Mayor and police at odds over cannabis approach
Frank Jensen, Mayor of Copenhagen, wants cannabis legalized, but he’s getting no help from Parliament, or the police who continue to arrest people for possession of small quantities.
Jensen gives one of the more astute comments I’ve ever heard from a mayor. It’s nice to see this kind of intelligence in public roles (even if the rest of the bureaucracy is thick as a brick).
â€œAs long as parliament continues to abandon the cannabis market to the gangs, there is not much more that police can do other than push the problem around and make confiscations. But this hasnâ€™t reduced the quantity that comes in to Denmark,â€ he said. â€œAs long as there is a market, there will always be someone to satisfy that market.â€
Now that Paul Ryan said on 1 day that states should set their own medical MJ policy, does Mitt still advocate non corporate welfare undergo drug-screening?
Paul Ryan set a record for the 100 yard back-paddle with that statement. He flipped a “Mitt” so fast I got nauseous watching it.
The legislators in our country will not shut down the black market by legalization and regulation because that would end the largest cash only business ever created,,no bank loans,,no taxes,,no “shares” to corporate stockholders,,,not even on the trading board and yet rich enough to save the banks when the crash came and went,,sorta,,
â€œAs long as there is a market, there will always be someone to satisfy that market.â€
To a prohibitionist this means job security.
