As cannabis is legalized in more and more states with each election cycle, law enforcement’s approach to policing pot is also changing. In legal states, cops are abandoning the antiquated “War on Drugs” approaches that have been used for decades to nab everyone from harmless recreational users to dangerous drug traffickers. Instead, more nuanced and thoughtful tactics are currently being designed and adopted to comply with new laws and regulations.

Join MERRY JANE News correspondent Adrian Nuñez as he explores the ways that cannabis reform is impacting policing, from the training of drug-sniffing dogs for K-9 units, to the number of traffic stops and justifications for them, to DWI testing, and more. Pay close attention, cannabis connoisseurs. Even if you are in a legal state, you should always know the laws, and how police are enforcing them.
