One Arrest Every 36 Seconds


No, not for porn ... for pot!

The latest figures are out, and for the fourth year in a row, U.S. marijuana arrests set an all-time record in 2006, according to the just-released FBI Uniform Crime Reports. Marijuana arrests totaled 829,627, an increase from 786,545 in 2005. Similar to previous years, 738,916 or 89 percent were for possession, not sale or manufacture, and marijuana possession arrests again exceeded arrests for all violent crimes combined. 

Let me repeat that: "and marijuana possession arrests again exceeded arrests for all violent crimes combined."

One arrest for marijuana possession every 36 seconds in 2006. 

Your tax dollars at work.
