Icon09 Police Chief Apologizes for Citing Urban Legend in Testimony About Pot Legalization

An Annapolis police chief is apologizing for citing incorrect data during testimony opposing the decriminalization and legalization of marijuana. On Tuesday February 25, 2013 Chief Michael Pristoop testified in front of the Maryland Senate Judiciary Committee during which he indicated a number of deaths occurred in Colorado on the first day of marijuana legalization in that State.

Pristoop later discovered that the numbers presented were not accurate but an urban myth.
