If it were made legal and regulated this sort of crime would go away very quickly.

Ever since prohibition ended, you don't hear about too many "Moonshine" deals gone bad. That said, the kid is obviously a menace. Lock him up.

This is so funny, right next to this article in the advertisements section is an ad for "harborside health center" which is a Medical Marijuana collective. :)

Lets get this over with and make the this weed legal. The fears people have about this drug are just ignorance. I've known people that smoke the stuff all there lives and yes, they have nice 6 figure jobs. You probably don't know it but your neighbor probably smokes, or the person next to you on a bus.

This war has got to stop, at least for MM. The lives this war has ruined is incredible. The millions of locked up people over this drug is saturating out Jail system.

For those of you racist concerned about the proximity to the day worker center - it is not even remotely close...if you have the ability to comment on this blog via your computer you also have the ability to look at a map. So maybe consider that before you jump to offensive conclusions!
