4. i agree
i'm not saying corruption doesn't happen. god knows it does, and few places does it happen more than in narcotics units. all that money around, and all that drugs. i do know a cop who worked the drug unit and ended up getting addicted to illegal drugs. i'm not sure if that's "corruption" in that she didn't screw over anybody but herself. our dept. has rules that limit the amount of time that people can serve in drug units, and i think that's a good thing. rotating new blood into the assignment helps ot get rid of the "entrenched i can do whatever i want" mentality.

it is not LEGALLY a conflict of interest for a cop to advocate for legalization. it's just not exactly going to endear them to their supervisors in many cases, and that's just not the kind of heat yer average cop wants to deal with.
