Reader: Smoking pot off-duty would help cops' dickhead level

Marijuana advocate Mason Tvert's recent argument in favor of allowing police officers to use marijuana off-duty inspired some humor among our readers, including one who wondered what a policy shift would do to doughnut consumption. Others looked at the subject from a mellower perspective. Here's an example.

Justin Kershman writes:

If the proper U.A's were done all the way around for employment...anybody should be able to smoke off of work on their own time! Might even help with the dickhead level of the officers in most P.D's and S.O's.

Again @DenverWestword STOP hiding the FACT that if you're a regular user of #marijuana -you're a 'prohibited person' who may not possess firearms or ammunition, or be a Cop per 18 USC 922(g) 3 !!! zzz www.ak47world.com zzz

Well, there are lots of bad cops out there. It depends on what area you are in.

Maybe. But, an a-hole, is an a-hole no matter what substance(s) he or she is on.

It's only fair, that cops should be able to use off duty.

I've never encountered an asshole cop, but I've seen a lot of people treat cops like shit. Maybe it's not the cops that are the problem, but the person writing this comment.

You can't judge an entire department by the 90% or so that's assholes.

I don't think it'll help the cops that are assholes act any better. The cops that act the way they do are on a power trip and believe they are above the law. No amount of weed will calm those douches down. What does it matter anyways? Until marijuana use is legalized everywhere in the United States, they will never be allowed to legally smoke because it is still a FEDERAL crime.

I've met several cops I don't like, that being said, I've met a lot I do like. They aren't all dickheads, just like all pot heads aren't lazy ass junkies.
