    @wize up...with the sorry level of pay in the police force, seizing grass is probably the only thing they would prefer to do other than writing tickets. Hell, who in their right mind want to put their life on the line on minimum wage when there is no consequence for always picking the low hanging fruit?

    Legalise it yeah, the international herb. The truth is I prefer to hear all the gun related crimes are solved before that of ganja is spoken about but to think of it where ganja and ddrugs are then there is a possiblity of guns involve also.
