    This must be a STONERS Convention. Clean your Bongs and pipes\ or use fresh papers if you roll your own, since ou guys sound like you got some kind of contamination thing going on. Please, practice safe pot smoking, since contaminants and that nasty grunge can cause distemper and a case of the JAWS.

    ...and yes... I'm aware that I contradicted myself at one point in my last post. It was deliberate.

    Jackson, your sarcasm isn't necessary and doesn't really help your own point of view, either. I made my comment hastily and didn't pay much attention to the fact that I mistakenly typed CSPD instead of KKTV. If you can't comment without resorting to personal attacks and making assumptions, how do you expect to be taken seriously. As for "Cop," you apparently didn't read my posts on a different related story a couple days ago where I clearly stated that I do not use marijuana or other drugs. That, along with the fact that I don't own any firearms, should answer the question you asked me, though. Now I'm thinking it is you two who need to grow up -- not KKTV or CSPD.

    It is amazing that more of these punks don't get shot while commiting these home invasions. More than likely he let them in by opening the door and they just had the jump on him from there. I'm not surprised to hear that drugs were involved, and even less surprised to find that it happened in that part of town. Perhaps this is yet another reminder of our once beautiful city's downfall, and a glimpse of the times to come.

    And Troy, CSPD does not write these stories. If you can't at least appear somewhat intelligent, don't hurt your cause by opening your mouth.

    No one would steal Marijuana if it werent made so valuable by prohibition. The headline was chosen to catch eyes, not not to "hit" the wonderful flower I smoke daily. Notice that the marijuana is just brought up as your everyday property. It was just one of the things stolen, and they are going after the criminals. Don't jump to conclusions and make yourself look stupid. This is not a hit piece, obviously. READ IT.

    Obiously they knew this guy, he owed them something...and you're right why would you say they took your hoot. This was an inside job and he for some reason felt he needed to report it. They took the gun so they could hock it off and get what he owed them.
