POLICE busted a "significant" cannabis factory because its grow lights melted all the SNOW on its roof.

oops - I hate when that happens.



It's a pretty common law enforcement technique. Still funny, but very common.

I saw this on an NCIS DVD last month. the one when they were looking for the kidnapped bride to be.

Uh Oh! My neighbors all have really thick attic insulation, but mine is thin and sucky.

Given the nature of our legal system, I'm suprised they got a search warrent. Police: "Judge, that house has no snow on the roof." Judge: "OMG, WTF...go forth and search the bastards."

I beg to differ, LeDud; there's been way too much rubber-stamping of questionable warrants in recent years...

Good thing I finally upped the insulation in my attic a few weeks ago.

So Richard TWH, how much do you charge or is it for medical use ?

Oh, the weather outside is frightening,
But the hash inside is enlightening.

Probably the green police were more concerned with the substandard insulation.

I remember in Utah when the cops busted an outdoor growing operation. See, Utah is a desert, and these fools were growing a crop that needs irrigation. The green color really stood out. You could see it from miles away.

Merry Cannabismas!

Angels we have heard got high . . .

"I'm Dreaming of a white Christmas, Dude".

"I'm Dreaming of a White Mistress . . ."

Lacy thiiiiiiiiings, mommy's missin';
Didn't aaaaaaaaaask, her permission.
I'm wearin' her clothes, her silk pantyhose,

At the maaaaaaaaall, there's a teddy;
liiiiiiiittle straps, like spaghetti.
I'm wearin' her clothes, her silk pantyhose,

In the office there's a guy named Melvin.
He pretends that he is Murphy Brown.
He'll say "Are you married?" I'll say "No, man. But only when the wife is out of town."

I love traditional holiday carols.

WTOP Radio in D.C. used to play that song every year. There are a few more verses.

Excellent, bonmot. btw - most cannabissers know to insulate their roofs better so this doesn't happen. I read it in "Hints from ("Puff") Heloise."

Bob Vilaaaaaaaaah could have helped them.

"DUDE! Do you think they'll be suspicious of our Op? Maybe we should drive slower?"

LOL to the Utah Operation! The Idiots could have at least tried growing it in the Canyons, where they have green stuff...

Somehow, when I picture people who grow cannibus illegally, I'm not picturing rocket scientists.

EB - Heard on the news today that a Hooptie in Chicago ran a red light, right in front of the cop. Turns out, after a short, failed chase, that said Hooptie had 350 pounds of pot, stuffed into dozens of trash can bags.

Speed may not kill, but it will get you 7 to 10.

Well, they were too high to rent flame throwers and get rid of the snow on their neighbors' roofs. You know how it is: "Hey, we oughta melt the snow on a few other roofs so we don't get caught, man." *sucking, inhaling noise, little gag, "Here," passes the naughty ciggie. "That's a great idea. We'll do it tomorrow. Where are the Doritos?"

SOMEHOW, I could tell that this ARTICLE came from the SUN, due to the random CAPITALIZATION.

Here in Vancouver, Canada, we have police helicopters with infra-red scanners mounted on them. Snow or not, the grow houses (about 20,000 of them at last count) show up instantly on the scanner monitor...it is like a roof-mounted sign that says "search me...I'm growing pot".

Since the average house price out here is about $900,000, and grow houses are automatically subject to forfeiture, apparently the pot growers need remedial courses in economics.
