These suspects landed in a sticky-icky situation.

Cops arrested two men and a woman on Saturday after raiding their Crown Heights drug den and uncovering six laundry bags full of pot and $931,000 in cash.

Police stormed the suspects’ Montgomery Street building between Troy and Schenectady avenues at 10 pm after receiving a search warrant, where they discovered 97 pounds of weed stashed throughout the home, authorities said.

Cops also found three scales and a money counter beside the stacks of bills, according to court documents.

And amid the refer and cash, authorities uncovered two children, aged two and five, who belong to at least the female subject. She has since been charged with child endangerment in addition to criminal possession, sale, and use of marijuana, according to a report.

Police also charged one of her alleged accomplices with criminal possession, sale, and use of marijuana, and the other with criminal possession and sale of marijuana and criminal use of drug paraphernalia, according to court documents.

Reasonable discourse

HONEY Pooter from Williamsburg says:
They are running a business - this is NOT illegal!! Money is not illegal ! Pot is not illegal anymore ! People smoke it all the time, and it's better for you than alcohol ! Just make them pay taxes. You don't go and arrest a bar because they have lots of money and mind altering substancrs.

What part of ILLEGAL do you potheads not understand? Marijuana is illegal in NYS. Should people be allowed to walk around with a 9mm in their waist because it’s ok in Texas? Thank you to the heros of the NYPD for getting this filth off our streets, and away from our impressionable children.

How about this, Morris? In this state, cannabis is legal. We don't put people in jail for smoking a harmless nonaddictive plant. More people are dying of opiate overdoses than auto accidents and gun homicides combined. Perhaps it's time to focus on that? But wait, the pharmaceutical industry is making too much money selling those dangerous, addictive drugs to your children. Better to get rid of the competition, as we see here.

You live in a police state, and your lives are controlled by oligarchs who view you as cattle to be slaughtered. Let's discuss.

Henry Ford from Bay Ridge says:
What state do you live in, K? Marijuana is surely not legal in New York, nor will it ever be. As far as opiates go, I agree. The government should certainly go after pharmaceutical companies, as well as the dealers and smugglers killing our people. That is the biggest reason to build the WALL. This does not mean we should leagalize marijuana and make our country even dumber and less motivated.

K. from ArKady says:
In your case, the precursor to full legalization (medical marijuana licensing) has been in effect since 2014. Here, cannabis has been fully legal for about 2 years now. People here are just as incurious and ignorant as they always have been, nothing changed, we just don't pack our prisons with marijuana smokers anymore. One thing that was illuminating: after legalization it turned out just about everyone you knew smokes or smoked the stuff.

So, to recap: make something that just about every citizen does a felony, then you have a nation of felons. That's a police state. QED

As to the wall, you need to flesh that one out for me. What are your hopes and dreams with respect to the wall? There were claims it could be made high enough that a sack of drugs could not be thrown over it, and that it could be transparent(!) and powered by solar cells(???). Tell me more about this wall thing, Henry!

K from ArKady is right! They let doctors inject our children with deadly vaccines, so how is this any worse? Look at all the autistics that are everywhere - ever wonder how they got that way?? It's not from smoking doobies!! Vaccines people!!!

There is nothing sadder than a junky, Sam. Dry out, you'll feel a lot better and you won't end up dead from an OD. Try some marijuana, your last mayor Mike Bloomberg swears by the stuff.

"Marijuana is surely not legal in New York, nor will it ever be."
