Bathia_Mapes: martissimo: Unless he was stupid enough to tell the cop "yeah I ate that joint, sorry", a competent lawyer gets him off with that same 2k charge (in lawyers fees instead), but without the felony conviction and up to 90 days part.Not like they went Cheech and Chong labrador sketch style and got any evidence, could have easily been the end of a candy cane for instanceRTA. A police officer saw him eat the joint.
sauce_jenkins: Prove it. Beyond a reasonable doubt, prove it. Can't? Oh well, no case.
Cataholic: pla: FTA: "People don't understand that having the marijuana is a class 'B' misdemeanor, which is like one step above running a red light. Then when they destroy it, and they're tampering with physical evidence, that's a higher charge," Campbell said.And that right there pretty much describes one of the biggest problems with our legal system - People don't understand 95% of the arbitrary BS that can mean the difference between a small fine and 5 years in prison.If the people don't understand the law, the law, not the people, needs to change.If people can't grasp the basic concept that lying to cover up a crime is usually worse than the crime itself, we are done as a society.
