What started as a traffic stop ended up with the seizure of approximately 100 pounds of marijuana, weapons and cash and other paraphernalia in Concord & Pleasant Hill, the Contra Costa County Office of the Sheriff announced today.

A Contra Costa County Office of the Sheriff Sergeant stopped a vehicle for a traffic violation on Hookston Road in Pleasant Hill, and a subsequent consent search of the vehicle resulted in the locating of two large boxes of processed marijuana.

As a result of this seizure, a search warrant was served on a home on Stimel Drive in Concord. A marijuana grow operation of over 150 plants was found on the property. Deputies also found weapons, ammunition, cash and processed marijuana.

Two suspects were arrested and booked on a number of charges including numerous marijuana offenses, conspiracy and theft of utilities. The total street value of the recovered marijuana is estimated to be several hundred thousand dollars.

Under California law it is legal to cultivate marijuana. BS charges will be dropped. Guns are legally owned and registered I bet.

Wow, nice job Sheriff, bet the drug sniffing dog nearly had a coronary!

There should be no crime here.

This is disgusting self-justification on the part of law enforcement and those that gave them this power.

4 Anon May 12, 2014 at 7:41 PM

You can only grow 12 plants in coco county… So this was definitely illegal. Dumb too. If you are carrying illegal amounts of weed, maybe you should obey traffic laws and not agree to a search?! They can’t look in your trunk unless you say OK.

5 I'll never understand May 12, 2014 at 7:48 PM

why people consent to a search when they have boxes of weed in the trunk.

6 Anon May 12, 2014 at 7:57 PM

“Consent search”. Cops probably didnt even ask for permission to search, they don’t need justification if they find something worth prosecuting. Big risk for them, but happens all the time.

Right up there with the idiot in Antioch who got pulled over last week in his BMW for no registration and had boxes of pot in his car. Brains!

11 Why is this a story??? May 12, 2014 at 8:28 PM

I saw this stop go down in the parking lot next to Dick’s. Funny how it’s a huge deal over here but only 1 sheriff deputy was at the scene. When are we gonna stop ruining peoples lives over marijuana? Several hundred thousand street value??? Really? Do you know far you would need too zoom out to see several hundred thousands worth of weed? How about CLAYCORD just reports the story, maybe does a little digging and give us the fact instead of propaganda??? Get f***ing real and maybe we should only weigh the buds and not the stocks and leaves, lol, since that is the only part labeled a drug! You all do know that hemp is a great paper source as well as a cotton replacement right? The pic looks like several pounds, meaning 10 grand, maybe double that. You lose integrity in the community post bulls**t outdated “Drug War” articles like this Claycord, smh. Pot is here to stay, you only make our f***ed up economy worse by putting good people in jail. Ya’ll should go after anyone who brews booze if you’re really concerned about public safety, lol. OUR COUNTRY is more concerned about CONTROL than freedom these days

While corporations rob the general populous of their livelihood we’re sitting here arresting folks that grow cannabis. Congratulations coppers, you’ve successfully put two burnouts behind bars who were providing people with a product that makes the garbage we eat taste good. The crap we watch on television enjoyable. And the miserable existence we’ve created for ourselves bearable.

You pothead and pothead dealers keep whining cuz your days are numbered. Californians were tricked into thinking medical marijuana laws would only help those who were gravely ill and suffering and thst it would be allowed under very controlled conditions. But now that we know it is a big FARCE, with 18 yr olds who carry medical marijuana cards cuz they suffer from glaucoma and back pain which they purchased from a CROOKED doctor making a quic buck, it won’t be long until we repeal the whole farce of a law thst passed. Keep blowing your smoke, sit back, and watch what is going to be the end of your free ride. And drug dealing to boot!

25 ConcordMike May 12, 2014 at 9:14 PM

The pot grown these days is much stronger and potent than in the 70′s and 80′s. It takes less to get high, so the prices are more expensive. Hence the high value. Most of the comments here stating the facts are wrong, are most likely from people who should have quit smoking a long time ago. Your comments are a result of your brain not growing any more.

26 crazytech58 May 12, 2014 at 9:25 PM

Legal or not, that quantity of weed is a DEALER, and the fact that weapons were recovered only shows that they are an element of drug dealer society that we don’t need on the streets, next is drive by shootings at someone who is also selling weed in their area, and of course, the REAL kicker….. stealing electricity to power their grow lamps !!! WHO do you think PAYS for that loss of un-metered electricity ?? WE DO….. PG&E is not going to absorb that cost, they just pass it along like any business, to the consumer

Marijuana is a drag. Smoking it causes cancer AND impairs brain function.

