FORT PAYNE, Ala. — According to the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office: On Wednesday, September 27, DeKalb County Sheriff’s Deputies, Drug and Major Crimes Unit, Fort Payne Police Department, and Geraldine Police Department came together to do an eradication of drugs all over the County and with the help of Alabama Law Enforcement Agency and Alabama National Guard Counter Drug Unit flying their helicopters the eradication was a success.

During the eradication they recovered a truck that had been reported stolen 3 days ago in a field covered with tree branches. They also found a little over 1500 plants of marijuana from various locations in the County. The Federal Government states that each mature plant is worth approximately $2000 each.

DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Edmondson said, “All of these agencies have worked long hours and has done an outstanding job of ridding our County of these drugs.”

    Great job! Thousands ans thousands of taxpayer dollars WASTED to destroy a natural medicine that has killed no one except for those who the law killed or who's lives were ruined by the ridiculous criminalization of a PLANT. These wannabe men spent all of this time doing and accomplishing NOTHING and the real criminals in Dekalb county wear suits and badges.. Folks are getting sick of this garbage, and the time is coming where it is time to take this country back.
