$80,000 pot bust on Bell Avenue

HAMILTON COUNTY, TN (WRCB)—Hamilton County Narcotics Detectives busted an elaborate marijuana set-up and put one man behind bars.

Investigators say the man was making a pretty good living selling pot, after all he had an operation worth about $200 grand!

"I's say he had a good business going," says Hamilton County Sheriff's Office Spokesperson, Janice Atkinson.

A so-called good business, that's just been shut down thanks to Hamilton County Sheriff's Department's Narcotics Division.

Thanks to the HC thug squad, who can't handle gang issues without benefits, the cost of a joint has exceeded the cost of a gallon of gas. Why is it when the economy goes down, the cost of everything goes up. This country is in dire need of a government enema, starting with the little local mayors and chiefs all the way to the jackass in the white house.

I feel SOOOO much safer now that some marijuana has been taken out of circulation in our God-fearing upright community. The police should pat themselves on the back for a job well done and remember that all of this wicked contraband will be replaced and back into the underground market within a few days time. I guess for them it is a solid form of job security and certainly something to occupy their time while the gangs continue to overtake the city street by street and block by block.

Reefer Madness! Yes, Chattanooga citizens, you are much safer now from the docile potheads who have been terrorizing our city. Yes they are the ones who buy up all the Little Debbies and Yahoos, depriving the rest of us these few simple pleasures. Good work Po-Po!

Armed and dangerous teenage thugs who would ice your butt for looking at them wrong, well that's a different story. The Po-Po don't got time for their juvenile antics.

Thank god they got this guy, do you know how many people die each year from marijuana? I wonder if the cops have noticed these places called "pipe stores".. Hmm they sell water bongs what are those for I wonder? But yet you can find one relatively close to your home or local area.. I can go to sleep soundly knowing that meth, cocaine, and everything else is still intact and operational around here.. Like it matters if I really wanted drugs I could just go get some booze and cigarettes.. Wonder how many people die a year from those combined?
