Jury In Kansas Refuses to Convict On Multiple Marijuana Charges

By Nikki @KCBlogger78
A little while ago I came arcoss a tweet about a jury in Kansas that refused to convict accused on multiple marijuana charges. 

The defendant was being accused on level 3 possession with intent MJ, level 4 possession drug paraphernalia and level 10 no drug tax stamp.  What I find funny about this is that the jury bluntly made it clear even if there was reasonable doubt they still wouldn't convict because they all agree that marijuana should be legalized. They stated the jails are full of people with these silly charges. To read more on the story click here.

I will have to admit I laughed my ass off when I read this and said out loud "that is what I am talking about". I couldn't agree more. Marijuana should be legalized as it is not that big of deal. As I have stated in a previous post, I smoked and it never caused me any problems other than bad cases of the munchies. I mean come on, this stuff has been around since before people were here. It is not like other drugs which are man made & cause multiple issues! I still can't understand why Alcohol is legal and weed isn't. There are millions more reported incidents reported involving alcohol than weed. I just can't wrap my head around this illegal aspect of it and no I am not even high, as I stated in previous posts that I haven't smoked in over 4 months now. So this is my opinion and train of thought and I am not "under the influence" as the law would say. We need more people to stand up for marijuana like these jurors did
Does the damn government even realize how much money they could bring in, in taxes, by making this natural drug legal? I guess not. Plus it is full of old timers who believe and are set in their old fashion ways. Wake up people we are still in a recession you dumb asses and making this wonderful stuff legal will probably help us bring in some money. But I guess that is too easy and you would rather struggle more, I don't know. The government is just retarded and I could care a less about any of them and their decisions. It is just another thing for them to say NO to. They are awesome at saying NO. And I don't want to hear they have mine or america's best interest at heart cause they are full of shit! 
Ok. well I have said my piece, read the article and give your feedback. I would love to hear what other people think, especially people in Kansas. How do you feel about this Jury and their decision?
