doglover: Good.

Now all we have to do is shoot DAs who DO think it's a good idea out a giant cannon and into the sun.


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?

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.

RabbitoGarcia: The Troof hurts: 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."

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


I'm not a big fan of the faux-rastas and white-guy dreads, but pot culture has given the world some awesome movies.

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.

TheChadnt: The fact that there is even a story suggests that someone (perhaps the police) was pressuring the DA to prosecute.


In the original story, which detailed the arrest of the dooby eating dude, a police department spokesperson basically lauded the arresting officer for his ability to turn a loss of arresting for possession into a win for tampering with evidence. The DA had no choice but to examine the case, say WTF, and drop charges.

that and allow them to grow it for personal consumption.

why the hell not, people can make their own beer

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.


Hmmmm, my mother buys/exports crop dusters to Brazil for my uncle's flying school. I've been considering learning to fly. Time to find a bulk seed provider!

/king of making really bad ideas work.

That's different. The DA can't afford expert testimony. Now he knows how most defendants feel.

Girion47: Ivandrago: I interned at the Public Defender's office this summer and I watched a felony trial where a man was prosecuted for having .15 grams of cocaine hidden in a car that he was driving that belonged to his drug dealing nephew. At first I thought I misheard the prosecutor but he said it again. I don't even know what .15 grams of cocaine looks like. Can you get high on that amount? I imagine if you had a baggie that used to have coke in it, that's the amount that would show up. The jury acquitted. All the interns thought that it was a colossal waste of taxpayer money and the court's time.

what was he supposed to do? do a search of the car prior to driving it? Making people responsible for what's in a car is utter bullshiat, you have no idea what's hidden in the nooks and crannies.


The important part is that the cops no doubt seized the car without a warrant, sold it at auction, and then pocketed the proceeds. Gotta have your priorities straight.

I thought that too when I was 33. Let's just say I'm not 33 and I don't think I'll be able to blaze it at the nursing home like I was hoping...
