    Oh yeah, and to the web editor, Kathy Hanrahan, don't you have something better to report? There was a man in the holding cells who was selling cocaine. Another man who was charged with breaking and entering. Another one who was selling heroin. I don't see them on here. Step your game up.

    Alright so, Miguel Battle here. Camynata, screw you. You don't even know me so don't talk about me ok. If your going to judge me and make assumptions about my whole life, do it after you get to know me, just not based on one biased news story published by a government sponsored station. To everyone else who was keeping it real and not hating, much love.

    to iworkandpaytaxes ... as much as you love smoking weed, let me just remind you that it is ILLEGAL..if you are 16 yrs old and you are doing something ILLEGAL, it's only right to for this kid to have to pay the consequences...I think you are the one that has to stop watching TV and reading so much **** in the internet about weed being good for you...It only makes you more stupid, at a point of making you write comments about weed being good. lol

    He must follow something right hes on the honor role. Is your child? I would hope so. Hate for your kid to have lower grades than a "stoner" who cant follow directions. What complete nonsense. You people make me sick to my stomach with your bigotry and blind hate. Get well soon!!!

    And marijuana is not a drug. Its a 100% natural plant. It grows with basil. Is basil a drug? Is paint a drug? It get you high. The ignorance is astounding.

    Are you saying "stoned" people cant follow function. I know doctors, police, and firemen that get higher than you could beleive. Youre just a propaganda puppet spewing about something you have no clue about except what the TV told you. Teachers smoke dope. When you get older you tend to hide it more. DUH! Good lord at the ignorance of our society.

    WRAL, you should be ashamed of yourself for exploiting this child for your own news ratings! I mean, seriously, does his face need to be plastered on the internet?
