TBI opposes marijuana legalization

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WVLT/WREG) -- Though some states have legalized marijuana, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is taking a hard stance against the idea, CBS affiliate WREG reported.

TBI listed processed marijuana as the drug it seized the most of across 2018.

Assistant Director T.J. Jordan said the TBI is "adamantly against" the legalization of marijuana.

“It amazes us in drug enforcement to know the scourge that drugs put on our communities, our state, our nation, that we would open up Pandora's box to let another drug with psychoactive effects out there and legalize it," Jordan said.
