Busts Raise Price Of Marijuana



I'm writing about the article, "$52 million of marijuana confiscated this summer," published Oct. 6.

I'm sure that many marijuana growers and sellers are thankful to the Gila County Narcotics Task Force for these latest marijuana busts and others like it.

Without operations like this, marijuana would be worth what other easy-to-grow weeds are worth -- very little.

Thanks to the Drug Enforcement Administration and other so-called "drug warriors," the easy-to-grow weed is worth more than pure gold -- and completely tax-free.

Any marijuana growers, sellers or traffickers arrested will soon be replaced. They always are.
