  1. So you cracking down on 2lbs from a local, yet all the weed police proudly found at airport cargo & post office – not a soul was found.

  2. I don’t think if u gave back his weed so he could sell it to pay off the fines it would still be short. How are you gonna take a year and half off a man’s life for weed.
