This Texas Police Chief Just Said Something Incredible About Legalizing Marijuana

“We cannot criminalize such a large population of society that engage in casual marijuana use,” McClelland told KPFT 90.1 FM on Friday. “Most of us understand, we do believe, those of us that are law enforcement executives, that the war on drugs, the 1980 drug policies, was a miserable failure, there’s no doubt about that.”
