All these years of announcing pot house busts in Elk Grove seem to be the low hanging fruit. The pictured persons arrested appear to be the hired help who get boarding privileges. What about the kingpins or organized syndicate who are organizing the operations and raking in the big profits?

I will vote for the sales tax increase because the city promises stronger neighborhoods!
