A man from Charlotte, North Carolina was growing marijuana in his home and selling it back in Charlotte, according to SC police. Police found 128 plants in the two-story house the suspect was renting.
Twenty-seven-year-old Calvin Dai Hoang (Die Hwong) was arrested Tuesday and charged with trafficking and manufacturing marijuana.
The plants were valued at more than $250,000. Officials say the marijuana was primarily sold in Charlotte.
I’m sure the police are patting themselves on the back, but the fact is there are thousands of people just like this guy, growing and selling weed. This bust is a drop in the bucket, yet how much law enforcement money and resources were wasted on it?
Is putting this man is jail really worth it considering there are an endless line of people ready to take his place? The government likes to pretend that prohibition gives them control of the marijuana market, when in fact, it does just the opposite.
