What a horrid legal system. The guy isn't hurting anyone, and was just burglarized. Arrest the burglar.

LOL guess his memory was bad from smoking pot and he didn't remember the plants were in the closet....probably the reason he was burgularized in the first place, had drugs and someone close to him knew and broke in to steal them, he made one mistake already so I am pretty sure if his dope was the only thing stolen he wouldn't tell the police that....or maybe he would, he signed a waiver to allow them to go into his home with a crop of pot growing in a closet....
