Why does law enforcement oppose the Compassionate Care Act?

Many states across the country have adopted medical marijuana laws, which allow people with certain medical conditions to use marijuana products to treat their symptoms. South Carolina currently has a bill, called the Compassionate Care Act, being looked at by lawmakers that would legalize the medical use of marijuana. It is important to note that under this law, medical marijuana would mean marijuana byproducts that are not psychedelic. In layman's terms that means it does not get the user "high." The benefits from these products are specifically for relief from medical symptoms. While many support the act, there are also many who do not, including law enforcement.

People who have a drug addiction need treatment, not jail time

Addiction is not easy to handle. It is often a factor in drug-related crimes, but is prison always the answer? If you know someone who is struggling with addiction or have yourself, you might be inclined to suggest an alternative - like drug court.
