lets arrest the old hippies; the kids are too clever and the old folks won’t see it coming

Upstanding Citizen and Pillar of the Community… arrested for pot.

For many, Bob Chance has been the face of ecology in Harford County.

He taught earth science during a three-decade run in the public schools – and was named to the school system’s Hall of Fame. He promoted recycling long before the government got involved. He wrote a nature column for the local paper, won election to public office, and showed countless youngsters the wonders of the great outdoors as Ranger Bob.

And now he is, at 62, a defendant in a drug case.

Authorities say he has been growing marijuana at the farm where he raises and sells Christmas trees. And they say they found enough of the drug, either in plant form or packaged in freezers, to roll thousands of joints – so they are taking steps to seize his farm.

I believe their math is off, unless those were some monster marijuana plants.

The fact is, Bob broke the law, and by all accounts, should be punished accordingly. The problem is that more and more of our older, more distinguished citizens are being busted for pot. And their only crime is often growing and/or possessing some weed for their own (and their friends, more than likely) use. And from the tone of the locals interviewed, everyone knew he smoked pot, but didn’t care.

I wouldn’t be surprised to hear that the jury finds him not guilty.
