Reader: Weed Should Be Decriminalized
Now serving 30 fewer than before.
This morning, we brought you some news about a local undercover operation in which cops posed as high school students. The officers went undercover, à la 21 Jump Street, in an effort to take down the delinquents. But unlike the TV show, these cops were going after small potatoes: weed.
This made us wonder whether "Operation D Minus" was really worth all the taxpayers' dollars that surely went into it. Sure, 30 students were arrested, but that will hardly put a dent in the local marijuana market.
Readers sounded off on the New Times Broward-Palm Beach Facebook page about the operation. One reader says there are worse things in life than weed.
