Pot activists plead guilty

Pot activists plead guilty

Postby Cactusflower » Dec 18th, 2017, 12:32 pm

Since recreational marijuana becomes legal in a few months time anyway, why are these people being prosecuted and convicted? Oh, silly me.......the government has to get their pound of flesh (revenue from fines) before it's too late.

Perhaps the particular laws they broke will still be enforced after the legalization of marijuana?

I am not sure people will see the legal pot panacea they are expecting....when this all shakes out.
Two essential strategies for success.

Isn't 'trafficking' just another word for 'illegally selling? I think you missed the point I was trying to make.

It's funny how people on here are against pot but cannot go a day without caffeine, booze, fast food prescription drugs etc, all which are far more harmful then marijuana.

Anything exceeding moderation is harmful.

The whining about being held hostage (actual words used) to pot smoke is what gets me.

When it becomes legal it will be regulated. What they did will be illegal even then. If they had done the exact same thing with alcohol they would also be charged.
Why use a big word when a diminutive one will suffice.

Why does it "get you" Horganismyhero? When people just light up without thought to how others are affected, those who can't just up and move are being "held hostage." My words. I stand by them as the truth. And it's stating facts, not "whining". So get a grip on yourself. I'm merely saying that there will be a lot more people in the same situation and it won't matter where a person moves to once this stuff is legal. The stench will be everywhere.
Our saddest days are when we add up our losses, and losses seem to be our saddest when we lose our best. Proud to be a "Leaf-licker" and I know who else is too. **smiles**

I don't think you know what being held hostage means.

Being offended by a smell and whining about it is the definition of a 1st-world problem and being overly dramatic.

You have no idea what you're saying about this matter having no investment in anything solid.

Children with asthma or other breathing issues comes to mind, unlike adults with this issues they have learned what triggers an attack.
Children have not, a asthma attack can hit a child very hard.

I suspect you really don't give a damn, you just want to get high.

Never used MJ but think what you want. I just think that people who complain they're being held hostage being the recreational activities of others are entitled beyond belief. As for asthma, anyone with this condition has been surviving with cigarette and pot smoke and car exhaust for years so i don't get the point you're making.

Most people aren't as uptight as you though, the only ones who complain about this are puritanical Christian fundamentalists or general crazy people.
