Hamilton County narcotics investigation leads to 167 indictments

A year-long narcotics investigation conducted by the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office and other agencies resulted in 167 indictments being issued, police said.

Forty-eight people were arrested Wednesday on various drug-related charges as part of the operation, Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Janice Atkinson said.

During the operation, law enforcement seized a car, $128 in cash, 25 grams of marijuana, 14 grams of methamphetamine and a methamphetamine lab, Atkinson said.

The drug indictments included simple possession, possession to resale, sale and delivery of narcotics, manufacturing marijuana, manufacturing methamphetamine and conspiracy, Atkinson said

The initiative, dubbed Operation Hustle Flow II, began as a response to concerns from neighborhood watches and communities in unincorporated Hamilton County, Atkinson said.

Seriously, WTF? It took a year to get a couple tweekers and less than an ounce of pot? For that matter how do you divide the less than an ounce of weed between 48 people? I don't get it.

Processing it? Do you mean... leaving it alone so that it can dry out?

How about this, have you ever heard of manufacturing apples or bananas?

And, to attribute the photosynthesis and cell division of plant growth to the presence of a human is a little silly megan.

Are you one to stare really hard at plants and claim that you "growed" them?
