Alabama Narcotics Cops Brag about Busting an elderly man with MS

This is some really sick stuff.

According to the Birmingham News DEA agents and the Alabama National Guard Marijuana Eradication Team have destroyed over 18,000 marijuana plants this year. Why, these heartless swine are even bragging about busting an elderly man who was growing it to treat his Multiple Sclerosis.

By the DEA's own admission 98% of the estimated 223 million marijuana plants destroyed by law enforcement in 2005, approximately 219 million were classified as "ditchweed," a term the agency uses to define "wild, scattered marijuana plants [with] no evidence of planting, fertilizing, or tending." Unlike cultivated marijuana, feral hemp contains virtually no detectable levels of THC, the psychoactive component in cannabis, and does not contribute to the black market marijuana trade.

So, how much money is the state of Alabama wasting by using helicopters and the National Guard to harass elderly men suffering from Multiple Sclerosis and to pull up and burn feral hemp plants that are of no use in the black market?

Is it just me, or do the guys in the picture seem to be enjoying their work just a little too much?
