article imageCops want to legalize pot

By Alex Allen     Mar 31, 2013 in Politics
The number of people who want to legalize marijuana and other drugs is constantly growing and is now reaching cops and other public officials.
At the 2013 Conservative Political Action Conference, (CPAC) We Are Change's Sierra Adamson caught up with a man who was wearing a very interesting t-shirt. The man was retired police detective, Howard Wooldridge and the shirt he was wearing said "Ask Me Why Cops Say Legalize Pot."
According to Wooldridge, who is a member of an organization called Citizens Opposing Prohibition, officers in his profession should be "arresting more pedophiles," which he says is something they can do if they "don't waste time on a green plant." He went on to explain that he believes drugs should be a medical issues, left entirely up to doctors.
When questioned on the response he had been receiving at CPAC, with an obvious conservative base, Wooldridge replied that most people "under 40" were very receptive of the ideas he was promoting. He said that even many older individuals at the conference were starting to agree with him, realizing that the war on drugs is a "nanny state liberal policy." This is Wooldridge's seventh year at the conference. He said the response to his ideas has been gradually improving, especially since Ron Paul's appearance in 2008.
The Huffington Post recently conducted a poll which suggests that only one in five Americans still supports the war on drugs.
