This is pathetic. Who drinks bong water? I guess someone stupid enough to smoke meth. Should have just blazed some herb out of that bong instead.

Here's an idea. Legalize ALL drugs. Tax them. The tax money alone will pay for health care not to mention the billions saved by ending the "war on drugs". Plus, with drugs legal now, you will see a drastic end to violence in Mexico as the cartels are out of business. People who want to do drugs will do them legal or not. Just one more freedom taken away.

Supreme Court decision is absurd. Justice Paul Anderson's dissenting opinion hits the nail on the head. This decision may result in over zealous prosecutors turning paraphenalia owners into first degree drug felons on their way to prison for first offenses. The 4 justices that made up the majority are all Pawlenty appointees. Thank Tim for the exploding costs of prosecuting and imprisoning these dangerous bong possessors.
WTF

The scary thing is that, according to this decision, someone could receive a felony and mandatory prison time for having a really big bong full of water that was used to smoke pot.

It seems the closer we get to rational policies in this nation (Obama's choice to not prosecute medical marijuana users) the more blow-back results from the prohibitionist side. Marijuana, however, is not water-soluable, so this may only affect those that do other drugs?? In any event, the precious few resources we have should not be spent locking people away for having domain over their own bodies. Public endangerment is one thing (such as DUI) but otherwise, government needs to get out of peoples' living rooms and bedrooms. Prison is no way rehabilitates people, and it labels them for life as a "drug user" effectively eliminating future employment opportunities, and the person then re-offends because they have little recourse in life after conviction. Drug policy is horribly damaging in this nation, and perpetuates the problems rather than solving them.

The Minnesota court system is a joke. How a case like this makes it to the Supreme Court is beyond me. The Supreme Court should be looking into election fraud not bong water.
