If a police officer is allowed to use Kentucky bourbon, then they
should be allowed to use Kentucky-grown cannabis / marijuana (Former
Oldham Police Officer Pleads Guilty To Possession of Pot, Nov. 28,
2007), without persecution. It's time to re-legalize the relatively
safe God-given plant cannabis for responsible adults since it's safer
than alcohol, especially compared to whiskey. Cannabis hasn't killed
one person in over 5,000 years of documented use compared to
cigarettes which kill over 1,000 Americans daily, and it is less
addictive than coffee. There is no rational reason to lose a job for
responsible use of cannabis, because of discredited reefer madness
laws that should be appealed.
