I don't understand. Why are they seizing marijuana if it's legal?

It's only legal in certain relatively small quantities.

At a guess this was seized from folks who extrapolated that into being "a warehouse of the stuff".

Let's not get crazy here.

To be legal the state needs its cut in taxes.

Well, let me tell you bout these two good ol'boys, Bo and Luke Duke. While booze is legal in these here states, them revenuers still want a piece of the sweet american pie. So they make their way, the only way they know how. But that's just a little bit more than the law would allow.

Basically.

A lib would say they aren't properly licensed by the state to grow or sell.

A conservative would say this is an example of government over-regulation/over-taxing?

usually they auction off stuff they confiscate, I cant understand why they wont do that here and let legal retailers bid on it. The city then turns a profit for the tax payers and a small business get a cheaper product.

This one is easy actually. Quality control. There's no knowing what some home-grow producer has used on the plants. You are probably safe 95% of the time, but you don't want to be in the 5%, and the police don't want to be on the end of a civil suit if you were.
