A Cop-Free Pot Hearing?!?

This is an auspicious day! I do believe we've turned a monumental corner. But, man, are these hearings getting testy, as the few remaining devout authoritarian prohibitionists desperately cling to their purloined power over others' peaceful lives.

HB1625, "relative to penalties for possession of marijuana in the amount of one ounce or less and the cultivation of marijuana plants" -- 'decrim' -- gets an animated airing before the NH House Criminal Justice Committee, 2/13/2014.

There's something that I can't quite wrap my mind around, though. The AG's lackeys have repeatedly stated in pot hearings this year that they wouldn't save any money were pot penalties lessened or even eradicated. They say they'd just re-purpose the time and money to other prosecutions, particularly, they note, heroin. So... Currently they're prioritizing marijuana prosecution over heroin...?
