Authorities have arrested 99 people in what may be the biggest operation in the history of the West Alabama Narcotics Task Force. A two-month undercov
http://bit.ly/XnsjEP 74 arrested MAJORITY of them were Bama Students. About 60!
Any word on who is supplying the football team with HGH?
A lot of Bama players just lost their weed man.

the citizens of alabama should be proud to know their tax dollars are being spent on investigations into marijuana use on college campuses.
What a waste of money. You read the comments on that article and you get Glimpse of how things are changing. This is so silly.
Either Lance Armstrong or the WWE...
send your kids to a drug program..its easy to make it in ,just dont get caught ,wonder how many football
and basketball ect.was involved..they are alabama must be a top program to get in trouble at..lol
Hate to break the news to anyone but Knoxville is just as bad if not worse. Knox county receives federal money because its a high drug traffic area. Has a lot to do with I-40 and I-75 being so close. But I can assure you every sec program has this going on campus and in there athletic program. Since pearls departure maybe it's gotten a little better in the athletic program lol.
Yep we are the pot calling the kettle black. Did you happen to see these kid's mugshots? Some scary looking boys....not.
"Pot" calling the kettle black? I see wutcha did there. Perhaps we should call the kettle cannabis?

While I'm inclined to agree with you in principle (even though I hate the stuff, personally) as someone who supports legalization, the bottom line is you shouldn't be doing it as long as it's illegal.
And yes, the same principle applies to those of us who engaged in underage drinking, which is also illegal. Think back on how many things we did while young and dumb that didn't get us killed or arrested, but could have and/or should have, looking back.
"Everybody does it" wasn't a good enough excuse when I used it (the excuse, that is, not pot) nearly 30 years ago, and it's not now.
All that said, since much of the money spent on such stings is federal, as others posted, you and I are paying for those roundups, too, and if there's a violent crime problem in the area, one would hope they'd spend more effort on preventing/solving that...but as usual in this world, our hopes would be crushed like a potato chip under the blade of a road grader.
But hey, the men's BB team is playing great, so life's good!
And the state attorney general suing the Poarch Creek Indians for having illegal "bingo" slot machines on indian reservations, which happens to be federal land.

This is just sad. Here we have a bunch of redneck cops, probably guys who fell into this profession, with no real passion for preventing criminal activity, all patting each other on the backs for their hard 'investigative work.' Which in this case, is most obviously the help of an informant, who made this bust a piece of cake for this department.
Without the rat, I'm not sure this department would have done much more than any other police force in a college town. What a waste of tax dollars. Paying all these grown men to finds kids with weed. What a great way to improve a state. The kids will find a new outlet in no time. It's inevitable in our culture.

Have to respectuflly disagree big time here:
The key component in changing culture is to, essentially, take it on your own hands. With marijuana, the more people that ignore the law and use it, it changes the common perception, influences important people, etc. Think back to bootlegging of alcohol. That problem was so rampant, it took the criminals and their activity to convince politicians that people needed their drinks and there was ultimately, nothing they could do to stop them.
What campus police do is just pathetic. Fining kids and putting them up for student review, possibly endangering their academic careers over some dumb substance. Confiscate and walk away. That's what I say.
OFFICIAL ARREST COUNT: 61 University of Alabama students Arrested.
