    Why? Over the years, we read about catching people growing weed, but they keep doing it. Users aren’t just tourists. So now public monies get used up prosecuting them and, if found guilty, for keeping them in jail. We have a history of heavy handed convictions for an offense that is a misdemeanor in many parts of the world. US I just passed a medical use law. Why can’t we focus on bigger problems instead?

    We have to fix this. It’s not right! We can’t blame the police but the laws that’s set by our government. I’d urge the government to give it some serious talk about decriminalize and legalize.
