Laurens Law Enforcement capture man with large marijuana crop

A man was arrested after SLED aviation enforcement discovered a marijuana crop from the air.  Then Laurens County narcotic agents searched the property and found a large indoor marijuana growing operation on the property with around 200 marijuana plants.  Agents also discovered over 40 firearms and over $1,000.

James Edwin Ollis, 42 of Ware Shoals was arrested and charged with trafficking marijuana and cultivating marijuana.

In a statement, Laurens County Sheriff Don Reynolds said there may be people making negative comments on such drug bust with so many arguing for legal marijuana, but he said as long as its illegal in our state, he will continue such efforts.

Great job Laurens police. Many people today, because the government says something is legal, believe that means it's good. I tell dope smokers all the time "If smoking dope is good and everyone should do it and it hurts no one, then tell the heart surgeon who's about to operate on your infant child, to go get stoned first before they open your child's chest" How silly.

I say all this as an ex druggie too, the dope causes addiction and smoke is horrible for the lungs- just to name a couple.. IT CAUSES CANCER TOO! Yes, I know many of you believed dope heals it.. Smoke causes cancer, not heals it- a dope smoker came up with that one.. My research is meticulous and also I have God given common sense.

AND I don't want someone's exhausted comment of information that you got from the internet on how dope's good for you.. Again, if you think it's good for everyone and hurts no one, then refer back to the first paragraph.

And for all you who said, God made it! HE also made poison oak, you smoking that? Examine yourself.
