DENVER - Law enforcement agencies throughout the state of Colorado are expressing some concern over the new Marijuana laws.
Detective Draco K. Applebush, 47, with the Denver Police Department, who is assigned to the department's narcotics division, says that he cannot believe what the new law has done to the K-9 Corps.
Speaking to Jefferson Sierra with National Focus Magazine, Detective Applebush said that ever since the new pot law was implemented there have been several cases of police dogs becoming overwhelmed with stress.
He stated that the drug dogs were use to tracking down drugs but now that marijuana is legal and readily available the cannabis weed is literally everywhere.
As a result many of the drug dogs have become very confused, stressed, overworked and are having to be retired on an early medical discharge.
SIDENOTE: Several law enforcement departments in the state are having to do away with the K-9 drug dog program and they are being replaced with drug bears who do not get stressed out over huge quantities of marijuana as easily as the dogs do.
