r edundancies in the canine narcotics force
Since cannabis was decriminalized, many a policeman’s best friend has had
to take early retirement. In just one city, St John’s in Newfoundland, Canada,
as many as 14 dogs needed to be replaced. This is both expensive and
time-consuming; it costs about $5,000 to train each new pup, and it can take
from 20 to 50 weeks to complete a training course. The reason for this layoff
is that it’s easy to retrain a dog and add a substance to their repertoire, but
eliminating something from their scent recognition is impossible. Two of the
dogs in St John’s that were old enough to retire anyway were adopted by their
handlers – that made two happy endings! And some dogs will be needed in
certain states in the US where possession of cannabis remains an offence.
