#copquestions "What's your take on medical cannabis and legalization of cannabis?"
Our job as police officers is to enforce laws and protect the citizens. As long as it is illegal in MN, we will enforce the law. Obviously, if it was legal we would not enforce it. I also don't have the expertise to say if cannabis is medically useful. However, on a daily basis I deal with people and situations where drugs, including cannabis, are the root of the issue and result in other poor decisions and crimes such as thefts, vehicle break-ins, burglaries, etc. Every officer may have a different opinion, but we will do whatever we can to make the community safer, with or without legalized cannabis.
