The Orange County Register reports that three Santa Ana police officers want to quash a surveillance video that shows officers making derogatory comments about a disabled woman and possibly snacking on pot edibles during a recent raid of a medical marijuana dispensary.
I’d like to say to all police officers: when you do busts on medical marijuana, you’re hurting people that aren’t there.
Medical marijuana helps seizure patients. It helps glaucoma and cancer patients. So when you bust in thinking you’re doing such a great job, just remember: what you’re doing could very well go on to kill innocent people. Is that protecting and serving? I don’t think so.
We’re re-evaluating marijuana. It’s coming out to be the wonder drug of the century. It’s time for cops to get their heads out of the sand and realize, as Bob Dylan said, “the times they are a’changin’.”
