For a Wednesday morning update, the C-J's on the story: Couple arrested in drug case Ex-candidate's home searched, by Dick Kaukas.
Police said that they found "an indoor marijuana growing operation" in the basement of the couple's home and that officers recovered more than 35 pounds of marijuana.
I take no pleasure in passing along this story from today's Tribune. In my opinion, marijuana should be legal.
But it remains illegal.
And news is news.
