Illinois Police Just Claimed if Marijuana is Legalized, They'll Have to Kill Their Police Dogs

Chad Larner,  the training director of the K-9 Training Academy in Macon County, Illinois said in a recent interview that police departments throughout the state may have to euthanize drug dogs if marijuana is legalized. Larner said that it would be abusive to retrain the dogs and that it could even be impossible. He also said that the dogs are trained to not be social because that is what the job requires.

According to The Pantagraph ", Because many K-9s are trained not to be social so their work won't be affected, Larner said a number of dogs would likely have to be euthanized."

Other police in the state seemed to have similar feelings on the subject.

Assistant Police Chief Steve Petrilli of the Normal Police Department said that it would be "impossible" to retrain the dogs.
