...With Bear in handcuffs and Marcella being detained, a small group of officers, led by Sheriff Chuck Rolland, conducted a warrantless search of the home on the pretext of "clearing" it.
As the video record of the search illustrates, the officers were not looking for a concealed threat to their safety. They made little effort to clear the corners or to inspect potential hiding spots. However, they were very interested in finding evidence of marijuana use – lifting and sniffing ashtrays and going through personal effects. After going upstairs they found what they believed to be a "grow room."
"We’ll have to get a warrant for this," one of them remarked.
"We found your grow room," Lt. Timony told Bear after the officers emerged from the home a few minutes later.
"You found our tomato plants!" Bear responded, pointing out that the supposedly suspicious "grow room" was actually an aquaponics system of the kind he had described to an indifferent Emmett City Council just a few months earlier.
Although Bear admitted that he does occasionally use marijuana to treat lingering chronic injuries – the most serious of which he received, ironically, as a police officer when he was stabbed by a shoplifter in 1982 – he hadn’t smoked any that morning. (red-bold emphasis added by Citizen)
Ooo. Tomato plants. Bwahhahhahahahahhaahha!!!!
Enough fun and games. That they consider being a constitutionalist dangerous says it all. In the words of Ron Paul, "Truth is treason in the empire of lies."
