A pothead tries killing another pothead over marijuana.If this story was about alcohol instead of marijuana all the hypocrites like MADD, and the other anti-alcohol groups would be ranting and raving about the dangers of alcohol.

Where's the backlash about the dangers of marijuana?How many accidents are caused by people driving high?Everytime there is a drunk driving
accident it is front page news and the person is treated like a serial killer.

So you're saying that there should be a stepped up effort to get people that are high on marijuana off the roads?

Do you really believe these things you write or are you just attempting to be a professional troll. Weren't you the one ranting about how sobriety checkpoints are illegal? This seems a bit hypocritical to me.

No. I'm just curious where the outrage is.Because it's marijuana it's funny to people.But if it was alcohol,people would be screaming to lock this guy up for life "or the next time he will kill somebody"

You're another clown who allowed himself to be brainwashed to think that marijuana is harmless.

Lowell 4 Life,
If you knew the student who got expelled you may change your opinion. The root of this is much deeper than MJ.

He was accused? No trial yet?
I didn't realize that we punish people who have not been found guilty of anything.

What if he is found "not guilty" does he get his tuition back?
I guess I'm an old-fashioned girl who expects a trial and all that.

So wait he is banned from the city of lowell. Yet his court appearance is in lowell. Sounds like a loop hole if he doesn't want to show up to court.

Judge- I need a legitimate answer as to why you never showed up to your hearing.

Stupid kid doing stupid things- Well your honor you banned me from lowell.

Everyone I grew up with, everyone I've ever known who smokes marijuana ended up either in a low paying job or in jail.

That was lesson enough for me: pot is for losers.

Well, everybody kinda saw him doing it..lol. It's kinda like if a guy was seen by many ppl raping a little girl. Do u want to wait for a trial???

I don't think it's fair to the kid though because many ppl do worst in Lowell...and are still here.
