KALAMAZOO, Mich. — Two men from Kalamazoo will be facing many different drug charges after a search-and-seizure Saturday night.

Kalamazoo Public Safety Officers executed a search warrant at a home in the 1500 block of North Drake Road because of an investigation that people were making and selling marijuana out of the home.

Officers found several residents inside along with over 70 marijuana plants in various stages of growth, over five pounds of process marijuana, and a large amount of money believed to be from drug sales.

A 49-year-old resident and a 31-year-old resident will be facing many drug charges.

Further charges are pending for two residents who were also in the home.

    Total waste of tax payer money and medicine. I don’t understand how police can look themselves in the mirror when they ruin lives of people that are doing absolutely no harm to anyone else. You have to be a different species to completely lack empathy like that.

    What?!?! Making marijuana? Hahaha! Way to go Heros. Raiding and abducting people for a plant that has never killed anyone. Leave these guys alone and go find some violent criminals .

      So in your mind are these people automatically NOT violent criminals because they had marijuana? You realize the illegal manufacture/sale of drugs is OFTEN associated with violence? Many times these investigations turn up the “violent criminals” that you are requesting the police go find.

      I hear the catch phrase of, “Go find some violent criminals” a lot yet those people have no clue how that’s actually done. Traffic stops, knock and talks, search warrants from reliable tips about illegal activities………yet in each of those activities the people being stopped or spoken to use that same, “Go find some violent criminals” statement.

      The police were there because of tips and complaints. Are they supposed to tell the person complaining about an illegal activity, “Sorry ma’am I know It’s illegal but it should be allowed so I refuse to take your complaint”? How furious would you be if you called the police on someone breaking the law and he just shrugged his shoulders and walked away?

        I wouldn’t call the police on someone breaking the law. 99.99999999% of laws don’t protect anyone but rather generate money for government and the ones that are needed enforce themselves. “Law enforcement and government” are a racket and when the news media paints them as heroes for stopping people that aren’t harming anyone else from doing what they want to do, it makes it difficult for those without the ability to think critically to see law enforcement and government for what it is. The more people in society that tolerate slavery, the more enslaved our society will become. The more that people tolerate police and government, the more enslaved we become. Make excuses for them all you want, but it’s your own future that you’re destroying.
