In 2016 more people were arrested for marijuana possession than for all crimes the FBI classifies as violent, according to 2016 crime data released by the agency on Monday.

Marijuana possession arrests edged up slightly in 2016, a year in which voters in four states approved recreational marijuana initiatives and voters in three others approved medical marijuana measures.

Still picking the low hanging fruit to make it look like they are doing something about fighting crime.

 

The big boys got guns and will fight back but your average stoner gives up without any effort so it's so much easier.

 

Pathetic.
