Anti-pot D.A.s used to inhale Satan’s weed

Decriminalizing small amounts of marijuana is a dangerous idea, say Massachusetts prosecutors who admit to trying pot themselves.

Suffolk District Attorney Daniel Conley, Middlesex District Attorney Gerry Leone and Cape and Islands District Attorney Michael O’Keefe, who are leading the charge against a state ballot initiative to keep small pot possession charges off criminal records, all say they smoked marijuana when younger. But that hasn’t stopped them from saying Question 2 on the Nov. 4 ballot, which would make possession of less than an ounce of marijuana punishable by a civil fine without placement on permanent criminal records, is wrong-headed, the newspaper said.

The prosecutors told the Boston Globe they have learned from their mistakes and say they worry that decriminalizing marijuana possession would lead to more drug use, benefit drug dealers, increase violence on the streets and create safety hazards on the roads.

I think they set a new record for hypocrisy. And ignorance.

    The only prudent thing to do is to arrest these three dangerous District Attorney scofflaws and prosecute them to within an inch of their lives!

    After all, since they admit they tried marijuana, obviously it’s led to more drug use by them (they said it, I didn’t).

    This rampant drug use also means they’re most likely hooked and therefore they’re still giving drug dealers money, they’ve been turned into violent maniacs by smoking that evil, common weed and of course, you wouldn’t want to drive around any of the three of them, so probably their driver’s licenses should be immediately suspended too.

    Stupid, hypocritical, mean and self-serving; those are definitely the qualities I most appreciate in a lawyer and in a District Attorney.

      ok, time to get educated
      1. Nicotine in cigarettes has led to heaver drug use then the THC in weed (cannabis).
      2.a mere 17 people have been killed on the road under the influence of weed since the year 1987, compared to the 40,000 a year from alcohol.
      3 and besides, how many stoners have you know that have become violent maniacs from smoking weed unless it was laced with another drug before hand i would rather be around a stoner that a sober person its just more fun
      4. weed hasnt killed anyone or given anyone lung cancer from direct use to be frank with. in fact it has been know to help paitents with cancer because it makes you hungry.
      5 weed doesnt support violence on the street. just a man trying to make a quick buck. its just a plant

      Cannabis is the healing of the nation, alcohol is the destruction- Bob Marley

      so if you have ever drank alcohol or spirits, you cant talk against weed

        While I agree in essence, your point #2 bothers me. Could you point to some reference for that claim?

        I also understand that alcohol deaths include those drivers who were not at fault but did have some alcohol in their blood. So while alcohol might have been involved, that does not mean it was the cause.
