But I would point out to the apolitical censor(s) of this board that there is no such thing as an apolitical comment on a politicized issue. Anyone who criticizes Tre for his decision to buy and smoke a controlled substance is implicitly making a political statement that that substance should be illegal and/or that the relevant laws should be enforced.
So if you truly want this board to be apolitical then you should delete ALL comments that make ANY reference to public policy, especially those based entirely or mostly on ideological convictions and personal opinion. If there is a thread that is inherently political, such as one about the legal consequences of smoking pot, then it should probably be moved to the politics board.
I would also like to add that blocking political discourse and/or silence on a political issue are very strong political statements.
Just my opinion. Fee free to delete.
I am not going to delete this nor did I delete any other post of yours, but complaining about someone buying weed as making a political statement is silly. Chill out. I weed is illegal in Indiana (which it still is) then the transgression is doing something illegal. In any event, it happened and by all accounts Tre is a pretty good person, so i for one am ready to pass on this.
