Its time to stop giving tickets for weed. Drugs have won the war on drugs. Congratulations to drugs for winning the war on drugs! Legal in 10 states and Canada, by keeping these archaic laws were just wasting money. We did an experiment in prohibition from 1920 to 1933, it failed utterly. The only thing it did is the same thing these stupid weed laws are doing, making regular people into criminals because they want to have a drink or a toke.
