  • Toddler Found In Marijuana Growing House

    http://www.kcci.com/news/27721951/detail.html

    NEWTON, Iowa -- A Prairie City family was arrested during a drug raid Wednesday night by the Mid-Iowa Narcotics Enforcement Task Force, reported the Newton Daily News.

    Authorities said they found a 2-year-old child living in the marijuana manufacturing house at 300 S. Marshall St. at 10:11 p.m.

    Harmon Wesley Wright Jr., 63, Harmon Wesley Wright III, 24, and Jenna Wright, 22, were arrested and charged in the case, reported the Newton Daily News.

    Investigators said they found three marijuana plants growing with proper light and air filtration systems in an unlocked basement. Also discovered during the search were two baggies of marijuana, one on a dining room table the other in Wright Jr.’s coat pocket.

    The 2-year-old child was removed from the home by authorities reported the Newton Daily News.

    All people arrested are facing multiple drug charges including three counts each of no drug tax stamp, manufacturing of marijuana, possession of methamphetamine and marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia. Jenna Wright and Wright III face an additional charge of neglect and abandonment of a minor.

    Wednesday night’s raid marks the fourth search warrant executed by the MINE Task Force in Jasper County in the last month.

    An equally dangerous plant to grow or be around:




    The only danger posed is of a legal variety, not a physical one (unless someone chose to rob you for it, which would still only occur due to the substance being illegal).

    An unsecured liquor bottle is significantly more dangerous.


    Taking that into account, you're still an idiot to have an illegal substance around your 2 year old, irregardless of whether the law is just or based upon sound fact and reason.


    Now the meth? That is outright despicable. If it was being manufactured in the home with the child, that is beyond cruel.

      So was the 2 year old charged. I would thought he was the mastermind of the whole operation.

        Probably the smartest one in the household.

            They had my sympathy until the meth part came up.

            There's meth and meth heads in there and it gets reported as a "Toddler found in marijuana growing house"?

            I would have thought the meth would have been a bigger issue than 3 plants.

                  Worse. According to Congressional testimony from Harry J Anslinger, Commissioner of the Treasury Department's Federal Bureau of Narcotics; "This marijuana causes white women to seek sexual relations
                  with Negroes, entertainers and any others."

                  Never mind the Meth. Keep that devil's weed off the streets!
