Nice little story in southern Illinois about a sheriff who was being interviewed for a story about selling off seized cars.
According to sheriff Mearkl Justus…the most common drug resulting in property seizures…is marijuana.
But after thirty years as sheriff in St. Clair County, Sheriff Justus has reached a conclusion.
“It’s just a merry-go-round. I think some day, and I don’t think it’s very far off, I think maybe we’re going to see in Illinois, I think one day they’ll de-criminalize small amounts of marijuana. And I’m not too certain with what that won’t be a good idea.”
The video is worth watching as it expands on the story, and you get an actual feel for how one sheriff is coming to a realization.
And this isn’t in some enlightened community where it might be easy to make statements like that. Far from it. For example, one of the few comments to the story was:
who cares…..I hope it never happens…all it will do is to cheer up some n*&&#$
