Its neat to use big numbers for an incredibly small amount of a pot. Why no story of only half a lbs of marijuana found in a group of 20thousand hippies?
How about alcohol?

200-grams of pot... less harmful than alcohol or tobacco. Why is this even news? How many DUI's were issued after the concert? Any? Or are those not as important as the 200-grams of pot? Seriously, if our efforts were actually focused on the important things, the world would be a better place.

That's embarrassing....that's it @ a Phish concert? Was there only one officer?

The Walworth County judicial system yet again has made a complete fool out of our County. ANYONE knows if you want to get into trouble, go to Walworth county. The police here are USELESS. The big picture is never a factor. I agree with "Really" above. Maybe if they started concentrating on the bigger picture, this area wouldn't be going to hell!

I wouldn't go to a concert at Alpine Valley these days on a bet!!! Last time we went to a Buffet concert (10 years ago)there were so many cops I couldn't believe it. You cant have fun anywhere anymore. There is no such thing as a cop giving anybody a break anymore. All they care about is their numbers and how good it looks on paper.
