The "record" is the real crime
Before Virginia’s laws on marijuana can change, Ware and Morgan said, the mindset in the General Assembly must change – starting with the House Courts of Justice Committee.
“It never gets out of committee … The people that run it are prosecutors, and they don’t believe giving any break to anybody. Once you’re a criminal, they don’t believe in giving breaks. It’s just a difference in philosophy, so they kill the bill,” Ware said.
Gov Vaginal Probe has made the statement "EVERYBODY DESERVES A SECOND CHANCE." Where the hell is he on this issue - why isn't he speaking up - doing something - giving these people second chances....I would hope that Virginians would educate themselves and also vote in folks who can buck the status quo and not merely rubber stamp.
