'INDIANAPOLIS — After 20 years in law enforcement, Indiana State Police Sgt. Lou Perras knows this: Marijuana is like the Rodney Dangerfield of illegal drugs — it gets no respect.
Earlier this month, Perras and a team of state troopers launched their annual outdoor campaign to eradicate cultivated cannabis. But as in years past, their war on drugs includes combating the public's cavalier attitude toward pot.
“People have this attitude, ‘it's just marijuana,’” said Perras. “That's a sad misrepresentation of this drug.”'
Awww, these bastards have such a tough life, let me get my little violin out.