If I hated America and wanted this country to fall to ruin, I would support the legalization of Marijuana, destroy the traditional definition of Marriage, inflame racial tensions, stoke the fires of class warfare, and cut the military budget and destroy military morale. (hmmm… sounds the agenda of the democrat party).

Go after the Meth dealers….make a real difference. My generation and the next two after me have burned out their brains with it. Pot is here to stay, meth will be here a long time to come and only will get worse, people my age(60+) are doing meth now. Drunks are a real bright bunch too, but is socially accepted and legal. And BTW, that ain’t that much weed.

35 Vandy May 12, 2014 at 11:38 PM

Growing, selling, and using Marijuana should all be legal. Marijuana is safe and beneficial. This is why it is starting to become legalized in many places. Marijuana prohibition is a failure and bad for the economy.
We should be focusing on worse criminal offenses like violence and theft, crimes which really affect our community in a negative way.

36 please reconsider May 12, 2014 at 11:44 PM

There is no proof that cannabis causes cancer. In fact, the National Cancer Instute won’t say that. What they do day is that studies are inconclusive, at best.

http://www.cancer.gov/cancertopics/pdq/cam/cannabis/healthprofessional/page5#Section_105

Conversley, there are more and more studies out there showing the absolute health benefits of cannabis. The properties of that plant treat a nearly endless list of ailments, from conditions such as anxiety, PTSD, depression, to epilepsy and Parkinson’s. In fact, studies have shown that it is the only medicine that causes cancer cells to commit suicide while leaving other healthy cells intact.

http://m.cancer.gov/topics/CAM/cannabis/Patient

The therapeutic and medicinal properties of the cannabanoids that can only be found in cannabis are extensive and varied. This isn’t news. People have been using this plant as a natural relaxant and medicine for centuries. It’s only been the last 100 years when the sentiment changed, thanks to a very aggressive anti-cannabis campaign launched by the US. Our government knows the benefits of this plant, which is why they took a patent out on it over 10 years ago.

http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=6630507.PN.&OS=PN/6630507&RS=PN/6630507

Pharma companies are doing their best to provide cannabis-like medicine during prohibition so what they do instead is provide us with one-dimensional synthetic versions of it instead.

A human being cannot overdose on cannabis, it’s humanely impossible because of the cannabanoid receptor systems in our body.

And no, not everyone who uses cannabis is limping around with a terminal illness. And why should they be? It’s a completely non-toxic, natural way to remedy day-to-day ailments that most people rely on alcohol, caffeine, or pills for.

This doesn’t mean that cannabis is is completely harmless. Chronic use by young people under 25 can result in long term effects because the frontal lobe is still developing and heavy cannabis use can interfere with brain development.

The point of this posting is to simply help share knowledge about a truly fascinating and beneficial natural resource that has been used by human beings for centuries.

I don’t normally post comments to articles but when I see comments about how cannabis kills people, causes cancer, etc, I think it’s important for us to be more aware of reality.

I am convinced that the anti-marijuana movement is one if the most successful propaganda pushes we’ve ever seen in this country. But we are an intelligent, educated population of people and we know how to unlearn these kinds of things.

37 MrDioji May 12, 2014 at 11:56 PM

@34: they didn’t “go after” anyone. They got lucky with a traffic stop. It’s not like they spent tons of resources on a sting operation. If they were meth dealers or meth heads, then the weapons probably would have been used, rather than just possessed.

Sure, there are bigger fish to fry, but if this falls into your lap, you’ve got to follow through and send a message. I think marijuana should be completely legal, but it’s not and these guys were clearly drug dealers, even if relatively small ones.

Life? Really? I’m not a smoker, but even I think that life is a bit over the top.

If people truly want to put dealers like these guys out of business, then the answer is to legalize it. The illegal dealers won’t be able to compete with legally grown, produced and regulated product, because it’s FAR LESS CHEAPER than the stuff these guys are peddling.

39 Mary Jane May 13, 2014 at 12:40 AM

It’s these dwealers that are dumbing up our kids.

