Does the time fit the crime?

A tourist had four joints, 1.63g of cannabis, estimated street value of $75.00.
He was fined $1,600.

A man who refused to comply with a policeman's request to turn off his car engine, and then took off, dragging the officer along and eventually running over the police officer's leg, later abandoned the car, got a different punishment.
He was fined $500.

Seriously, is carrying weed that much more serious a crime than striking a police officer?
