Let Cops Use Pot

    1. Petition by

      Center for Legal Cannabis

Seattle is losing out on good police recruits by disallowing cannabis users the honor of serving. We need police who represent our people, and 74% of Seattle voters support legal pot. Plus, pot will make for mellower cops.

      Pot is a good drug... unlike alcohol! Legalize it!

      This is important to me, because I am one of those pot loving individuals that is harrassed by cops just because I'm a bit different. I have several encounters where I felt that my rights where violated because I am a known Cannabis Patient. The marijuana laws are still very strict in the state of Texas, but that is no factor in my use because it has kept me from needing Narcotic Medicines produced in a lab and that kill thousands if not millions of people every year. I also have some friends who are in law enforcement whom I know would benefit from the use of Cannabis not only from pains caused on the line of duty, but mental traumas that will stick with them for the rest of their days, because they swore an oath to serve and protect. I believe that every person, regardless of race, career choice, or sex should be alloud to medicate their bodies in the way they deem fit. Not what others say they should do.

      cops swear to up hold the state law not the federal law so if its legal for every one in the state why should cops be excluded from use yet expect them not to use.
