Question of the Day

According to a report by Livesteez, Pittsburgh Steeler’s WR Santonio Holmes was busted for possession of marijuana.

Pittsburgh Steeler receiver Santonio Holmes will be charged with misdemeanor marijuana possession after a traffic stop in which police smelled burning marijuana and found marijuana-filled cigars in his car. He’s going to be summoned,” said police Sgt. R. Griffith, meaning Holmes was not arrested after the incident Thursday, but will receive notice of the charge in the mail. The charge, possession of a small amount of marijuana, is punishable by up to a year in jail but probation or a fine is common in most cases. Police said the 24-year-old Holmes acknowledged having marijuana when stopped and pointed out the blunts to officers. “We’re aware of what happened and are still gathering information at this time and will not comment,” Steelers spokesman Dave Lockett said Friday. Holmes and his agent have yet to release a comment, reports the Associated Press. The third-year player didn’t have his license when police stopped him around 4 p.m. near Mellon Arena, the home of hockey’s Pittsburgh Penguins.

Since herb is exceedingly popular here in the states and internationally, the question practically asks itself: Isn’t it time for the legal systems everywhere to concede on the war against Marijuana and try to legitimize it’s sale and distribution?

    Everyone and their mother smokes weed, big deal. I wish they would hurry up and legalize it.

  • DR.FUNK

    More important to me is this:

    If marijuana becomes legal/decriminalized…WHO will make the bulk of the money from it’s sale & distribution?

  • DR.FUNK

    Legalizing it means paying TAXES & adding dead weight to your business infrastructure.It might also mean you could’nt get the high mark-up for it that you could when it was illegal.I wonder if some dealers would rather just keep it illegal to maintain high margins.(?)

    I think it should be a Lawless game. You should be able to grow for personal use no matter what the laws are on sale and distribution.

    Weed in and by itself isn’t as harmful as most drugs,but SMOKING anything will contribute to Heart Disease and Hypertension which is STILL the number one killer of Black Folks.If you must indulge,bake it or drink it in a tea.You get the same buzz without the ramifications of smoking.

  • bringthanoize

    It should be legalized and taxed like alcohol & beer.

    Mabey these tough economic times will create that manifestation- money talks.

    It would be a great way to raise revenue w/o raising taxes.

  • BKLYNZ OWN
