SO the Colorado thugs sent in a SWAT team to raid the home of suspected grower.
Unfortunately for them, it appears that they did not bother to do any preparation or detective work other than strapping on the guns and bashing in the guys door. Turns out that the owner of the house, Kevin Dickes, has a license for growing marijuana to treat the pain he suffers from a shrapnel injury he received while serving his country in Iraq.
It also turns out that under Colorado law, any property used for cultivating medical marijuana may not be destroyed by the police. Sixty-five of Kevin's plants were destroyed and he is seeking compensation from the police using the standard DEA valuation of $5,200 per plant. Grand total ?
$369,200 in damages.
Time to start writing some traffic tickets boys!
