I would wear a 'Free Rosenthal' t shirt, definitely.
Tougher sentences all round, I think. People moan about people only getting 10 years for murder while people get 5 for 'growing some harmless plants that occur naturally, maaaaaan'. People skip around the connections between drug dealing and all the other terrible and violent crimes which come associated with it. Whether drugs should be illegal is another issue all together but the fact remains that it is, and while it is, there is a fucking HUGE amount of other crime directly caused by it.
When you go to jail for 5 years for dealing drugs, you're not going to jail just for selling some leaves that 'the man' decided were baaaaaad m'kay. You're going to jail for all the guys who OD'd in the gutter, all the guys who got shot for dealing on someone else's patch, and all the lives torn apart by drugs in one way or another.
How many guys have od'd in the gutter due to cannabis? How much fighting for someones patch goes on due to cannabis? Relative to the 10 years for murder is cannabis due 5 years? Does one persons cannabis have half the effect as one persons murder? Really?!
I don't make the rules. There should be tougher sentences for things like murder and rape but I don't think drug offences should be taken lightly. And for all you claiming weed is an exception and doesn't hurt anyone, how many people get jail time for being in possession of weed for personal use? In fact, how many people even get a criminal record if they're caught in possession? It's already taken pretty lightly by authorities. Frankly, if you're running a cannabis factory, you deserve to go to fucking jail.
Who has been hurt by weed?
