As the debate takes place on October 17th, keep this in mind.

As an organization of hundreds of law enforcement (http://www.srch-results.com/lm/rtl3.asp?si=77&k=law%20enforcement) professionals, we support the Nevada effort to have the governement, not criminals, regulate marijuana. Marijuana prohibition reduces public safety. Road officers in Nevada will spend about as much time searching for a baggie of pot, as they do searching and arresting DUIs. Detectives/narcs who bust those who sell adults an ounce of pot are not at that moment searching for child molestors, rapists and those breaking into our homes.

During my 18 years of police service I was dispatched to zero calls generated by the use of marijuana. What else do you need to know that pot use by adults in their home is not worth police time?

Officer Howard J. Wooldridge ( retired )

Well said, public money should be used to bust violent criminals, the casual non-violent marijuana offender should be given a ticket, not jail time.

hmm stupid, white and black people like pot! it is not just based on race. Stop being a racist and realize this cop is saying something pretty profound, that even cops think pot is a waste of time to try to stop, so regulate it.
