Here’s a link to an article about the drug found in Sullivan county.
The timing of this seems all too convenient when you look at the fight police departments are putting up against recreational marijuana legalization. Originally there was speculation that this would happen in this years budget. However due to logistical challenges that hadn’t been ironed out yet this did not happen. Additionally, several sheriffs, police officials, etc. held press conferences in February and March speaking out against legalization citing impaired driving deaths will increase. There were other arguments but this is what was focused on.
Though that argument might hold some water, I feel this is more about the revenue stream that will dry up for police departments if legalization occurs, and the timing of this is all too curious.
