The 17-Year-Old Drug Kingpin

A certain 17-year-old high school student near Cincinnati, Ohio, certainly has a zeal for entrepreneurship: he has managed to juggle academics and run his own multimillion dollar business. Meet the 17-year-old drug kingpin:

Ohio police have arrested an alleged drug kingpin, a 17-year-old accused of running a multimillion dollar ring that distributed high-grade marijuana through two school districts and netted $20,000 a month.

When cops raided the boy's bedroom at his parents' home, they found over $6,000 in cash, prosecutors said.

Marijuana growers don't pay for the electricity they use. Maybe if they did, their argument for legitimacy could be taken slightly more seriously.

Yeah, just legalize it already. I don't smoke it, but seriously don't see it as a big deal and hell.. the government could make a ton of money selling it legally to people.

So the mother never noticed the electric bill was suddenly a LOT more than it was before?

If I were running a multi-million dollar growhouse business I might just find some teenagers to sell "franchises" to...let them do the work, give them a cut, and let them take the fall since they would be tried as minors.

There are a large number of under age "drug kingpins" that start the business hen they are 16 and end it at 17 years and 364 days.

I will leave it to you to figure out why.
