I'm laughing cause it's an ex-Cowboy, but still sucks cause it's another space in prison that a child rapist or murderer could be occupying. You know, somebody that really hurts people.:rolleyes:

All he did was smoke pot. A lot of it. He dealt some too. It is just pot, its not killing people. This is a waste of a jailcell that could be used for someone that is hurting people.

It's just pot. It isn't heroin or cocaine.

You can smoke weed in the Neatherlands and they are certainly a first world country. In fact, they have less poverty then we do. If someone wants to light up, they should be allowed to light up. I don't do it and I don't want to but its not killing anyone. In fact, unlike alcohol, it doesn't make people get really angry and start bar fights.

30 months is a lot, but seems to me that the law has gotten pretty tough lately and guys with lots less than that go to jail.

First, Holland has only 15 million people. I would expect them to have less poverty. Comparing the U.S. to Holland is like comparing the Soviet Union of 80's to Krokatoa. Obviously, one country is a super power and ones a small country that plays a small role in the World.


Weed does intoxicate, just like alcohol. A lot of people get killed while intoxicated by weed and driving. Also, like alcohol, a lot of domestic abuse comes from the use of weed.

Actually, a lot more domestic abuse is from alcohol. Weed usually makes people really melow, and it is a lot easier to die from alcohol poisoning then it is from smoking weed.

I felt like I was going to die from drinking too much many times, but never from (alledgedly ;) ) smoking too much (back in my crazy youth :goof: ). While smoking ganga never caused you specifically to be impaired from driving well if it was something that you did often, it could mess w/your concentration; unlikely drinking where you could plain black or pass out.

Legally speaking, there are both equally illegal to do while driving.
