  •  My question: (0+ / 0-)

    How many cops are saying "aww, but I WANNA bust those damn potheads"? And how many are saying "it's about fucking time"?

      than support it.

      I live in Georgia, which is stupid and backwards, but I am told even here we will get a ticket for possession.

      Am not about to test it. I still live in fear of the fucking cops and their reefer mad hard-ons.

      That will take a long time to fade away.

      Cops have been absolute terrorists to the Weed Community.

      The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.

        Meth-lab dens-of-hell popping up everywhere, but let's be willfully ignorant and lazy and go after the harmless potsmokers.

        No sense.

        the quotas. If the Department feels it's politically safe to lower or deemphasize those quotas, I'd assume most Officers would forget about the whole thing in a few months.

        But if maintaining their job and advancing still requires cuffing a certain number for possession, officers will continue to convince themselves it's the right thing to do. We're only talking about eliminating overnight incarceration, not arrests.
