    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    I once talked to a cop in a forum who was opposed to changing the laws because drug possession was something good (and easy) to hang on a perp who was doing something else, something worse but harder to prove. That didn't seem like a good reason to me.

    It's all in the attitude. The way I see it, if an idiot is stupid enough to drive down the freeway tokin' and texting, he deserves a ride downtown.

    Give the cops half-a-chance to be cool and they usually will. Give them bad attitude and they will find some way to ruin your day.

    But you already know this.

    It isn't. Just like a cop pulling you over for "I didn't see your seat belt" and then writing you a ticket for something else, like in some states it is illegal to drive barefoot and if they wanted to write you a ticket for it, they could. It's a cheap ploy but a lot of officers don't use it. HOWEVER, there are few cases where a suspect is committing larger illegal acts, which he may be hiding rather well, and to prevent them from fleeing or hiding evidence, you book them for something lesser like possession and viola, you can get a warrant to try and bag them on the bigger offense. That's the only time I would condone such actions.

    Drugs are a great bargaining tool. Toss a gangsta with a sack o' crack and tell him you'll trade his arrest for a gun.

    How is cigarette smoking more disgusting than smoking weed?

    There is VERY nasty **** in cigarettes. It's like sleeping with a chick from Jersey Shore.

    Cigarette smoke is worse, does worse damage to clothing and homes, and will deteriorate your body faster. You are also more likely to light up a cigarette (purchased legally) with more chemicals and addatives in it than if you were to light up a joint (purchased illegally.) That chance lowers for both tobacco and marijuana if you grow it yourself or know the grower. But more often you'll find folks growing their own marijuana than growing their own tobacco to smoke.
