May 3, 2010 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- Top law enforcement officials in Illinois are joining forces to combat the push to legalize marijuana for medical use.

 

 

 

The state Senate approved a measure last May and the House may vote on it soon.

 

The bill would start a three-year pilot program allowing people who suffer from certain debilitating illnesses to have up to six cannabis plants.

 

Police warn legalization will only lead to more crime.

 

"The passing of this bill is going to lead to more crime and drug use. Street gangs will open marijuana dispensaries and they'll use the profits for selling that marijuana to buy guns and drugs and bail out fellow gang members," said Phil Cline, former Chicago police superintendent.

 

Fourteen states currently have laws permitting medical marijuana.

 

The Illinois House sponsor of the bill says it may come up for a vote by Thursday

B&T... thanks for the post.

 

This is an example of the very reason we all need to be aware of the pols that are running for office this November.

 

If we elect Reps that are anti-MMJ / cannabis we can expect that gov agencies that do not like our 'law' will do everything they can to subvert it and change it where and whenever possible.

 

And since when did a non-political agency such a 'law enforcement' be allowed to pass judgment on a 'political' issue such as is going on in Illinois?

 

Thanks again for the post. The more we know... the more we can do.
