Springdale police officer Robert Hendrix stops a driver in north Springdale in March 2006. The driver was a suspected DWI driver. Legalization for medical marijuana was touted as a means to give police a break from going after nonviolent offenders, but police must work to eliminate the illegal sale of marijuana while regulating the legal market, said Scott Chipman, the southern chairman for Citizens Against Legalizing Marijuana in California

I find it humorous that the paper used a photo of Robert Hendrix, a former Benton County deputy and former Springdale Police officer has pleaded guilty to one felony count of tampering with a witness and a misdemeanor count of release of unauthorized information, in this story.

I just sampled some of Seattle's finest oil and edibles the other night. I'm ready for Arkansas to start selling their own.

I had two sheriff deputies in the family. they had no problem spotting someone under the influence. When my son was pulled over for speeding the sheriff deputy didn't have radar, so he gave my son a ticket for reckless operation. if an officer sees you weaving or some other sign of dui, he has recourse. it maybe a bit more difficult, however don't use it as an excuse for not following the vote of the people.
