KY State Police Oppose Marijuana Legalization

The announcement comes after the top Indiana cop supported making the stuff legal


This month, voters in Colorado and Washington elected to legalize marijuana in their states. And this week, the superintendent of the Indiana State Police told his state's lawmakers that he supports legalizing and regulating the drug.

The traditionally hard-line stance American officials have held against marijuana is relaxing in some places—but don't expect Kentucky law enforcement to follow along.

Kentucky State Police Senior Trooper Michael Webb said on Wednesday that the agency's experience shows that the plant leads to other crimes.
