Failed “War on Drugs” sets records again
Marijuana Arrests Set New Record for 4th Year in a Row, Exceed All Violent Crimes Combined
WASHINGTON, D.C. – 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.
So tragically stupid.
