Nearly 2,000 marijuana plants found in Colleton Co. green house | Interesting Law News | Scoop.it
The Colleton County Sheriff's Office says nearly 2,000 marijuana plants were found Friday in a green house in Cottageville.

Seriously, police officers in Colleton County have time for this? There are stories of violent crimes in Colleton County on a weekly basis. The man arrested, Michael Rae, appears to have no criminal record at all. People are going to start to realize that this kind of operation is done to make it look like LEO is doing something, when in actuality it diverts police resources from actually policing areas where violent crimes are committed. Priorities must be shifted to violent criminals.
