Greg Pound on the Patch Podium: Shaping Drug Laws

Each of the Pinellas County sheriff candidates took a moment on the Patch Podium to explain — in his own words — what the sheriff's role should be in shaping laws for prescription pain pills and other "legal highs."

Each week, we're asking each of the Pinellas County sheriff candidates a question that's important to you, the voter, so you can be informed come ballot time.

This week, we asked:

  • What role should the Sheriff's Office have in shaping legislation related to prescription medication abuse and "legal highs" such as herbal incenses (i.e., K2, Spice and bath salts)?


Editor's Note: Greg Pound did not submit a response in time for publication.

We're asking one more question before the  on July 17 at the Unitarian Universalists of Clearwater Octagon Center, 2470 Nursery Road (6:30 p.m.). 

Let us know what issue you'd like to hear about from the sheriff's candidates! You can either participate in the poll below to help us finalize our last question or suggest one of your own. We'll use your input to ask about issues you care about most. 

The sheriff's candidate debate is free to attend, or you can watch Patch's live streaming coverage. It is sponsored by Patch, the  and Bay News 9.
