Why to have more Drug Addicts sucking off the nipple?

Agree. It's ridiculous people are still being arrested for pot. Don't Wall cops have anything better to do?

People do not get addicted to marijuana. Years ago the drug zsar spent millions of dollars trying to prove they do, only to have the findings prove that they don't. I'm sure they wanted to bury the results but they had to publish them becuase of the amount of money spent. Its pretty ridiculous that pot is still illegal. Have you ever heard of anyone getting into a bar brawl after smoking a joint? Didn't think so. Belmar KT, its not the Wall cops' fault though. They still have to do their jobs.

Right, the cops have to do their jobs. If someone is driving around with pot, that's a risk they are taking.

Wondering if any of you have children, if so you would probably be a little more understanding of laws and why they are meant to be reinforced. You do realize that most people who deal pot are usually dealing other kinds of drugs. As a mom, I don't want a message being sent to my kids that some drugs are okay and some aren't. Pot is not the same as Advil or Tylenol. These pain relievers do not make your mind and thoughts seem outlandish, silly, or extra laid back with a baked, glassy eyed look. Yes, let's legalize pot and have employees coming to work like this, better yet let them teach our young. Let's face it, getting caught with pot gets you a slap on the wrist so stop whining and grow up. It's not the pot that's the big deal it's everything else that stems from it.
