There should be fines given to people who are caught using pot for non-medical purposed instead of giving them a criminal sentence. There is no need to be wasting tax payer money by putting them through a frivolous court trial, and then spending money housing and feeding them inside jails.
Marijuana is just a plant. It's not manufactured in some bathtub chemistry set. It's just the dried leaves and buds of an organic plant. Instead of handing out fines or jail terms for possession and consumption of something that literally grows out of the ground, we should work on legalizing and normalizing it to get its growth and distribution out of the hands of criminals.
