Candidates for Deschutes County D.A. Debate Legalizing Marijuana


Current Deschutes County District Attorney Patrick Flaherty and his challenger John Hummel were aksed in a recent debate their feelings on legalizing pot.

 

John Hummel says he'll enforce the law.

 

"The community tells you what the law is and the community trusts you to enforce it.  Whatever the marijuana law is is what we'll enforce. If it's legal, it will obviously be easier to enforce. What's my personal position?  I'm concerned."

 

Current D.A. Flaherty believes it will result in more deadly accidents.

 

"I believe as DA and also my personal belief that it would be baleful, not healthy for our community to legalize marijuana.  That's because I see all  the driving under the influence cases.  We can predict that there wil  be more DUII, more vehiclular assaults and more mangled bodies in cars."

 

Flaherty also has concerns about increasing the availability of marijuana to children and what they will mean in terms of addiction and brain development.
