Tickets for Pot and Drunks

Des Moines, February 8, 2006 – If you’re a happy drunk or get caught with a little pot, you should be o.k. That’s the message from one Iowa sheriff tonight.

Johnson County Sheriff Lonny Pulkrabek says his department needs help because it’s stretched to the limit. His office handled high profile cases like the kidnapping and murder of Jetseta Gage and the daily strain of tracking down sex offenders so he wants to give certain criminals a break to ease that strain.
