MSNBC’s reporterette and some cop were just on spouting immeasurable outrage about this story:
Barry Cooper sells a DVD on how to stash pot in your car without getting caught. This fall he will release a second one on how to keep police from raiding your home for marijuana.
Now for the kicker: Cooper is a former narcotics officer once considered among the top cops in Texas, where more marijuana is seized each year than in any other state.
The formerly straight-laced lawman has become a shaggy-haired militant for the legalization of weed.
Six months ago he released “Never Get Busted Again,” in which the former star of West Texas’ Permian Basin Drug Task Force gives tips on hiding marijuana (dashboards are rife with nooks and crannies) and throwing off drug-sniffing dogs (coat your tires in fox urine).
Good for him. Our marijuana laws are absurd, our attitudes towards marijuana arearchaic, and we spend entirely too many resources and ruin too many lives over the stupid weed (which personally I think is a terrible drug- I will take my drugs in the form of a stiff martini, thank you). Anyone brave enough to extend the middle finger to the law enforcement community and their self-enriching attitudes about drugs gets a big “ATTA BOY” from me.
