Give me a break! We arrested two guys for marijuana brownies and
marijuana butter and a few reefers (Oct. 31 news article). They are
going to be charged with felonies and possibly go to jail, ruining
their lives. Seems to me we could better spend our police time
investigating rapes, murders, home invasions, hard drug dealers and
drunk drivers who kill people. I don't fault the police. I think they
are underpaid and under-appreciated, just as I think our military is
underpaid and under-appreciated. God bless them all!

I fault the politicians who came up with the draconian marijuana laws.
I'm not so smart on my grams, but you would think these guys needed a
U-haul truck to load the brownies and butter. In fact, 950 grams of
brownies is 2.09 pounds, 510 grams of marijuana butter is 1.24 pounds
and 22 grams of reefers is 0.048 pounds.

While in Amsterdam, I found the people to be friendly, courteous and
somewhat mellow. They drove just fine and didn't fall off their
bicycles. I think we need a little perspective here!
