Argument Over Marijuana Quality Led to Triple Shooting

According to an arrest warrant, the triple shooting near Howard University on June 9 was over weed. The documents indicate that four men in a White Chevrolet Yukon near the corner of 8th and V streets NW were attempting to do a drug deal around 7:30 p.m. when things went sideways.

An argument ensued "over the quality of marijuana being sold," the warrant says. During that argument, Herbert Arrington allegedly pulled out a silver revolver and started shooting, wounding the three men sitting in the car with him, one in the neck. Arrington was arrested Tuesday morning. Two of the victim's sustained life-threatening wounds and a third was seriously hurt.

    Legalize it and make them grow their own to their own quality standards. That would take all the fun out of the weed game.

    Good for them! Too bad so many people lived though. Those thugs will live on to get shot at another day.

    I really would have been happier if some of those dregs had been snuffed out completely.

    'Janis', I agree with you but guess what we pay for them because having medical insurance is not one of their priorities in life, maybe they should enroll in Blue Cross, Blue Bullet Shield!

    Business deals are only deadly if the market has been forced underground. Just legalize it and watch the violence disappear.

    'Sherry', the violence will not disappear!

    Okay, watch the ASSOCIATED violence disappear.

    Think about it. These issues are related to the trade of marijuana, not consumption.
