first_imgIf the Clark County Council moves forward and lifts its ban on recreational cannabis businesses in unincorporated areas, it’s expected to generate hundreds of thousands of dollars in additional revenue from taxes on the drug.But the Clark County Sheriff’s Office wants none of it.Clark County Undersheriff Mike Cooke made the statement in a March 27 email exchange with Clark County Council Chair Eileen Quiring. The email was released by the county under the state’s public disclosure law.“Drugs have been destroying families for generations and will continue to do so,” Cooke wrote. “Unfortunately, now our local governments want to increase revenue on the backs of these poor families.”Cooke wrote that legalizing cannabis “was simply exchanging an illegal drug cartel for a drug cartel controlled by the government. The government cartel now acts just like the illegal cartels.“This is why the sheriff’s office has made it clear we want absolutely nothing to do with any revenue generated by marijuana sales,” he continued.last_img read more
