I have a quiz for you. Who should stay in prison longer? a person who raped your ten year
old daughter or sold your teenage son $350 worth of marijuana?Give up? I knew this was too easy. The man who sold your son the "pot" is FAR" more dangerous than a mere rape
of a minor.
Weldon Angelos was 24 when he sold a small amount of marijuana to an undercover cop.
Weldon had a gun but never used it. Federal drug laws called for a minimum 55 year sentence. The Judge was stunned when he handed down the sentence, petitions have been sent,President Obama is aware of Weldon but has yet to pardon him. Rand Paul,Senator from Kentucky has asked for his release. Senator Paul and I agree on nothing,I thought. I was wrong.
For at least 10 years, I have purchased marijuana from people I know that grow it.
Soon it will be legal in Washington State to possess 1ounce of "pot"and more of a liquid form. Everyone I know wants it to be illegal again and just sold as medicine.
I can make a phone call and have marijuana delivered. I am nobody special,if your a certain age,a Vet who knows another Vet,you could always buy pot. I remember one time years ago,when a younger brother of the seller I knew showed up with a stranger.The stranger was flashing rolls of hundred dollar bills. He wanted me to help arrange a 2 pound sale. I laughed so hard, I had to change my pants. I calmly told him that would be illegal, and I was getting ready to call the police. I never
talked to the family again.
We now enter 2014,nearly 4,000 people are in prison for life for 3 strike non-violent
drug offenses says the Huffington Post.Martha Stewart came out of prison saying how stupid it was to have Women locked up for drug laws.
Legalize marijuana in all 50 states. Keep drugs like heroin and methamphetamine illegal. I have seen what meth and heroin can do to people,(my own son) If you sell
methamphetamine, I would put you in prison for life, and I would NEVER let you out.
Cigarettes kill over 400,000 a year.Can you imagine if ANY product in this country
was doing that to people,the uproar? The product would be banned,Senators would give speeches,Issa would hold hearings.Marijuana kills no one, and we put sellers of that product in jail.
Recently Congress reduced food for the poor. Now ,un-employment benefits for over
a million folks are being taken away. Republicans cry that they have no money to continue both programs. Like HELL they don't. Let all marijuana folks out of jail. You will have plenty of money to feed people and give folks their un-employment back.
