A cop with a pain pill habit gets in trouble; so does yet another jail guard. Let's get to it:

Cop with a drug problem, tell me will this officer finish his treatment program and return to duty, I hear swat has a lot of opening's.

drug "war"

legalize and tax it. Marijuana was criminalized to get the excess mexicans out of the country. Well, that didn't work. Now it provides a good living to prison companies. What ever happened to free trade? making the top cash crop illegal while letting people smoke tobacco, which kills 1,200 people A DAY in the U.S. alone and drink alcohol, which cause much death and suffering is legal why? NO ONE has ever overdosed from marijuana, and never will. It's getting old, all these "wars" that never end and are never won.
