Cops always have the best dope

Virginia sheriff, 12 employees indicted
"Prosecutors said that for the past eight years, cocaine, steroids, marijuana and other drugs that had been seized by the sheriff's department were resold to the public. A sergeant who agreed to cooperate with investigators was paid off by the ring to use his house for distributing drugs, authorities said."

Isn't it way, way past time to decriminalize drugs? Maybe do what other countries do, treat substance abuse as a medical problem, not a criminal problem. Anyone agree that such a course might make our sad nation slightly better? Using cops to fight drug abuse is like using gravediggers to fight a fatal epidemic.
