I wonder how can Judge Atkins pass judgement on anyone when he allowed this to go on in his own house. There is no way he did not know about it, the son was arrested back in Dec for possession.

I view it as a personal choice and don't believe it should be illegal in the first place. Judge if you are reading this, consider this before you pass judgement on any non violent drug offerders in the future.

I feel sorry for the family. Addiction is no respecter of persons. It's a sad situation. I pray the young man is able to get some help before its too late and it destroys his life.

This isn't the first time it's happen either!! Check out the jail website! In this town of good ol' boy justice he had every opportunity to become anything he wanted! Have any job he wanted, but he chose to be a stoner? What a waste! Hopefully this time he will decide to change the direction his life is going!

I'm curious as to how this will all play out. If this is his second offense as some have inferred.
I do find it hard to believe that Judge Atkins knowingly allows his son to 'get stoned' in his home.
I wonder if Judge Atkins can dish out some 'tough love' now ..........this boy certainly needs it.

I do hope also that Judge Atkins can now look thru a different perspective, addiction is a sinister thing, and like someone else stated, is not a respector of persons...

I wondered why the cops did not take everyone in the house to jail. The hms teacher claims he was just riding to the store with a neighbor but was taken to jail. Who,s to say the son didn't,t say it was his to keep his father out of trouble. It is hard to believe that the judge did not know it was in his house. Who cleans the house? If the boy smoked it there, Adkins could not smell it. There is more to this story!!! But we will never know.

Who was hurt? Yes some material possessions may havehave been lost but havent see anywhere of anyone being hurt or killed. If he is the '"weed popper" that started the fire why was he not charged with arson too?? And no I do not "pop weed" anymore due to drug testing at my job but yes i have had my fun with it in my past.also have a couple different family members that can use it legally for various medical conditions one being cancer and yes it has helped alot more than the nasty side effects of chemotherapy.

Judge Atkins is a good and wise man PERIOD. Yes Marijuana should be legalized and YES his son should not even be charged. Our drug laws hurt us more than the drugs do. Read is a fine young man too.

Makes me sick to think that the circuit judge can get his own son out of 5 marijuana charges.
