There is an awful lot I would love to say on this subject. Most of it would place me far too close to a terms and conditions violation to go ahead
and say it however.
What I will say, is that the US does not have a monopoly on foolishness in law making. In the UK, if someone walks up to you and punches you square
in the head, then kicks the hell out of you while you are down, they might get six months in jail, which would be the maximum term for an assault
occasioning actual bodily harm. If a person is caught in possession of marijuana however, they could be put in jail for five years and given an
unlimited fine as well!
I find it abhorrent that merely possessing such things can draw more reaction from the legal system, than assaulting someone. Having been a victim of
a physically violent assault before, I can tell you that it is a crime which is much more serious, and has much greater victim impact issues
associated with it, than any amount of possession of a substance ever could.
