Big Bandidos weed bunker bust near Goulburn

By 9 November, 2012 27

An associate of an Outlaw Motorcycle Gang has been arrested and charged after police raided a property near Goulburn seizing $4million dollars of cannabis yesterday.

About 11:45am, Thursday 8 November 2012, officers attached to Goulburn Local Area Command attended a rural property on Oallen Ford Road, Oallen.

Police conducted a search warrant at the property where they allegedly discovered 2,006 cannabis plants being hydroponically grown inside a shed and an underground bunker.

Officers also located and seized a large amount of fertiliser and equipment allegedly used in the cultivation of the cannabis.

Police will allege the cannabis has an estimated potential street value of $4million.

A 25-year-old man, who police will allege is an associate of the Bandidos OMCG, was arrested on the property and taken to Goulburn Police Station.

He was charged with enhanced indoor cultivation for commercial purposes, cultivate prohibited plant (large commercial quantity) and organise/assist/conduct drug premises and refused bail to appear in Goulburn Local Court today (Friday 9 November 2012).

Two other men who were located on the property were spoken to by police and released without charge pending further investigations.

With all that weed of the streets I predict a dramatic decline in bashings outside Civic nightclubs in the coming weeks.

How is this good work?

Unfortunately it is going to take decades to breed out this incredibly ignorant “drugs are bad because that’s what they told me when I was a kid” idiocy.

And as for legalization of all drugs – why didn’t this happen ten years ago?

Presumably the Bandidos’ horticultural efforts were impinging on somebody else’s business plan.

I can’t think of any other conceivable rational reason for the police to waste their time and resources arresting people for growing plants.

The only good thing is that it takes money away from the real criminals.

Put the Bandidos out of business and free the cops to do useful things.

Funnily enough, his opinions coincide with those of former AFP Commissioner Mick Palmer:
http://shapingaustraliasfuture.blogspot.com.au/2012/06/mick-palmer-on-drug-law-reform.html

“The reality is that … drug law enforcement has had little impact on the Australian drug market.”
“In Australia the police['s] impact on the drug trade … has been minimal.”
“… our young people can and do purchase illicit drugs with ease and generally with impunity. If this is an effective policy at work, I am not sure what failure would look like.”
“The more liberal approach to drug policy in Switzerland and Portugal in the past 20 years appears to have achieved many benefits with no serious adverse effects.”

But, wait, there’s more:

” I have found it difficult to find informed commentators willing to support the present drug policy”

Mick Palmer is saying that people who support prohibition are uninformed.

So, yes, support for the above-mentioned raid is even more retarded than the guy with literacy handicaps.

Diminishes the resources and market monopoly of outlaw gangs and legalize it .. oh, and impose a tax on it just like we do booze and fags.

Better yet .. let the family groups run the show, it’s clearly working.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the world…

“… analysts project that that tax revenue could generate somewhere between $5 million and $22 million a year in the state.”

…instead of costing us the wages of 17 police for the several days (some of them months) they will be working on the Bandidos lair.

It’s funny – we had this stupid, unworkable, and utterly failed prohibition foisted on us by the Yanks, and it’s american States that are taking on the DEA and Federal government over this, while we do nothing to fix this stupid policy.

“Deputy Attorney General James Cole, [said] “We’re going to take a look at whether or not there are dangers to the community from the sale of marijuana and we’re going to go after those dangers,”

Duh! The dangers are entirely a direct result of the failed policy, not of the drug the failed policy was aimed at.

You would have thought that having a black president for the last 4 years would have woken up some of these idiots…..

I’m not sure that the colour of the President’s skin has anything to do with anything, but things are changing dramatically over there with various states legalising marijuana and gay marriage. It’s so embarrassing to be left so far behind by the US!

Speaking of which, I see they’ve given Julia a slapping for cutting defence spending. Expect to see the cuts reversed very quickly.

Yep, legalising it makes a lot of sense – then the Government can expend all their time and energy trying to ban it all over again after they ‘discover’ all the negative benefits to smoking pot – lung cancer, brain function impairment, damage to unborn babies, further loss of productivity through pot smoking-breaks, extra costs on healthcare……….

Sound familiar to anyone? Mind you, if the big tobacco companies get onboard, none of the above concerns will be an issue at all, will they? Product diversity is the name of the game, and I am sure that many of these large tobacco corporations will be more than happy to put their name on the packets of Australia’s finest green leaf. Just hope and pray that 50 years down the track people don’t start whinging “but I didn’t know it was harmful – nobody warned me, I want compensation, etc”.

Yeah, most of the pot smokers I have met are the most relaxed and easy going people around – just don’t expect them to have a very good short-term memory for anything that is actually important or be very reliable at work if they’ve been moderate to heavy users for much of their life.

A major motivating factor in prohibiting Cannabis was a purely racist desire to criminalise the black community.

Sounds like you’re describing alcohol there. Remind me how prohibition of alcohol went?
