    Warning on possible pot growers called profiling

    "A federal warning to beware of campers in national forests who eat tortillas, drink Tecate beer and play Spanish music because they could be armed marijuana growers is racial profiling"

    Now normally, I'd say this was Faux News... but from the liberal bastion that is the AP... wow.


    Not sure what the big deal is... pot is legal in San Francisco.

    P.S. Tecate is not that bad...quite refreshing, as are most mexican beers... oh wait that was racist in itself.

    It's OK, FaceQueen... nobody hates you because you're white.
    We hate you because you're stupid. MAJOR difference.

    Methinks you've all missed the point of your justice system moving (rapidly) towards a new concept of guilty until proven innocent.

    Make sure you get a collar that fits. They itch like hell otherwise.

    This is news to me! :eek: The only people I knew that actually grew pot in college were white.

    OMG! I can't believe you said that! :rofl:

    I was thinking the same thing. The biggest dope dealers at university were white middle class boys growing it out the back of daddys 4 car garage.

    Heavily armed Mexican drug operations cultivating marijuana in the forests is actually a major problem in California's vast state and national park lands. It is a threat to the public safety, and I have no problem with random Mexicans being questioned by troopers in the parks.

    Headline said "profiling," article said "racial profiling," quote from professional hysterics said that the statement is "discriminatory," another professional hysteric spoke about "unfair stereotypes." Perhaps the only trendy hot-button accusation not actually used was "racism," though "racial profiling" (not supported by a direct quote) comes close.

    Personally, I'm only alarmed about the correlation with "Spam" and "Tuna."

    The important claim, that the itinerant cultivators might be armed and dangerous, is not supported by the article. Nevertheless, the federal policy seems harmless enough. Nobody is calling for indiscriminate attacks on anyone littering the parks with tortilla packaging.

    White people grow in their closets, and mexicans grow in the forrests...not racist, just factual...based on personal experience of course

    Well, I should take that back because I know a 58 year old white man who grows in his backyard, which has a bunch a trees in it

    Imagine the rain of hysterical criticism on the US Forest Service if it offered warnings about the possible dangers of Hispanic drug farmers in your closet.
