It's Illegal, They are Just Doing Their Jobs

While I may agree that marijuana shouldn't be illegal and that drug charges should not carry so much jail time, I get so tired of people complaining about law enforcement officers pursing drug offenders. They are ILLEGAL drugs at the moment; don't complain if you get arrested or detained by officers when you use these banned substances.

I have never even tried pot because I knew I wanted to be a teacher from the time I was a high school student, and I understood it was important to set a good example for my students--not to mention being free of any type of criminal record.

Also, if you are familiar with Forsyth county, you would know that crime rates are not all that high here, so our officers typically have the opportunity to pursue leads on any type of criminal activity they become aware of. It's not like they are ignoring robbers and murders to pursue drug users, dealers, or growers.

Complain to your legislators, not about your law enforcement officers.
