    FOXNews.com - Teenager Charged With Starting California Wildfire

    So, was he charged with arson, recklessness, or pot smoking? If someone has an accident while lighting a cigarette, that causes a wildfire, should they really be held criminally responsible? Does the pot make this more serious or does it excuse him, since if it were legal maybe he wouldn't have had to go out in the brush land.

    I know I used to smoke pot back when I was that age, and I certainly had to go hide out somewhere to do it.

    I see smokers flick their lits cigs out the windows of their cars all the time here...even during fight season. I report their license # too if I get a chance.
