THIS is to the every law enforcement officer in this county.

YOUR commitment and dedication to our public safety and our communities is what is making the difference. NOT that political BS Herron and Halleck just pumped out for their OWN POLITICAL AGENDAS. Which was enough to make anyone SICK.

YOU are the ones making the difference. YOU are the ones putting your lives on the line. YOU are the ones that kick in those doors. YOU are the ones that spend endless hours as a TEAM county wide regardless of what Law Enforcement AGENCY you are affiliated with. Right down to the street patrol officer. EACH AND EVERYONE OF YOU is what is making that difference.

HALLECK AND HERRON...HOW DARE YOU!

Meanwhile the federal government is in bed with Mexican drug cartels, which makes this an incredibly pointless endeavor and a waste of resources. The demand will never go away for hard drugs, and the supply will always keep flowing until we don't have another field to build a jail in or a dime to pay for it. And in the meantime we'll call this a "solution".

"Mr. Herron is the chief law enforcement agent of our county."

What's sad? There are people that actually believe that! He is the King of the "repeat offender" club!

Yes Grant, how well we all know what your solution consists of...legalization of all of it!

On that note, Grant, are you paying attention to what is happening in Colorado? Since the legalization crime is on a rapid growth. It is amazing what people will do to make money to buy their legalized drug!!

Kind of funnie !

We have 15% of the population using illegal drugs and the other 85% buying it legally over the counter by the truck load.

I've never once called for the legalization of anything, but you're far to cowardly to ever have an honest conversation about this. That much you've made very clear in the past. Go ahead and post more bogus "news", you can't cite any of it or back it up. By all accounts, even from the people in the state legislator who didn't support legalization in Colorado, everything is going much better than even the most lenient prediction. Meanwhile, your solution is to do more of what has been done for decades and has only lead to the "problem" growing in every corner of the country. Your problem is you've cemented yourself so deep into one side of this that you've lost touch with reality and you're too much of a coward to ever say you're wrong. It's fine. You are losing every battle and every war on the drug front, your kind will be extinct soon enough and we'll get beyond our drug issues and move on to more important things.

Let me correct my first sentence...I've never called for the legalization of EVERYTHING--not anything. I most definitely support the end of marijuana prohibition.

The best part is you can never really argue the issue with me WatchDog. Only put words in my mouth and try to paint me as some lunatic drug addict who couldn't possibly have any credibility because I'm probably high as a kite. It's really humorous.

Well I have to agree. I don't think where ever going to win the war.

As long as there is a demand ,someone will supply it.

I also predict with in the next3 to 5 yrs marj will be legal in most if not all states.

Just like alchol was yrs ago.

Absolutely. That's what I meant by people like WatchDog being extinct in a few years. It won't matter. It's coming whether they like it or not. Marijuana prohibition will end in the near future and it will be a great thing not only for our country, but for freedom loving Americans everywhere as we take back a piece of our liberty and stop allowing the government to tell us what we can and can't do with our own bodies.

More gun deaths are a certain function of more guns. We have more guns than the rest of the world too, so that is bound to happen. The vast majority of the rest of the world also has higher crime rates, especially violent crime rates. An armed society is a polite society.

Because we have more guns is no excuse for the run away violence.

The majority killed was unarmed. So are you suggesting that everyone should carry a gun.

Then turn every situation into a battle ground ?

The concealed carry law was to stop all of this ? The bad guy wasn'r supposed to know who had a gun causing them to back away.

huh over 11000 killed by guns in 2012 .Doesn't seem to be working well.

I have my guns and will use them if necessary. But the idea of everyone walking around with a gun on their belt is BS

Maybe that BS will work in Salem .Try it in a big city and you will be dead before you know what hit you.

No one is advocating that everyone walk around with a gun on their belt--why must you jump to ridiculous extremes?

Gun ownership is up, and has been for awhile. And gun violence is down, those are just the facts ladybug.
