Such big time criminality!
 Quoting: DrPostman




Er, that was the FIRST time. It has happened again. Thhis is TWICE he has been present when pot was found on the premises.

He said he wouldn't know what pot plant looked like.

Now would that be acceptable for the rest of us to claim? I don't think so. We wouldn't be allowed off based on such a flimsy excuse at all. No one should be above the law.

Last thing I want is a buncha drugged up old farts making bills the rest of us have to live by.

That's my thing. I like him even more knowing this happened a few years ago but didn't hit the media and since then he's come out even more in support of medical marijuana, legalization etc. Most politicians get busted and then go just say no...

Frank is a crook; well actually part of the machine; but look at his work with the housing markets. You want a finger to point, look his direction. Unless of course you believe the bubble was created on purpose to create the economic crisis for today's conditions by the powers that be. Still a tool.

 Quoting: Bluebird

Not sure it was the second time. The fox story is poorly presented tough to know. But seriously it's not Frank's house and who goes and looks around the house to see? It's reasonable to guess he might not have known. And if he did? Who cares? Would you rat out a friend for that? He's not getting any preferential treatment. He didn't break any law here.

Re: Barney Frank present when boyfriend gets busted for growing marijuana
It was in the home of his partner and happened last week for the SECOND time. Not as though he was just a casual visitor there.

I don't think politicians should receive preferential treatment like this.

And it is his partner who was one of the main ones who bankrupt the Fannie Mae mortgage organization while Franks was in congress voting them more and more funding.

Total sleaze ball.

Don't get me wrong. . . I think pot should be legalized as well but right now it is NOT and I don't like these old farts in congress getting better treatment than the rest of us. Especially not those who have been primarily responsible for the collapse of the economy like this one.

That's the strangest reason I have ever heard, lol. There is not enough cotton grown in this country to make any difference in anything. Can't compete with imported, etc.

But yeah, I think it is less dangerous than alcohol, etc. Should be legal. But you do realize that then they would tax it beyond affordability and it would end up costing much more. Farnk's partner needs the money, ya know.

So you believe that he did not know his longtime partner was growing pot? Also present was illegal paraphernalia.

Why don't members of congress have to obey the laws the way the rest of us do? Guess they are just too special to even have to consider such a thingl.

Re: Barney Frank present when boyfriend gets busted for growing marijuana
Whatever. . . .but just maybe if they had to obey the same laws as the rest of us it would be legal. Since they so obviously don't, they have no incentive to legalize anything because the laws don't pertain to them anyway.

See the Charlie Rangel method of filing income tax then try it yourself to better understand what I am trying to explain.

 Quoting: Bluebird
He's talking about in the past when cotton was grown here..If it cost much more as a legal product than it would now, then people would still grow it and buy black market. Does alcohol get a 300% markup? How about tobacco? No. Most legalization bills I have seen at least in California and Mass have the option to grow your own for personal use, 100% tax free. Just like people can brew their own beer and avoid that tax. Same is true for the pot. Yet most don't. Because the tax isn't that high. If a case of bud was $300, people would brew their own. This doesn't happen. Instead of assuming you should talk to an expert on the subject. Like myself...

Re: Barney Frank present when boyfriend gets busted for growing marijuana
Come on guys I agree pot should be legal but as of now it is not. Our congress should not be allowed privleges that we the people dont have. Rangel is another one. This must stop and Party line has nothing to do with it
If they must go to jail or pay a penalty so be it

Re: Barney Frank present when boyfriend gets busted for growing marijuana
What concerns me is he was there when his apt that his lover lived at was busted for running a brothel and barney had no idea-the fact it was mainly young men for old me...surely did not go unnoticed by frank


The other thing is the fixing of 30+ tickets for his boy toy years back-it is unethical and illegal...of course instead of the ruse of race being a supposed focus then it was homophobia....the facts were ignored even more as allegations of bias and prejudice...disgusting


such a scam


If a straight man had his sexual history in the news regularly I would be as disgusted
