Every Weed Farm Needs A Good Rocket Launcher

Peace out
Here's a tip if you're planning on running a Liberty County weed farm: Get a rocket launcher.

Apparently you're going to need one, if the operation busted by cops yesterday is any indication.

Acting on a Crime Stoppers tip, law enforcement authorities raided a property near Cleveland, Fox 26 reports, and found -- in addition to the usual weed and some meth -- a nice little arsenal.

Officers told the station they discovered a stash "including, but not limited to shotguns, semi-automatic shotguns, rifles, handguns and even a L.A.W. (laws) rocket launcher."

Not a whole lot of specifics are being released about the bust, but the location also had a large amount of cash and stolen goods, police say.

Arrests were made, but names and charges have not been released.

What, no youtube link to Bruce Cockburn's 1984 "If I Had A Rocket Launcher"? So much for the myth of Rich Connelly being a culturally aware liberal. What a great song. But the parens after LAW should have read "Light Anti-tank Weapon." Pretty cool as disposable weapons go, but the reusable RPG-7 doesn't fill up the landfill with used launch tubes the way the LAW does.

Those empty LAWS rocket launcher tubes are widely available at surplus stores and would only serve as a weapon if used to bludgeon or club somebody.

I wonder if the tip came from a psychic (like the big wrong story out of Liberty a few weeks ago re:multiple bodies found).  And seriously...  a rocket launcher?  Can you buy those at gun shows now?

I have always preferred the term bazooka to rocket launcher. Bazooka is a really underrated word.

I hope so! I mean, they are critical for home defense, and you'll take my rocket launcher when you pry it out of my cold dead hands...
