vpb: Well, is it legal or not?


LOL
the first time I smoked pot was with a chicago cop and his brother in law.
The idea that some cops havent always smoked pot, snorted coke, etc, is silly.
The hypocrisy is that these cops continued to arrest anyone else for anything related to drugs.

namatad: why havent we banned all police and fire unions?

Perhaps because this is America, and in America we don't tell people who they can and cannot associate with.

Subby apparently read a different article than the one he linked to. That one says the unions disagree with the policy that says cops have to report medical marijuana use by any family members that live with them. Here, I'll copy and paste the quote from the article and even embolden the relevant part:

"This policy infringes on the privacy rights of officers and I do not believe the police department has any business in prying into the private medical-related issues of family members of police officers who may live with them," said Bryan Decker, an attorney from the Boston-based firm Sandulli Grace that represents more than 100 police unions across the state.

Tell me again why it is OK to have a Federal law that requires every last person with a Commercial Driver License to be randomly drug tested by their employer yet there is no such law for cops?
Who is more dangerous, someone driving a delivery truck or someone that carries a gun all day and has arrest powers?

It should be as legal as cigarettes, and anyone who thinks it's a hazard on the road hasn't been making taco bell runs for years upon years without a single incident. Let's just do away with the ignorance and stigma of corporate interest drug-war propaganda. It's time.

CruiserTwelve: fnordfocus: Civilians with permission for medical marijuana end up on a state registry.  But God forbid the government should know about an Officer's relatives.

Oh, and a cop's relatives also end up on that same registry. So would a cop if he were to get a medical marijuana certificate. As noted in the article, however, he'd lose his job.


That's some bullshiat man. You should be able to. Fight the power.

Certainly looks like it is impossibly hard for some idiots to give up their Devils.
Peeps, the lies about one of the safest pharmaceutical plants on the planet have been outed.
Get up to speed, prosecute and hang the sociopaths stealing your money and locking up your relatives with their phoney War on Drugs..

hahahahah
I dont believe the police have any business poking into the private business of anyone.
drugs, prostitution, gambling
but those assholes do it anyways
so FARKEM


So in your blind hatred for all cops who are all bad and evil for enforcing laws that the voters have supported for decades, your solution is to brainlessly biatch about their unions. Unions who are apparently pushing for cops to have the right to do the very activities you hated them for enforcing laws against?

What a mind-numbingly stupid person you are acting like.

Igor Jakovsky: HIPAA? anyone? HIPAA?

Thats the part I found offensive. I wonder how HIPAA may apply in a case where you would have to notify your department of your relatives medical conditions.


It doesn't apply.

HIPAA only applies if you are providing care to a patient in any capacity, or engaged in the handling of protected health information of that patient for any reason. It does NOT apply to family members in the least, unless that member is employed by an organization providing healthcare to that patient.

HIPAA also does not prevent mandatory PHI disclosures that are required by state and federal law.

The policy, issued Jan. 1 and obtained by The Enterprise, says officers are banned from using marijuana for medicinal purposes or from becoming caregivers, those legally allowed to assist a qualified patient's use.
The officer has to provide Chief David Majenski with the name, address and relation of anyone who falls under this requirement.


HIPAA? anyone? HIPAA?

why did gov scott ban all other public sector unions but not those unions?

Police and fire unions are probably the worst, most corrupt public sector unions in america.
They are a clear and present danger to all americans. Serve and Protect? not so much.
cover up and abuse power? mhmm

/yes, we know, where you live in mayberry, all the cops are super. I am talking about all those other places.
