Personally, I'm not gonna believe that until there's solid evidence proving it's cannabis. Not because I think cannabis can do no wrong, just because I'm a bit of a sceptic.
I remember reading up on it a bit back, but not so many sources so thanks for giving me something to do for a bit.
Still sounds like a power tripping cop enforcing his own made up punishments. There is no way that writing a 1000 word essay is a real punishment. What if the person that got busted is illiterate or English is their second launguage? They gonna bring in an English teacher to see if its properly written?
Community service and probation are probably all he will get. The essay is just to feed some troll cops ego.
Where I'm from probation officers sort probation, not actual cops. I'm on it now unfortunately.
Also, everyone's is different, there are many things that can be made a requirement. I haven't heard of an essay being one but it's plausible. They would have obviously found out if the guy can read and write before assigning it to him.
If it is real, I'd suggest licking balls and just pretending it causes cancer or some shit. Probation is fucking shit (though mine's nothing to do with illicit drugs, so at least I don't have piss tests), I'd be (and am) trying to get off it ASAP.
