    Another one bites the dust. Keep up the war on drugs! Drugs feed terror groups, crime cartels in the south, biker gangs, etc... It is not as harmless and people think. Glad to keep this one off the streets. On another note: Is this the type of guy we are funding though our public university and forgiving of student loans? Perhaps in order to qualify for free tution and student loan forgiveness, we should require a clean criminal record.

    sounds like he was on the right path to a good education until the rnc stepped in... way to go you have turned another ordinary contributing citizen into a common criminal... i bet he never harmed a fly...

    We must do more to encourage our children to enjoy the safer alternative of booze and binge drinking. Drugs are dangerous....have another shooter.

    A friend of mine was charged in 1969, while a student at MUN. 43 years later, after untold billions in prosecutorial expense, things haven't changed much. I note they still take the time to arrange & photograph their seized booty, assuming they're not using the same few picture over & over again. Either way, who the hell cares? Better they'd legalize weed & outlaw booze, the source of most societal problems.

      Outlawing booze is what made the Mafia powerful. We should just legalize both. And other drugs too. It's your own body, right?

    Once again prohibition messes up a kids life. Time for people to wake up and realize that most recreational drug users are just normal people. The same normal people who have a drink. The so called "war on drugs" is a failure and a complete fraud.

    Oh no! Marijuana! Give me a break. You just ruined this kids education because of a silly little law. Newfoundlanders Against Marijuana Prohibition
