Cops AND prosecutors. Surprised you don’t hear more stories about either slamming people off the road on their way home. I can’t imagine the tolerance required to deal with the outright stupidity that these folks have to swallow in their day-to-day. Sadly it will still take some more time but eventually even the most embarrassingly stupid SJW (and politician) will realize that our justice system is very badly broken (and if they are the last to realize it the pitchfork crowd will explain it to them as they toss them off the bridge). Unfortunately I believe history will repeat itself, maybe sooner than even I fear, and the change will come at the hands of a newly elected hard-core huge ‘C’ conservative government, when it does come, and it won’t be pretty. Think Andrew Sheer is scary? Not even close.

Anyone here old enough to remember the old anti-marijuana ads?
Be careful some unscrupulous dealer might spike your drink.

Rather than buy into the evils of drugs and drug dealers maybe it's time to look into why so many people are using illegal drugs and then change our approach to dealing with the problem.

I don't smoke, drink or chew and rarely hang with those who do. Just kidding, but I will never smoke again anything. There is some suggestion that the cost of legal product is out of line with the market.


Think about who will purchase legal, say six months from today. It will be the professional people who can afford their taxed smoke. The average "blue collar" or "middle class" is trying to save every extra dime, therefore they will buy what they can afford.

Just like why are all cars not BMW or Lexus...

Yes, the why and somehow address the "why".

We would agree completely that there is something missing in our super rich society that so many have to have/do/inject/smoke illegal drugs.

Maybe all the addicts need a Walk-About, or a trip through Africa, or have to complete a ritual of some sort like other societies do?

Shutting down the television networks for a year would be a good start towards ending a lot of the current societal ills and stupidity...

i dont care if he found jesus while in jail . that should have zero bearing on his legal case. there is zero historical proof jesus ever existed and god is a fairy tale. deciding you believe in some things that do not exist should not get you a lighter sentence . it should get you a psychological evaluation

He has only said. "that he found a higher power". There is no mention of Jesus or any other recognizable religion. Just a broad, non-script "higher power".
Therefore he is not committed to anything.
Since, we can not ask, (due to human rights and rights to privacy) we will never know.

He could have found his higher power to be Satin.

In that guy's case, it's going to be slippery.

Finding a higher power, god or whatever, does not remove any accountability for ones actions or consequences for those actions.
When you have to start compromising yourself and your morals for the people around you, it’s probably time to change the people around you.

I always say they saw the light, it's funny how they change when laying in the dark hiding quietly and you catch them shining your mag light in their eyes.

In court their lawyer always say, my client has seen the light! They never really tell the rest of the story or they would still be at large!! [icon_lol2.gif]
