Illegal Wash. Grow House Robbed, 2 Killed

December 07, 2012  | 

A homeowner fatally shot two armed intruders, who entered a marijuana grow house Thursday, the same day the drug became legal in Washington.

Pierce County Sheriff's deputies responded to the luxury home in Puyallup at 8 a.m. to find two masked men critically wounded. The men could not be revived, reports KOMO.

While it is legal to use up to an ounce of marijuana in Washington, it is still illegal to grow or sell the drug.

But wait!!! There was a forerm Denver Police LT that made commercials telling the voters that marijuana never leads to crime or violence! How can this happen?!?!?

Oh that's right... he never should have gotten a badge inthe first place... At least the homeowner didn't get killed... we have been dealing with these in CO since the medical marijuana joke began.

Prepare to see your schools and streets flooded with pot and all the violence that comes with it.

This whole thing is a joke...

You're right AJ! Schools and streets will flow with marijuana, kids will become lust crazed lunitics that will beat your daughter and rape your dog! Husbands will cheat on their wifes and the wives will be prone to fits of hysteria. The four horsemen are surely upon us!

Your logic and, if you're an officer, your sense of justice is severely flawed.

No violent crimes. Yeah right. Well two guys won't have to worry about it will they. Wake up and smell the coffee people this is just a beginning note. It's going to get nasty on the streets.

Terrg is right and legalization is going to lead to harder drugs being pushed for more money. If marijiana is legalized shit will hit the fan

Kids are already stealing from everyone theu know to afford thwir ezpensive drug habbits. Not even the dealers are safe from these addicts.
