What the ?!!?
- Barry Cooper sells a DVD on how to stash pot in your car without getting caught. This fall he will release a second one on how to keep police from raiding your home for marijuana.
Now for the kicker: Cooper is a former narcotics officer once considered among the top cops in Texas, where more marijuana is seized each year than in any other state.
- 'I'm not helping them to break the law. It's clear the law is already being broken,'' said Cooper, 38, who left law enforcement a decade ago. ''I will do anything legal to frustrate law enforcement's efforts to place American citizens in jail for nonviolent drug offenses.''
How about advocating alternative punishment then? ANOV's or tickets for misdemeanor weed - that proposal has already been studied and rejected in Chicago. More boot camps for non-violent offenders? At some point, are marijuana laws going to have to be changed? we're pretty sure that most of the "nonviolent" drug offenders are in for crimes like "trafficking" and similar. No one goes to jail for years for weed unless its heavy weight or a violation.
