Why don't you spend 1/10th of that energy fixing the fucking system and law?

It doesn't matter what he did before, he's CURRENTLY facing that time because of the 2 joints. You think that's justified? He was on his bike with some weed in his pocket, and ALL his priors involved drug possession charges, nothing else. How precisely the fuck is the public served by sticking this guy in prison for a decade?



While Noble has two prior low-level nonviolent drug offenses that occurred 8 and 20 years respectively before his arrest in this case, he has never been convicted of anything more serious than possession of drugs for personal use. Because of these prior, albeit dated drug offenses Mr. Noble fell within Louisiana’s Habitual Offender Statute, which brings his sentence for his marijuana possession offense to thirteen and one-third years and deprived him of the opportunity for earlier release on parole.


Spin, Spin, Spin. You said find one, I found one in about 5 seconds. Now you want to move the goalposts. At least you're not trying to run with "but he wasnt actually smoking it at the time"

I think it's your turn to answer my question: why is it so important that the drug war - which almost everyone not directly on the gravy train acknowledges, is a failure - continue unimpeded?

People with puritannical, control fetishes almost always end up being the seriously fucked ones.

Look at Bill Cosby. I always thought there was something unsettling about his sanctimonious, preachy shtick.

Scratch a pompous finger-wagger, and often you will find a hypocrite, if not a dangerous criminal.

Another public health crisis not being taken seriously by anyone except the folks whose careers

have been built on the hyperbolic making of shit up about it.
