New approach to failed drug policy needed

Why, indeed, is this county arresting backyard medical cannabis growers? I know some, and they are honest, caring, good people, not criminals or terrorists. I mean, really, this goes beyond my fair and balanced mind. I hope the new law SB 420 will help the district attorney understand that 70 percent of “We the People” want you to set some priorities on your limited time and our limited tax dollars on the greater threats to the county, and there are many. I, for one, do not want more police, more jails, more taxes ” more, more, forever more. I am ready for a new approach to “Our Failed Drug Policy.”

Judge James Grey has one, that we should try to resolve to progress.
