Morning Poll: Should "Spice" Possession be a Felony?

Possessing this stuff could get you hit with a felony.
​Twenty-seven
-year-old Matthew Keller became -- by all accounts -- the first person to be arrested in Arizona for possession of "Spice," a synthetic form of marijuana outlawed in the Grand Canyon State in February. He was charged with a felony.

After getting pulled over by a Yavapai County sheriff's deputy last week, Keller admitted there was "Spice" in his car. He told the deputy he didn't know it was illegal and that he'd recently made the switch from real weed to "Spice" because he was under the impression it was legal.

"Spice," legally speaking, is now considered the same as marijuana, which makes sense considering it causes many of the same impairments.

But a felony? Seems a bit harsh.

We want to know what you think: should "Spice" possession be a felony?

This to inform you of a person living and working in the United States illegally. The names that this person assumes are as follows: Gabriela Sanchez (her niece), Karla P. Durazo (her aunt), Patty Durazo (her sister),Julieta Sanchez (her aunt), Patty Sanchez (her sister/her niece) Rocio Sanchez (her sister), Mayra Viramontes (her cousin), Karen Durazo (her cousin),Kenya Durazo (hercousin), Karina Sanchez (her cousin).All of the names assumed by her can be substantiated through her facebook account which is under the name Gabby Sanchez.Her Employer is: Dr. Larry Stark   3201 W. Peoria Ave # A-100   Phoenix, AZ 85029Her assumed Social Security # is her Aunt's Soc. Sec. # 611-32-7757 (Karla P. Durazo) who actually lives in California.She drives a pathfinder with AZ lic. # AHT4587 Her address is: 2220 W. Mission Ln. #1095 (which is in Larry Starks name /  Phoenix, AZ 85017    co-signed for)  SRP Acct # 919-863-000    (which is in Larry Starks name)Her Phone # 602-628-3116   (which is in Larry Starks name)Family Assistance Administration Case # 00564738 (Gabriela Sanchez)Dental work provided under the name Patty Sanchez. And full medical (BCBS)is paid for by Larry StarkHer sons name is Carlos Flores-Sanchez and he graduated from Cortez High School.She was raised by her Grandmother who was a whore in Mexico. This young woman makes it easier for other illegals to obtain medications includingnarcotics and evade citizenship tests through the Doctors office that she works in.Also supplying them with false identification and documentation. I am very concerned about the illegal activities (Document Fraud, Identity Theft, Conducting crimes in America) that she is involved in. Please address the above issues as soon as possible.

 When did drugs not become a serious problem?? Where do you drawl the line? Its not the drug its self it’s the people that take them and the choices they make while on them… maybe people should realize what they are putting in their bodies and research it a little more.. Its already band in Europe the only reason its not band yet here is because it’s just become popular… just look at this guys face! He probably has other felonies and kids he does not pay child support for…

The only thing I can think of which possession of should be a felony is an MCSO badge.

Seems like the felony tag used to be reserved for serious crimes. What happened?
