Holy shit. This is just like a movie starring Edward Norton and, oh, I dunno, Robert Duvall.

So, unsealed court documents in the trial of Queens firefighter Patrick Murray revealed yesterday that the alleged marijuana grower (urban farming!) is a member of a lovely group of pot-growing entrepreneurs called "The Master Race" (the "master race" in this case obviously being the Irish race, renowned for its temperate approach to such things as conflict resolution and the consumption of fermented grains). The Master Race, apparently, started out in the mid-80s as a small-time crew of taggers and petty criminals, but moved up to more lucrative stuff, like drugs and stealing cars—perfect part-time work for firemen!

And even though I have a hard time ginning up outrage at pot growers, the name of that gang really gives me the heebie jeebies.
