      • What if you had a kid and he died from a car accident? Would you want to ban all cars to prevent what MIGHT happen? I know freedom is a hard concept but let’s try it.

      • Cars have hurt many families. Food has killed many people. Are we gonna ban those to?

        Only ******* think the war on drugs have been a good thing when in reality it’s nothing more than a power grab by the government.

  1. Michael, your family could be the victim. The victim is any person hooked on cocaine. The crime is he broke the law. Wars are fought in battles and this situation is one of those.

    • If any adult takes drugs willingly, knowing the consequences of taking such drugs, and doesn’t force anyone else to take them, that’s called personal responsibility and shouldn’t be criminalized. Why is freedom such a hard concept for people to grasp?

      • Michael, you are one sick pup but regardless is the fact that the law is the law and we have to follow the rules of the law. All you seem to do is want to make the dealers richer and the poor poorer. Drugs hurt and that is the bottom line. Nothing good comes out of drugs.

  2. What was the moving violation? I’ve been stopped for multiple things and they never asked to search my car. Free Danny!!
