I wont till she leaves home either due to certain laws where i live thatll allow for the authorities to take my kids away over a plant. However i do not believe it should be illegal and i despise the fact that it is. All it has done so far is cause a enormous amount of tax dollars being wasted to fight and then detain perfectly cool normal people who just want a buzz off a natural plant. It will never go away people will use this stuff as long as there is dirt and water to grow it.
Now hard core drugs like meth or crack, drugs along those lines, Yes i am absolutely against those. They destroy you body, your soul and your mind.
Shame a dude who probably has never done anything violent or against the law in his life is probably gonna have his career and life ruin over some weed.

And as far as I'm concerned that amount does not make him a perfectly normal person just trying to get a buzz, those are the type of amounts that get people shot at or killed.

Pot IS NOT a "gateway drug" I have friends that have smoked for almost 10 years now and have never touched another drug....I have friends that smoke at least a couple times a week and make the deans list every semester.
Some people might smoke pot FIRST but pot isnt the reason they try something else.
If we can have alcohol and Tobacco....we can have a harmless plant.
This war on drugs has cost trillions of dollars...and to what avail?
I dont know about you but...I would rather our Police Officers be stopping violent crime than searching a car that smells like pot.
We are a very young country and we will learn just has other great countries that have been around longer than us and have learned the lessons only trial error and time can teach.
