We asked our Facebook followers how the Maryland State Police's decision to drop out of the county's narcotics task force program would impact the local war on drugs. Here's what some of them had to say:
Sandon Davila The war on drugs is a complete failure already......it can't get much worse.
Sharon Felton Dalessandro Some of the roads are covered by state police not county so that's interesting
Ryan Sonnenberg Any reduction in drug law enforcement is a good thing. We have real police work to be done, stop wasting everyone's time chasing down young people for smoking pot.
Stephanie Kelley Good!

A narcotics task force focused entirely on dismantling drug crimes in Frederick County is becoming dismantled itself — a result of Maryland State Police pulling out of the effort.
Four Maryland state troopers have been pulled from the task force and one remaining trooper will leave in October, state police spokesman Greg Shipley told The Frederick News-Post.
Cops and crime,
