Imagine if all that pot in the house went missing? Someone steals it? Do you really think violence would not happen? People would not get hurt? Drugs hurt people and destroy lives... Peace Love Dope...They owed big $$ to someone for all that stuff.... get it off the streets. I don't think anyone mentioned is a bad person, just bad choices.

I have never heard of anyone overdosing from smoking a joint. And even tho it may be illegal now- it won't be 4 ever... Especially since they are legalizing it 4 medical purposes. & sharon- its not ur son.. Soooo Maybe we should question ur parenting considering ur judging people u know nothing about.

Ask yourself this in five years or so when marijuana is completely legal will these two be looked at as vilians still ? I look at it as being similar to the probation days when bootlegging alcohol was illegal thing to drink .for all you race fans rum running was the start of NASCAR
