Hardcore Cops Insist Legalization Means More Crime
Several marijuana-related crimes were struck from the books when California voters legalized the drug for adults 21 and over last week, and several others were reduced from felonies to misdemeanors. Part of the allure for voters was that police—free from enforcing antiquated and ineffectual laws outlawing the nation’s favorite illicit substance—would then spend less time on marijuana and devote attention and energy to other, more serious crimes.
It’s only been a week, but this hasn’t been the experience of Parker Sever.
Sever is police chief of Hanford, California, a city of 53,000 in the southern Central Valley. Somehow, Prop. 64 has had the opposite effect for Sever—in fact, it’s created crime and more work for him and his officers. Well, probably, anyway.
Judge: Looking Stoned Doesn’t Equate to Impaired Driving
A Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court judge has determined that just because a motorist appears to be stoned doesn’t mean they have been operating a vehicle under the influence of marijuana.
Central District Court Judge Andrew M. D’Angelo said last week during an evidentiary hearing that while he acknowledges the consumption of marijuana can lead to impairment, there is “no evidence” that characteristics such as “red eyes and drowsiness” are “equated with impaired driving.”
D’Angelo went on to say that a police officer could not measure how a person’s marijuana use has hindered his or her ability to drive.
