I remember reading, 10 FUCKING YEARS AGO!!!
That 90% and higher of US currency tested positive for cocaine.
I guarantee you, cops will set the limits on these things as low as they're allowed.
Because of current civil forfeiture/seizure rules, which the officers' departments get a part of, and which the party they steal from has basically no rights to contest, this will be a huge money grab, especially for smaller municipalities.
The war on drugs needs to end. Immediately.
I don't care about trying any of them (just the smell of pot makes me puke, and I hate needles), but I'm sickened by how people are treated due to it.
From Nixon to Regan to Bush I, the rules got tightened, then Clinton pushed up enforcement, hard...
He had lots of ex-gulf war military that could easily be funnelled into law enforcement, and anti-discrimination laws meant the limiting of the "old blue-boy's network", where you might get off because they knew you weren't a danger, because now they have to check everyone for everything.
Here's the cure to all of this...
End the war on drugs,
get rid of civil forfeiture laws and everything associated with it and the war on drugs,
mandatory firearm ownership, plus, mandatory carry, no FOIDs, no registrations, no limit on what you can carry except that you can control it when you fire it (FOID, registration, National Firearms Act http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Firearms_Act are all unconstitutional).
REQUIRE citizens to grab their guns and run out onto their front porch when people start shooting, and defend themselves and their neighbors...
Do that, and you will have the following happen:
Violent crime will plummet to barely existent levels
All law enforcement orgs could be cut in half, lowering taxes.
What are gangs actually going to fight over now? And how are they going to fight each other when everyone around them is armed? They're not... they'll just whither and die,,, or they can attack and die faster.
