Is "Big Brother" Watching You Cultivate Your Crop?


As usual, Bill Maher was on point with his recent assertion that, in addition to weather gone wild – as those on the East Coast have learned – it’s not really a problem for humans to concern themselves with, so long as you don’t mind having a boat in your front yard. Be that as it may, the elephant in the room throughout the last four presidential debates – that was never discussed by the two major parties, is the American public’s frustration with the federal government’s ill-conceived war on weed. This poorly planned conflict against its own people is possibly the most vile use of the public tax dollars since the last time Richard Nixon cashed his presidential paycheck.

Not only has the war on weed been an ill-conceived waste of money, it has also created a nightmare within the criminal justice system, placing young passive pot smokers alongside professional adult criminals… In addition it’s made huge inroads towards familiarizing its citizens to life under the scrutiny of an and all seeing government.

Police are allowed in some circumstances to install hidden surveillance cameras on private property without obtaining a search warrant, a federal judge said yesterday. 

Our most recent reminder of a big brother state comes from the “Forward” thinking state of *Wisconsin. It was here that a federal judge ruled under certain conditions, reconnaissance cameras can be placed on an individuals private property, minus a warrant. It should shock absolutely no one that the drug enforcement administration was the mastermind behind this Orwellian plan, and that the reprobates under the watchful eye of the DEA were suspected of growing weed. The two dazed and confused cultivators now are faced with the possibility of life in prison… and a $10 million fine. (Insanity at its worst.) This unsettling example of the intrusive nature of technology in the hands of unfettered law enforcement, the last time I checked our country still has a Bill of Rights, (I think). And as an American citizen, any disagreement derived from a misunderstanding between our current technology and civil liberties should be decided to the benefit of the individual.

 U.S. District Judge William Griesbach ruled that it was reasonable for Drug Enforcement Administration agents to enter rural property without permission — and without a warrant — to install multiple “covert digital surveillance cameras” in hopes of uncovering evidence that 30 to 40 marijuana plants were being grown. source

Well isn’t that sweet… Due to our misguided “war” on drugs, increasingly communities are not only turning to private prisons, they’re guaranteeing them 100% occupancy with our insane drug policy.

*Reflecting Wisconsin’s continuous drive to be a national leader, the state adopted “Forward” as the official state motto in 1851.
