Cops Ponder Life After Possible Passage of Prop 64

Law enforcement has a lot of planning and preparation to do before the possible passage of Proposition 64. And much of that legwork is already underway.

On Thursday, the Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training discussed the prospect of a post-64 world at its meeting in West Sacramento. Some of the items on the menu included questions over the legality of pot use and firearm ownership and how to deal with illegal grows under the new law. There’s also the issue of impaired driving, which is important to users and cops alike.

If recreational pot gets the green light, “the majority of our training and guidelines will need to be updated and many new training courses will need to be developed and presented,” the Commission has acknowledged.
