Chicago has already done this. And quite frankly I think it’s a good idea. When it comes to “What do we need the cops to do?”, busting people for smoking marijuana is pretty low on my priority list.
Completely correct. And not that marijuana is a good thing or that smoking it is wise.
It’s a harmful vice, but not nearly as harmful as enforcing its prohibition.
Marijuana in Ohio is essentially decriminalized. Apparently, people here have recognized tying up law enforcement, courts, jails and prisons for something less harmful than alcohol should not be a priority, either.
Somehow, the state has not rotted and fallen into Lake Erie, despite the ramblings of people who support the failed War on (some) Drugs.
