And in other news, police arrest more people for public nuisance
infractions than for marijuana
crimes. More people are arrested for driving under the influence
of intoxicants than for driving on a suspended license
Oh, and did the statistics include any information about the unsolved cases? Cops only arrest the marijuana cases because they are easy to execute: pothead and pot are in the same car or boat. Cops have a harder time finding the perpetrators of the more violent stuff.
One could say, the "milder" the infraction, the more people will deviate from the law. Thus, it would be a big non-surprise if marijuana arrests outnumbered violent arrests.
