As a retired Michigan police officer, I found the comments of my
colleague, Macomb County Sheriff Mark Hackel, regarding policing
medical marijuana, puzzling. If a person has a permit for marijuana,
the officer simply takes no action. No permit would mean arresting the
person for possession. The same principle applies for those found in
possession of a concealed weapon. This is not complicated.

I hope Michigan votes in favor of allowing sick people to use God's
medicine. Our profession has more important things to do.
