Deputies in Crawford County, Georgia, earned their pay this week by locking away a dangerous 72 year-old elderly man for the terrible crime of growing 22 medicine plants, also commonly known as “marijuana”. The bust took place last Saturday at about 8:00 PM in the middle Georgia town of Fort Valley.
According to the Macon Telegraph, Edward Leandro Salinas was being held in the Crawford County Jail after Magistrate Judge Richard Spencer denied him bond on Monday, and rightfully so considering the damage he could have done to our children with all of the marijuanas he had growing in his home. As you can see from the photo below Salinas was a skilled cannabis farmer, producing only the highest quality reefer in his state-of-the-art cannabis production facility. Don’t let the ragamuffin buckets and tree planters he was growing in fool you — Salinas was a hardened criminal with only one thing on his mind: marijuana and more marijuana. And possibly treating COPD or liver cancer or Alzheimer’s but that’s not what’s important.
In addition to a huge number of cannabis plants police also confiscated a grinder, which is a device that marijuana addicts often use to grind their marijuanas before injecting, snorting or smoking it, and a few grams of dried marijuana. Police also took into evidence a book titled Indoor Marijuana Horticulture, which is a book that marijuana pushers read to learn how to grow weed so potent it can make you lose your mind. He also had a gun, which he probably used to frequently “pop caps” into marijuana addict’s asses.
Salinas was charged with 22 counts of cultivating marijuana, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, possession of drug related objects and possession of marijuana of less than one ounce.
