Three teens in southeastern Washington were charged with felonies for marijuana possession. The teens aged 14, 15 and 17 have been charged in nearby Asotin County with felonies that could net them up to five years in prison.

Do they have the same law for alcohol? If a kid drinks underage, is that kid then convicted of a felony? What about smoking cigarettes and using tobacco? If not, then this whole thing is hypocrisy.

Maybe they’ve got the private sector running their prisons up there and they’re a little low on personnel. So, they need more people in jail so that prison becomes profitable.

This is outrageous. Children make mistakes! How is a child treated worse than an adult and given harsher penalties?

They should be ashamed of themselves in Washington.
