    Perhaps you could contact Richard Branson so that you could make some money with them.

    The feds are still busting medical cannabis sellers in California where it is legal, so they are pretty likely to go after cannabis for recreationa use in the newly legalized states to assert their authority.

    The feds are busting people who smoke pot on federal land where they have full jurisdiction. So be careful if you go on vacation or camping in national parks, on BLM or federal land because you could go home on probation.

    They would more likely be looking for people who have anti-aircraft guns. Drones fly at the same altitudes as conventional aircraft.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Predator drones and their offshoots fly at the same altitudes as conventional aircraft. Many others do not, and I'd wager that a good helping of 00 buck would be quite enough to disable them.

    It's also a good way to guarantee spending a third of your life in a federal prison.

    Something tells me that the first guy who does it is going to be hailed as a hero in spite of what the government thinks. Then, of course, more people will do it. Tends to be how things work in situations like these.

    Deliberate destruction of government property, or righteous civil disobedience? Personally, I think the drones are unreasonable search because no warrant was issued, and unconstitutional laws should be disobeyed until repealed. But this has a public safety issue that sort-of muddys the water.

    Not a good idea. What goes up, must come down.... bullets included. Hit it with a laser instead.

    A lot of dumbasses serving hard time are considered "heroes" by extremists.
