    A casino, pot, cops, and a swim to a Missouri River sandbar

    Good grief. Just legalize it already, before somebody drowns.

    Man suspected of smoking pot at casino flees by swimming to Missouri River (Kansas City Star)
    A man suspected of smoking marijuana inside the Argosy Casino in Riverside eluded authorities this morning after jumping into a creek and swimming toward the Missouri River.

    Riverside police received a call for assistance about 4:30 a.m. from the Missouri Highway Patrolís Gaming Division. They were in a foot chase with a man believed to be in his 20s.

    A witness told police that the man reached a sandbar and was standing on it. Police, however, couldnít get to him without swimming in the river.

    By the time rescue boats got to the sandbar, the man was gone. Police believe he slipped past as they were setting up a perimeter.

    Authorities do not believe the man drowned.

    Legalize and tax it and move on.

    Those comments at that link are classic. I wish they gave the name. Is it legal to gamble there under 21?

    Now I have lyrics running through my head "Legalize it. Don't criticize it". Thankfully the kid didn't flippin drown.
