Or it could have a even worse effect. Maybe the 15 year old kid thinks, "Hey Phil Rudd is an awesome drummer, and he smokes pot, so why shouldn't I?"

Fact is it's illegal, and it's illegal for a reason. It creates bad health, promotes a bad influence, and can harm other people physically as well. Now I realize 25 grams isn't a lot, so the third statement is probably irrelevant, but it doesn't matter if it's 1 gram or 1000, it's against the law and he was rightly punished.

how many famous rock stars died from alchohol ? and that is legal ..
how many people die from weed (not counting lung cancer or doing stupid stuff .. just overdosing)

i believe that weed is safer than alchohol (even though i drink more often than smoke)
