    AWWW you beat me to it!

    That is the most hilarious thing I have ever heard.

    "I think I am dead."

    LOL

    But now the sad part. He was not charged with possession of marijuana OR taking the pot from people while in the course of his duties as a police officer.

    DEARBORN, Mich. - A police officer will avoid criminal charges despite admitting he took marijuana from criminal suspects and, with his wife, baked it into brownies.

    The police department’s decision not to pursue a case against former Cpl. Edward Sanchez left a bad taste in the mouth of at least one city official, who vowed to investigate.

    “If you’re a cop and you’re arresting people and you’re confiscating the marijuana and keeping it yourself, that’s bad. That’s real bad,†said City Councilman Doug Thomas.


    Sanchez, who resigned last year from the department in this Detroit suburb, declined comment Wednesday to the Detroit Free Press. Police Cmdr. Jeff Geisinger did not return calls seeking comment.

    The department’s investigation began with a 911 call from Sanchez’s home on April 21, 2006. On a 5-minute tape of the call, obtained by the Free Press, Sanchez told an emergency dispatcher he thought he and his wife were overdosing on marijuana.

    “I think we’re dying,†he said. “We made brownies and I think we’re dead, I really do.â€


    Sanchez later told police investigators that his wife took the marijuana out of his police vehicle while he was sleeping. In a subsequent interview, he admitted he got the marijuana out of the car himself and put it in the brownie mix, police said.

    His wife also was not charged.


    Anyone smell the flatulent reek of double standards here?

    I wonder if an evidence problem has something to do with the lack of prosecution? Even with the call and the admission, it would be a hard case to prosecute without actual physical evidence of actual possession. If that evidence could be obtained he should be prosecuted. I suspect a deal was struck here where he lost his job and his certification but wouldn't be prosecuted.

    He should still be fired, even if no criminal charges are forthcoming.

    I agree, and his certification should be pulled. The article says that he resigned.

    Cops can kill leashed dogs while hunting for water-ballooners and stay on the streets.. why would baking pot brownies be any different?

    Hell, give him a medal and make him CEO.
