When it comes to ending Drug Prohibition It has so far been retired officers and retired Police Chiefs who have said, “End Prohibition.” The roster of Law Enforcement Against Prohibition is a prime example. So this in a very big way is a blockbuster:

The leader of Indiana State Police has no objection to legislative efforts to ease penalties for marijuana possession in the Hoosier State. He says if it were up to him, marijuana would be legal.

When asked about the drug in a budget committee meeting, ISP Superintendent Paul Whitesell said he’s spent some 40 years trying to enforce various marijuana laws.

“It’s here, it’s going to stay, there’s an awful lot of victimization that goes with it. If it were up to me, I do believe I would legalize it and tax it, particularly in sight of the fact that several other states have now come to that part of their legal system as well,” he said.

I have contacted my favorite anti-Drug War Retired Detective who runs, Citizens Opposing Prohibition, and sent him a link to the article.

And Oh. Yes. My Social Conservative friends. The Democrats will be doing a 1932 on you in 2016 unless you come around on the issue. I’d say four years is ample warning. Or 84 if you count from November of 1932. But you had better start now so it looks like a matter of conviction rather than electoral panic.
