    If the chiefs had any sense, they would. They're wasting tons of resources (men, time, jail cells) pursuing these small-time "criminals" of victimless crimes; they'd be much more able to do their jobs if they were freed from this menial, tedious, and ultimately thankless task of sweeping the streets for harmless pot smoking kids. Also, crime rates would go down since a pot arrest introduces many street kids to hardened criminals and the life of crime, as well as demoralizing them.

    This law is a step in the right direction. It still gets people "in trouble" for having marijuana, but directs the police to go after the "real criminals", like the dealers and other traffickers, the "dangerous" people that the police have been and are known to be afraid to go after.

    Decriminalization will let kids still get loans for school, and jobs they would have been disqualified for by this NON-crime.

    After listening to a recent CNN interview with Congressman Barney Frank about his federal bill to decriminalize the use of medical marijuana (a near-identical bill he introduced in the MA State House earlier in his career), I heard someone comment that this country has more important things to care about than legalizing pot.
