    It doesn't matter how many plants there was just that its one more grow house down.The grow house also breed other criminal activities such as theft,sales of other drugs meth and crack which is by far more disasterous to this community.That is what Id like to see them put more effort in and I like them to quit using that punk narc G that has puts drugs in the hands of chidren.But I do have to say the sheriff has kicked ass on drug houses.
