A Big Haul at Walmart, Heroin, and a Big Pot Bust

Crime retains it's hold on the top of the list, but this week we get business and a little bit of government, too.

Patch readers still flocked to crime stories more often than any other last week. An alleged Walmart shoplifter, a man who collapsed from using heroin and a $75,000 marijuana seizure top the list of most read stories.

But peer a little closer and you'll find that readers are also looking forward to Cherry Berry frozen yogurt moving into and you wanted to know about changes proposed in the Mount Pleasant village clerk's office, too.

Without further ado, here is your top ten list of stories:

Traffic Stop Means Felony Charges For Area Woman

Shakeup Planned in Village Clerk's Office

Racine Man Charged With 6th OWI

Police Say Marijuana in Passenger's Underwear Leads to Charges

A Good Walk Spoiled? Tasers Will Do That

Cherry Berry Frozen Yogurt on the House on Opening Day

The whole nonsense of "a-disaster-will-happen-if-we-end-prohibition" sentiment sums up the delusional Chicken-L-little stance of those who foolishly insist on continuing down this horrendous blind alley. As if a disaster isn’t already happening? As if prohibition has ever worked? Literally not one prohibitionist argument survives scrutiny. Not a single one! Under our present regime, these certain plants/concoctions/drugs are sold only by criminals and terrorists; the huge black-market profits are used to bribe and threaten law enforcement officials; the availability and usage rates tend to go up, not down; the prisons have become filled to capacity with easily replaced vendors or smugglers. This list is endless! Law enforcement and rehabilitation are mutually exclusive. Would alcoholics seek help for their illness if doing so were tantamount to confessing to criminal activity? Likewise, would putting every incorrigible alcoholic behind bars and saddling them with criminal records prove cost-effective? Prohibition is the most destructive, dysfunctional, dishonest and racist social policy in America since Slavery. Prohibition is a holocaust in slow motion. We MUST end it NOW!
