NFL  > General NFL  > Good golly, Mr. Jolly!!!
March 30, 2011, 03:30 PM
Jolly was arrested Friday morning and has been charged with possession of over 400 grams of a controlled substance. He faces up to life in prison if convicted.

Jolly, an EX-packer from 2 years ago, has been arrested again for the same she-it.
That being said, can someone please explain to me how getting a possible life sentence for this lame act, is the same as giving a life sentence for someone who whacks 50 people as a serial killer (think Ridgeway, Green River Killer) ???
The system is F'n broken!

Well if you lived in a state that enforced the death penalty then you wouldn't need to house Serial killers, Kidnappers, terrorists along with Drug dealers, Corporate thieves, drunken manslaughter, and armed robbers. They'd be dead. I think you are over exaggerating on the life sentence. He's an athlete he'll be out of jail in 2 years getting a second chance to play football and resume his second career of shooting up bars and selling drugs.

A guy I knew years ago was sentenced to life for "trafficking weed" right here in Indiana! This is completely stupid, and I agree the system is broken! Prisons are corporate profit centers now! This is why the 5 grams of crack cocaine automatic 5 years is being repealed. Legalize pot and solve the worlds problems now!

I agree 100%. California had its chance in the last elections to legalize pot. Heck even my 84 year old dad voted for the legalization. Not only would it reduce the amount of people in prison it would also generate tax dollars. It would have been a win/win situation.

How would legalizing pot solve the world's problems?

Maybe not all the world's problems, but legalizing pot would:--Generate billions in tax revenue for countless governmental entities while saving billions spent on interdiction, arrest and prosecution;--Help clear overcrowded prisons and court dockets;--Provide police and prosecutors with more time and money to pursue violent and predatory criminals;--Stop the waste of millions of dollars spent incarcerating non-violent criminals;--Remove another source of income for organized criminal enterprises;--Prevent tens of millions of responsible, consenting, tax-paying adults from being subject to arrest and prosecution;--Allow for widespread medical experimentation of the possible benefits of marijuana use;--Allow governments to monitor the production and sale of pot, restricting its use in much the same way as alcohol;--Shift the focus for those abusing it from punishment to treatment;--Allow a whole bunch of uptight, hypocritical **** to CHILL THE **** OUT.And maybe, just maybe, the legalization of marijuana would open the door for the establishment of a cohesive national drug policy that would actually help curb the abuse of dangerous narcotics. The War on Drugs has been an abject failure for nearly a century. It's well past the time for new strategies to be employed.I'm not aiming any of these comments at you, No.4. How's the hip?

I agree with you on many of your points but legalization of pot is just a small step forward. There are global problems that are of grave concern to all of us.

My new hip is feeling great. Thanks for asking Jack.

Cigarettes and booze are far more troublesome.

You seem to have your favorite drugs to be legalized. I drink and smoke so I guess that makes me troublesome to you. Smoke your pot and do your nose candy and have a blast but don't try to tell me what drugs are unacceptable. Different strokes for different folks bozo.
