    The last 2 presidents have all used at least Marijuanna and cocaine. It was ok for them. You elected them anyway. They were all drug addicts. Mr Obama is a recovering cocain and Marijuanna addict. They cannot be trusted. They would sell thei mother for the drug.

      Please stop making sensible comments. You’re exposing the ugly fact that our society is primarily composed of morons and hypocrites.

    Why is the title all about Elk Grove when only 1 of the 7 addresses given appear to be actually in Elk Grove?

  • Germaine

    Tats the guvment that do that to African Americans. They give em drug powder to make they fail

    • Monstera Deliciosa

      Lol. Ya–couldn’t be the African American’s fault. Is the government holding the pipe to their mouth???

      People like relaxing and taking a break from the rigors of society with drugs of all kinds. To make a comparison between what are arguably the two most common of those drugs:

      Ask yourself whether you would want your kids smoking marijuana or getting hammered. If you answered “getting hammered”, you have never smoked marijuana so shut the eff up and don’t judge unless you have the experience required to make an accurate judgement. You’re being unnecessarily combative.

      Difference between a stoned driver and a drunk driver: the drunk driver will blow through a light speeding and T-bone a car, killing 3 and critically injuring 2. A stoned driver will stop at the green light!

    Too many government restrictions on business! If the mayor wants to know why businesses have trouble operating, just look at this raid. These Americans are trying to compete with importers and illegal immigrants growing in our forests. Give them a break!
