He's still on probation for the earlier charges. Let's hope he doesn't get bailed out this time. Perhaps, Daddy should say NO this time.

I can see stopping harmful and addictive drugs like heroin and cigarettes... But these substances don't do nearly as much harm as legal and socially acceptable drugs like alcohol and cigarettes. These are consciousness expanding substances that help us as a species. Do some research and stop the tyrannical war on drugs. Reclaim your freedom
