The mountains near the Google headquarters in Sunnyvale California USA are full of marijuana plants every growing season. Their satellite photos hardly put a cramp on the weed crops at home. Are you worried about the police seizing private property and homes in Switzerland? Then grow your plants in the remote areas of the state parks just like the drug cartels around Silicon Valley...

In a nanny state you pay taxes to restrict your rights and freedoms.

Big Brother cannot seize private homes if they grow marijuana in places like Henry Coe State Park just down the road from the Google office. The San Francisco CHRONICLE outdoor writer wrote quite a column on the marijuana gardens a couple of years ago...

No one said they could but my point is if we were not a nanny state and let adults be adults and have their vices under mature and fair limits one could give a portion of the liqueur or pot to the government in lue of taxes and the government can sell it off or use it themselfs.

Google is going down a trail here preety soon they are going to sign contracts with the government (if not already) allowing them to invade our privacy in our homes. Guys i typed in my home address and a 3D view of my street home and cars in the drive way showed up Lol you could see my garbage cans in the back. This is getting ridiculous, i can see something big is about to happen and its going to be Chaos.

Yes when you saw your house was it in real time or was your area out of date because here we have a new police station that was built in 2006 and new walmart and they do not show up they are still empty lots plus we have snow and it shows this area in the sunner.

It is too live life too the fullest then never lived at all.

The only thing I can say to this is, LMFAO

The images on google map are at least in most cases a year out of date. When someone looks up my address they'll see all the damage that had just been done to my roof and trees right after an ice storm in December 2007. Something tells me they were watching and waiting for this crop to grow up so they'd have a real case to make. Kind of hard to prosecute someone for just having seedlings. :P

How come they haven't found the opium fields in Afghanistan, destroyed them, cut off the Taliban's cash and brought our troops home.
