A 58-year-old Texas judge fought his own state’s misguided law and the law won. Guadalupe County Judge Mike Wiggins was attending a law convention in College Station. After what was surely a boring day of lectures on law, Wiggins went up to his room on the fifth floor, kicked back, and lit up.
Unfortunately, the judge has apparently never heard of the modern-aged spoof: the Smoke Buddy. After he hot-boxed his room, a bellman alerted the hotel’s security to that oh so wretched stench of cannabis and police found a grinder, rolling papers, and a sack of weed on Wiggins. But the situation soon went from bad to worse for Wiggins after he was let out of jail on $3,000 bond.
For weeks people in Guadalupe County have been asking for Wiggins to step down from office. Jeremiah Arevalo and his group have been protesting in downtown Seguin for the past several weekends.
“We decided to name the rally ‘Wiggins Out,’” said Arevalo.
Arevalo told News 4 WOAI he attended Tuesday’s meeting where Wiggins announced he would step down.
“Were happy that David defeated Goliath. The people rose in small numbers and we got the victory,” Arevalo went on to say. [WOAI.com]
Mr. Arevalo and his “Wiggins Out” crew view a judge with small amounts of bud as “Goliath” when their state’s border gets infiltrated with truck loads of cannabis from Mexico on a daily basis. Sorry, but this seems more like a case of David defeating David than David defeating Goliath.
They say everything is bigger in Texas. Based on this story, the views on pot are an even bigger joke in Texas than in other non-medical marijuana states. A plant should never be worth “wigging out” for.
Do you think a judge on weed would be any less unjust than a judge with a “clean conscience”?
