Pot Brownies = Bad. Handsome = Good.

There are two stories that I find interesting. I will share them with you. The first is about a kid named Jacob Lavoro. He is facing life in prison for making pot brownies and selling them for $25. The reason why this is so bad is because he also used hash oil, which is infinitely more evil than just plain marijuana.



http://www.independent.co.uk/news/wo...s-9553747.html

The second story is about Jeremy Meeks, a man who is facing charges for felony posession of weapons. He has served two years in prison previously for grand theft. However, there is a mass petition to free him. Why? Because he looks like this:


Judging from many of the comments posted onto the Stockton Police Department's fan page, it seems that handsome men are incapable of committing crimes. It is unclear whether his fidelity to his wife will cause him to be too virtuous in the eyes of these commenters.

http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/l...622-story.html

Back to Jacob Lavoro. I can cite the many people who have done things to harm others and have not received a life sentence. (Not trying to put you out there, Larry and Carri Williams). The thing I don't understand is: What is our standard of justice? How do we determine the severity of a crime? Is eating brownies really more severe than murdering a child? Is being handsome really a factor in whether someone's sentence should be mitigated?

This world.

Re: Pot Brownies = Bad. Handsome = Good.

Both cases are terrible. And, unfortunately I have no right answers other than to comment that the justice system sucks.

I don't understand why you could be up for life in prison for making essentially pot brownies. No one got injured, and everyone knew what they were buying.

And when I saw the news stories in the last week about Meeks it kinda makes me sick that there are people in society who believe he's "too fine to be a criminal."

Re: Pot Brownies = Bad. Handsome = Good.

First of all, I skimmed right over that gangbanger's article cuz it's probably fake.
Second, i don't know where you found that pot brownie because of hash oil being pure evil story, which is also probably fake.

and thirdly, I'm saying it's all fake so it must. and is. KTHX

These articles are fake.

Enough people are saying this now. It is so. The interwebs have declared it.

Re: Pot Brownies = Bad. Handsome = Good.

Or just genius. Apparently you have the ability to wipe things from existence whilst drunk. That's a pretty cool party trick! My drunkenness isn't quite so fun lol

Lol. Yes, someone buy me another round!

Nah to me it comes easy. I can see pictures or videos posted on the webs and right away determine if that shits real or not. Or maybe I'm just cynical and write shit off right away lol

LOl yes. He's right. Everyone grow a beard. Females, if you can't do it, get your stupid bf to grow one.
