It is the job of an attorney to use and operate within the justice system legally.  The person that this discussion centers on has not been properly processed and gone through the proper channels of the system he is charged with upholding, defending and using.  That the system is not working fast enough for some is a separate issue.  No excuse to invalidate the system which allowing this person to practice law in spite of his legal condition does.

And supporting this and claiming justice is preserved is some real serious hypocrisy.

And then to equate this with a whole different scenario simply for the purpose of brow beating someone is petty and demeaning.  But that is how you all roll here.

For the smart asses who claim to know what civil disobedience is, consider use of cannibus 50 years ago and the laws were very, very different along with the other risks involved then.  How many of you would use it now if those same laws were in force now ?  Probably none of ya.  I walked the talk all these years so you lightweights can now party with little if any risk to your life, liberty and pursuit of happiness.

So fuck off, to whomever it may concern ...


Oh time to go back to the discussion that you said was too old to bring up. I thought we were done with that. So, yeah, I have a problem with someone being stuck in his situation and think the court made a sensible legal decision. Hypocrisy is saying you want to uphold the law but not the decisions of the court. I also think that you should have a system similar to Australia where someone who submits a valid immigration application is granted a bridging visa to give them legal status until their case is decided.

As to comparing to a different scenario, aside from you being the one who brought up your professional license, besides, this is the (checks notes: Marijuana: Baked News) forum. No, I don't think your personal marijuana use has anything to do with changing the laws, nor do I think that anyone who wants to follow the laws now, in the places where recreational marijuana use is legal (i.e. not Ohio) owes you anything for your sacrifice. Nor, do I think people have any reason to apologize for following the law.

I knew this one was coming.  Civil disobedience does not require getting arrested to be real.  Acknowledging and accepting the risk of arrest and real hard time for engagement in an activity is sufficient.  It is accepting that the lies put forth by the government to justify an unjust and immoral law is grounds for defying it, be it either peacefully privately or peacefully publicly, the intent is the same.  It is the intent that defines the act.

Life is much different when you have real skin in the game.  Few if any of you are even old enough to have had skin in the game.

People who engage in civil obedience tend to accept the consequences of their protest. The treetop flyer tries to avoid consequences.

Fake civil disobedience.

If someone smokes marijuana in the woods and no one notices, is it still a protest?

And why won't you let your customers know about your protest so they can make their own decision on whether to give you their business?

Privately ignoring the law for your own pleasure isn't civil disobedience. Putting up a sign at your work saying, "You should be aware that the person poking around your eyes believes that his marijuana use doesn't impact his job performance. If you disagree, you may want to take your business elsewhere." Don't they have a right to know?
