Is this what police departments nationwide have been reduced to?

The war on drugs has become a literal joke.
Two young men who had just gotten off of work decided to stop and get some gas.
One of the young men said the band name "Nickelback" and was overheard by one of Idaho's finest.
The Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office cop officer quickly began 'protecting and serving' by harassing these young men, because he thought he heard "nickel sack."
Seriously, you cannot make up this absurdity. So what if they actually said nickel sack? Does it really matter?
Another local department's website describes Marijuana as such:
Marijuana is the mind-altering substance produced from a plant with the scientific name Cannabis Sativa. The drug is used because its primary active chemical, Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). It may induce relaxation and heighten the senses.

Who in their right mind thinks it is okay to harass, detain, kidnap, and even kill someone who wants to partake in a substance that "may induce relaxation and heighten the senses"?
Those who would lock someone in a cage for possessing or ingesting a plant that makes them feel good are the real criminals!
The two young men in the video below did one thing right, they filmed the interaction. Other than that they consented to searches, answered questions, and engaged the cops who would have otherwise let them go, or made out to be the fools they are after ordering a search warrant and finding nothing.
Here are your tax dollars at work.

This story originally stated that the police involved in the video were from Coeur d'Alene Police Department, however it has come to our attention that it was actually the Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office. We apologize for the mistake.
