For those who know about my recent legal issues-
I received a pretty damn decent Plea Offer, and I'll be discussing it with my lawyer tomorrow afternoon. I won't go into detail here, but things are looking up! :D

2. I wish I had the money used to arrest and prosecute you diverted to me to send my kids to college!
I am the straightest of straight arrows, but I've had it with the drug laws in this country!

6. lol
I'm done with drugs now, but that doesn't change how I feel about Drug Laws- if anything I am even more against them now due to my experience.

7. Thanks!
:hi: I haven't really been able to update since the process is so damned long- this plea offer kind of came out of nowhere!

I couldn't be happier, myself! I was :scared: expecting a prison sentence.

9. first timers are often able to do a lot of bargaining
the dirty little secret is "The town just wants your money" but if you do it again they'll have to show that they "did something about you"

Capice?

10. Oh I won't be doing it again
Totally not worth the stress I've been through. Mushrooms are awesome, but not *that* awesome.

Yes, best not to talk about it publically.

This can lead to other issues..

16. Yeah, that's what I figured
At least not until the ball is really rollin'. At this point it is still just an offer, not an agreement. As I said I'll be talking to my lawyer tomorrow afternoon. :)

17. will you still be able to vote?
A felony, even with no prison time, still disenfranchises you, doesn't it? Depends on your state laws. You could make a counter-offer, get a slightly better deal.

Glad things are looking up, but truthfully, I had forgotten about it.

18. That I don't know yet.
If I get my voting rights taken away, I can get them back eventually. It's just more court process BS. I'll be asking my lawyer about that tomorrow, to be sure.

23. Best of luck.
I hope it's not the kind of plea where it'll still wind up fucking you somewhere down the road, but it probably beats the shit out of jail either way. Glad to hear things are looking up. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

26. That is fantastic news.
Everything about arrest and prosecution is designed to make you feel like human garbage. I'm very, very happy for you.
