I agree with you, but since it is a law and it is so dangerous as schedule 1, ABSO-FUCKING-LUTELY

Well her Dad has the power to do absolutely that with one flick of his pen. He can make sure no one ever serves jail time for pot again. I think Malia should serve the maximum sentence allowed under the law until Obama removes cannabis from the scheduled substances list.

hasn't it been debunked that there are tons of people in jail for basic marijuana possession? These people are usually in jail for having pounds of distribution, weapons, being on parole etc. I'm not going to edit this, I'm going to look up that study I read a while ago right now.... https://www.ncjrs.gov/ondcppubs/publications/pdf/whos_in_prison_for_marij.pdf

TL:DR, less than 1% of 20,000 are in for possession.

Before you crybabies DV, I smoke, and think it should be 100% legal. But voat is reals > feels. So let's get real.

She should still pay a fine and be assigned to classes like is done in pro-pot states. You can not advocate for legal pot and allow those under 21 to smoke and have less consequence than Colorado.

Treat it like underage drinking. Arrest her and make her parents come and get her. Then give them the old complete probation pay your fine go to classes and we expunge the record. Just like everybody else.

My real concern is if she is smoking pot so brazenly the chances of her doing hard drugs is pretty up there and that is not good. You for sure know she is boozing as well underage.

No one should serve jail time. However, either say don't enforce the law anymore so she doesn't goto jail and anyone else or enforce law and throw her in jail. You can't have rules for thee but not for me. People stop respecting the rule of law then.

You cant prove its pot.

She wasnt busted, just photographed.

Pot shouldn't be a jailable offense anyway.

It would be funny if a cop did catch her, and watch secret aervice and the cops get into a fight

I did six weeks and had to pay $4500 in court fines for the glass bowl I was busted with. That chick should have to do the same if not more because unlike me, she actually had ganja on her

She is underage for pot. Underage drinking gets you arrested. It thought the pro-pot movement wanted legal parity with legal vices like booze and cigs not special carve outs.

The whole mantra for decades was tax the shit out of weed and regulate it but make it legal for adult and use the money to fight drug abuse by minors. So which is it?

Hell she was in California if she could have done it like every normal person and done it fucking legally if she took the damn time to go get her card it is not like it is hard to get a damn card.

I'm not an obama fan, but I'm gonna stick up for his daughter on this one.

We cant prove its weed. It probably is, but i highly doubt she's going to confess.

Whats more troubling is after this has come out, the white house hasn't commented. Typical Obama white house

She is underage for pot. Underage drinking gets you arrested.

Then the government needs to intervene arrest her parents and put her in protective custody!

Hell she was in California

It was in Illinois where the democrats in that state have made great penalties for schedule 1 drugs.

No, but it should absolutely force a discussion on federal level pot policy.

Almost no one serves jail time for smoking pot. You only get in actual trouble if you have enough to sell.

@twitch1982 Not where I live, TX. I've known people to go to jail for a roach. Had a friend's car searched once because they saw papers and they kept saying, "all we need (to find) is enough for a bowl". Most of the state is basically zero tollerance. There are some tolerant places in TX like Austin and Houston. I live in Dallas now and they are pretty reasonable but all the surrounding cities will cracking down pretty hard.

Yeah. People usually plead down to smoking instead of more serious offence like possession, etc.

they can put 1000s of those on the book before they can record one solved murder. It makes them look like they are busy out fighting crime like batman and superman.

She should be treated the same as everyone else that did the same thing there, which was probably nothing.

On a side note PSA: Some people get sick from pot smoke. Can you just eat some brownies or smoke it off to the side during a outdoor concert? Please?

I get sick from not smoking pot. Why should I have to move to use my medicine? That's infringing on my rights. No one is stopping you from walking away from someone who is smoking. Sounds like you're just a lazy bitch who wants to put responsibility on others for something that you have complete control over already.

No one can be arrested for smoking a joint on camera. A cop has to catch you with it so they can confirm it is weed.

Also, I don't know of anyone who went to jail for simple possession.

Yes no one has EVER gone to jail for something because it was caught on camera. You can only go to jail if a cop sees you doing something in real time.

Are you fucking retarded?

Are you? Because I specifically mentioned marijuana use. The use itself isn't even illegal. Possession is. Cops have to find marijuana or drug paraphernalia with marijuana residue on it in your possession in order to charge you with a crime. It is actually not illegal to test positive for marijuana.

Yes, if she lives in Saudi Arabia, but if she lives in a Western democracy just wait a few years and I am sure she can get the death penalty.
