Despite the heavy backlash from those who see the drug war for the violent and racist despotism that it is, clueless cops keep bragging about arresting people for a plant that is legal in some form in over half the country. In more than a dozen comments on their post, the department defended kidnapping and caging a person for 116 grams of a plant — around the same weight as a stick of butter. What’s more, this bust was made in spite of Polk County law enforcement getting exposed last year for having a backlog of hundreds of untested rape kits. However, as the drug war toned down slightly with the decriminalization of marijuana, the department was miraculously able to funnel more resources and dedicate more officers towards solving murders. It is also in spite of new technological developments to help police solve crimes, like DNA testing, advanced forensic labs, and unethical spying devices like the stingray.
