Prosecutors and Pot Brownies

As prosecutors we are bound by what the law is, not what the law should be or could be.

Bullshit. You as a human always have the option of not throwing a teenager in jail for hash oil you can buy off of retail endcaps in Colorado and from lots of regular folks living in Round Rock, TX. Prosecutors have a lot of discretion. Invoke your humanity and use it.

Instead of smearing Jacob’s name all over the place, I wish journalists would take the criminal justice system to task and pour some sunlight on the people that took a busybody neighbor’s complaint and turned it into a jail sentence for baking brownies that many of us would like to be eating right now because they sound really good.
