    Go ahead folks, with all your pot jokes. The kids in the area who are having serious issues with using pot is no joke. Anyone who says otherwise is simply a user justifying a habit.

    Along with this should be charges of accessory to murder, human trafficking, and aiding and abetting terrorists. Those should be standard charges for anyone caught with large amounts of drugs.
