What a joke. Way to waste money AND time by busting someone for ONE joint. Big fricking deal. Good grief. I don't even smoke pot but still think it should be legalized. Let cops focus on REAL crimes instead of doing crap like this.

I live in Plano and I will guarantee Collin County will prosecute this to the max. Collin County is the most corrupt, ultra-conservative county in Texas and they love to throw the book at people for the smallest infraction. He has no chance of getting out this and you can bet money on that one. Welcome to the worst nightmare county in Texas, Chase. I feel bad for the guy having to deal with anyone in the corrupt s***bag DA's office there. Just a few years back it was the Heroin Capital of Texas, but the little rich kids moved on to bigger and better things.

Seriously people alcohol is SOOOOOO much more dangerous than pot. This is just stupid, I bet there are more people who smoke pot than people who don't. If it was legal this would definitely be true, a lot of people can't because they are worried about getting a random drug test at work which is ridiculous. It stays in you system for 30 days, just cause you test positive doesn't mean your under the influence at that exact time.

USA Sucks    

A - I've never heard of this guy until I see all these "breaking news" articles in Google. I still don't know.



B - This country is seriously f*cked up! White collar criminals who ruin the economy and the environment never go to jail, but having a joint to relax and forget about how corrupt everything is gets you thrown in jail? (Bernie Madoff is only in jail because he ripped off other rich people.)

Hey CHIP!!! Who you kidding. Nothing is going to happen to Chace. he's laughing right now & you know it. Money will but him off & a little time working out for the homeless. People & families with Money get all the breaks. Money talks & Chace walks with a smile.

I <3 Austin, but I hate Texas    

I hate Texas. Hate hate hate Texas. Austin is the ONLY redeeming quality of Texas and had this happened in Austin, the cops wouldn't have done anything but take the joint and smoke it themselves. This is LAME.



Oh and for the record, I live in Texas and I still hate the bum **** state.

This is so crazy. Arresting someone for one joint is ridculous. Most places you just get a citation like a speeding ticket. What's wrong with these people?

Too bad for Chace that he wasn't in Massachusetts when this happened ~ He would have just been given a ticket & been on his way. Any state that takes the time to prosecute a marijuana offense like this one is just wasting the courts time and the taxpayers money!
