Well Mr New Mexico looks like three of your followers are in big dodo for messing with the illegal weed at Franklin college in Kentucky.I am sure all of these young kids are in pain from cancer and that is why they are getting stoned.What they need to do is kicked their stupid asses out of that school and open the door for three kids who are more responsible.

I agree with you Kentucky. If not kicked out, at least an academic probation. I wonder if they are on financial aid. If so, we are paying for them to go to school when apparently they have the money to pay for it themselves. That burns me up. If you can pay for it and sell it, then you have the money to pay for things that you expect the state to pay for.
Doesn't marijuana affect your memory? How can they learn when they are high. In school they teach you about the learning process and that weed alters your ability to focus and remember, so 'we are blessed' are we not wasting our money? You'd think you would want students in there who have a desire to go somewhere other than jail.
If it were a sex offender or a harsher drug would you still feel the same? Either way, you are refusing to educate "SOMEONE".

I follow the motion that these kids getting hooked on drugs are taking spots in school from other kids who would thrive at the opportunity given. However, I disagree with coming in here and making fun of others, not everybody can spell correctly. I notice errors more than the average person I'm sure, but do you see me going out and making the comments you all have made just to prove your point of, "Oh, they incorrectly spelled a word, so I'm going to call them uneducated". Not cool...

Where did anybody mention spelling problems on this thread?Go to bed and try again in the morning!They are uneducated in the fact that they cant get it in their heads that pot is illegal and when you get caught with it you pay the price.

I was actually referring to the comment made by 'we are blessed' toward yourself 'Kentucky Bound' because they elected to call you uneducated because of your initial comment. So I was speaking in your defense to begin with, and then you now chose to get onto me. I agree with you in that they are wrong in choosing to do drugs to begin with. I agree that they are taking the place in school of others who are less fortunate, and there should be consequences for their actions. I believe this is a very viable topic on here, and I just felt that others were trying to take away from the topic at hand in order to pick at someone else for an otherwise unnecessary fact of opinion.

Inmates are confined and being punished. We choose to pay taxes to keep them there. I'm sure if you did a poll and asked if people felt comfortable paying taxes for the upkeep of prisoners, most would be fine with it since it is an effort to keep us safe. We have to pay to stay safe. On the other hand, for someone to go to school on our dollar and then take their own money and blow it on drugs, I'm pretty sure people would choose not to have our tax money og to them. There is always someone else out there that could use that money.

Dont dilute the thread with your rambling and comparing apples and oranges.This is about dumb college students who know better than smoking dope.If this is an example of their respect of the law then kick them out of school and let them try working at the chicken plant in Mayfield.

@voicing~ you are entitled to your opinion. personally i think molesters rapists and murders should not have access to free education or healthcare on our tax dollars.they should be fed bread and water and bust rocks all day. the punishments of the system do not fit the crime,imo.

Actually studies show that kids' brains do not reach full maturation until well after 20-years-old. That's why you see so many kids from 18-23 who still act silly, exhibit risk-taking behavior, and make poor decisions. I've noticed that most people don't settle down and start acting mature until around 24-25. What were you like at their age? Stop being so hard on them. Here's an anti-drug link you'll like that talks a little bit about brain maturation.

If you only respond to the ones that are worthy of discussion, you will be better off. Just ignore the ones that are immature.

if you go into this forum and read how ky bound treats people,including "we are blessed" youd not jump so quickly to defend him.anything said to him he deserves.
