True enough as the Police Chief put it. The job of the cops is to protect citizens and property. Part of protecting the citizens is paying attention to their rights like the right to save money and make sure the city isn't paying cops overtime to hassle non-violent, law abiding citizens.

This rings true in so many ways. I can't even begin to tell you how many times I've watched shows like COPS where they show someone being arrested and taken to jail for something like a gram in other states. It's still amazing that they even put marijuana users in the same boat as someone who is in possession of a drug made in a lab or with household cleaners. Even though Prop 19 didn't pass, this is still something that can't be ignored because so many people benefit from this. The fact that Cheech and Chong are still alive and kickin is just testimony to how little effect MMJ has on your health and well being.

Finally, a legitimate voice of reason, a former Police Chief, has a realistic grasp on the issue! The state could save millions upon millions of dollars and police-man hours if marijuana was legal and cops could spend time fighting real crime and leave MJ patients alone.

I love it when names that really count to the masses stand up for what they believe in if there were more brave souls like the infamous Tommy Chong and the mayor of San Jose then maybe we really would get somewhere for a change. Look around people do you see that Chong is still as popular and I know a lot of people who would gladly change places with him felony and all. So thanks to Chong for his continued outspoken belief in something that is really should be a mute point, the legalization of marijuana

Who doesn't love Tommy Chong. Check out his documentary on how he got busted for selling "paraphernalia". Its pretty eye opening on how he was set up.

I love it when I see a former authority figure wise up and show the community what he really feels like. I have always loved Tommy Chong, he is a figure head for the weed community, his movies have always cracked me up. Other than that he is a very active educated man who is trying very hard to get cannabis legalized, which he has good reason to. He can prove to people that success and cannabis can go together, he is just an amazing person and has done a lot throughout his life. I personally find it silly when they refer to cancer as the immediate reason to use medical marijuana, I don't have cancer and have quite of bit symptoms of sickness that are helped by using medical marijuana. I hope people understand that marijuana isn't only for the terminally ill.
