Missoula City Council Supports Lease For High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area
Good question. Meanwhile, the war on drugs chugs along.
Like wherever there’s a High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area established.
Missoula’s PD participates in this wonderful program, and if you want to fill out some info about drug dealers, go to the city website and fill out a report.
And thanks to a City Council vote tonight, the city’s participation (via a lease) with HIDTA will only get stronger. Kudos to Wiener, Wolken, Taft, and Jaffe for voting NO. Boo on Copple for voting yes. And does anyone know why Hertz abstained?
Ultimately it doesn’t matter. When it comes to the WAR ON DRUGS!!!, the Feds call the tune, and local officials dance accordingly. Sure, it’s nice to know more and more sane members of law enforcement are seeing the absolute failure of this impossible-to-win war, but when it comes to the Feds, sanity does not appear to be contagious.
**UPDATE: Adam Hertz abstained because of his matrimonial ties to the Lambros empire, and they are the ones facilitating the lease.
