Former Georgia State Patrol trooper indicted for theft

BLAKELY, Ga. — According to Georgia Bureau of Investigation Special Agent in Charge Steven Turner, former Georgia State Patrol trooper Jaa Tucker, 32, stole marijuana stored as evidence and gave it to two female high school students.

"He (Tucker) was in the patrol when the incident occurred," Turner said. "He gave it to a couple girls in high school. They were legally of age at the time."

Tucker turned himself in at the Early County Sheriff's Office Wednesday at 9 a.m., a GBI report stated. He was released on bond the same day.

The report said Tucker faces charges of theft by a government employee, two counts of distribution of marijuana and three counts of violation of oath of office. The GBI office in Thomasville continues to investigate the case.

This should be interesting and very good reading "if" the Herald follows it. So much can be written about this: law officer, theft, pot, young school girls, trial/plea bargin, prison, etc, etc. etc. You got to laugh at the way he was described as a "former" making it sound like he was already gone from the Troopers job before all this took place.

"They were legally of age at the time." To do what? At what age are we legal to smoke pot now? We better let everybody know. If one can become of legal age to smoke pot, I want to tax it so I don't have to pay so much money.

Taxing MJ would go a long way towards balancing the budget. I wonder if anyone has made that calculation. If it were and probably is a very large number, politicians would run over each other to make it legal. It would have to be larger than the bribes from the pharmacueticals.
