I thank sheriff's Detective Steve Reed for his service.

That said, I feel my taxpayer dollars could be better spent than
filling up the helicopter's gas tank and using up a full-time job
hunting for marijuana. Every day we read of violent crimes committed
that really hurt people. The article stated the job could be
"treacherous"  his copter hit power lines and sparked the 2002 Pine
fire that devastated 62,000 acres of forest.

This cost cannot be justified in these difficult times.
