    This is bull someone had to have ratted on him. He is a nice guy and would give you his shirt off his back if you needed it. And he didn't draw any guns the police did when they came busting into his home. Some people also smoke pot for more than getting high sometimes its used for pain.

    The only thing obvious here is that "Sure","Use a Dictionary" and "Scary Stuff" are the same person. Anyone reading the posts can see that. Look at some of his/hers spelling and punctuation. What a moron.

    Why do they insist on dragging firearms into every little possesion charge. As far as I know, it is still legal to own firearms unless you are a convicted felon.............

    for everyone who thinks its a waste of tax money,he's luckey he only had one and a half ounces left.And for him to have eleven firearms in his possesion being a convicted felon,good job Maysville.

    That's enough pot for Two & A Half Men...But not much more than many regular users keep on-hand. A Dealer? Hardly!
