I understand that enforcing las are requisite for the policing job. By for Christ sake, what a dumb law to have on the books.

Smoke a bone.

If you had $200,000 you could have applied for a license to grow marijuana legally. But if a regular person tries to do it, it's now a crime of moral turpitude. Please. The same rich white establishment that's been putting minority men in jail for years is now making money off it. If they do it, it's ok, they had the $200K for the license. The hypocrisy of it amazes me. Why the public tolerates it is beyond me. Sheeple.

So if a person owns a Dispenciary within 1500 feet of a school that's not a crime???
