The police department needs money. Instead of raising taxes, here’s a good idea: Why not take all of the marijuana that the police seize and turn it over to a licensed seller who, in turn, could sell it to medical marijuana card holders?

In one bust, nearly 40 pounds of marijuana were seized, along with thousands of plants. You do the math.

To me, it seems like a waste to burn it when it can be used for something positive.
