"drunken man in the middle of the road"? And he didn't even go to detox? "was given a ride home"? So the cops will bust petty-offense potheads, then help the drunks get home? Gee, this town sure is big on alcohol. How 'bout "Drunk Town U.S.A."? Let's have a conference to promote it!!

I also have commented on this questionable policy practiced by Steamboat Police. Even have had one of our more frequent bloggers argue with me that these public inebriates are less a danger to our community then the evil pot smokers (oh the odors!). Keeping in mind the Capote case, I would think that a strong enforcement of our existing public intoxication statutes would be a safer policy, and would be welcomed by the town. Pretty confident that any look at where police resources are expended would show an overwelmingly larger amount of hours spent on alcohol related calls then on those related to pot. Heck, we can see that just by reading the police blotter. I am not here to promote one drug over the other, just want to interject a little commen sense to the discussion. I am hugely disappointed that two of our senior law enforcement officials don't seem to be able to differentiate between sound public policy and their own personal agenda. Another example of social engineering?
