    Ban Rock Concerts and Football Games?

    DES MOINES — An Iowa sheriff‘s decision to hand out tickets instead of arrests for small amounts of marijuana invited a lawmaker‘s slap that it would be simpler to ban rock concerts and football games.

    Johnson County Sheriff Lonny Pulkrabek, who oversees the University of Iowa in Iowa City, told a legislative committee he would treat possession of small amounts of marijuana like a traffic violation, allowing hundreds of students arrested each year to graduate without a criminal record.

    “The guy that‘s carrying 50 bales of marijuana … that‘s a different animal,” Pulkrabek said, adding he favored rounding up intoxicated people in a locked “detox center” in lieu of the crowded jail.

    But Republican legislator Clel Baudler, a former state trooper, shot down the notion as sending the wrong message to drug users and abusers.

    “We could simplify law enforcement‘s job if we didn‘t have rock concerts. We could simplify their job a lot quicker if we just didn‘t have football games there where we arrest hundreds of drunks over the weekend.” Baudler said.

    u gota be fing kidding me
    if they even attempted to ban football games their would be mass riots in iowa city i guarentee it. and same goes for rock concerts that all we have is rock concerts and football. wtf else is there to do in iowa except smoke weed?

    I agree with you D.Boone, I live in Creston and all we have is football and concerts in Des Moines. If they take that away from us then what the hell are we supposed to do besides smoke are weed.

    yea maybe he was being sarcastic but he was also attacking any efforts to decriminalize marijuana, the guy that said that will say anything to help his cause, which is why i posted this thread.
