Just my Opinion
I am for the use of medical marijuana and for maybe one day it becoming legal but until then the officers have to do their job because it at the moment is against the law so they have to follow the law and arrest them. Also if they were driving while on it it's the same as not being able to drive drunk or on prescription drugs. When it becomes legal it be a different story as I do feel it should be but until then they have to do their job and make sure laws are followed and then it will be up to a judge/jury to decide what they will be charged with.

It will be nice when our local cops begin to understand that they are wasting our money with the Marijuana arrests. everyone picked up for marijuana should plea not guilty. I am waiting for just 1 of these cases to go to a jury trial. It is impossible to find a jury that will convict anyone for marijuana offences.
Sorry coppers. time to find something else to mess with people over.
