Letter: Hard up for officers?

“Officers really like charging people and putting them in jail,” said Officer Justin Wareham while displaying his ignorance about marijuana on the front page of the Post Independent.

This guy is a public servant? He “really” likes to arrest people? They must be hard up for cops to employ someone who sounds so much like a redneck.

By the way, there is no scientific evidence of pot being a “gateway” drug. Justin saying all the hard drug users he’s known started with smoking pot is like saying water is a gateway substance because everyone who’s an addict drinks water.