No dealers=no buyers

40 Mr. Moses May 13, 2014 at 1:16 AM

Wow wait a waste of time and money.

You know how you can tell the gun stuff is pure propaganda and they are legally owned? Those guns are in cases. “Criminals” don’t bother to case their guns and people who do case their guns almost invariably have them locked. Where are the locks? The cops “forgot” to include them in the picture of course (after they had cut them off). Also explains why the shotgun doesn’t have a gun lock on it too. You don’t case your handguns and just leave an unlocked shotgun laying around. Although that shotgun doesn’t appear California legal so there is some explanation needed there.

If this isn’t an example of the demand for herb, I don’t know what is. With medicinal marijuana, it is de facto legal. Nobody gets denied a card if they want one. So even with such a system in place the inefficiencies still bring out small time entrepreneurs. Just legalize weed already. Bad enough that cops are overpaid (especially sheriffs), but to also give them “wins” like this so that they feel that they actually earned their pay is just too much!!

41 offdutydeputy May 13, 2014 at 1:17 AM

No matter what your opinion is on marijuana, it is still against the law and in this case a Felony. Therefor, an Officer or Deputy is sworn to uphold the law. We don’t get to pick and chose what laws are made we simply enforce them the best we can. Especially a felony that we can’t turn a blind eye to.

I’ve worked with hundreds of Deputies and Officer’s to include the narcotics Detectives. Every single one would rather make a meth, heroin or coke arrest over a MJ arrest any day. I’ve never heard a single Law Enforcement Officer excited or motivated to go find someone with marijuana.

The day LAW MAKERS, NOT Police say it is no longer an illegal substance, Law Enforcement will move on. Blame the politicians, not the Police.

My favorite medical condition for a medical MJ card was “asthma”. Couldn’t keep a straight face after that one.

42 anon May 13, 2014 at 2:16 AM

oh, that is good…the one about hemp making good ropes and paper. so that’s what these guys are really doing? making paper, rope and don’t forget shampoo now. oh let me add one if you didnt know…. a certain part, i believe the seeds, but maybe wrong, are sold for parrots and you’ll have to search for the benefit.

43 anon May 13, 2014 at 2:22 AM

But, Sheriff, It’s for my Hemp milk business. Don’t you know about the nutritional benefits of Hemp?
Superior Protein with Hemp

Hemp seeds are another nutrition powerhouse. They contain all of the essential amino acids and essential fatty acids to maintain human life. They provide the most complete source of protein available from a plant source, and in a form that is highly absorbable and usable by the body. They have a perfect blend of Omega-3 and other essential fatty acids that is superior to even flax and chia seeds.3
According to David Wolfe, the highly absorbable plant protein found in hemp products comes from sulphur-bearing amino acids. These amino acids are known to create strong flexible muscles and support the development of healthy neurotransmitters. They improve memory and strengthen brain cells.

Hemp seeds, hemp powder and hemp milk can be powerful and healing additions to your diet. Hemp milk makes a great substitute for dairy or soy. Hemp milk is delicious, creamy and rich in healthy fats. Unlike soy it contains no phytic acid, which blocks mineral absorption. You can make your own fresh hemp milk from the seeds with this simple recipe. Also, hemp powder can be used in protein shakes and smoothies in place of whey or soy protein powder with much safer and more effective results.

Edible hemp products are made from the seed of the hemp plant. Although this plant is related to the plants that produce marijuana, edible hemp has no psychoactive properties. The only way that it will alter your mind and your body is by nourishing it with good wholesome nutrients.

Hemp seeds should be stored whole. The ground seeds, as well as hemp seed oil, become rancid quickly. They are best eaten raw and can be eaten whole or ground. They add a nutty taste and superfood nutrition to granola, salads, and smoothies. Hemp seed is an adequate source of calcium and iron. Whole hempseeds are also a good source of phosphorus, magnesium, zinc, copper and manganese.

44 anon May 13, 2014 at 2:26 AM

so, dealers, take a little of that profit and invest in some flyers or a display sign. Get one about he size that you’d find at the farmers market. Then buy some hemp milk as well as other hemp products. Maybe even take some photos of you using some of these products. That way if you get stopped maybe it will sound like you have a hemp product business.

@OffDutyDeputy:

Cannabis has been shown to help ease the symptoms of asthma:

well, hemp does make a very strong rope and medicinal marijuana has been proven and used for thousands of years.

62 Vandy May 13, 2014 at 8:41 AM

Marijuana was demonized by the media in the early 20th century because the hemp fibers in the plant posed serious competition to Nylon produced by Dupont Corporation. Dupont used its lobbying power and connections with Hearst’s newspapers to convince the American public to ban pot. The promoted reasoning for prohibition was the drug itself. But the true reason behind prohibition was to kill Nylon’s primary competitor.

The illegal nature of marijuana has spawned “culture wars” over the decades where scientific research was suppressed, and usage was scorned by the uneducated public (as seen in posts here where older folks still think of Marijuana as an “evil drug” connected with crime and violence – be sure to point out that money and guns are found in a marijuana user’s house). Yet recent studies have shown that marijuana *cures cancer*, is a miracle drug for anti-nausea purposes, and is not harmful in ways that have long been assumed and impressed upon youth. The culture wars continue though, and only through education can we get “dry” counties like Contra Costa to open up. It might take California legalizing Cannabis for recreational use before we have it legal in Contra Costa.

I would never leave a dog on the freeway.

Legalize pot! We demand it now .

@40 it’s not the dealers dumbing your kids, it’s your own failure as a parent to educate them on the ways of society. And no dealers ? What do you think these large corporate pharmaceutical companies are? Let’s talk about the anti depressives and anti anxiety meds, same thing here…… Or Ritalin for ADD …. Same thing here more dealers making money of unnecessary drugs.

@37 thank you , thank you for the factual supportive evidence and educating these dumb people who are too closed minded to new technology and new ways…

No I’m not a smoker, but I am for an overall better quality of life for people who benefit from utilizing cannabis.

100lbs is a bit excessive. Defiantly not 100 in that pic , but growing 150pkants under lights is like 1000 a month in electricity alone. That’s why they were stealing, cuz they can’t afford the bill….. The fine from pg&e is heavier than the fine from the local law enforcement .

Now, I’m going to go home, invest in brewing alcohol and sell it on the street to alcoholics and homeless…… But I don’t go to jail, no harm done right?

Claim pot is harmless? Try being married to a stoner. Irresponsible piece of cr%&^* pure and simple. You have to be motviated to get off the couch to support a family instead of playing video games. and as for the let’s legalize it group, that gives the okay to the youth that there is nothing wrong with it and there is. So what, legalize it for over 25? More stupid arguments from more potheads. SO sick of it. The udner the table profits, the stealing of electricity to grow it, the cost of the fire departments who constantly have to respond when the house oes up in flames. I’m SO sick of all of it.

Just legalized it and these morons will have to get a real job. Do you see people slanging home made Tabaco ? How ignorant can the voter pool be, we all know its harmless compared to booze. Yet whiskey and vodka are A OK. Heres the thing I don’t feel bad for these guys getting caught. If they sell to clubs and get taxed im ok with it, but street dealing gets it in the hands of kids so im not cool with that part. Besides any kid over 18 that gets his cannabis card is being responsible/paying taxes on his herb and covering his butt from the clutches of our out of control police force that can’t stop the real menace aka METH

@29 Shuley… you got me! And I said I’d never be one of those fools….

84 guns plus excess weed equals jail May 13, 2014 at 9:24 PM

People forget that when you have guns in a house that cultivates pot for sale, you have now forced them to charge you with a felony. On top of that, it’s still illegal to grow pot and to sell it, federally. The smart people don’t try to get rich off of pot. They keep a low profile. This is going to cost the offenders thousands in legal fees, plus their loses at minimum. On top of that, they will owe PGE about 100,000 bucks and will never be able to obtain electricity under their name until that debt is paid. That makes it grand larceny to boot. Are all you pot heads too stoned to realize what is really going on? I advocate legalization and fair trade, but until our laws change federally, anyone who does this is playing russian roulette. On top of that….you’re more likely to eventually get robbed and killed than anyone who is smart enough to stay small time and low key. They are def. criminals…no doubt about it. I wouldn’t be surprised if the shot someone in their line of work to protect their investment. It’s still a shady business no matter how you slice it and when kids in high school start smoking it, they can stunt their mental growth, emotional development and permanently become lazy half wits. I have no proof other than the people I grew up with and my personal opinion. I’m not going to pretend that I am teaching anyone facts, but I’m not stuck on stupid like these culprits, so I would gamble that I’m correct.
