    So the only drug found was marijuana? That area is crawling with Meth and other hard drugs and all you found was marijuana!? What a waste of tax payers dollars at work with this one honestly. I’m pretty sure it’s going on the ballot in KS if I’m not mistaken? Why not use tax payers hard earned dollars to get rid of the hard drugs? You know, the ones actually killing people!?

    Just more stupid waste of taxpayer funds and draconian persecution of citizens! Lazy police officers picking soft targets instead of fighting real crimes. Until these cops have solved every single murder, rape and violent crime they have no business wasting time on cannabis. Anyone can see that cannabis prohibition is a complete waste of precious law enforcement and court resources!

    Figures from the Center for Disease Control on numbers of deaths per year in the USA:

    * Prescription Drugs: 237,485 + 5000 traffic fatalities

    * Tobacco: 390,323

    * Alcohol: 88,013 + 16,000 traffic fatalities

    * Cocaine: 4,906

    * Heroin: 7,200

    * Aspirin: 466

    * Acetaminophen (Tylenol): 179

    * Marijuana: 0, none, not a single fatal overdose and almost no traffic problems.

    So, which is safer???? Legalize, regulate and TAX!

    By now, the complete lack of marijuana fatalities should be a huge neon sign when it comes to the politics of drug legalization. By comparison, 80,000 people die from alcohol related diseases annually. Over 25,000 Americans died in 2014 alone because of drugs prescribed to them by their doctors. On top of that, over 18,000 Americans died from *again* legally prescribed pain-killers. Use your brains people. You feel me where is the war on drugs? My problem is not with local departments but the whole governing system at a state and federal level. Christopher and Bobbie are great people and great parents and I have no doubt would give you the shirt off their back for anyone in Galena and I’m blessed to call them friends.
