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?
