Question: How many interagency narcotics enforcement team members does it take to screw Oregon’s taxpayers?
Answer: All of them.
This week, personnel from five agencies; the Oregon State Police, the Lane County Sheriff’s Office, both the Eugene and Springfield police departments, and the Lane County District Attorney’s Office, wrapped up a “months-long” investigation that netted one small time marijuana grow. Seized were at total of 106 plants, and three pounds of marijuana, from two houses. There was also one count of child neglect. There was one arrest
This would have been a good day’s work for a cop and a social worker.
So we ask you: How much, in tax dollars, does a five-agency, months-long marijuana investigation cost? Tens of thousands? More??
Because we just spent that.
Which would be funny, since they probably could have just bought the pot for way less. Only it’s not really funny.
