    The DOJ says Ferguson police have been practicing racism in about every way possible in a campaign that targets blacks. How can you change the mentality and prejudice of people, much less the police? And…do pot arrests contribute to tension between police & the community they serve? The Police Chief in D.C. Cathy Lanier believes so, "All those [marijuana] arrests do is make people hate us. Marijuana smokers are not going to attack and kill a cop. They just want to get a bag of chips and relax. Alcohol is a much bigger problem." She also said that, "marijuana smokers are not going to attack and kill a cop." The Police Chief in Washington D.C. believes all the marijuana arrests actually harm police relations in the community. Do you agree with her?
