Poor Marmel, it's funny how he resorts to believing that America voted for the president because of his race. What about the white Americans? They voted for him also. Marmel is implying that we don't know politics. I follow it daily. I voted for Kerry, Gore and Clinton. Now that I voted for Obama, it's based on race. Your stupidity beguiles me. I almost feel sorry for you. Develop a social life and quit following suit from USBlues.

A little Weed never hurt anybody. Who cares? It's just the fact that he's Mayor Franklin's Grown Adult Son! Half the city of Warrens cops have done a lot worse. It's not like the Mayor himself was caught smoking Crack with a prostitute, wait that was in D.c. Again who gives a sh#*!!

Actually you're the only nitwit in the room Marmel (1) for being dumb enough to pick arguments with names on a monitor (2) for believing these names on monitor are able to: "tell the liberals in washington, the media and the liberal voting base" anything as if they're a person to be contacted. And (3) because only a nitwit allows their entire existence to ebb & flow on the activities of untouchable Politicians, political parties, and partisan bullcrap.

It's like being angry and yelling at a cartoon on TV. For you these untouchable people might as well be cartoons since you'll never reach them, they'll never hear or entertain your feeble minded opinions, and would'nt give a crap if they did.

So you see, all this arguing, stressing, fighting and crap starting you do to your monitor in the name of politics is insidious. President Obama wins & you lose, no politician will ever hear your cries, give you their attention and no lay person will ever give you their respect,

No More maybe you should tell the liberals in washington, the media and the liberal voting base that racism is no longer fashionable. They base their elections on race you nitwit.

Now you're bothered by the man's name USB? Is there anything about black folks that you're comfortable with, anything? You really need to join up with the rest of the 21st century.

Racism is no longer fashionable and most Americans won't go near it and those who do are usually educated enough to know it's based in fraudulence...

You need to leave your mom's home and leave Trumbull County & Ohio for a change so that you see the greater world around you. You'll find a great place with all kinds of people in it. It's actually a fine place with fine folks of all complexions in it.

But of course you're stuck & trapped in your little anti-Obama, anti-Afro American hovel and will likely die there. Oh well, I tried..

"Who names there kid Jalani"

It's "THEIR" "THEIR" not "THERE". Used in the wrong context.

I thought you had a degree. Where from? Trumbull business college or new castle school of trades?

Js you tard. The worn cops dont have time for that kind of stuff. The government made smoking pot the same as a ticket for not using your turn signal. Grow up fruit loop.

All of this over a friggin joint. If I were the judge who gets this on their docket I would admonish Agent Smart to not waste the courts time and the taxpayers money on something that most Americans do on a regular basis without harm.

Smoking weed is harmless, less so than alcohol.

Who below the age of 70 can say they never smoked a little cheeb?

Word on the street is strap. So smoke on.

Nope all talk, didn't jeopardize anything for me...i don't frequent any of the places nor do I get easily offended of people posting about opinions. I just thought it seamed a bit odd that you knew so much of the activity. I don't really care but was just stating that drugs do not know any boundaries, you were clearly pointing out exact establishments when I'm sure these things happen in numerous places not just particular places. I will clean up my statements, I don't want to be responsible for anyone having high blood pressure.

I'm guilty of selecting the wrong word as I intended but didn't use condemn. Actually, pretending, copying, or trying to be anything other than myself wasn't my intention. The bottom line, the law was broken and the person that broke it should pay the penalty for doing so. It's also all too funny as to how people react thinking that their being singled out based on who they are. Next time, take it in doors and you'll save yourself and your family the embarrassment from making such a poor choice to begin with. Nothing more needs to be said .......

A felony is NOT AN OPTION for smoking a joint. Van Horn could not have charged Jelan for more even if his momma begged him to

Drugs are drugs if you do them and you get caught you should pay the piper. I agree that this happens daily in our city and we tend to look the other way but when a 12 year old says it just a little pot and that everyone does it we have a issue. We need to try to and encourage the children to be better than we were. Even though I did things in my life I do not want my children to do them. As a city we need to let everyone know that drugs on no sort will be tolerated even if it is a little pot. When people think that they can smoke pot anywhere and get away with it we have a problem. If that would of been a beer then he would of gotten a open container charge and a dui just being behind the wheel so I think he needs to be happy all he got was a little misdemeanor charge and not a felony. It is pretty bad that you can smoke pot and get nothing, but drink a beer in a car and see what happens.

It's always funny when people pretend to be intelligent by using words without knowing their meaning or blatantly copying the style of others. Condone means to overlook or disregard. What you meant to say is you "DO NOT condone drug use by whomever, wherever it occurs". It's really the opposite mytwocents cuz pill heads know, Did I jeapordize your hook up?

Real talk must be a barfly knowing so much info about these liquor establishments or are they mad because they won't sell you the stuff anymore? Someone always has to bring out race huh? Drugs have no ethnic or financial boundaries.
