Va. teacher's son shipped pot to home

By The Virginian-Pilot

A Virginia Beach teacher no longer faces drug-trafficking charges after her son admitted in court that he shipped marijuana to her home without her knowledge.

Kellam High School teacher Darcy Mahler had been charged with sale and distribution of marijuana, transporting controlled substances and conspiracy to violate the Drug Control Act.

Those charges were dropped last month, but she was convicted of a related misdemeanor charge. The Virginian-Pilot reported Tuesday that Mahler is appealing that conviction.

The charges stemmed from a shipment of more than 6 pounds of marijuana sent to Mahler's home. Kenneth Mahler has agreed to plead guilty to two felony counts. A friend of the younger Mahler, Devin King, also faces several drug charges.

Mahler remains suspended from her job pending an appeal.

Around here they FedEx it without signature requirement and grab their loot before you ever come home.

When enough voters learn the truth about marijuana and marijuana prohibition it will be legal nationwide.

All of the so called problems attributed to marijuana are actually problems directly and completely caused by marijuana PROHIBITION!

Want your freedom back? Legalize marijuana! That will take away Uncle ”Sham’s” most common excuse to trash the Constitution and pretend like the Government is protecting you from yourself!

Why is the most useful plant known, a plant that has never killed anyone, illegal? It’s illegal because corporations that buy politicians fear competition from superior, safer and more environmentally friendly hemp products and because the Government loves to oppress jail and steal from the people! Alcohol, tobacco, petroleum, cotton, timber, chemical and pharmaceutical companies, just to name a few all see marijuana as unwanted competition.

The laws prohibiting marijuana are NOT a result of any harm from marijuana. They are the result of lies, greed and racism. Read the well documented proof of that and a lot more marijuana TRUTH in these two articles: “MARIJUANA AND HEMP THE UNTOLD STORY, Thomas J. Bouril” and “WHY IS MARIJUANA ILLEGAL, Pete Guither”, click the links to those articles on this webpage:
