    Send the dope to California or Washington. You’re allowed to smoke pot there. What is legal in 2 states is not legal in the other 48 ????
    How is this ? Alcohol should only be legal in Pa.

    This administration is an absolute joke. I get sent to jail for having pot while John Q Public in Colorado gets away with it

    Absolute nonsense !!!!!

    This why it’s always important to keep your driving privileges in order. If he’d taken care of those violations…..he’d be up in smoke, eating pizza and watching hbo……as opposed to on his a$$……in a very small room. Ohhh and all his friends would really like him! Lol
