    With the fines they charge in Florida , it makes me wonder , what kind of drugs are they using to impose fines like that for a harmless plant . I think once the federal government reschedules marijuana to a more reasonable category the states will lighten up & change these ridiculous laws . Pot should be free for everybody ! Grow your own & have free weed !
