Drug dogs HAVE to be social, or they wouldn't be allowed to intermingle in schools and at airports. These dogs are not feral; in fact, they're well-trained to behave socially in crowds of a variety of types of people.
This

Well said ClaraC

I need to apologize for something I left out. I should have said that I lost faith in "some" LE. Because as an earlier excellent post mentioned, there are many who are not greedy, and power hungry, but are reasonable, and compassionate. And I don't mean letting real criminals off with a slap on the hand. No, not at all.

If you look at my profile under "Heroes" I have listed LE, our military, and our leaders. I am thankful for the honest, brave, and faithful ones. It's the ones who don't have those desirable qualities that I was disappointed in. Just wanted to clear that up. Thank you all for your service. Be safe, and blessed.

Normal Police Department's assistant police chief, Steve Petrilli, is an idiot.

The dogs are also trained against being social in order to be effective workers, which led Larner to suggest "a number" of the K-9s would have to be euthanized in the event that marijuana is legalized, The Pantagraph writes.
Illinois police claim if marijuana is legalized, they'll have to kill their police dogs

I'm speechless lol
I too have to call BS. And I find this funny that this is coming from Illinois, which I thought was a liberal state, and liberals love weed and dogs?????? Why make up stuff like this for some over dramatic fear mongering?

As full national legalization becomes more likely, expect this New Millennium Reefer Madness to get worse. LEO and the courts make way too much money off marijuana's illegal status to give up easily. No more easy busts for a joint or a few grams of bud, they would actually have to investigate real crimes committed by real criminals - many for the first time in their careers.

If you need the cops to arrive fast, tell 911 you see a black kid smoking a joint. You will have a full SWAT team there within seconds.

This guy is uneducated and wrong . He... ugh .
I cannot stand my ex husband . Like at all , but he trained these dogs not only for drugs, bombs, metal , bodies living and dead , accelerants , certain metals , substances - all sorts of things , for all sorts of law enforcement and this is crazy . I lived with them for 15 years as they came in and went out or retired out at our private home and I am usually scared of dogs .
These dogs don't have to be put down at all ! We had many retirees trained by talented others as well, live out the rest of their lives with us and helped me raise a bunch of kids in the process and helped me out on the farm at that time. This guy is wrong. They even liked the barn cats .

I am grateful for legalization where I live .
It was used to safely help me off of an 8mg rx of benzos I'd been on for 25 because the Dr's would rather put a bandaid on something than fix it. without cannabis I stood a very high chance of dying coming off that class of drug . .

I always figured the dogs were trained to respond to something the trainer does. Just think of all the money spent keeping so many in prison for a nonviolent crime?

Sell them to pot smokers to help them find the closest weed.

Are you kidding me. As much as people love dogs you would have riots if someone started to euthanize police dogs.
