as someone who has traveled through south east asia....<quoted text>
the usa is not the only country in the world, genius.
and yes, just for your information.. many countries in the world carry the death penalty for using or dealing with the stuff.
i know exactly what you mean.
they are WAY strickter about marijuana.
but were not in asia...
were in california..
get a grip.
the penalties have become MUCH less severe in recent years in most counties......because they simply cannot lock people up for growing, when there are so many other customers to the criminal industrial complex.
in fact, up here, they cant even lock up real violent criminals for long......
if you are here in california?? you must know what ab 109 is.
prison "re-alignment" makes it so judges cant lock too many new people up...
recenntly this chick stabbed her boyfriend 6 times(and the guy was pressing charges) and she ONLY got sentenced to 6 months in county.
locking up small time marijuanan growers??
dont be ridiculous...
there is simply no space for them.
and so it should be, as no one should be denied their freedom for which herbal medicine they choose to grow.
