Ridiculous, We need to focus on violent crimes these petty crimes like not having insurance drug possession is just what our fine legal establishment uses to make money. Insurance is against the constitution also a person who wants to use drugs/narcotics should be free to do as he/she pleases with any luck the drug addict problem will solve it's self.
