Move away if you "can't abide a law of the land?"... what about staying and voting the stupid law out?
The guy had a few grams of a common weed... the law should not be involved in that for so many reasons I don't know where to start.
Many laws are unjust... written badly for stupid reasons and enforced unevenly.
The laws against stealing, harming, threats and intimidation will get no flack from me... I know people well enough to be sure we need the law, but laws that diminish rights, rather than expanding rights, are wrong (as long as the expanding freedoms don't run over any individuals, that is).
Drug laws are the main thing eroding what little democracy and freedoms we had in the U.S. They're the main reason we are seeing a militarization of the police. They are worthless and do far more bad than good.
To the OP... glad you beat it. Watch your backside as the officer might be a vindictive type with not a lot of luck catching real bad guys.
