JOPLIN, Mo. -Some people won’t be getting the Christmas presents they were expecting.

Missouri troopers seized about 20 pounds of marijuana from a car this week — some of it in luggage, and some in boxes wrapped as Christmas gifts.

Narcotics Resources

The Highway Patrol says troopers found the marijuana in the car they stopped for speeding on Interstate 44 near Joplin.

Two California women in the car gave troopers permission to search the vehicle. Both were charged Tuesday with one marijuana-related count and released on $1,000 bond.

    Good job by the officers, but why is it so easy to get out after that much marijuana?

    This is not too hard to figure. The "messaih"...wants all these type of offenses dismissed. Liberals....politicians, judges and even othe leos....worship at the feet of their "annointed one". Eric Holder...the so-called, "top cop"..in the US. has his agenda. Meaning conservative law-abiding American citizens who owns guns and Bibles. Go to tea-party rallies and are fed up with corruption from everywhere and everyone. What I can't figure out is this? Why do the rest of the LEO's...allow liberals to be part of you? Your own chain of command....stick it to you hard enough...day in and day out. Who do you boys and goes girls..really think support you? Duh... If you have to serve with a leo who is a liberal..fine. But you do not have to talk with "it"..unless duty-related conversation. You do not have to go to "its" BBQ's. Or socialize with "it"...at all. You folks are cutting your throats. If you are a liberal and a leo...you are no better than your "messiah"...or Al Sharpton. Birds of a feather flocuk together. Hmmm...wonder how long this comment will remain here? Diversity...is only when you agree with the politically correct. Because obviously...LEO's are'nt able to be think for themeselves...just follow the party line. For those of you who truly are....LEO's, God bless and watch your back.

    Sounds like good basic police work and kinda poor court work. Released on $1K bond? Isnt that pocket-change for serious dopers? Good job, Missouri troopers!

    No marijuana Brownies for the Holidays? With $1000 bond there no time for Santa's Suprise. Santa is singing Woe, Woe, Woe instead of HO,HO, HO.
