I think not. There are certain ethics that do not change... it's all very simple golden rule shit...
the ethics I'm referring to have nothing to do with drugs though, thats personal opinion. I was referring to the ethical responsibility of a police officer to abide by the law in his or her own practice. I dont extend this to believing in any given law, but a police officer should obey the law.
I also take back saying that it shouldnt be up to the police officer which laws they follow, and enforce. It shouldnt be up to them which ones they follow, however, refusing to enforce minor posession laws has proven to be a very effective sign of solidarity in the movement to legalize.
