I think it's stupid that they weight the entire plant when giving an estimate of how much weed their is. It likely wasn't anywhere near 6 million dollars.

Josh Rosenthal sentenced to 36 months in jail - $6 Mil Marijuana Warehouse

Didn't see this posted but, I was kinda wtf'ed by it.

In my opinion he's one of the betters refs at the moment. Sad to see this

He hasn't been sentenced yet, that's just the government recommendation. It very well could be less, but I'd still expect for him to see some time for that much pot. I do find it kind of funny that they charge him with 'conspiracy to manufacture.' I mean, there is some package and handling, but you grow marijuana.

Anyways, it's too bad this wasn't Nick Diaz, he could have claimed personal use.

I don't think anyone can claim personal use of 1356 marijuana plants and get away with it.

I agree but when you are talking about a drug like weed people would still grow it and sell it under market price if it was legal. I don't find anything wrong with weed but to have that many plants your kinda asking to get caught eventually.

Idc about self usage but when you have 6 mil worth in a warehouse you are asking for it
you wonder why huh? maybe because it's ******* illegal and it brings the cartel and organized crime to the business because it can make a shit load of money. Look what happened in the 30s with prohibition the italian mob became stronger than everyone because they could sell illegal liqour and make a huge profit off of it. When weed is illegal there is money to be made.
