Seized pot stolen in Maine

Police in Maine say 1,000 marijuana plants that had been seized and placed in a storage facility were stolen last week, according to this report:

An overhead garage door had been "pried open" and much of the marijuana, seized Tuesday in a northern Franklin County drug raid, was gone, Peck said.
The facility is on U.S. Route 2, also known as Farmington Falls Road, east of downtown. It is a half mile from the town police station.
Two electronic garage doors are the only entrance to the building, according to Peck, and the police department has the only remotes to open the doors.
Only the town stores equipment at the facility, he said, and nothing other than the marijuana was taken.

In a rational society we would recognize that the real thieves are the guys with badges. The original owner/cultivator is not the criminal here, they are the victim of a society that will use force against peaceful people for the "crime" of self ownership.

Of course the difference is we do not have a rational society, we have one that rationalizes instead, that's a big difference.

Self ownership is not a crime. The law is wrong and shameful. We are not a free society and no amount of blustering reefer madness rhetoric will change that. Free people own themselves, period,
