Anna Quindlen, How Reading Changed My Life
(HighTimes) Kansas police can use garbage as probable cause to kick down the doors of unsuspecting citizens. Just ask Bob Harte, whose house was recently raided by a SWAT team after investigators discovered tea leaves in a trash can, which they suspected to be marijuana.
According to reports, the whole crooked incursion began after an officer with the Missouri Highway Patrol witnessed Harte entering a Kansas City hydroponics shop and walking out with a small bag. Apparently, that was enough reasonable suspicion for the officer to turn the info over to the local cops and get them to initiate a full-blown investigation.
Incidentally, it was later discovered that Harte had gone to the Green Circle hydroponics shop with his kids to purchase supplies for a basement hydroponic garden his son was building as a science project.
Investigators showed up at the Harte residence on three separate occasions to run surveillance and rummage through their trash in hopes of uncovering the slightest smidgen of evidence that could help them obtain a search warrant.
It’s like these kids hang on every single statement we make
Like they worship us, plus all the stores ship us platinum
Now how the fuck did this metamorphosis happen?
