As a retired Bath Township detective who worked the trenches of the
drug war for 18 years, I would like to thank Mr. Guyette for his
report on our disastrous, racist marijuana prohibition. As the "thin
blue line" shrinks, chiefs and sheriffs are choosing to keep
detectives in helicopters looking for a green plant. Meanwhile, the
pedophiles in Internet chat rooms are making contact with my
grandkids. This is nonsense; this is crazy but true. My profession is
addicted to the money "earned" by chasing Willie and Snoop Dog. Sad
and true.

Det. Howard Wooldridge (retired), drug policy specialist, Citizens 
Opposing Prohibition, Buckeystown, Md.
