Pot Growers Suing Police for Seizing Marijuana Plants
June 26, 2014
From Colorado and Washington state to California and Hawaii, police in medical marijuana states are being sued by people who want their marijuana back after prosecutors chose not to charge them or they were acquitted, reports the Associated Press.
In some cases, the one-time suspects are asking for hundreds of thousands of dollars to replace dead plants.
Concerns over liability have prompted some agencies to either forgo rounding-up the plants altogether or to improvise by collecting a few samples and photographing the rest to use as evidence for criminal charges.

What a bunch of idiots they should be happy they are not behind bars. I say if they want their weed back, have them prove they had a business license for weed, at the time of their arrest.

Far Out, Dude! Something wicked this way comes. Deadly reactions to THC or Tetrahydrocannabinol are going to start coming to the forefront of the new Marihuana revolution. As Pot becomes main stream people that have never tried Marihuana in their life will try it. Allergic reactions to THC is deadly and people will begin to die from this drug. It will take a few years for the mainstream medical agencies to figure this out but it will happen. Some deaths in children have already occurred due to direct contact by ingestion of THC oil based products. I would imagine dispensaries, doctors and product farmers will see their profits diminishing to law suits. Since States are regulating this product they to are now liable for any deaths caused by this drug. I am looking forward to watching how all this will unfold.
