    They don’t vote republican or democrat,come on they just think of Meth,Meth,Meth and More Meth.This type of people will die off at a very early age or we will have to take care of them because of their health.Iowa needs to legalize marijuana and use the tax from that too fight the real drug problem.Meth destroys lives,relax and think about.Who the hell wants too stay up 24/7/365 days.Only reason I can see is too steal sh!t from others,and ruin their life and their families seen it many times in society.

        Do you need to go to extremes when making comparisons? What’s wrong with your brain? Do you have any stats or numbers that are factual and unbiased that may prove legalization of marijuana has a larger negative impact than a positive impact? You dont have to partake or approve but you do need to stop being a total dip shit. The majority of the country supports it being legal. The revenue from a responsible minimal tax rate is beyond your limited imagination. We could do alot to fox our commu bk cities if people like you would give up your ridiculous uneducated moronic biased opinion on something you refuse to educate yourself about because you seem to pride yourself on being a douchebag about it. You’re always on here being critical of something that’s more or less harmless. Over 2,000 people a year die from constipation related issues and toure here complaining about pot and comparing it to sex crime’s? Are you a retard?.

    What do you want to bet there will be no fines or jail time for them, and like always, NIT won’t release the name of the judge/magistrate that handles the case.
