    Small quantities of herbs should not be a crime… IT’S JUST A TREE THAT GROWS like Calaloo or Cerasee.

  3. Herbs says:

    heard all the small talk before!!! Cannabis is still illegal so offenders will be punished

    Charlie, some parts of the USA [and of course places in Europe] permit growing FOR YOUR OWN PERSONAL USE, but not for sale, and never for minors. That kind of policy here might SLIGHTLY reduce the criminal element. But when quantities are for sale, and people make big money, those people become dangerous — sadly, people will rob, cheat, steal, and murder for the love of money.

    I’ve had members of my own family lose decades of their lives to this “herb,” so I’m not too fond of it. Like alcohol, it can destroy lives, and cripple grown men so they do not care to support their own families. Have you ever seen anything like that among your acquaintances?

    I wish God had made a world where alcohol and drugs were unknown. We’d all be happier and more prosperous.
