Cop: " Oh, is that a hot dog?"
"Yeah."
Cop: Could I have it?"

Who else here remembers those three lines? (Hint: Think about the title of this thread.)

That would be illegal. Weed, including medicinal is illegal in Peru.

Law breaking? Illegal? The legalities of it are not as absolute as you suggest.

According to Article 299 (“Posesión No Punible,” or non-punishable possession), the possession of marijuana is not punishable if possessed for personal and immediate consumption in quantities not exceeding “eight grams of marijuana or two grams of derivatives.”

Sounds dishonest? How so? What does honesty have to do with getting weed and what is it about getting weed that makes it dishonest? Illegal if in quantities exceeding eight grams, but honesty is a completely different concept than legality.

To live outside the law you must be honest - Bob Dylan

"I love a good man outside the law, just as much as I hate a bad man inside the law." - Woody Guthrie

"When you live outside the law, you have to eliminate dishonesty" - Stirling Silliphant

What are you saying? It is your opinion, by insinuation, people in Peru are law breakers. That seems a bit harsh if not unfair stereo typing.

To paraphrase Stewart Brand, once common sense rolls over you, you're either part of the steamroller or part of the road.

It is dishonest to say that all laws are dishonest

And.. It is also dishonest to say that all laws are fair and honest
