Surprising Casualties in War on Drugs

search and rescue

We often speak of the ongoing “War on Drugs” and all of the casualties associated with it.  Typically, most are referring to those who are murdered in Mexico as a result.  We at marijuana.net also speak of the victims in the United States which include non violent incarcerations, families ripped apart, violence associated with gangs, and the jobs and tax revenues lost from our failed policy.  Unfortunately, we recently learned of a new tragedy associated with marijuana laws.  In Pueblo County, Colorado, two men were searching for illegal marijuana grows by airplane.  Sheriff’s Captain Leide DeFusco and former Police Captain  John Barger crashed in a plane while searching for the illegal grows.  John Barger was reportedly a flying enthusiast and was piloting the aircraft.  Many locals volunteered in the search for the two men.  The incident is devastating.  The two men were doing what they have been trained to do and we hope in the future such risk will not be necessary.  Hopefully illegal grows will dissipate and regulation will take it’s place.  Marijuana.net extends our condolences to the family and friends of bothy Captain Leide DeFusco and Captain John Barger.
