Alright, first of all let me thank the few of you that donated in the time I had the video up or while I was doing the blogtv explaining the situation. I decided to take the video down because i felt like I could have done a better job with it, but before I could record another attempt I had to leave town for a little over a week (just returned a few days ago).
For those that don't know, my first court date is set for the 21st of this month (September). If I have enough money prior to that point, which is a slim chance, I will retain a lawyer. Most likely what will happen is that I won't be able to afford a lawyer, and I'll have to settle for a public pretender...err, defender. In that case, he basically just folds to whatever they offer me, which will probably include fines, court cost, public defender leans (yes, that's how they charge you), and probation, which includes monthly fines and piss tests (that I have to pay for), and that will probably include some form of drug counseling where you do an interview and they assign you some crazy number of meetings with them because you have to pay for each one...they will probably also drug test at my expense and require me to attend NA (Narcotics Anonymous) twice a week, along with the weekly counseling meeting.
It would be funny if it weren't true, but I will most likely become a slave of the state and end up paying about $3500 over a tiny sliver of marijuana that probably weighed 0.2 grams at most, and I'm not exaggerating. If I fail to do any of these things, or if I fail a single drug test, I will be found in violation of my probation, and will be arrested and re-charged (end get fucked over EVEN MORE).
I've been seriously thinking about why I would want to live in a state this stupid, in a country this fucked up? I'm starting to think I might be dead, and this (Florida and the USA in general) might be hell...
Until next time,
