33. My main point is, here in the US it's really about the 4th Amendment, bottom line.

As for the other scenarios:

One, pot should be legal. I'm not going to exercise my brain trying to contrort ways to figure out how governments can piss away tax dollars "legitimately" snooping around for a benign fucking plant. They should find other things to worry about. Period.

And honestly, even with the rest of it, (ignoring the scare quotes on "private land") I really have trouble figuring out why governments should be worrying about any of it. You'll note that even with the pretty fucking wide surveillance latitude they already enjoy, they can't seem to find the people who keep kidnapped women in their back yards for 10 years. But if it was a pot plant? You bet your ass they would have been all over it.
