There is evidence that police in the Dallas/Fort Worth area are moving away from crimes related to marijuana and shifting focus to a more problematic drug: methamphetamines.
Recently, the Dallas police chief announced that he is in favor of officers not arresting those found in possession of two ounces or less of marijuana. Around the same time, the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) made a huge $45 million bust of methamphetamines in Dallas.
It’s no secret that methamphetamines are dangerous drugs. Their consequences extend from personal self-destruction to society at large. The methamphetamine laws throughout Texas reflect that gravity.
