Former Police Superintendent Phil Cline calls Chicago cops stupid

Referring to a medical marijuana bill in Illinois…

“The passing of this bill is going to lead to more crime and drug use. Street gangs will open marijuana dispensaries and they’ll use the profits for selling that marijuana to buy guns and drugs and bail out fellow gang members,” said Phil Cline, former Chicago police superintendent.

The entire statement is absurd. The really outrageous part, however, is that Phil Cline believes that criminals will not only take over some dispensaries, but despite being listed in the phone book, and having a sign over their door, Chicago cops will be too stupid to find them.

When are the cops going to grow a set of balls and start pushing back at the insults given them by their union leaders and bosses, who keep claiming that medical marijuana laws are too hard for dumb cops to enforce?

    As I understand the bill (unless it has been ameneded)makes it nearly impossible for dispensaries to exist. Each patient is only allowed 1 “primary caregiver” and each “primary caregiver” may only provide services for 1 qualified patient. Which means that each dispensary would only be allowed to serve 1 customer.

    1 provider-1 patient is going to make it very expensive and time consuming,trying to stay within legal possession limits and supply 1 patient with their medicine.
    It would require a continuous grow/harvest cycle of plants
    in order to not have too much immediately after harvest and not running out before your next plant is ready for harvest.

    If cops are too stupid to understand MMJ laws, then why involve them? Maybe Phil could answer that one.

    Once again, with laughter: Man deemed too smart for police force

    If I were a Chicago cop, I’d let Mr. Cline know that he needs to STFU before embarrasses his ‘brothers in blue’ any more than he already has…and make more people remember that article.

    The problem is that cops are too stupid to realize they’re being called stupid.
