Best Buds

Riggs and Murtaugh follow a violent case involving a drug cartel, theft, two killings and, unfortunately, Murtaugh's old T.O., Ned Brower. As the case unfolds, it turns out that Ned is more involved than just driving the cash, which leaves Murtaugh with an inevitably dangerous decision to make. Looking for back-up, the duo turns to Cruz for help. In the midst of all the chaos, Riggs continues to depend on outside vices, rather than face the reality of Miranda's death, while Murtaugh and Trish struggle to find alone time.

@besommer If Monsanto can find a way to patent weed seeds, pot will be legalized the next day ... think of it, sell one thing you own (weed) that leads to massive consumption of another thing you own (corn)

1) "Weed Thins, hunger suppressing, Indica hybrid."

"How can this be?" you ask. Cannabinoids, specifically Tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV).

"Tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV): A Cannabinoid Fighting Obesity"

Of course, high THCV strains are uncommon. California's Proposition 64, that will be on the November 2016 ballot, isn't even requiring that THCV be listed in the chemical profile of samples to be tested as per Section 26101 of the proposed legislation.

2) "So much for legalization reducing the crime rate."

Which is to be expected when the industry isn't permitted to use banks, savings and loans, credit unions, etc. Which other "legal" industries are subject to these types of restrictions?

"Most pot dispensaries are forced to be cash-only. Now they're prime targets for violent robberies"

Otherwise, having an affirmative defense for possession isn't the same as legalization. The least the writers can do is know enough about the law to create dialogue that actually reflects the law.

Nevertheless, an enjoyable episode.
