    Part of the problem with this kid is he has never had to be responsible. His parents have been handed everything. This kids grandparents paid for his parents house, cars, clothes, pretty much everything. So he’s had everything handed to him also. Looking at where they busted him, pretty close to grandma’s house. Wonder if that’s where he was or headed. Sad.

      This kid may not even understand he a has a name to live up to. Hey kid, listen up. A few beers are ok if you can handle it. Pot is medicine. The rest are HARD drugs you don’t need. They only use up the good chemicals you already have in your brain.

      If they hand you a crazy Iowas drug sentence, save your own life and head out to California, stay clean and become a star.

    They need to quit letting these people out on bail to re-offend while they are awaiting trial. That’s why we need to combine rehab and jail. What kind of life will this kid ever have on drugs. He’ll end up like brick with no motivation to do anything but get high all the time and spout off about how great drugs are and that everyone should have free and legal access to them. Boy, won’t our country be great then. Can you say “Hunger Games”?

      Or he could become a “boozehound”. We all know that’s more acceptable because it’s a “legal” drug and promoted on TV. Ain’t that special…..
      Why the slam at brick? He/she hadn’t aimed anything at you.
      Can you say “hypocrit”?.

    He is also pretty stupid. To drive on a revoked license with drugs in his possession is just like asking the cops to arrest him and they did. Now he is just another kid with a ruined life due to illegal drugs.

      No, due to prohibition. Prohibition is what causes the problems because cigs and booze kill more than all drugs combined but are not prohibited. I don’t expect LVS to be able to wrap his narrow mind around this.

        What narrow mind are you talking about Fried Brains. The one that said this kid just ruined his life because he did something stupid and illegal? Smoke another joint and go back to bed. Maybe it will be a different world for you in the morning. Some people are born stupid and do not improve with age and you are a classic example of that.

    That’s too bad, this kid could have been a movie star. The gritty Midwest will eat you up if you don’t get out of meth central-no economic opportunity.

      Poor poor victim. I have lived in the “Gritty” midwest nearly all my life. I guess I am “lucky” to never have illegal drugs jump into my pocket all on their own while working my full time job. I never knew how lucky I was.

        Ya, you’re lucky, you got choose alcohol and cigs. That’s really lucky. You’re just a lucky dude.

      I actually agree, at least in part, and meth seems on the upswing again in this area. So sad. Also there is no drug court and no good treatment options (30 days PR doesn’t cut it). This kid needs help – yes he is guilty, but obviously has bad drug problem.
