HILO, Hawai'i — Big Island County police and federal authorities say they will continue enforcing marijuana laws despite the passage of a ballot initiative making it the lowest priority for law enforcement.

Voters approved the measure 34,957 to 25,464 in last week's election.

Police Chief Lawrence Mahuna said the measure is a resolution, not a law, and added, "there will be no change how we prioritize the enforcement of marijuana. The resolution does not invalidate federal law. It doesn't legalize marijuana. It's still a Schedule 1 controlled substance, he said.

"We will continue in our efforts to reduce the availability of illegal marijuana," he said.

County Corporation Counsel Lincoln Ashida disagreed with Mahuna's assertion that the approved measure isn't a law.

Retired, sued or whatever - He is 100% correct about 1 thing. It is illegal according to Federal Law - and that Law will probably never change.

I remeber it being that way in San Diego in the mid to late 70's - not sure how it is now. Then the Cops would scowl at you as they drove by without stopping if they saw you smoking a joint. It wasn't worth the paperwork to do anything.

If everyone would unite then pot would be legal for all. If you de-criminalize pot then police could focus on real crime and not on people self medicating

"Real crime"... Really? Hmm let's see... The two burglary rings that were busted recently admitted to committing these "real crimes" because they needed quick cash for drugs. So when they get out of jail, leave your door unlocked and windows open when you're away so you don't have to fix anything when they take your property for fast cash.
