Even this cop wants to legalize marijuana...

Or so the latest mailer from marijuana advocacy group Citizens for Responsible Legalization would have you believe. (See previous efforts and more information here and here.)

In the shape of a manila folder, the ad opens up to a two-page spread, with a letter from "Tony Ryan, Lt. Denver Police Dept. (RET)."

"Dear neighbor," it starts. "As a former police officer, it was my job to protect the community, and it was a job I took very seriously. Several years into my career, I started to notice something. We were spending large amounts of time arresting and booking adults in possession of small amounts of marijuana, while the real criminals, drug dealers and drug cartels, got away — taking over our streets and selling to kids."

Naturally, this caused the retired lieutenant to join CFRL, as "these guys are on to something." (A tough-minded cop like Tony, as evidenced by his black-and-white photo, would hold a topic to no lesser a standard.)

The second page has the usual tax revenue pitch that the campaign has been pushing with it's other ads. So instead of reading that, why don't you just view a man that looks nothing like Tony's picture in action, below?

at White House now!

"Demand an Amendment
to the U.S. Constitution to End Marijuana,
Marihuana, Cannabis and Hemp Prohibition"

President Obama allows Adults and
children age 13 and up to sign "We the People"

This is the 13th MARIJUANA petition at the
White House and it is an UMBRELLA for all
the other marijuana, cannabis and hemp petitions.

The link is case sensitive, upper case capitol P.

That's a bunch of white cartel members!
Colorado possession of 2 ounces as a citation so why are they spending large amounts of time arresting and booking adults in possession of small amounts of marijuana.

LEAP and police can focus on "the real criminals, drug dealers and drug cartels" not getting away any time by not focusing on marijuana.
