1/16th of weed what about a 2 joints, the jurors took a stance on wasting money on this case and won. Great job jury.

I especially agree with the last line of the article, "a reflection of society as a whole." In general, America does not view possession of a minute amount of pot like that, as a terrible wrongdoing. The jurors stood up for something that they knew was going to not only be a waste of state funds, but ridiculous to charge someone for that petty amount of marijuana. It's reassuring to see leniency when it comes to petty crimes like this.

So finally "society as whole" is coming around and understanding how rediculous it is to prosecute someone for possesing a plant. Its amazing how far we come from the lies of past generations. If I were president I would go as far as to release all incarcerated on marijuana offenses, and drop any pending charges regarding possession. Also make sure and take it off the schedule 1 substance list and posibaly place alcohol in its place, since its far more dangerous than marijuana and has no medical benifits. Remember this saying, "you can fool some of the people some of the time but can not fool all of the people all of the time." Its time for the government to shoot us striaght on this topic and state publicly that the lies of the past regardong marijuana were only that, lies. Its time for people to demand honesty and accountability of the people power.

Big ups to that. It's nice to know that people are not preoccupied with mmj when it is not associated to violence. I am surprised at Montana for being so open minded as a community. it makes me want to pay the state a visit.

Good points made by GanjaKing420. This news worthy article goes to show us all what taking a stance can actually do. This may encourage others to just stand up and Not take this shit anymore. We can change the laws if that is a priority in our lives. Instead of being hypnotized by all the garbage we call entertainment we can actively change our government to reflect our needs. Thanks Montana jurors for having the nerve to do things your way.

I'm glad that those jurors took a stand and said something about what a waste of time it is to even convict these people for such a small amount, even if it were more than 1/16th of an ounce. Unless we're talking major drug trafficking, then it seems like these small cases are a waste of time and should be spent on actual crimes.

Kudos to all those jurors for sticking to their beliefs about not convicting someone for such a tiny bit of weed. Seriously why was it even in the courts costing the taxpayers money? Well again we find ourselves in a country that spends money senselessly.
