How about the idea that polarizing and opposing government against the People on the pot issue really isn't very productive? What is honestly the harm of someone being under the influence of pot? Do they spontaneously sprout facial hair, and start rallying to support some foreign insurgent group? No. They might finish off the pizza and get the giggles, but for the most part, pot's pretty harmless. Really.  Read More...

This...this is awesome. These cops see their gravy train is about to dry up and are freaking out. No longer will they be able to bilk the taxpayer out of millions of dollars to perpetuate myths and lies in order to use military SWAT teams to harass non-violent "criminals". No longer will they be able to steal "assets" of "drug users" to fund their departments.

The fact that they claim weed is a "gateway" drug and will lead to an increase in criminal activity is fear mongering at its very worst.

Awwww...

They are scared that their trough time is coming to an end.

Hey piggies... it is.

Marijuana is not a Gateway Drug.... This is the best reason they got for them to continue their terrorism against American citizens for a harmless plant.

"Local law enforcement agencies rely heavily on the drug war for funding. "

And that says it all.

Looks like some of you boys are gonna have to get off the public teat and get a real job - or maybe go after some white-collar crooks.

I'd be happy to give you Jamie Dimon or Lloyd Blankenship's address.

That! Is a grand idea!
Let's see some cops raid a J.P Morgan or Nationwide for assets.

If they were interested in actually protecting us from violent criminals, they'd be applauding this.

They are needed- to protect the rest of us from murderers, rapists, thieves, etc. NOT to police adults from what they put in their bodies when it is something as harmless as pot.

Have you ever seen a drug raid? That picture is a realistic portrayal of the way they look and are armed when they go in to make a drug arrest. Sadly...

10:29 PM on 08/30/2013
Actually in many areas thats how they look when serving any arrest warrant. Citizens have been murdered by SWAT while they were serving a warrant for a trivial non-violent crime.

The are upset by the reduced funding this portends. Figures.
10:17 PM on 08/30/2013
Exactly they fear a loss of funds and review for their arrest and means less over time for the day to day cop for them it’s all about money. But they are NOT the people, they serve the PEOPLE and they seem to have lost that. So when laws change they must change as well and I don’t give a rat’s ass if they like it are not.

"Conservative" is not a political party, genius.

  Conservatives always get shrill when they realize "Small Gummit" means cutting the amount of money THEY get from the Federal Government.  They just wanted Blue Staters to spend less, and start giving MORE to the Red Welfare State "takers".

Blue states typically pay more in taxes than they get back.
12:00 AM on 08/31/2013
I don't understand why ANY year that our federal budget isn't balanced, we don't collect from every single state that pays in less than they get out.

Republicans LOVE to complain about the debt, but just imagine: Every December 31st, the federal government demanding billions from red states that receive more federal dollars than they pay in.

I doubt that would balance the budget alone, but boy would it be a huge dent. Simply by treating the red states equally as blue states. But no. Reality is that red states get to continually TAKE more than they GIVE, and they're the people complaining about "taxed enough already". LOL....this comedy writes itself.
