"...two bags of marijuana were located inside of his wallet..." Must have been a very small amount of weed...or, a very large wallet. Law enforcement needs to re-direct its focus on crime...to those that are REAL crimes. I was in Federal Prison for 5 years for a marijuana offense. No, it was not for simple possession. I was arrested aboard a Lockheed PV2 in Marianna, Florida...charged and convicted for conspiracy to import and distribute 12,000 pounds of marijuana. As those 5 years rolled by, what I did see were armed bank robbers, coming and going...while I still sat there for marijuana. Most of the bank robbers only spent 17 to 24 months. But, I and my fellow 'drug offenders,'...we stayed for YEARS. I wrote about the escapades that led to my incarceration. I admit, I had a great time. No one was injured, no one was killed, firearms were not involved...there were no victims. We were Americans...doing what Americans do best...living free. The book: Shoulda Robbed a Bank I think you may enjoy it...

just a quick question. Not related to this article. I can not seem to contact Patch any other way. Where did Erin Shultz go? Is she on vacation? She was an awesome editor, hope she is coming back.
