Life sentence for Hashish

The Oklahoma State Senate passed a bill where converting marijuana into hashish could land you a life sentence in prison. The Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs (OBNDD) spokesman Mark Woodward said the goal of the bill is to “send a message” that illegal drugs won’t be tolerated in Oklahoma. A first time convinction would be punishable from anywhere from two years to life imprisonment, a second offense would be life imprisonment, and those convicted would not be eligible for suspend sentence or probation.

For those who don't know Hash is a concentrate, it's to marijuana, as a can of frozen OJ is to an orange, it's not more dangerous than marijuana, just more potent than marijuana, so I wonder how the OBNDD will react when they discover Schedule III dronabinol (legal even in Oklahoma) is even more potent than hash?

  4. Oklahoma doesnt seem to have its priorities straight. Its not like they killed someone, death sentence seems like an overreaction.

  7. Too harsh indeed. People can get away with a lighter sentence by committing rape, assault and even murder. It's just not right.

  8. A life sentence?

    How can they justify this when murder attracts the same term?

    Ridiculous.
