Man jailed after trying to fool drug test twice

Apr 20, 2008 Full story: Daily Herald 10

“Clearly he was not probationable”

If at first you don't succeed, it's not always wise to try, try again. James H. Day should have thought of that last year when he tried, for a second time, to thwart a court-ordered drug test by bringing a bag ... via Daily Herald

I don't know what's worse. That we're paying for multiple drug tests, or we're housing and feeding this small-time pot smoker. As soon as he's out he'll just get high again!!! Talk about proof that controling people doesn't work! Stay tuned to the new sensation, "As the taxes rise" -brought to you by douche bags like Fair To All!

What we really need to do is look at what harm we are preventing by having pot illegal. Then we have to look if we are creating more harm through the prohibition.
Harms of smoking pot = munchies
Harms of incarcerating pot smokers = tax dollars for incarceration; criminal record prevents person from getting good job after release; wasted tax money trying to bust pot smokers; relegation of marijuana to the underground (exposing pot smokers to hard drug dealers); overcrowded prison system

I wonder which is worse?

Obviously, we need to pat down these guys, we can't afford to install "liquid detectors" at the courthouse.

For Cripe's sake, pot isn't that addictive, I cannot fathom how someone would risk EVERYTHING to smoke a little pot, just wait it out and do the right thing. Obviously, POT has completely destroyed this man's ability to think straight. Clearly not an individual who should have a job at the County Courthouse!!!! What a "dope".

a lot of young people smoke weed to self medicate from anxiety and depressed. i did. people grow out of smoking weed, if the government would just decriminalize it everything would be much better. its giving young kids criminal records they really dont deserve.

Legalize it. There is simply no rational reason why highly-addictive and violence-promoting alcohol is legal and on the other hand relaxing, relatively non-impairing Cannabis is not. No reason whatsoever except that the big alcohol companies are contributing so much to the campaigns of those legislators that keep competing and harmless cannabis illegal -- costing the taxpayer in several ways from incarceration, police, etc. to DUI's and massive spending and ruining of lives (like thi spoor guy) with criminal records for a harmless plant. Even tobacco i smuch much more harmful -- tobacco is physically addictive on the order of morphine, and causes cancer. Cannabis has been shown in studies to apparently somehow actually REDUCE the incidence of cancer in smokers!

Don't blame pot for this guys poor decisions or inability to think straight. I'm sure if you shot someone, it was not your fault it was the guns?! I think not; People think ohh look at that scuz bag just got busted for weed. What you don't see are the friends and neighbors that smoke and are smart enough to know how NOT to get caught. The cops catch the stupid, then people say "see all smokers are stupid". Legalize and issue licenses to grow and/or possess it. If you are a productive member of society and keep out of trouble...you may possess it. You over there don't have a job and are collecting welfare...you may not possess it. Simple!
