    Marijuana arrests in New York City skyrocket

    More than 50,000 people were arrested last year in New York City for possessing small amounts of marijuana , according to the New York Division of Criminal Justice Services.
    Those 50,383 arrests represented 15 percent of all arrests by the New York Police Department (NYPD)
    On average, nearly 140 people are arrested every day for marijuana possession in New York City, making it the "Marijuana Arrest Capital of the World," said the Drug Policy Alliance (DPA).
    The 50,000-plus figure is more marijuana arrests in one year than the number of similar arrests made by the New York Police Department (NYPD) over the entire period from 1978 to 1996, according to an analysis for the alliance done by Harry Levine, a sociology professor at Queens College.

    Good. Need to arrest more of them.

    delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
    promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
    holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
    possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'
