Cops on the Hill:   Stories from the weeks of August 12 & 19, 2022

More Studies Needed?: The aide stated that his office (D-CA) believed that before any more changes to hard drug laws could happen, more research was needed to know how dangerous drugs like cocaine, meth and heroin are.  Being as diplomatic as possible, I replied these drugs have been around for about 100 years and have already been thoroughly studied.  Their addictive properties, their power have been widely known and published decades ago.  Moreover, per multiple studies, reducing penalties for users has little to no impact on drug use or drug experimentation.  His Boss is 80 years old and thus……and so it goes…..


Note:  California reduced the penalty for simple possession of hard drugs in 2004 from state-prison felony to a max of 12 months in the county jail…17 other states have followed that lead, including Oklahoma and Utah.
