Texas Judge Sentences Man To Death For Marijuana Possession

Image

An Austin Superior Court judge sentenced 34 year old Joseph Goldsmith to death row yesterday, after Goldsmith was picked up on his third offense for marijuana possession.

Judge Martin Churchill said during the trial that he had “already seen [Goldsmith] twice” and that “the third time was the charm.”

“If a man cannot get his act together, and he is arrested multiple times for the same crime, then I have no choice but to hand out the swiftest and harshest punishment I can.” Said Churchill. “In this case, the public needs to know how the state of Texas deals with repeat offenders, especially when they are drug-related crimes.”

Goldsmith, who has no other arrests on his report other than the previous two convictions for misdemeanor marijuana possession, was visibly upset when the verdict was read.

“I cannot believe it. This is like a nightmare.” Said Goldsmith, in tears after the hearing. “It was just a couple of joints. This isn’t right.”

Goldsmith was arrested this third and final time with around a gram of marijuana in his possession. In several states throughout the U.S., this amount would get him a small fine. In others, he would be let off with a warning. The state of Texas has the toughest laws on marijuana possession in the country.

“We will definitely be appealing the court’s decision.” Said Matthew Klein, Goldsmith’s attorney. “A sentence of death does not fit this crime. There is no way that we are going to let this stand.”

Goldsmith was sent to the Texas State Correctional Facility in Austin after the trial. Per his conviction, he will be required to remain on death row until an appeal can overturn the judge’s decision.

I brought weed to vegas once. They had drug dogs at the border station. I was looking calm on the outside but on the inside, I was experiencing a fear and loathing like never before. The only thing the brass found was some empty beer cans for which I had nothing to do with.

Wanna know how I fooled the dogs? I cut up my buds, tied a knot in the baggy and duct taped it, emptied a large tube of toothpaste, then i stuffed it in the tube with a straightened coat hanger. Then I filled up the tube that had weed in it with a fresh tube of toothpaste. So you need to buy two tubes of toothpaste. I noticed when it came time to fire one up that it did taste a little minty but it did what it was supposed to do without any ill effects. I smoked some in the hotel circus circus, then I went for a walk to the bonanza gift shop. A cop pulled up right on the side walk behind me real fast. I didn't even hear him, and I thought "shit...this is it. I'm off to guantanimo bay." then he say's "alright reggie, what did you steal now." I was relieved to deduce as I waited for the walk light to come on that there was a homeless guy behind me that I didn't notice at first, but it seemed the cop had known him for some time as a local troublemaker. He wasn't after me but few things can compare to the thought of getting busted in some other country; the fear and loathing.

All in all, it was a good trip. I played many blackjack tables not being too greedy. Winning 50 bucks at a time then spending my earnings to pay for my meals and small souvenirs. I have no plans on returning to Vegas.
