....but also struck me as way overkill for a simple drug charge. (For marijuana none the less. I think I heard something about suspicions of meth, but the current warrant was only for the MJ.)
You wouldn't say that if it was you who had to go into someone's home where a shotgun or pistol was waiting on the other side of the door.
It's incredibly naive of you to not realize that most dealers are armed.
And now you should think about how you could have had bullets from the dealer and his friends slamming through your door and walls, or the toxic and explosive consequences if he was cooking meth over there....
