On Saturday night an interchange along the 10 Freeway in Los Angeles was closed for several hours – as were several surrounding streets – because police discovered a warehouse that contained roughly 3,000 cannabis plants. According to reports, about 20 people were arrested.

“As a result of that investigation, [officers] found thousands upon thousands of marijuana plants inside including growers, lights and fans,” Commanding Officer Matt Blake told the station [KTLA].

The KTLA story says that chemicals consistent with making crystal meth were also found, prompting the road closures in case of explosions. Quite a bold operation from the sound of things; growing a ton of weed and making meth in a warehouse just south of downtown L.A. But prohibition makes these dangerous operations so profitable that any risk is worth it.

In the end, that is all prohibition accomplishes: making products so profitable that people will run any risk – to themselves and to unsuspecting others – to get it to the black market. Just another example of the failure of The War on Drugs.
