    we have a guy on my street with 5 counts of B and E still walking around stop wasting time locking ppl up for pot , they do this because they cant do their jobs and need an easy win to say “look we did something today”

  2. I stand corrected. The addicts that I’ve unfortunately had dealings with started out on pot. Regardless, the situation usually ends badly.

    Who cares? Stop wasting time (and ruining people’s lives and careers) on marijuana charges and do something about the real drug problems in Wayne County…meth, heroin, alcohol, and precription pills!

      Most addicts start out on “harmless” marijuana.

        That is a ridiculous statement

        You’re 100% wrong and evidence that these old myths are hard to kill. ALCOHOL is the gateway drug, not marijuana, with prescription drugs running it a close second in recent years. Luckily our society is slowly becoming more educated and moving away from antiquated ideas like this.
