A top investigator into the January 6 insurrection on Congress told lawmakers at a recent hearing that Capitol Police shouldn’t be wasting resources busting people for smoking marijuana when they have more serious responsibilities to carry out. And a GOP congressman said he agrees. Lt. Gen. Jeffrey Buchanan, who served as the deputy leader of the Capitol Attack Review Task Force, made the remarks during a hearing before the House Administration Committee on Wednesday. In discussing the law enforcement shortcomings that enabled people to storm the building, he said police would be better prepared if they weren’t pursuing low-level cannabis offenses.
