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!
I live in what is referred to as the "bible belt" and they have very strict laws on "drugs". Unfortunately weed is just grouped into that and it's not much different then having possession of the hardcore shit. Oklahoma is #1 in the US when it comes to meth per capita. That and teen pregnancy(party animals lol).
Oklahoma is one of the strictest states when it comes to weed laws. There are something like 8 states that allow medical use and now 2 states that allow recreational use and there are more states with much more relaxed laws on weed. But not here.
