As a retired police officer, I am unable to calculate how much taxing 
marijuana would bring to Sacramento. I can say that public safety 
will certainly be improved, as my profession stops wasting time 
chasing the adult marijuana user and their supplier. Road patrol 
could once again focus on the deadly DUI and reckless driver. 
Detectives could catch more child molesters and other bad guys when 
they are not flying around in helicopters looking for another green patch.
