Personally, I think 10 years is a bit excessive for growing marijuana/420, but I guess the States are a bit harsh on these matters. Do you think the penalty was fair?

At first, this sounded strange to me, but then I read more about it...
It seems this man was growing 1700 marijuana plants.  Each plant can produce thousands of $$ worth of marijuana.  That means that man had millions of $$ worth of marijuana.   I guarantee that he was not paying taxes on it.  Remember Al Capone?  They didn't put him in jail for murder, conspiracy, extortion, prostitution, guns, drugs, or bootlegging alcohol.  He was put away for TAX EVASION!  There is one thing that the government enforces rigidly.. and that is paying your taxes.  That is either directly or indirectly the reason that man got a 10 year sentence.
