Florence POLICE TIME, ENERGY CAN BE BETTER SPENT ELSEWHERE There are issues on which the police may publicly advocate with impunity but the use of medical marijuana is not one of them. Under Hawaii law, qualified citizens may apply for and receive a medical marijuana license for the relief of pain and other maladies under a physician's oversight. Ergo, not a law enforcement matter. Police time, energy and presence might be better spent at the front door of our schools rather than shopping centers. David L. Florence Haiku - --- MAP posted-by: Richard R Smith Jr.
