I have never, ever been busted in any way for being high or in possession. Knock on wood. If I got caught growing a plant? It's all over, no way I get less then 10 years in federal pound you in the ass prison(Office Space reference).
I would have to have a very, very small amount on me and get lucky in order to just get a ticket and not arrested if I did get caught. But they can take me to jail even if I just have roaches in the ash tray. It's sad how strict the weed laws are here.
Thats messed up. Its legal in two of your states yet if you have roaches in an ashtray you can get busted? Bloody hell. I suppose thats what happens when your prison system is privately owned!
