Yes the young offender, some criminals utilize under aged children to carry, traffic etc for this exact reason, how nice it is that names are not published.This will ensure his classmates will not make fun of him Monday morning.(As I shake my head)

I must say first, that I do not condone anyone under the age of 19 doing drugs. It's bad for your developing brain, stop it.

Now with that out of the way, honestly if weed were legalized I bet he'd be in a lot less trouble than he is.

And there are so many reasons to legalize it. Colorado along is projected to make a tax revenue from legal marijuana just short of a Billion Dollars. Thats a lot of money to be made for the government guys, honestly lets be realistic about that.

the problem tom is that there was cocaine in the car as well...... far from the harmless potheads. I do support decriminalization of weed. There is a lot of money to be made when it does.

Reply to Tom_Bom... Agreed! They're NEVER going to win the "War on Drugs" Period. Umm, how long has this fight been going on for now? The fines get bigger, and the jail time gets longer.. costing taxpayers MONEY to keep them in there.. Doesn't cost the government anything, God NO!.. costs us money. Just makes the government & the cops money when they bust someone for weed... or cocaine for that matter! Godsakes ppl, pay attention.

Only druggies want it legalized. Will the Government make money if it was legal? Yes. But do you really think the Gov. will use that money for things like better health care, better roads, educations? Not a chance.
Crime will sky rocket it it was legal With it being illegal druggies tend to hide. If it was legal, the druggies will cause more chaos, like along the lines of breaking into peoples homes to get the stuff, assualts for people that don't pay back what is owed to a dealer, etc etc.
