Yes, folks. People from all walks of life partake in the sticky icky icky.
We even have a coke-snorting, pot smoking President (and the one before him, and the one before him.) Seeing a trend yet?

Turn the clock back to the 1920's/30's and I'm sure such things happened under alcohol prohibition as well. In fact, we know it did. Families such as the Kennedys were bootleggers.

The "morality" of pot prohibition lost its luster long ago. This guy has no business possibly profiting from the sale of pot. But if it was for his personal consumption? Who cares! 17 pounds points to selling it, however.

Moral of the (Associated Press) story? Pot prohibition sets the stage for such scenarios. No one would grow 17 pounds of pot for themselves if it were legal. This is just yet again an example of the failures of prohibition of pot.

And no by the way I do not condone that kind of illegal behavior but the guy was a small business owner and his legitimate business has probably suffered like everyones has thanks to all the un American freedom/capitalism hating liberals so he was trying to make a few extra dollars to pay taxes they keep shoving down our throats
