Sheriff Williamson Stands Strong Against Medical Pot

Another controversial piece of legislation is drawing a strong reaction from a top local law enforcer.


Sangamon County Sheriff Neil Williamson is staunchly opposed to a bill that would let doctors prescribe marijuana to treat the symptoms of serious illnesses, from cancer to AIDS.


Williamson says if marijuana is authorized for some people, it will inevitably fall into the wrong hands, giving teenagers more access to the drug.


Williamson says he opposes any loosening of marijuana laws, calling it “another chip away in our society.”
