The opinion of those who make a living off of arresting marijuana consumers does not have much merit.
These people have made a career out of locking people up over a simple plant. Law enforcement receives grants and federal funds in order to keep up their marijuana fight. Officers receive vehicles, upgrades and more staff due to this flawed drug war and as a result, people should take with a grain of salt the opinion of those who stand to profit by keeping marijuana illegal.
Close to 1,000,000 people are arrested yearly due to marijuana offences and more than 11,000 of those happen within the borders of Colorado.
We can not afford to maintain the status quo. It's time to end this senseless war against otherwise law-abiding citizens.
