No joke there man. Every time a helicopter is sent up to patrol a wooded area costs alot of money. In the show called "Marajuana Inc" which aired on CNBC, they reported an average of $100k spent just on the air patrols alone. That's just one state, and how many states do air patrols for marajuana now? It adds up real quick. Not to mention the fuel used, and the people involved in these patrols have to get paid so right there is even more money. It makes no sense of fighting a war in which you've lost. The law enforcement agencies also know this and I wonder how many people they've let go because of this knowledge.
