After Arresting Thousands For It, Police Dept. Claims Officers Can Now Use Cannabis

by Thinker

So if the police can smoke it, will those who were locked away for using it be let free??? All around the world there are men and women serving time for smoking or selling cannabis, while the use of it continues to be proven safe, and in many cases a cure for some to problems they’ve had for years. What would the world have been like if they hadn’t outlawed hemp??? Less disease??? Cars that wouldn’t dent (Henry Ford Plastic Car) Homes that would blow over in storms, clothes that last forever, clean fuel. There are so many wonderful uses for a plant put on planet Earth by the creator for mankind to use.

What happened???

Greed took over!!!

Is change for the better on the way???

Paradigm Shift: After Arresting Thousands for It, Police Dept. Claims Officers Can Now Use Cannabis By Rachel Blevins

The same substance that was once demonized as a “dangerous drug” is now being accepted in a police department where officials have decided to treat cannabis like alcohol, and they are now allowing their officers to use the plant—as long as they are off-duty. As the city of Vancouver, Canada prepares to legalize cannabis for recreational use in the coming weeks, the Vancouver Police Board has announced that its officers will be free to use cannabis, as long they arrive to work “fit for duty.”

Specifying a time frame can create an implicit approval that this period of abstinence is all that’s required to ensure fitness for duty. This can lead to unnecessary labor conflicts where employees are fit for duty but have consumed cannabis within this time frame, or where employees are not fit for duty but mistakenly believe they are as they consumed outside this time frame.

The report from the Vancouver Police Department noted that:

The Injustice of Marijuana Arrests – By Jesse Wegman

America’s four-decade war on drugs is responsible for many casualties, but the criminalization of marijuana has been perhaps the most destructive part of that war. The toll can be measured in dollars — billions of which are thrown away each year in the aggressive enforcement of pointless laws. It can be measured in years — whether wasted behind bars or stolen from a child who grows up fatherless. And it can be measured in lives — those damaged if not destroyed by:
