What do you think of a famous person being felony charged & facing upto 10 years in jail for 12-15 joints worth of pot in 2012???

do recall the current president admitted to smoking weed & snorting cocaine!
I think Texas.

They're desperately clinging onto a failed "war on drugs" as though stiffer punishments for minor drug offences is in some way going to lessen the impact of crime, it's not. I do however think that pot offences down there do need to be looked at more seriously than up here. In Canada, your weed is likely grown in someone's basement and changes hands only a few times with relatively peaceful criminals. Down there that "harmless" weed is fueling a real war south of the border, I think the people smoking it and thinking nothing of it need to accept some responsibility for that violence.

Real solution? Legalize it, coke too!
