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

    the good news, this dude won’t ever suffer from glaucoma

  3. Ugh says:

    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!

    • Retail Worker says:

      Most addicts start out on “harmless” marijuana.

      • Adamrothman says:

        That is a ridiculous statement

      • ugh says:

        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.
