Question Regarding Pot Laws

Discussion in 'Marijuana Legalization' started by SpaaaceCowboy, Aug 6, 2011.

  1. I have been to NORML's website and clicked on their links for state pot laws....

    I'll use New Hampshire as an example...

    My question is regarding cultivation...

    Lets say you get arrested first offense for less than 1oz ....It's a felony and Incarceration is up to 3 years and fine of up to 25k....

    Over 2oz is 7 years and 100k fine....

    Does this mean someone with a clean record would automatically get jail and fine ? Do you think it would get dropped to something like probation or something with no jail time ? I'm talking first offense here.

    Now I am aware that one pot plant can produce several ounces...So if a person would grow one plant for them self they go to jail for that ?

    I was looking through the various laws, and frankly I'm flabbergasted....

    Oklahoma growing 1 pot plant can land you in jail for the rest of your life ?

    Are the law makers in this state serious ? This can't be ? I don't get it....How can growing one pot plant land you more jail time than a really heinous crime like rape or murder?

    What am I missing here ? Can someone enlighten me ? Did a lawmaker in OK have a kid or something who died from marijuana ?

    Sounds like to me the people who made and passed these laws are the real criminals. Putting someone in jail for life for growing one marijuana plant sure sounds like a criminal act to me....Sure sounds like there is a victim there for sure.....

  2. That's the government for ya.
  3. Yah man oklahoma is ridiculous. But i doubt anyone would get the maximum.
  4. I love how cali is "Gift of less than 28.5 g"
  5. It would seem that Oklahoma is very conservative in nature, consistently voting so through elections/intiatives. I dont mean to offend anyone whom may be conservative here, but many of those that I know whom have this particular stance that is totally against Cannabis.

    On the fortunate side of things, I had found that a medicinal marijuana bill is being re-introduced in 2012. It had failed originally, and though I expect it to fail again in this particular state, the importance is that it is garnering enough support to be reintroduced.

  6. Maybe I need to move to a Caribean Island or something
  7. You may do a night in jail and a fine but not the full time I'm sure. I lived in Arkansas ad got busted for accessory and had 1 night in jail and fines/court...and AR is strict about Cannabis

  8. So you say felony with no previous record should be no jail time ?
  9. Well i wouldn't guarantee that but i see no reason why anyone anywhere should be jailed for weed and i'm sure some officials will agree with that.
