hubiestubert: In all honesty, that's pretty much the reason I want to see legalization. Not so I can smoke the stuff, but to end the waste at the state and Federal level, and it will take a bite out of the incipient corruption that seizure laws have created. Save our budgets in criminal justice for real crimes, our prisons for real criminals, and less bullsh*t cases.Turn it into a licensing issue, and a tax issue--then the hippies can arm themselves against the damn 'Reven'oors!--and we can maybe concentrate on real crimes...
Lsherm: GOOD.[img10.imageshack.us image 275x183]I hope they have to close departments because of it. Our state and local police are out of control and need to be stopped.

Pelvic Splanchnic Ganglion: "The failure of the Department of Justice to challenge state policies that clearly contradict Federal law is both unacceptable and unprecedented. The failure of the Federal government to act in this matter is an open invitation to other states to legalize marijuana in defiance of federal law," they write.Everything about this statement pisses me off. The police forget who they work for and they forget that States have sovereign rights to make and enforce their own laws within their own borders. If the Will of the People is to legalize marijuana consumption in their state, then those departments can go suck it.
Vector R: Law enforcement, the police groups said, "becomes infinitely harder for our front-line men and women given the Department's position."Wait...so there's less to do, so the job becomes harder?Local law enforcement agencies rely heavily on the drug war for funding. Police departments are often able to keep a large portion of the assets they seize during drug raids, even if charges are never brought.Oh, that explains it. "We can't keep stealing from citizens so we can afford SWAT tanks and other shiny military toys! WAAAAHHHH!"STFU, piggies. Legalize it, tax it, and retroactively release prisoners charged with marijuana crimes. That should go a looong way towards helping our budget problems.
maxheck: There will always be a reason why every podunk town absolutely NEEDS a paramilitary swat team.If it's not Cletus with an ounce of dope, it's the ever-present threat that Al-Queida might target the Fashion Bug in a strip mall in Bumfark Idaho.
skinink: Marijuana and prostitution, two things that need to be legalized and regulated.
scotchcrotch: It must suck building a career not only on a lie, but on unconstitutional seizures that are going to disappear overnight.Sorry cops, go do some real work.

iheartscotch: A lot of grant money, law enforcementwise, is earmarked for drug enforcement. DARE programs can be expensive to run.
