I agree - the law is the law. Disagreeing with something doesn't change it. I personally think cannabis use SHOULD be legalised, however, I am aware of the risks involved should I choose to break the law.

Exactly. If you don't want to deal with the consequences, don't break the law. Simple. Doesn't matter what you think about it. If you think something's wrong, by all means campaign against it, but breaking the law won't help.

#39 No one said the law was always right. Society evolves and shapes. Saying "Slavery was once legal" is NOT a good argument for using illegal drugs. And even that's evolving, into legal medical use and maybe someday it'll be legal for recreational purposes all around. But don't pretend it's on the same level as legal racial discrimination/cruelty, that's asinine.

#39 I don't think anyone said that the law should be ACCEPTED, more that if you know you do something illegal that you should prepare yourself for consequences, be they justified or not. The world is far from perfect, and the laws we live by are far from perfect. Progression is slow, but it's your own fault if you're caught knowingly breaking law.

But 47, if I speed or roll through a stop, I know I'm doing something illegal and willing to risk the consequences. If a cop stops me, I know I deserve it, even if I don't agree with the speed limit or where a stop sign is placed. I have no one to blame but myself. It's the same with weed. Even if the law is stupid, a waste of tax payers dollars, and one doesn't agree with it, it's still illegal and if you break that law, you must be willing to face the consequences. You have no one to blame but yourself if you get caught. If I speed and get caught, it's not like I'm going to get angry at the cop and blame him.

I THINK this FML was about OP's ex girlfriend bragging on the web about getting his current girlfriend & buddies arrested & making money off it. Not sure why you've taken a left turn & climbed on a soapbox.

#48 This FML is from California where they have a conflicting law. State law says its allowed, federal law says its illegal. This has as consequence that people can get arrested for breaking the federal law, while getting released in court because it's legal under state law. And that ACTUALLY happens. Huge waste of money and infriction on people's freedom... So where does that fit in your equation? They are allowed to do it, it's state law. They AREN'T allowed to do it, it's federal law.

Im sorry but weed should never be legallized for recreational purposes. Weed is fine as a prescribed drug for certain illnesses, but beyond that it needlessly messes with the brain's chemistry. Alcohol is the same. The brain's chemistry is in a delicate balance and changing that balance without a legitimate medical need is dangerous. Most mental disorders are caused by an imbalance in the chemicals in the brain.

@68 Yes it does bad things to the brain, but why does that means it NEEDS to be illegal? Skydiving is waaaay more of a health-risk but that's still legal AND SHOULD be legal. Anything that has harmfull effects should have massive warning labels enforced by law, but not illegal. People can and should make their own decisions about their life. For you it's not worth it? Ok don't use it. For them it's worth it. Ok use it. People should get protected by the law but only to the point that it's not infricting on their freedom. For it to be illegal (in my eyes), it should have harmfull effects on someone besides the user or harmfull effects that are out of bounds (death, super addictive, ...) or you should have a history of serious abuse of the substance.

65, I would wonder why the Feds were involved in such a case. USUALLY, when a state law exists, state police abide by the law where as federal officials can enforce their version of it. So in order for you to be charged for breaking a federal law in a state where its legal, the Feds are involved, not the state police. This is usually in cases of trafficking and selling. So it's not the case for small time users. So have enough weed to use recreationally for yourself? Ok. Have enough to being considered "intent to sell"? Not okay. Feds won't bother with personal recreational use but will for intent to sell. Perhaps the OPs friends/gf had a little too much on them.

Pulling random shit out of your ass does not prove your point. You failed to mention that when people the laws are unjust people will fight to change them. Until then this pot law it still a law.

Reply

#48 the penalty for traffic violations are much more reasonable than drug violations. it's easier to say that you are okay with the consequences when the consequences are not extreme.

The holocaust was never legal that's a crime against humanity called GENOCIDE. Genocide was never legal bro and I'm offended you thought it was, considering I am a Jew who lost family in the holocaust

Yea everyone here is like "Yeah serves them right for enjoying themselves!" Shit just cause its the law doesn't make it wrong. No one gets harmed why should they go to prison for smoking?

Reply

She's not psycho. She's psycho-obsessed, meaning obsessed with psychos. Unless OP thinks he can just throw hyphens around without consequence. In which case I think we can all spot the real villain in this scenario.

No one deserves jail for weed. Weed suffers from the same bullshit that alcohol did in the 20s - no government regulation. Once they figure out how to profit off of it, it will be allowed everywhere.

Or carry less on them. You don't get arrested for a couple grams. They just give you a ticket and may give you a court date according to a few people I used to work with.
