      Yeah forgetful, I get that part. What I don’t understand is how 1.1 grams gets you a conditional disharge, particularly after having skipped a court date, disrespecting the court and wasting it’s time. You can say what you like about the politics that has been reduced to the contents of a poor soap opera, I for one have had it with these judges!!

      Either it’s legal or illegal! Regardless of the direction legislation might go, it is still illegal to posses the stuff. There are people who didn’t return to their parked cars in an hours time yesterday, and they will pay more of a penalty to the courts than this guy will. Court system is a broken joke!

    Nothing new…I know a few kids (now pretty sucessful adults)that were caught with way more than that and didn’t even see the inside of a courtroom – went off to College and everything – no stoplist for them…pays to have a “connected” daddy on this rock I tell you…We know who these “connected” peole really are but when we use that word that most aptly describes them you get in a bit of trouble it seems.

    And no the word is not White but it does have five letters…
