Jesus, they've been on quite a roll I'm Kirivong lately. It's never been a secret that it was a pot growing area, but the recent crackdowns are weird. I think there have been three in the past two weeks? I wonder what made them go full steam ahead on it.

The big advantage to guerrilla farming is that it's anonymous and deniable.

"Who, officer? Me? Growing pot illegally? Never!"

The buggerup factor is that anyone can stumble across your patch and help themselves or
earn useful merit by squealing to the piggies.

Always sad to see babies murdered. Sigh...what they could've been when they grew up. :cry:
