That is funny because your isp is not one used in the Hockey area. Not by RCN or Verizon hence I believe you are a liar. If you did live in Hockey you would know it is spelled Hokey. Just peddle your bike down by the ball field. It appears you are the one with mental problems

All my neighbors here in Hockey have bikes. That's how I know that all bikers have serious mental problems, especially if they skip their medication which happens quite often.
And, BTW the Harley owners have the MOST serious mental problems being 100% psychopaths with paranoid delusions of grandeur.
These are FACTS so a simple name calling asswhipe idiot you needs to go get a dictionary and look up all the big words here (you will probably see your picture next to schizophrenia).

So you can't spell it either. I think you have been breathing too many fumes from the cement plant or hanging in the mall parking lot sniffing the gas tanks too long. I knew a skank who sounded just like you in Copley who rode the back of a Harley behind a guy who used to run around on her when he wasn't beating her backside. You sure it's not you?
LOL! Just your handle pretty much put wants me to put your dumb-ass comments on "ignore". Remember that button?!? OMG! Bring it back!

<quoted text>I do not know this person or pretend to know anything about this situation. What I do know for a FACT is that cannabis is not a drug who will make one violent, and do crazy things. If anything it relaxes you and makes the user more peaceful. I say there is much more to this story. Just remember that if you poke anything with a stick long enough, it will attack sooner or later.
The media once again is pushing propaganda, the recent studies and results about the effects of marijuana my the medical community(because the results show it less harmlful than alcohol and tobacco, and less addicting, and more effective as a medication than many products already out there legally) has got the media pushin the reefer madness trip again. Acouple of weeks ago when the threads were complainging about the police DUI checkpoints, immediatly in the following week there was a slew of DUI arrest postings, of the .08 to .1 level.( someone who uses alcohol on a regular basis is not even effected by these low BAC levels)But the media found the need to dig up these arrest records from as far back as July and post them in the police section. Do not let their propaganda win, do your own research. The media spin on things is not the gospel.
I agree. MJ, if decriminalized, would cost big pharm untold trillions because people would be able to grow their own medicinal herb to take care of whatever ails them - migraines, chronic pain, shingles, MS, digestive disorders, fibro, high blood pressure, muscle spasms/tremors, and the like would all be managed with home grown.

Henry Ford built his first car entirely out of hemp, a cousin of MJ, and it even ran on fuel made from hemp.

All these global warming alarmists should be the leaders in gettng hemp back into use for everything from textiles, paints, papers, FUELS - all 100% biodegradable and renewable.

Research it on your own and find the many uses for hemp and the medical uses of mj.

The Example this so called man has impressed on his 2 boys.He lets them live in squaller while he Abuses his wife.This article has a huge hole in it .I don't know of anyone who ever said one good word about this Father Mr Langley!This man does not care for his children as he stated. This man is the one who needs to be in jail and behaviorial theropy. People!! This News Article is not what happened !!!
Josh is the most Loving ,giving,caring gentleman for a tall guy and as skinny as a string bean had to defend himself against his abusive Father. Josh was not only greeving the loss of his best friend and also an ex fiance that
he still loved leading him on all the time . The Mother was right there during the altercation what did she do??
Obviously nothing !! to stop them from beating on each other
Do they mention Josh was in a behavior hospital and the Father wanted to send him away out west to live with an alcoholic uncle? No! I can go on, but lets see what all you other "better than thou" People can say .I say "We Love you Josh"

Wow, you must be that skank who was being ridden around. You really have a bad taste in your mouth for bikers. No wonder your man ran around on you, you sound like a basket case that he couldn't wait to unload.Thats OK, most of us have no use for cum receptacles like you anyway.

The weed is what kept this kid mellow. Big mistake by Dad. Probably worked better than any Pharmaceuticals the kid was on.

You've got to be kidding. The "personal property" is illegal, for one thing, and destroying it in no way justifies the vicious beating. The article doesn't say where this happened. If it happened at the father's house, then he was perfectly justified in destroying the drugs to protect himself from a possession charge.
I'm just stunned to see people defending the 23 year old "adult" in this case. Respect a fellow adult, this poster typed. Do adults attack their parents for preventing them from using drugs? Criminals do that, and this "adult" got what he deserved and should have received a longer sentence.
No ones being kidded. I 'didn't justify the beating" as my own solution in a former post.Don't imply it again. I do say he has a right to be angry and to not have his property destroyed. What would you do the day prohibition started and your new designer homebrew equipment was stolen by feds ( valued at 140$) You'd be pissed off too. Prohibitionists get more users AND feds killed than drug users alone. The crime around drugs is for the purchase , not the actual usage. THats why I say , grow your own for the whole societies safety.

Personal property is personal property. Illegal or not. Had one adult respected the other , anger wouldn't have happened. flushing someones buds sack would anger a sane cannabis user all on its own. If the 23 year old truly does have schizophrenia , he probably is unable to as easily control his anger.

As far as labelling criminals....
If you took away a medication that was working for me, why would I care what the other society's morals are. The propaghanda about cannabis has been lies and its been enforced by liars. We live in a nation of war criminals and torturers even after WW2 decided waterboarding WAS TORTURE. If we're talking about criminals , the priorities start at the white house.

Maybe jail and rehab will turn your life around,then you will rethink what you did in your life,and how you got to where you are today.
I dont recall anyone being murdered for a weed fix. your retarded, don't talk about stuff you don't know. Josh, you're in our hearts, R.I.P. Kyle, you'll never know how much you meant to us.

As long as I knew Josh... never would I expect that. He was honest and caring. It's really hard when your best friend tries to hurt themself. My best friend of more than ten years broke my heart with suicidal threats and it has ruined a part of my soul along with hers. Maybe growing up listening to Marilyn Manson or Curt Cobain didn't help. I had a huge crush on Kyle, and we looked alike. But growing up in that old area was not anything of a regular childhood. Our air was polluted on or way home from school. We had strangers trying to talk to us who were A. from the mental ward or B. a child abducter. We never felt safe. When we were little we both had speech problems. I had ear tubes and had a hard time hearing when I was a tot. I never considered this guy a cook.. I did consider Jon a cook for kicking at my chair from behind in school, invading my space, going in my locker, finding mu address phone number and email and stalking me by foot or electronically and being violent.. My parents had no idea I had a stalker and decided to get me checked by a psychologist.. Everyone in town knows what happened with that. The kids all thought I was on heroin..... One sarcastic answer to a very irrekevant, absurd question and pills I went on. Not even miscommunication, it was straight up pedophilia. I went from nurturing and loving full of sunshine to never going outside and emailing my best friends hate letters about playtonic fuckheads.. on medication.. It made me want to hurt others, it made me think that there were old people raping me... That is why I am not on medication. Most of my friends had breakdowns after tey found out what happened to me.. Those pedophiles molested and raped me and trying to get help turned into malpractice. Josh heard about that. Everyone knew. Most of us were pretty stressed out. Then the one place where we think is safe in our town is now open to pedophiles and stuff. People sometimes do stupid things. Maybe if we lived in a nicer community altogether. I didn't read that there was a broken rib cage. I pray for the Langleys. People are people, always. I'm sorry this happened.
