A Texas man accused of making and selling marijuana brownies is facing up to life in prison if convicted.

That's because officials in Round Rock have charged 19-year-old, Jacob Lavaro with a first-degree felony.

The former high school football player has an otherwise clean record.

The charge is so severe because the recipe includes hash oil.

That allows the state to use the sugar, cocoa, butter and other ingredients to determine the weight of the drugs.

They weigh the baked goods, not just the drugs in this case, otherwise it would have been a misdemeanor.

Jacob's father Joe Lavaro wants what's right.

"If he did something wrong, he should be punished but to the extent that makes sense. This is illogical. I'm really upset, and I'm frightened, I'm frightened for my son."

How much more widely accepted does marijuana need to become before they stop this nonsense? Can we stop the Archaic behavior already and quit portraying the laws we have as indefinite, because Obviously they're not. Things are changing all the time. That's the universe we live in. Leave the people who are afraid of change in the dust.

MAY GOD HAVE MERCY UPON THESE POLICE AND LAW OFFICIALS AND THEIR FAMILIES AS THEY HAVE ALSO HAD MERCY UPON JOSEPH LAVORO AND HIS FAMILY.

Marijuana is becoming legal and some local attorneys here in Tennessee, in anticipation of this happening are trying to change toxicology testing from government to private control. http://www.summersandwyatt.com/mt-bin/mt-search.cgi?IncludeBlogs=12323&t...
90% all men and 87% all juveniles in prison are from broken homes, while the only beneficiaries when pot smokers are incarcerated are the judges jails attorneys and police.
