Chicago's Top Cop Questions 'War on Drugs'

Jody Weis says rising violence is a bigger issue for police on the street.

WEIS: I hate to say it, but if you have a gang that’s simply selling drugs and not killing anyone, that’s not on our priority list. There are far too many that are engaged in simple violence.

Weis says the price of cocaine hasn’t gone up in almost twenty years. That leads him to believe the supply remains steady, despite government efforts to stop the flow of drugs.

When asked if marijuana should be legalized, Weis wouldn’t offer a direct answer. He says that question should be left to legislators.
Now if only someone could take Daley on for his stance that on guns that he had espoused the other day.
