marijuana needs to be dicriminalized. too many young people are getting in trouble and labeled criminals bc of this. California has started going in the right direction and only giving a ticket to people in possession of 28 grams or less. The rest of the country, hopefully, will follow suite.

I was given 10 years for growing pot in my basement, no distribution. The charge was possession with intent to grow.??? I have never been arrested before in my entire life.(53 years old) I had 22 years on the job and 3 years to retire as a chief utility engineer for a major university in new jersey. The arrest was in 10/08/ 2002. I fought this dirty case for 4 years(2006) before I ran out of money(60,000.00) and was thrown into prison to serve ten years!!! I got out after 4years and have repeatably been turned down for employment as a engineer. I am a honorably discharge veteran(nurse) of 6 years!!! I have worked so hard and spent most of my adult years in school and on the job. I was just turned down for a 80,000 a year job today with FLP because of this felony arrest. Now I,m on food stamps trying to get welfare!! Tell me what sense dose this make!!!???

Gawd y'all if you could learn how to spell and type you might make a better case for legalization. You're all a bunch of retarded dope-heads! Get clean and stop supporting terrorism and gang activity morons.

That is a horrible story samkingwe. I am going through something very similar. How ridiculous, as you see it is all about money, and thats why marijuana has not been decriminalized.

Personalities change way too much when Marijuana is involved. Employees on pot are more frequently late and do not put forth the effort to do a good job, only a mediocre one.

I don't believe that it leads to becomeing addicted to other drugs. Also I think alcohol is much more addictive and destructive than marijuana.

It makes as much sense as burning someone alive on a stake for being accused of witchcraft..........oh wait, our government did that too.

So you possesed marijuana and grew marijuana and yet you were perplexed by the charge "Possession with intent to grow". And folks say pot doesn't rot the brain...

Major Defense Contractor L-3 Communications in Melbourne FL held their 3rd layoff within a year.

Last week they announced another 20 employees were to be released by the end of this month at their Woody Burke Rd location in Melbourne FL.

The people that were put to death would most likely disagree with you. Try looking up the Salem witch trials during colonial times, yes that also a part of american history.

Oh I know all about Salem. I know so much that I know this took place in a tiny village in the COLONY of Massachusetts in 1692. That's almost 100 years BEFORE the constitution was ratified. So, your assertion that "our government" was somehow involved is patently false. I also know that many historians believe this was little more than a land grab perpetrated by unscrupulous types. Call someone a witch, have them destroyed, grab their property. Now that we've strayed far off topic, please tell me what the Salem witch trials have to do with legalizing MJ in Brevard County, FL.
