Mike Wiggins denies nothing.
Mike Wiggins, Guadalupe County Judge and a former DPS sergeant, has been arrested for having weed in a College Station hotel room.

Wiggins, a Republican first elected in 2006 to lead the county, which is east of New Braunfels, was attending a convention there when the cops were called because a staffer smelled burning marijuana about 11 p.m. Monday.

Cops found a silver grinder, rolling papers and a plastic bag containing 20.1 grams of dope in Wiggins's duffel bag after he consented to a search.

The Seguin Gazette reported:

Wiggins, who also served as Seguin's Department of Public Safety sergeant, said Thursday afternoon that there was nothing he could deny.

"It is what it is," he said.

Party on, Guadalupe.

To me, it's hard to understand the why the simple possession of marijuana is illegal.  Compared to legal alcohol, marijuana is relatively safe. In Oct., I919, the United States congress voted in the 18 amendment - Prohibiting the sale or use of alcohol.  Ironically, marijuana was still legal.  You could have a truckload of marijuana and that was just fine, but you could go to prison for possession of alcohol.

Because America is built upon a contradiction of terms as well as those who want absolute control.Plus, it eats into the corrupt corporate profits.

Why in the world would you consent to a search?  A clue to those that don't know..NEVER  consent!..If they have to ask it means they don't have probable cause! If they DO search after you say "no" do not try to stop them, Making them do a probable cause search is no different than you consenting, there are no additional charges. Especially being a judge, He should know this.

You would have to know Wiggins, he is honest to a fault. His statement "It is what it is" sounds just like him. That being a Class B misdemeanor will not disqualify him. Knowing Mike he will most probably just resign.---- all said and done-- he is a great guy.---wrong in this case but still a great guy.

Clearly.... . . the simple fact is that marijuana medication and therapy tells its benefits and it cannot be hidden for too long.--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Semi di Cannabis
