      I think you got the word out. Are you too nervous to call them?
      I do know it seems like there might be a snitch in there, it always seems like on some of those raids all the growers are gone....kind of like they got a tip of a raid was about to happen.

Wow, good news for about 50% of the democrats, no education required. You will need help in signing your name on the permit though. But any child in school can show you where to put your X.

$200 for a chain installer permit? J Brown and the Ds just aren't happy unless they got a hand in your pocket.
