Bond for each was set at $1,000.

    BOOHOO IS THAT THE WAY YOU THINK BEFORE OR AFTER YOU TOKE ON IT.

    Wow! Two more lives ruined by this horrendous war on drugs. These substances are more harmful to the human body than tobacco--as long as they stay in the pure form.

    Refreshing posts!!!

    usually these posts seem to be dominated by the neo-anderthal-cons who applaud the jailing of pot smokers in jail, while screaming at the top of their wheezing nicotine-tarred lungs about any proposal that would restrict them from forcing others around them to breath their 2nd-hand poison.

    Legalizing and taxing isn't as profitable as the prison industry, where they just "confiscate" cars, homes, stereo's, electronics.....Clinton "didn't inhale". Obama did. Delcaration of independence is written on hemp. Amongst the tons of people joining the ranks of the "non-achiever/slackers" is now Michael Phelps with his gold medals.

    If anything, the message being heard by our youth is: WE'RE LYING TO YOU ABOUT DRUGS. Which is really poor, considering at some point the children try something that really is dangerous, like heroin, to see if it's a lie too, and then we have dead kiddies and a more aggressive stance for the "war on drugs".
