Marijuana misuse

As down as I am on the flagrant misuse of marijuana ‘scrips’ for people to get high ‘legally’ and make enormous profits from sales I concede there are those few who probably really do need it to maintain life. Maybe Steve Kubby is one of those people. It is sad that his health may suffer because of his incarceration.

The fact is he committed serious felonies. I don’t believe you can get a ‘scrip’ for peyote buttons and a hallucinogenic mushroom. At least not yet. If you are caught breaking the law you will have to pay the price. He should have considered that.

There are a lot of people in jail suffering from fatal diseases. That does not give them immunity from prosecution. To me, the thought of a convicted felon who tried to flee the country to avoid the consequences of his actions being allowed to smoke pot and stay high while serving a jail sentence is absurd. Might as well serve wine with dinner and allow kegger parties during football games. You wouldn’t have to worry about people trying to escape anymore. They would be beating on the doors trying to get in! Just my opinion.
