The worst thing that medical cannabis prohibition has done in Oklahoma (and drug war at large) was thoroughly corrupted our law enforcement & criminal justice system.
Moody mentioned that: everyday at that courthouse he sees police officers committing felony perjury to sustain misdemeanor marijuana cases. Massive amount of money is involved that police are motivated to lie & the DEA policy is to lie to make the searches good. This has even bled over into the courts where irrational reasoning gets set forth in opinions. About 2 or 3 months ago Oklahoma finally adopted US vs Leon which basically means that if an officer serves a bad warrant in good faith, then his good faith cures that bad warrant. So all they have to do if they want into your home is that 1 officer can swear out a totally false affidavit knowing it to be false & that officer can acquire warrant from a judge & hands that warrant over to another cop who did not know that the affidavit was false. The drug war has gutted us of our freedoms. Now we have militarization of the police: cops no longer serve warrants by politely knocking on the door & they but the door down. To put a stop to this corruption, we must legalize cannabis.
