Opening Arguments


Good old Hoosier family values:

Here's a tip for would-be marijuana cultivators.

Don't display your plants in the open windows of houses visible from heavily traveled streets.

Winchester residents Glenn E. Younker, 51, and his son, Jeremiah J. Younker, 26, were arrested Saturday after city police saw marijuana plants, some of them as high as five feet tall, "in plain view" through a second-story window of their apartment in the 500 block of North Main Street.

And these guys are clever as well as smart. Dad says he was just minding the plants for his brother and had "no clue" about what kind they were. Son says he knows nothing about the contents of the apartment's second floor, only going up there "for the bathroom."

Gee, Leo...kinda shoots down that argument that marijuana does NOT kill off brain cells, and has no "real" harmful effects on cognitive abilities, doesn't it?

Marijuana laws are foolish and ineffective.

They may be foolish and ineffective, but until the legislature changes that, Dim & Bulb (above) might want to move the plants AWAY from the window.

Gee, maybe I'd better disassemble that still sittin' on my back porch . . .
