Comparing making a cake for sale vs growing pot is just ridiculous.
yeah, that's pretty much the response that usually gets typed in when the person doesn't have a legit argument.
baking and selling cake out of an unlicensed kitchen - illegal.
growing and selling pot - illegal.
speeding down the highway - illegal
shoplifting a dozen eggs ("but I'm just trying to save a little money!") - illegal.
re-creating a Disney character and selling it without permission from disney - illegal ("oh but I only sold one so they won't come after ME!" ----- yeah, go on believin' that. )
downloading music w/o following the licensing laws - illegal
Please let me know where I can find the documentation that says I can pick and choose which laws I'm allowed to violate.
Being a little bit legal is about the same as being a little bit pregnant. No such thing.
