People in general could care less about their civil liberties. Which to me is very scary.
I guess they are afraid. Look at how nasty the IRS is.

People do not realize THEY have the constitutional right and even in some cases, the DUTY, to take action against things like this.

'they' need to be fearful of the people, not the other way around.

The claim is false but the comments were true.

Illinois police claim if marijuana is legalized, they'll have to kill their police dogs

I'm speechless lol

I'd adopt a couple of these dogs, anything to keep potheads off my property is a plus.

So-o-o-o we should keep pot illegal in order to "save the police dogs"? What the heck kind of logic is that?

Thank you very much guys for finding this excellent article. Who better to ask than the Denver, and Seattle Police Depts who have gone on ahead in this legalization matter. It's nice to know the truth .

Shucks .... if that means people stop doing prison time for marijuana possession ... Let me get my rifle ready ..


How do you think cows are slaughtered on grandpa's farm ? Do you think the meat was 30 years old, or old Willie put a 22 between the eyes ? No sense feed that cow grass if he's done growing meat on the bones!

'Police dogs' is code for police in general!

If pot is legalized in more and more states, POLICE in general will be loosing out, no more big budgets to fight the drug war, not as many police jobs needed, not as much police equipment/ vehicles, etc needed.

Take drug crime and drug related crime out of the picture...what kind of crime would most police depts be left to deal with on a daily basis...in other words...legalize drugs and police will become irrelevant. Naturally they are trying to fight that.

I think of the police as the drug cartels lobbyist/ enforcement arm in the US. Ensuring there is always a market for the drugs and that there is NO competition, the pharma companies learned that the hard way back in 2012 with the opioid laws, they ensured all the pill addicts MUST go the cartel for heroin/opioids and not from another source anymore, DEA and Govt made it happen.

Retire the dogs and give them a pension. Fire a couple of no good cops that have a bad track record to pay for it. Problem solved!
