Naturally, they want to blame drug war violence on the wrong thing.
Since recreational marijuana use was decriminalized in Massachusetts last year, pot-related trafficking and violence have escalated across the state, frustrated law enforcement officials tell the Herald.
Smoking weed is not a victimless crime, they say.
â€œWe knew it was going to be a nightmare for public safety and law enforcement. An ounce of marijuana can make a thousand joints,â€ Middlesex District Attorney Gerard T. Leone Jr. said.
Of course, all the violence they noted had to do with turf wars — caused by marijuana still being illegal, not by decriminalization.
And… An ounce of marijuana can make a thousand joints.
Who are these morons?
There are a little over 28 grams in an ounce. That would mean you’d have to make over 35 joints per gram.
That wouldn’t satisfy a hobbit.
