Re: “TV judge Gunn resigns from bench to peddle show

If she is going to have drug court on the TV, then she should include alcohol, over the counter and prescription drug abuse. Abuse is abuse whether people agree or approve of what's legal or not. As far as I'm concerned every time there is an accident involving a drunk driver our government is just as responsible for causing it as the driver, who injured or killed another person. IT"S CALLED RECKLESS ENDANGERMENT.

Reckless endangerment:
A person commits the crime of reckless endangerment if the person recklessly engages in conduct which creates a substantial risk of serious physical injury to another person. “Reckless” conduct is conduct that exhibits a culpable disregard of foreseeable consequences to others from the act or omission involved. The accused need not intentionally cause a resulting harm or know that his conduct is substantially certain to cause that result. The ultimate question is whether, under all the circumstances, the accused’s conduct was of that heedless nature that made it actually or imminently dangerous to the rights or safety of others.

Re: “TV judge Gunn resigns from bench to peddle show

Taking into consideration the amount of property damage, the number of deaths, the health and social problems that result from the alcohol, over the counter and prescription drugs the CSA states to be the only legal products for all the people, it doesn't take a lot of common sense to figure out they aren't the right choice for some of the people.

My questions are basic:
How can we continue to enforce a law that attempts to intimidate reasonably intelligent people to actually believe that marijuana is wrong for all the people?
And if marijuana is wrong for all the people, who is going to be held accountable for the damages and deaths caused by the products we are being required to believe is the right choice for all the people?

Re: “Trooper strikes plea bargain in fatal crash

Why does this not surprise me? If a regular Joe Citizen was driving 5-10 mph above the speed limit and injured or killed another person they would have most likely served time. Yet those who we pay to uphold the laws skate free all the time. These laws are for ALL THE PEOPLE to abide by. We do not live in a society of do as I say not as I do.

Re: “Medical marijuana initiative gets OK

Here's a concept: if marijuana is so wrong for all the people, why not hold the people who are so sure that the alcohol, over the counter and prescription drugs they believe to be the right choice for all the people responsible for the damages and deaths these products cause?
Honestly, why should fairly intelligent people be imposed upon and intimidated to believe marijuana is wrong for everyone?
The evidence is in black and white proving the products that are the legal option aren't the safest or right for everybody.
In my opinion it is unconstitutional to define a person's citizen by what they possess to consume under their own freewill, instead by how they treat the people in their communities, or by whether they have the morals to accept responsibility for their actions and decisions.

Re: “FOR: medical marijuana

Here's my take on this. If the people who believe it's so wrong for others to possess and consume marijuana under their own freewill and so sure of their opinion it should be a crime, then they have a moral obligation to accept and admit responsibility for the damages and deaths caused by the products they claim to be the only choice and right choice for everyone.
