VIDEO: Ohio Officer Suspended for Wearing Pro-Pot Pin on Uniform

A Vermilion (OH) Police Department captain is suspended from his duties, accused of openly supporting the legalization of marijuana while he was in uniform, reports WJW.

Capt. Michael Reinheimer posted a photo on Facebook of a button, which read “I support legalize 2016." It apparently referred to a new effort to legalize pot in Ohio.

Reinheimer admitted he wore the button above his badge while he conducted the department’s annual police auction on Saturday.

On Monday, Vermilion Mayor Eileen Bulan placed the captain on administrative leave.

Well that wasn't too bright of him.

What does in private is still the purview of the department
What he does in uniform represents the department and government at large. We cannot show bias to any legislation
As a California peace officer substantially and negatively affected professionally and personally by pot behavior I have to say...
Captain.. You are seriously misguided. I hope you receive the reprimand you so consciously deserve.
Come spend a month in the emerald triangle and see the disaster the marijuana creates.

ANY officer knows better especially a high ranking supervisor. Would he support his troops wearing anti pot legalization? Doubt it. He obviously has other issues he needs to be held accountable for too. In a word "idiot". Your time is your time, the departments is the departments and you knew better, you just felt above the rules and wanted to make your point, which you did. Now the Department must make thiers.

I guess being a Captain he assumed he was invincible. Or he's just flat stupid. I don't care what your beliefs are, when you pin that Badge on your a COP. Don't use it to push your own beliefs. Blues, Stay Safe. And smart.

How does someone that STUPID pass the Captain's exam??? 🤔...Or was he politically appointed?🤓

Wonder when his last "Golden Flow" was? If he's showing so much support, maybe he's supporting it another way. Just saying.
