Missing from the balanced report of Doug Smith on medical marijuana
was the sad fact that every hour my profession spends chasing and
arresting the non-problem causing marijuana user, the less time we
have for the deadly DUI and those who hurt our children and women.
When detectives fly around in helicopters looking for a pot garden,
they are not arresting a rapist or child molester. When road officers
are searching car after car for a baggie of pot, the deadly DUIs sail
on by and kill innocents.  Marijuana prohibition reduces public safety period.
