Officers turning in their badges for security industry forming around medical marijuana

Medical marijuana sales are booming, and so is the need to keep the new industry safe.




  • Fewer cops on streets and someone is protecting a cash business is at least honest work. win win

  • Ive had cops come up and check out my rolling trays at events

  • Being a cop used to mean something, but now it's just a goon job for an out of control gang. You get used up and tossed away, and for what?

  • Because you get paid more working security

  • Hypocrites

  • The Hypocrisy of those who’ve sold there souls to tyrannical bureaucracy…

  • Joe Peterson is a hypocrite, he spent 11 years as a narcotics officer, stealing people's freedoms for non crimes, such as selling a product, or buying a product. Now he's helping the people he used to make victims out of. Bad person. Message to people in the marijuana industry, choose better. If they are a former cop, that means they have no integrity or morals. Do not hire known sociopaths. These people don't deserve a second chance.

  • Why so much security for pot but not liquor they card you like 3 times in the building.

  • One major issue is drug tests. More officers approve of marijuana than ever before. If drug tests only focused on hard drugs we wouldn't care. I know three officers this year who took early retirement so they could smoke. Chill officers are better than stressed officers.

  • Opportunists. So how many former police officers that have ruined young persons lives for possession of an ounce of weed, now are jumping ship to protect the MJ they demonized in the past.
    I suggest this quick switch of career paths tells more of a person's character than anything else.
    We had a dirt bag fascist police chief of Toronto. Now he guards the weed he used to take off the streets. Makes three times he used to. Mercenary. Hypocrat.

  • I changed from PD to security in the cannabis industry. Worth the change pays more No bullshit or drama

  • It disgusts me they can go profit off the same thing they locked people up for!

  • Lml

  • They say cannabis is legal but on their terms.

  • This guy is a true clown without makeup.

  • Good for them. Go where the money is and respect. I don’t blame them at all.

  • You couldn't pay me to be a policeman! Most thankless job in the world.

  • they were locking people up for it for a paycheck and now they are helping people get it for a bigger paycheck. proof that they don't care about your rights or your life. they care about their bottom line only. de-militarize and limit the scope of our police officers. that thin blue line is a joke and never to be taken seriously

  • guys. child molester

  • cops. meth weed hooker. pressing women

  • they are child molesters

  • people on meth

  • LOL imagine going from putting people in jail for weed possession to working for a marijuana dispensary. Humanity is a joke

  • There should only be ONE requirement for police or ex-officers when it comes to applying for or working within a dispensary.
    The one requirement is: Have you ever arrested anyone for a simple marijuana possession during your career as an officer?

    Answer: Yes = Get bent, go find another career because that's super gross to send people to jail and then when the time came you immediately turn around and attempt to seek profit from the very same thing you fucked up peoples lives over when arresting them.
    Answer: No = WELCOME ABOARD! Thanks for not being a fucking sleaze bag during your duty.

  • Not cops joining the marijuana industry before petty weed charges are expunged and innocent men are released from prisons that cops put them in? Not allowing them to be in the industry they pioneered.

  • It's all about the money

  • Can't blame them. Why risk your life arresting thugs our Circuit Attorney won't prosecute.

  • These dispensaries are targeted for obvious reasons…ROBBERY….When the recreational dispensaries get up and running, along with the current facilities, even more security will be needed…Good Luck.

  • Medical Cannabis not marijuana

  • Defund the police !

  • Defund the police !

  • I’m not a weed smoker but I guess it’s safer .. they want to come home to their families 💯
