You haven't even graduated from high school yet and you're on your way to jail and facing 3-5 years because you chose to self medicate. You eventually spend a year in jail and now, at age 22 you are an upstanding citizen with a steady job and no pill problem. Is it fair to have a felony conviction hanging over your head for the rest of your life for that one mistake?!
    A mistake and committing a crime are different things.

    Life indeed is a tough crowd. This thread repeatedly makes me think of a quote I try to keep in the forefront, particularly as it relates to young people: “Don’t judge my story based on the chapter you walked in on.”

    Which perhaps makes him dependent on the system for the rest of their life, because it's nearly impossible to rise above a mistake you made. I get holding people accountable for their actions. But our system can be so punitive, especially to those who don't have the means to defend themselves. Our judicial system feeds our welfare system every complains about.

    IMO, most employers aren't going to treat a drug charge felony at 18 the same as they would a robbery charge, etc.

    Question for you...Are you against employers running background checks on potential employees?

    It is my sincere hope that neither of you will ever be in the position to have to deal with a situation like this....

    If you ever are, then I hope you have some really strong faith and a good support system....

    Until then, anything you may say about a situation like this holds absolutely no water and is nothing more than a opinion with no basis in reality....

    ....and I don't care what you or anyone else thinks about my posts on this subject.

    Both of your posts show how limited your world and personal life experience is, and how short sighted your vision is....good for you that you haven't had to deal with any of your children making a "mistake"

    You know the bolded as fact? Just curious?

    Not going to speak for @UKMustangFan, but I bet our life experiences, and self mistakes we have made along the way (as well as seeing others make mistakes) give us foundation for our opinions on the matters at hand. (Just like yours, its an opinion.)

    Look I get where you're coming from and the reasoning that you have a different take on the situation, and thats cool, im not discounting it, just think differently.
