    So they arrested a bunch of 20 year old college kids for weed? What a joke! This state needs to get its priorities straight! This state needs to get out of the dark ages and quit wasting money and ruining young people’s lives! Jeez!

    The mindless narco-bots bust a dozen kids for possession / sale of marijuana. What a croc of chit. Is the community safer with these hooligans off the streets?
    One has to consider just how many of those High & Mighty kops also smoke the evil weed now and again …
    Reform our marijuana laws and put an end to this societal insult of making criminals out of those who choose to partake in an adult recreational intoxicant that is not alcohol.
