Massachusetts Police Don’t Want To Bother With New Marijuana Law

The Boston Globe reports that the police in Massachusetts are unhappy with the new state law which decriminalizes possession of small amounts of marijuana. Many police chiefs will not bother issuing citations for possession, which carry a $100 fine, calling the law unenforceable.

In principle there is a problem in a democracy when police decide which laws they will or will not enforce, however in this case it is a plus if they are no longer going to waste government resources trying to prevent possession of small amounts of marijuana.
