Hawaii Law Enforcement Should Not Enforce Federal Laws
- Hawaii Attorney General Mark Bennett
- United States of America
Municipal and state law enforcement officers are sworn to uphold Hawaii State Law and not federal law. The Hawaii Medical Marijuana law is in conflict with federal law and confuses law enforcement officers as to which laws they should enforce and uphold.
The California Attorney General issued a statement which alleviated this confusion within California by stating that California Law Enforcement officers were to uphold State Law and local ordinances and not federal law.
Local and state law enforcement officers are hired to enforce local and state laws. Federal laws are not their concern. Only federal law enforcement officers should be enforcing federal laws. For this reason, local and state law enforcement officers should take no part in enforcing federal laws, which include assisting the DEA on their raids of medical cannabis patients.
We the undersigned, call on Attorney General Mark Bennett to issue a statement directing local and state law enforcement officers in Hawaii to enforce and uphold Hawaii laws and not take part in the enforcement of federal laws which contradict Hawaii State Laws and take away the rights of the citizens of Hawaii in deciding their laws.
