This is why the crime rate is high. Too many deals and too many soft judges. The system is broken.

How do these people get away with these crimes? If it was some law abiding person who made one small mistake, they'd be in jail looking out!

Legalize it and they could have. Pot kills less people per year than alchohol, tobacco, or narcotics.

If the courts/police wanted to get them, they would have but apparently they didn't have their ducks in a row and lacked evidence. Good luck to the 2 that were wrongly accused. To think they did jail time and should not have had too. Where is their justice? I hope they can both get back on their feet now that the system held them up for so long.

30 pounds and no charges?! Up in smoke? Wow! UPS man is a good man to alert the authorities. Kudos to him! Pot may not kill anyone, but it is still illegal, idiots! Why do the judges allow such nonsense?

Want to save tax dollars? Think how many billions of our dollars are spent investigating, prosecuting and incarcerating Marijuana users. Certainly law enforcement resources can be better utilized tracking down real felons and locking up the moron in the trailer park who beats the snot out of his woman. Bottom line...legalize pot!

I agree, and with today's economy it would help drastically. However, I do realize it wouldn't create a great amount of relief, but at the moment any type of stimulation of the economy would be great!!!

If anyone would bother thinking of logics, the amount of prescription drugs our society is on is sickening and increasing at an alarming rate. With all the "legal drugs" out there that people consume on a daily basis, it makes an illogical argument to say that marijuana should remain illegal. The statistics behind marijuana and the deaths associated with its direct and solitary use are minimal I think at best. If the logical person stops to think about the amount of legal chemical combinations any one person may be on at any given time, marijuana then looks like chocolate to a five year old.

Narcotic and marijuana distribution is a plague in the Hanover area. The local police departments need better training to build cases that can be successfully prosecuted.

Many of the officers seem to have the drive to make cases, but don't know how. An officer from Penn Township, Gebhart, has had a lot of cases dropped or reduced because of his overzealousness. Teaching this guy some basics, such as the difference between reasonable suspicion and probable cause and hit on the 4th amendment a little, and you might have a good officer. You can't just stop someone, manipulate and object in their pocket and arrest them. There is also a big difference between a frisk and a search. Look up the supreme court case Terry v Ohio and that will help... A little better articulation wouldn't hurt either...

I'd offer the department a free legal class, but they're probably busy harassing our grandmothers for having a brake light out.
