Get real, if you mind your damn business nobody would even know whether you had any information or not.

Nope, its not illegal not to report a crime. It is illegal if you are helping them with it, but ignoring it isn't illegal.

Plus, Hillis was banged up. I think Colt has a promising future, as long as they give him the tools necessary to succeed, and not get him killed and wreck his career like Tim Couch, and EVERY other QB that has come to Cleveland since their return in 1999.

I take it you're from Texas? Seems like the Browns are developing a fanbase from there now that we have one of their natives.



Again, back to the topic. Where were we, ahhh yes.. would I turn a neighbor in for growing pot? Let's see, to recap... if there is no harm, no violence, he isn't selling to kids, or my kid, and he isn't pushing other drugs, or attracting negative attention. I'm not saying a word.

They would have to prove that you knew something about it, and that would be tough to do. Let me ask you, do you turn people in for the smallest infraction? If you're saying "the law is the law" I would hope that you're consistent in turning people in for other things that are "illegal" like speeding, or someone shooting off fireworks on 4th of July (more dangerous than growing or smoking weed BTW) or a loud exhaust?

Debate your rationing please. If you make a scientific statement, please provide a source of your knowledge.

Thanks

nothing at all, as it is none of my business and it is none of the goverments business either. the failed war on drugs is just that, failed. they should just legalize it all and tax it if they want to just like they do with tobacco.

that would take care of alot of crime and get rid of the drug cartels both really fast.

The "drug war" is a scam anyway. Law "enforcement" has made more money confiscating property and money than they ever did "enforcing" the law or from tax money. The entire idea of "law enforcement" is unConstitutional. Now we will see who actually knows what police is really suppose to be under the Constitution. Besides, I thought that was a pretty and exotic flower on my neighbors property.

Actually the government loses billions on fighting these crimes. They need a return on their investment in manpower and their manpower costs far exceed any seizures of property.

As long as there isn't rival gangs blowing up my neighborhood to fight over the control I don't care. But that only happens because it is illegal right?

I would think that a BATF agent (not to mention the cartels) would worry about legalization because he is government and makes his living that way.

No more drug war, no more taxing you for it, no more job.
