Police suspect Md. dogfighting ring

Cecil County authorities have seized 11 pit bulls and more than 100 marijuana plants during a search of an Elkton home.

The Cecil County Drug Task Force searched the home in the 300 block of Red Hill Road on Thursday, uncovering a suspected dogfighting ring.

Investigators found K-9 performance-enhancing drugs, antibiotics, a pistol, intravenous fluids, and a video of six dogfighting matches, among other things.

Officials say they discovered some of the dogs chained to the marijuana plants.

Police say no one was at home during the search and no arrests were made.

Pit Bulldogs chained to marijuana plants? They must have been some big azz plants, lol.

Legalize marijuana and regulate it like alcohol and tobacco. The drug war has failed and is doing far more harm than good. We should decide what we choose to put in our own body as long as we don't harm others. Drug prohibition funds criminals, gangsters, terrorists and the criminal injustice system. When was the last time you heard of alcohol dealers getting into a shootout? I bet it was when alcohol was illegal. Prohibition never works!

The Constitutional right to freedom of religion, free speech, a free press, to keep and bear arms, to be secure in your person, house, papers and effects against unreasonable search and seizure, to life, liberty and property, to be protected from having your property taken by the government without due process of law and without just compensation, to confront the witnesses against you, to be protected from excessive bail, excessive fines, cruel and unusual punishment, to vote and others have been unjustly denied to millions of Americans in the name of the drug war.

It amazes me that some people still believe the drug war is promoting prohibition because they are trying to keep us and especially our children safe. They are lying to you!!!

ALL MAJOR AUTHORITIES AGREE THAT THE VAST MAJORITY OF DRUG-RELATED VIOLENT CRIME IS CAUSED BY THE PROHIBITION AGAINST DRUGS, RATHER THAN THE DRUGS THEMSELVES. THIS WAS THE SAME DURING ALCOHOL PROHIBITION. ALCOHOL PROHIBITION GAVE RISE TO A VIOLENT CRIMINAL ORGANIZATION JUST LIKE EVERY OTHER DRUG PROHIBITION HAS. THESE CRIMES SHOULD MORE ACCURATELY BE DESCRIBED AS PROHIBITION RELATED, RATHER THAN DRUG RELATED.

NO ONE, OF ANY AGE, IN ALL OF RECORDED HISTORY, ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD, HAS EVER DIED FROM THE INGREDIENTS IN MARIJUANA... MANY HAVE DIED FROM ITS PROHIBITION.
