(Newser) – Ah, Halloween, that special time of the year when you get an excuse to throw a party ... and in the case of one Alexander Zito, that's a party with chocolate with pot, hard candy with pot, 640 "Jolly Lolly" pot lollipops, and five pounds of plain old Mary Jane pot. Oh, and some hash and crack cocaine, probably for good measure. That's what cops say they found when they raided Zito's apartment last week during a mid-afternoon party chock full of University at Buffalo students, reports the Buffalo News. Unsurprisingly, “one of the students was so high we thought he was going to pass out,” says an officer.

Zito told cops he's been unemployed for a couple of years, but he's apparently been using the downtime to fly to California and obtain marijuana for medicinal purposes. Police say he then has it shipped via good old USPS to New York, which is decidedly less friendly toward medical marijuana. The $13,000 in cash investigators found in Zito's apartment would indicate it's not a bad little enterprise, felony drug charges not withstanding.

Growing and selling pot to kids is not cool BUT!!! It would be a better use of time if the feds spent their time dealing with all the victim based crime. COME ON AMERICA it IS SO OBVIOUS THAT certain laws are kept in place to help business like private prisons. Lets get real WE WILL NOT SURVIVE AS A COUNTRY if all the special interests that are controlling the democratic process are not put into check this country can fail and we are showing that our energy is focused on things for the wrong reasons. Stand up everyone i mean everyone and start to think a and blog about things and see how much special interests controlling everything and stop being puppets of the special interests or this country is n on its way to non existence. Perfect example of feds trying to enforce a federal POT laws in California where most people said to allow it to me be used. NOw what a joke is this democracy or is it being controlled by someone or something else. Come on feds help make this country safe anduse your time in that not that is bull sht give me a break and protect this country not rule it
