You do realize that history is going to paint us all with the stupid brush for believing that marijuana is the Devil's Weed.

They are gonna laugh and ridicule like we do about the Flat Earth.

I think we are loosing perspective here.

The LEO was disrespected and he need to get vengeance for the improper attitude.

Also he got a felony arrest to show he is doing his job properly.

I don't think the guy was ever arrested.

DubyaHater: I am 33 years old, and I honestly think pot will be legal in my lifetime. I don't smoke it, but it should be legal. Regulate it like alcohol and just just be done with it already.


I don't have a problem with people smoking, but G-d do I hate weed "culture."

If he didn't get arrested I am blown away, different state procedures I guess.

Nope.

C'mon, people, eating it does nothing. You have to sautee it in butter so the volatile oils dissolve the active ingredients.

Legalize pot, but still throw potheads in prison. The Todd Barry solution.

Horrible idea. You're punishing them for the crime of wasting resources, but your proposal is a colossal waste of resources!

We should be sending them on manned flights to Mars.

How else will we figure out what technology will eventually be necessary to keep someone alive on Mars?

The non-volatile oils will do that too.

He sounds soft on crime. Millions of dollars is a small price to pay to lock up a productive citizen for doing something that hurts no one.

Americans being reasonable... well I suppose it's never too late to be surprised at something.

Wow.

Not all of the potheads, just the dirty hippie freaks.

In Colorado, if you're seen smoking in public by the fuzz, it's a coin flip if they will even ask for your card. Unless you're smoking in a non-smoking area, then you're farked.

Yeah maybe. I just can't abide the white boy dreads and endless droning about Rasta even though they are unable to talk intelligently about it outside of they smoke weed. The Bob Marley shirts, more droning on about how great hemp is, hemp jewelry, head shops, jam bands, naming of pipes/bongs, incense, etc. However, my disgust of Trustafarians aside, criminalizing home use is ridiculous and a huge waste if resources.

that and allow them to grow it for personal consumption.

If it gets legal here I'm gonna grow some serious trees along the fence next to my a-hole neighbors who called the police because I was smoking a left handed cigarette in my back yard.

/farking Texas


Tell me about it, the local cops actually raided my house so they could give me a paraphernalia ticket. Fark texas.

Hobodeluxe: wouldn't it be cool to be a rich guy and be able to own a cropdusting plane and fill it with seeds and fly around the country playing Johnny Potseed? Imagine it growing wild everywhere.


You know how I know you have never been to the midwest? Christ, the stuff clogs up the irrigation ditches and drainage systems if you ever slack off the fight.

DrewCurtisJr: Or the trunk. But what are the cops supposed to do? You know how many times they hear, "That's not mine officer." when a search turns up something?


My stock response is boo hoo, no one said a cops job has to made easy for them. Especially for small time drug offenses and other victimless crimes.

If you think about it there are two types of crimes, those where there is a victim or a victims family who in the absence of justice will seek retribution. It's a serious matter when people that commit those crimes are allowed to get away with it. Because it undermines society and the power the state.

Crimes where the primary victim's are mostly people involved, prostitution, drug use, or the offenses aren't serious, etc are much less important to prosecute. If anything the cops should be just try to keep things to a dull roar. Society isn't undermined because someone got away with smoking a joint, got told to knock that shi'it off by the cop instead of arrested.

I wonder how the cops imagined this would be prosecuted?

If the police had told him to stop what he was doing, maybe.

But, otherwise, how could they prove it was evidence of some unlawful activity if they couldn't examine it.

That's something that got me about Michael Phelps, the Olympic swimmer, and the bong picture.

OK. You got me holding a bong. Do you have any evidence there was marijuana in it, or that I smoked it?

When are we going to play the shell game where the new war on drugs is against meth and we go ahead and just legalize pot?

Eh... except for marijuana, tobacco and alcohol use (among 18-25 year olds) being correlated to greater probability of getting into prescription drug abuse...

I can't believe something like this went as far as the DAs office.

A kid I know ate a joint when he saw a cop approaching him outside of a dorm where a large party was being held. Deputy Dawg (campus police) arrested him on charges that he smelled like pot, had red eyes and was going to hold him until he passed the evidence, or as the cop said 'until he pooped'. Not a word was said about being under the influence, acting high etc. When his supervisor read his report early the next morning they decided it wasn't such a good plan and cut the kid loose.  I still can't figure out wtf the cop expecting to find.

He wanted to see Jebus in the scat.

If I was the supervisor I'd have made the cop go through with his cunning plan.
