COLORADO SPRINGS - The Colorado Springs City Council has just announced that they have decided to furlough half of the city's police officers.

Council member Naomi Mittski, 28, who just got divorced this past week, told the news media that the council hated to have to take that step but noted that now with the new Marijuana Law where the buying and use of pot is legal, those arrests have all been completely eliminated.

Ms. Mittski, who pointed out that she is back on the single's market, noted that many Colorado Springs residents had complained that they could not get into donut shops because there were so many police officers there.

One popular donut shop named The Hole In One Donut Shop reported that their donut sales to Colorado Springs Police Department officers had gone from 19 percent to 78 percent.

One officer who was being furloughed told the news media that he has already applied to work as a security guard at one of Colorado Springs hundreds of brand new pot shops.
