So easy to throw out the line and reel you in! Instead of going by the handle of OldTownie, you should call yourself OldGrumpyBastard! Or maybe EasytoBait!

I don't smoke dope, just don't want my tax dollars spent on the drug war, it's a lost cause! Go back to your sheep herd!

I am not anti pot but as long as it is still illegal I expect the police to enforce the law. If they are being paid with my tax dollars and didn't enforce the law that would be a waste of tax dollars. You don't want to be charged don't have pot in your car. By the way Greg he wasn't arrested for the pot that was just a subsequent charge so no addes cost.
