In my opinion, the possession of a pot seed doesn't rise to legal level of first-degree murder. But, hey, that's just me. :)

That is true and that is when states were allowed to treat drugs as they saw fit. Then came the Federal WOD and they forced states into federal sentencing guidelines . That is why I don't understand the anger from the pro-drug crowd about the WOD. If and when the Feds let states regain control over their approach to drugs, y'all may be in for rude shock.

That's fine though, we'd still save 20 billion or more a year (counting money sent over seas for it) cutting it off federal. But I'm pretty sure that any law that made marijuana possession like that of 1st degree murder would be struct down as cruel and unusual.
