I may late to the party, but has a state specific sub-forum

Ever been discussed? For instance, it would be great to have an opportunity to communicate with other growers in my state of Illinois and get some feedback on how it’s gone for them so far in a state that just implemented a legal grow program for medicinal cannabis card patients. We’ve probably all heard all the horror stories from Michigan about how local sheriffs nazis came in and seized children’s Christmas gifts, Playstations, and basically anything the average citizen could turn into cash for not being compliant with caregiver guidelines. Or in California where Fish & Game were given autonomy to crack heads and seize property.

I just think it would be a very useful sub-community, and hopefully those who have gone before us have some experiences they can share that can possibly head off any undesirable situations.

I lived in California during the medical use acts and recreational laws being passed. Never heard of what you mentioned.

Well for one… the federL and most state department of fish and wildlife are one of the most powerful law enforcement agencies in the world. Its rediculous what they are authorized to do. For example dont need a warrant to search your vehicle or property if there is an animal on it, dead or alive.

And secondly, ive lived in 3 states where its been made legal. Never heard of abuse of power by any state agencies. Not heard of any feds gettin stupid either.

Basically i loooooooooove all things govt conspiracies, but this one i aint heard.

To be clear, I don’t want to be known as the new guy that’s slinging accusations at law enforcement. I have close family and friends currently employed as
LE.

Please take the time to watch the VICE pieces, but a quick Google search brings an avalanche of links about the abuse of LE on many levels in Michigan.
