Former Elgin chief now in Colorado says drivers smoking legal pot is ‘difficult for enforcement’


A former Elgin police chief who now leads a police department in Colorado said legalized recreational marijuana brings a variety of challenges, from driving enforcement to hiring practices. Jeff Swoboda has been police chief for about a year in Fort Collins, a town with an estimated 175,000 residents and 10 retail marijuana shops, 10 retail marijuana cultivation centers and four manufacturing facilities of retail marijuana products, plus one pending. There are also medical marijuana centers.
