The crew apparently stuck around for hours working with the various officials trying to work this out, which I assume would have included calls to both the supplier and customer, but were still arrested.

What's telling to me is that they were offered the chance to leave, but authorities wanted to keep the truck.   If were not about forfeiture, the cops could have simply recorded everything, taken a sample of load, and sent them on their way.  Charges could be pressed later, if needed. But then the locals don't have the truck to sell later.

There is no way a law enforcement person could possibly think that was actual marijuana for distribution. I mean, look at it.  At "best", they may have thought they could gin something up related to the THC content not testing low enough, but that's a stretch.   They just wanted to keep the truck, or they are complete idiots, or both.


PAWHUSKA — Osage County’s district attorney dropped the marijuana trafficking case against two drivers of a hemp shipment seized in Pawhuska, but the security personnel who accompanied them continue to face prosecution.

“We have an individual grower who was from the state of Kentucky, who’s not licensed in the state of Oklahoma, who has not conformed with our laws. And federal law provides us some control over that,” Osage County District Attorney Mike Fisher said in reference to his stance that the cannabis material is not legal hemp, which requires no special transport licensing.
The Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018, more commonly known as the Farm Bill, removed hemp from the Controlled Substances Act effective in December; it does not impose prohibitions on transport or shipment of hemp across state lines.

Attorney Matt Lyons, who represents Ross and Dirksen, contends the two had the appropriate paperwork to help monitor the shipment until its end destination. The U.S. military service veterans now face charges, he said, that carry between 15 years and life imprisonment.

All 60 samples in the truck were tested by Redlands University here in the state of Oklahoma, and those results were the reason we chose to proceed,” Fisher said.

"Everything's bigger in Texas!"

Some people I know on a couple of other forums actually plan their trips so they can stop at one of their locations.

I read this article and it reminded me of this thread:

https://www.texasmonthly.com/articles/buc-ees-the-path-to-world-domination/

They are expanding their inconvenient store empire outside of Texas. On one hand they're providing a clean place with great food options for travelers, on the other hand it is banking on the culture of excessive consumption and sprawl (although typically built on highways in the middle of nowhere). Also, they pay and treat the employees very well.

68,000 square feet is getting close to a typical Walmart store size (101,000 ft2) and much larger than the vast majority of retail stores. Crazy that they've made this work as a successful chain. I know when I've been, it has added nearly an hour to the trip. That's a long stop, especially when splitting up 1-3 hour drives between Austin, Houston and SA!

I saw this pic on FB from St Paddy's Day taken from the rooftop bar at the Indigo.  Made me think how much better this view would be with this development taking over that huge parking lot.  Fingers crossed this one can get off the ground, and hopefully will still include a full service grocery store.

Cosentino's in KC's Power & Light District would be a nice grocery store addition.

That is the type of development I would like to see replace Promenade Mall.  Maintains its retail component but significantly less so and more concentrated in one avenue, with apartments, hotel and office.

Their streetlights dont seem to put much light on the streets.  The shielded bollard lights are a good idea, though.

Huge mixed-use project at NW Expressway and Penn set for rezoning
Published on 03-21-2019 06:34 AM - OKCTalk News:  https://www.okctalk.com/content.php?r=604-Huge-mixed-use-project-at-NW-Expressway-and-Penn-set-for-rezoning

On March 28th, the planning commission will consider applications to rezone several large tracts at the southwest corner of NW Expressway and Pennsylvania, a key step towards a huge proposed mixed-use development.




A group led by Tulsa developer Ryan McNeil looks to demolish two large office complexes and a handful of homes and replace them with a complex that would feature a movie theater, hotel, apartments, restaurant, retail and office space and structured parking.

OKCTalk was first to report on the plans last July when neighbors in the area were being asked for their support.

Titled Penn Central, the conceptual design by architects Wakefield Beasley & Associates is similar to Avalon in Alpharetta, Georgia, a popular and acclaimed mixed-use project that was designed by the same firm.

Under the plan, NW 50th would be realigned to tie into an existing light on Penn that currently leads into 50 Penn Place. New vehicle access would also be added from east-bound NW Expressway.

If passed by the planning commission, final approval by city council would be required.

WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump's posthumous slam on Sen. John McCain flips reality on its head when it comes to who gave veterans the option to see a private doctor at public expense.

"McCain didn't get the job done for our great vets," Trump said Wednesday. "I got it done."

Actually, McCain got it done.

Trump routinely takes full credit for enacting the Choice program, ignoring the fact that it was signed into law by President Barack Obama in 2014.

Patric is your guy!

It took three planning meetings before I find PSO is handling everything.  Never hurts to try, though.
