Good Lord, it's a good thing those officers showed up and scared those cannabis users off. I mean, for Pete's sake, they could have just stood there for another minute or two. Then what would we all have done? What an excellent use of tax-payer resources!

These two incidents speak volumes about the illogical priorities of our local PD.

Good lord Capt. Rae! Can you not see which behavior has more potential for precipitating a tragedy? Common sense over ruled by personal bias? Pretty sure an intoxicated person sitting in a vehicle is grounds to arrest them for DUI, whether or not the vehicle is running or not. Perhaps it is time for city administration to look into the competancy of our police captain. He is doing a great disservice to our community in the exceptence of public inebriation on the part of his staff, and needs to be called to task before another tragic incident occurs, possibly resulting in another death. I am discouraged that our community also so readily accepts this behavior, and feel that this has a bigger impact on our image as a family friendly vacation destination then any issues related to mmj patients. How many incidents will it take before we require our PD to place the proper emphasis on combating this very real problem?
