Law enforcement to talk medical marijuana
BATON ROUGE - Law enforcement agencies around Louisiana announced plans to discuss their positions on medical marijuana this week.
The joint announcement includes the Louisiana Sheriff's Association, Louisiana Chiefs of Police, Louisiana District Attorneys Association, and Attorney General "Buddy" Caldwell.
The announcement from the politically prominent group could affect the fate of legislation working its way through the Capitol now to legalize medical marijuana in Louisiana. Opposition from the law enforcement groups scuttled several other bills already, including one to lower criminal penalties for marijuana possession.
The press conference will be held Tuesday morning at the Louisiana Sheriffs' Association in Baton Rouge.
