    Of the unnecessary War on Drugs.

    The two Philadelphia firefighters who died on the job Friday night are to be buried this week at Forest Hills Cemetery in Philadelphia.

    …Philadelphia District Attorney Lynne Abraham says the fire began in a tangle of wires and high-powered lamps that 35-year-old Daniel Brough set up for a marijuana-growing operation.

    The FD says that the fire burned particularly quickly because the wood in the closet was dried out from the heat lamps.

    Gotta love the “if pot was legal this wouldn’t have happened” quote from the dealer.

    If pot was legal, he’d have to get a job. The black market he now enjoys would be gone.

    If hydroponics truly produce a more potent weed, Brough likely would have burned down the house with the lamps/wiring even in a pot-legal scenario.
