Of course he knew what he was doing, and of course he knew weed wasn't legal. laugh.gif

That isn't the issue here. This man is facing LIFE in prison for weed brownies. That doesn't seem a little extreme to you?

Reading into this more, the law is mad ridiculous. So even though the hash oil made up a small part of the 1.5 lbs brownie recipe, they can use the total weight of the final product as the total amount of illegal narcotics used? Absurd.

And if he would've used actual weed, this would be a misdemeanor case.

I don't expect the guy to get life, but the fact that foolishness like this little stipulation exists in modern society is crazy to me.

Oh yea, life in jail is ridiculous for that offense
But at the same time, 'Murica gon 'Murica, so I'm not even surprised

I don't agree with a lot of laws.

But if you don't agree with them and see how harsh and unfair they are....

*gasp*

Don't break the law.

By this logic, one could get a life sentence for jaywalking.

Should've never crossed that street.

I think we're all in agreement that the punishment is absolutely ridiculous. I'm positive the charges get severely reduced.

I'll never understand how this country wants you to spend more time in jail for selling pot than molesting children

but we shouldn't say anything people should just shut up and not break the law right eyes.gif

Never know. But you're missing the point. Don't you think someone would have looked that law somewhere along the line and been like "whoa whoa whoa...?" 

 

Some laws simply aren't just, cough stand your ground cough.

Here's the 19 year old in question

 

 

Quote:
Police searched Lavoro’s apartment, where they allegedly found 660 grams — or 1.45 pounds — of baked goods (six bags of cookies, nine bags of brownies) along with 16 ounces of marijuana and $1,675 in cash. “I’ve been doing this 22 years as a lawyer and I’ve got 10 years as a police officer and I’ve never seen anything like this before,” Jack Holmes, Lavoro’s attorney, told KHON-TV. “They’ve weighed baked goods in this case. It ought to be a misdemeanor.” Hash oil, classified as a “Penalty 2″ controlled substance under Texas law, contains a higher concentration of tetrahydrocannabinol or THC, the active ingredient in marijuana.
 
The teen’s father, Joe Lavoro, called the possibility of his son spending life behind bars for a hash brownie recipe “outrageous.” “Five years to life? I’m sorry, I’m a law abiding citizen. I’m a conservative. I love my country. I’m a Vietnam veteran, but I’ll be damned,” Lavoro said. “This is illogical. I’m really upset, and I’m frightened, I’m frightened for my son.” Lavoro was arrested on April 15 and charged with possession of marijuana, possession of the illegal hash oil and sale of the hash-infused cookies and brownies. He was held in Williamson County Jail and released on May 7 on a $30,000 bond. His next court appearance is scheduled for June 19. “It’s crazy,” Lavoro told KEYE. “I don’t understand it.” Neither do pot advocates, who say the possible punishment doesn’t fit the crime. “That’s higher than the punishment range for sexual assault, higher than the punishment range for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon,” Jamie Spencer, legal counsel for NORML’s Texas chapter, told KUTV. “It’s kind of crazy.” “This case is the perfect example of the insanity of Texas’ drug laws,” Spencer added. “Especially when it comes to marijuana or anything where the active ingredient is THC.”
