You don't think a felony charge and losing your right to vote for life is a tad bit extreme for possession of paraphernalia?
Yes, I do think it's a bit extreme but, like I said it is the law and until such time as it's repealed, it should be obeyed. I'm not so much against personal use of pot but, I have seen way too many times, the destructive nature that this leads a significant number into harder drugs. Should we legalize pot? To be honest, I can go either way but if it's legalized it should be regulated and enforced like alcohol and tobacco. I sure don't want the school bus picking up my kids after the driver burned a fatty after lunch.
