Pot is a Distraction – Published Letter to Editor

Pot is a Distraction:  published on February 18, 2010 in the Free Lance-Star, Fredericksbury, VA

 As a retired police detective, I certainly agree with Richard Moter’s thoughtful letter [“Legalization of marijuana is no joke,” Feb. 12].

 Every hour we chase the Michael Phelpses and the Willie Nelsons of the Commonwealth (of Virginia), we have less time for the deadly reckless and DUI drivers, and less time for catching child molesters and other public safety threats.

 My profession needs to return to its original purpose: public safety.

 If you have a problem with marijuana, alcohol, or cigarettes, see a doctor for treatment. The Thin Blue Line has much more important tasks.
