Broward: home of odd trends and the pot-smoking judge

Though many sheriffs are looking at budget cuts, several law enforcement sources said they don't know of anyone other than Broward Sheriff Al Lamberti planning to ax drug treatment in the jails.

Howard Babb, president of the Florida Association of Public Defenders, had this to say about Broward County:

"Honey, there is no rhyme or reason about Broward. Ya'll start all kind of different trends. Didn't you have a judge smoking dope in the park?''

Yep -- that's Broward. Judge Lawrence Korda retired in 2007 a few months after he got busted for smoking pot in a Hollywood park. He was given a citation and ordered to take a drug course.
