke pot are the people who sell it and they aren't getting any freebies here!

    that's it right there. most of the people i know who have been busted were busted by accident and were busted way harder for other shit that was found besides weed like guns and money. i know a dealer who just got fucked because him and his roomate beat the shit out of two robbers that broke in their house and a robber's gun went off. if the cops didn't need to go in there to find the bullet they would have got off scot free. they found some shake and got a warrant and dude got busted for his "home security". no weight was found.

    Well if you haven't been busted yet then keep quite and don't worry. No matter what state you're in you still have a little to worry about.

    Unfortunately this is not true. It is in the best interest of all LEO, DEA etc. to seize all plants regardless of size, maturity or sex. I recently saw a local outdoor bust with over 450 plants taken. The local news media shot video of the plants up close. The grow was poorly planned and included some of the worst looking "schwag" I've ever seen. Females covered in seeds, some of which were clearly planted too late to get even close to maturity, popcorn buds covered in spider mite damage due to the hot summer, abundant numbers of males (local "barney was proudly holding one) you name it..this was one fucked up grow. The media said the street value was close to $4 million. Hyping a bust to keep the money flowing goes way back with these people.
